      Sandy – I really don’t know how I’m ever going to read all my books – but every week there are more reviews that have me wanting even more!

    Of course you’re adding more books to my TBR list after going through all of these links! I’m hoping I get a chance to read The Quickening this week!

    I hadn’t heard about the remake of All Quiet on the Western Front. I’m very excited about that one!
