  2. Ooh, The Breaking Dawn soundtrack! I only watched the first film and read up until part way through Breaking Dawn - but I've always loved the soundtracks! Always lots of good music on them! :)

    What's in my Mailbox...!

  8. I haven't bought the Breaking Dawn soundtrack yet though I did listen to it on Rhapsody. I am really looking forward to the score since Carter Burwell wrote it and I liked the score for Twilight.

    The Girl is Murder looks like a book I'd enjoy. The cover reminds me of Judy Blundell's books (What I Saw and How I Lied, Strings Attached). I have been curious about The Warrior Heir and I will probably check it out from the library sometime. Cinda Williams Chima was in my town for a book festival last weekend but I didn't get to go because I was sick. :(

    I hope you enjoy all the books you got this week.

  11. Awesome books, Allison! The Warrior Heir looks really good.
    Enjoy your new books!

  12. I was going to comment on the similarity between Judy Blundell's covers and The Girl is Murder, but Christina T beat me to it! Looks good, either way. And The Warrior Heir sounds exactly like my kind of high fantasy.

    ReplyDelete
  13. The Girl is Murder looks interesting, and I love the old style feel of the cover!

  15. The Warrior Heir isn't part of the Seven Realms series right, it's a separate series? Or are they all part of the same one? I get confused since the book covers all look similar:) I've heard good things about her books though, I can't wait for your thoughts on this one!

  16. I can't wait to read your thoughts on The Girl is Murder!
