The Ghost Writer is such a good book. I hope you will enjoy it, Serena. I recently picked up a copy of the author's latest book, The Seance.

Kitty and the Midnight Hour is a good one too. I really enjoy the series and hope you will too!

Almost Home is on my list to read. It sounds like it will be a good one.

Enjoy all your new books, Serena. I look forward to reading your thoughts on them.

Oooh I loved The Ghost Writer. Plus you have some fun Austen monster-slaying for when you are in a special mood! Hee hee. Great list this week!

Serena said...

I'm not sure which blog I saw ghost writer on, but I have been dying to read it. When I saw it in the used bookstore, I was excited.

Supernatural Jane Austen should be good for some quick reading and I am happy to tell you that the giveaway is international for the MJ Tapes.

I just bought P&P&Zombies for my boyfriend for Christmas. He actually asked for it! He has a thing for zombies, so we'll see if he actually reads it. I'm sure I will even if he doesn't!

The Michael Jackson book sounds intriguing.

Happy Reading!

You had a great week! I thought I was getting The Body in the Sleigh, but I guess I'm not. :(

Staci said...

Your mailbox was filled with great stuff!! I loved Shan's books...enjoy!

Kristen said...

Hold on! You husband found you a new used bookstore? I want to trade husbands! Mine tries to forcibly restrain me from the magnetic pull of all bookstores; he'd never show me a new one. ;-)

Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters? I must try out this series sometime. I love the originals, of course!
