  1. You have most of my most anticipated releases on your list! I’m also looking forward to the U.S. release of Black Light Express (Railhead’s sequel).

    • Yes! That definitely makes sense. I’m quite grateful to get the ARCs, otherwise I would be in the same boat!!

  2. Your book reviews are amazing. I base what I read off of what you recommend! I wanted to ask you do you have the link for the short stories for Throne of Glass? Thanks

  3. Ugh, I cannot wait for Caraval! I hear nothing but the best about it! And I need to get reading The Star-Touched Queen series. But that backlist TBR, it’s something I need to conquer first.

  4. I am looking forward to many of the books on the list but my favorites that are coming out is The Dire King (Jackaby #4) by William Ritter and Murder Among The Stars (Girl About Town #2) by Adam Shankman!

  5. I’d like to know whether anybody seen of DietOramy diet plans regime (google to learn more)? I’ve seen of it from a friend who already lost lots of extra fat, but he’s kind of a fanatic, so is there anybody ordinary out there :O to testify the? particular capability of this diet plans regime?

  6. See on mingi karm enesepiitsutamine, mis tegelikult ära väsitab, et tahaks jõuda seda seda seda ja seda, aga ei jõuaa.Mul ei ole isegi last ja ma isegi ei korista ka nii palju, ega küta tubasid soojaks ega tee 14tunniseid tööpäevi Ja ma ikkagi olen kaa nii hullult väsinud, sest ma mõtlen koguaeg neile eneseteostuse lollustele.. päriselt ei teosta ennast kaa, sest ei jõua praegu lihtsalt See on see seletamatu «kevad»väsimuse needus lihtsalt äkki? Päike tuleb juba!!

  7. Everyone eats sugar. Your body can’t exist without it..Theres sugar in fruit but, it is better than table sugar which she probably avoids. I really wonder how truthfully celebrities are about their diets. Everything they say becomes an advertisement and, I wouldn’t be shocked if sometimes they fib because they’re getting a kickback from some company. That could just be the conspiracy theorist in me tho

  8. There are a lot of parallels in terms of the gender composition of teaching and social work, too, Carrie. What do you think would make a difference? Is unionization the answer? Is it political action? Is it uniting with other, ‘downtrodden’ professions? Does advocating for ourselves really take away from advocating for our clients, or, in fact, would enhancing the power of our profession put us in a better position to advocate for our clients? Is our reluctance to advocate for ourselves an extension of our overall inhibitions about collective action?

  9. I’d just go ahead and settle with them. Your credit/Fico score is already in the toilet. Settle and save yourself some money. And DON’T get into that kind of debt again. Pay cash next time, with some of that money you have. Put a chunk into savings too, don’t fritter it away.

  10. Forumurile sunt mai greu de administrat de aceea multi oameni prefera sa scrie pe blog-uri. Eu prefer forum-urile pentru ca sunt mai iteractive si ai libertate mai mare de exprimare. In plus, pe un forum este un moderator care nu da voie oricui sa posteze orice fara legatura cu subiectul.

  11. 261Haluaisin huomauttaa, että laktoosittoman ruokavalion tapauksessa voisi hyvin käyttää laktoosittomia tuotteita ruuan valmistuksessa. Nykyisinhän löytyy kermat, maidot yms. laktoosittomina versioina, jotka maistuvat samalle kuin alkuperäiset tuotteet.Mielestäni ravintoloiden kannattaisi tehdä tehdä kaikki maitoa sisältävät ruuat ja jälkiruuat suoraan laktoosittomina versioina, niin meille laktoosi-intolerantikoille löytyisi paremmin valinnanvaraa nykyiseen verrattuna. Terveet ihmisetkään eivät tästä kärsisi edes maun muodossa.

  12. So many good books to look forward too. I’m anxious to read An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson. Can’t wait!
