  1. So many books on here that I want to read. I need to catch up with the Seanan McGuire books – plus her Toby Daye series. I’ve bought at least the first Sarah Galley but still not picked it up and I’m seeing all sorts of rave reviews for the Bot books which are giving me a serious case of ‘grabby hands’ – I have to have them all! Now I just need to figure out how to create more time out of fresh air and my plans for total book domination can begin.

    • Ha, if you figure out how to invent more reading time, please share your secret! The Toby Daye series is so wonderful — it absolutely captured my heart. 🙂

  2. Finally getting around to Every Heart (and possibly the others) was on my to do list for the year. I’m running out of months. lol I’ve been hearing such incredible things about Martha Wells’ stories too that I want to make time for those as well. Great list!
