    What’s Grimm Mistresses about? The cover is beautiful!

    Ahhhh I am looking forward to your thoughts on The Doll Maker and When We Were Animals. I’ve decided my Netgalley pile is too big at the moment and so I will refrain from requesting copies. So I’ll be living those two books vicariously through your reviews 😀

      I think I need to stay away from Netgalley. It’s far too tempting and every time I get my stats up another lovely looking book rears it’s head!

    Much envy over your copy of deCastell’s “Knight’s Shadow.” I adored the first book in the series and I desperately want to read the sequel!

      Yeah, going to get to the deCastell books very soon.
