  1. Quite an impressive list! How do you ever decide which one to read next?

    • Thank you! It’s hard sometimes. Right now, I have a good-sized stack on my nightstand, and I’ve been picking from that. I’m currently planning to read through the three books that Al gave me for Christmas 🙂

  2. That’s quite a list, I must say.

  3. Thanks for the link to my review- I’m glad I managed to convince you to read it, and I hope you enjoy it! I want to read some of these books too- I’ve wanted to read Lolitta for ages! Great post! 🙂
