  1. Great mailbox, Audra (I must say that to you each week because your mailbox is always awesome)! My mailbox will also include some Heyer's :-)

  2. @Melissa -- thank you! I'm super excited about so many of the books coming up -- I wish I could stay home and just read more! Can't wait to see what Heyers you picked up!

  3. The Taker is an amazing book! I just finished it a few weeks ago and loved it! I know you will have a great time with it. Also, I got a few Heyer titles this week as well. They were unbeatable at that price!

  4. I'm looking forward to your thoughts on Q... I'm interested in the character's love for nyc of course, but the rest sounds sort of weird!
