Oh my gosh look at all those fabulous books! I adored Clarity and thought Prom and Prejudice was really cute. I've read a lot of reviews for that one where people tore it apart for not being as brilliant and Jane Austen's version, but it certainly didn't seem to me like it was supposed to be, it was just a cute, fun, quick read:) And lucky you getting Where She Went, can't wait to see what you think!

I have not read Shiver and Linger yet. I am looking forward to those. I also have to read If I Stay before I read Where She Went. And yes, I'm not expecting Prom & Prejudice to be like Pride & Prejudice. It just seems like a re-telling of a great story.

Nice book haul!

I really want to read Shiver and Linger, but I haven't had the chance yet. Going to have to track down some copies before too long, because they seem like really interesting books!
