Books: Goliath by Scott Westerfeld

I feel reaally behind but 4 books is not bad :) there is such a difference in speed with bigger books!

My Tbr pile has widdled down because there were one or two books I started and just wasn't into. I'm in a bit of a reading slump! But it feels good to clear the shelves




I'm Using this book for BOOKS DEVOURED Re-Name it challenge. Desert Spear is the sequel to the wonderful fantasy book The Warded Man. This book has really creepy demons so I would rename this: Desert Demons

Good luck with your reading list! ;-)

It was difficult to chose only 5 books for my goal... Especially when I went to my shelves to pick out which 5!

I hope you love WHITE CAT and RED GLOVE... they're two of my favorites!

Good luck... and thanks for stopping by The Hiding Spot! :)
