(The Witch Hunter #1)

Other Books Coming Out This Week:

I've been such a bad blogger lately!!  Very sorry.  BEA messed me all up with my reading schedule... and with work and summer starting, I've been insane busy!  I plan to get back to my normal amount of blogging ASAP.  June is an awesome month for books.  I can't wait to read The Merciless, it sounds intense!  I also really liked Karen Finneyfrock's first book, so I'm thinking of giving Starbird a chance.  Wicked Games and My Last Kiss also look interesting.  What do you like from this list??

PS- If you haven't read my BEA recap post you can find that here!!
