It's been a good couple of days for books.

Yesterday I got a notice from Amazon that my copy of Acheron has shipped. It still has to make it all the way to New Zealand, so I don't know when I'll get it, but a big hooray all the same. Of course, I'm totally worried that it won't live up to expectations, because it has a lot of expectations hanging on it, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed and avoiding reviews like the plague. I want to make up my own mind, thank you.

Today we went to my favourite book store, Barbara's Books, run my my favourite book pusher seller (surprise, surprise, her name is Barbara). I picked up three books (out of the five she had for me): Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs, The Hidden Worlds by Kristin Landon and The Penguin Who Knew Too Much by Donna Andrews.

I can't wait to read Cry Wolf. I'm going to reread Briggs' short story in the On the Prowl anthology first, which sets the scene for the book to remind myself of that and then on to the main novel. (I should be strong and finish my current book first, but I'm not sure that I'm that strong.)

I am going to read this book eventually but it won't be for a while because I want to catch up on the series first.

I hope you enjoy it. I have seen one review so far and they loved the first part, not so keen on the second!
