The Monster Report explores the book happenings of Kate and Kristen. Whether it be what we got in our mailboxes, what books we are currently hiding in, or fun stuff to look forward to this week at The Book Monsters, you can find it here. The Monster Report is a spin off of my old Shelf Report, and is inspired by Kristi's In My Mailbox and Sheila's It's Monday, What are you Reading?
Siren's Storm by Lisa Papademetriou
Gifts (from my bday):
Both came from Kristen. The little sneek sent them separately so I was caught off guard by Eona.
