Yay for The Sixth Extinction! I'm excited to hear what you think about it, and it's something I want to read too.
I want to read Dirty Chick too.
Hope you enjoy Dirty Chick! I put While You're Reading on my TBR after seeing Melwyk's post about it too!
I feel like I should know this, but have you read The Princess Bride? I love the movie but haven't read the book (kind of scared to!). I was gifted As You Wish for Christmas and and looking forward to it.
I loved the movie Princess Bride. Someone gave me the book and I just couldn't get into it. I think it was all those long asides, and I just didn't find it as amusing as the film. The writing style didn't quite work for me. Which was a disappointment.
I've been worried about the same thing. I bought the ebook when it was on sale but I've been avoiding it!
