Amanda said... is your total here like 15-20 books higher than at 5-Squared??

Lula O said...

Hey you caught me! Only the ones in blue have been reviewed. I'm a little behind, plus things are slowing down on 5-squared (it's a busy time of year) and I feel like I'm hogging all the time there so I haven't been putting as many on that site. Not back to back anyway.
I've still been reading though, like a crazy women in heat! I'll never catch you though. Sheesh woman you read like nothing I've ever seen!

Amanda said...

Nah, just when I become obsessed. It was my way of dealing with the pain of writer's block. I've reviewed 1 book so far in October...

Tanja said...

what did you think of her Fearful Symmetry? I haven't seen your review of it yet.

Lula O said...

Because I haven't even started it yet! I can't seem to get to it. I'll have to shoot for it next year. It's getting luke-warm reviews, but I still want to try it.
