  6. Queen of Shadows is the next book in the series that I gotta read. I just haven't been able to get around to it yet. I loved these quotes, though. It makes me want to at least try to bump it up on my TBR a little bit. :D

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
