  30. Ooh, Name of the Star! I really want to read that! I was in Waterstone's yesterday and noticed that it's 1/3 off in there at the moment, but I'm on a self-imposed book buying ban until I've read a few more of the partly-read books I've got at home :( So NotS will have to wait.

    I love when I find other UK book bloggers through IMM :) New follower here!
