I think you can tell I've been heavily influenced by the TV Book Club from Channel Four these past few weeks. I've been watching the half hour episodes religiously each week and the books sound so good and intriguing, which is why I have five of them in my list this time. I'm especially looking forward to The Sisters Brothers which recieved universal praise on the show. I also picked up I Capture The Castle after hearing it is one of J. K. Rowlings favourite books and not only that but the synopsis sounds enchanting. I purely picked up Everneath on its stunning cover and Supernaturally was a must after reading and enjoying Paranormalcy last year. Finally, The Owl Killers was purchased simply becasue I love owls and I have raed good reviews about it. I can't wait to get stuck in :)

Gah! I really need to read SUPERNATURALLY! It's been in my TBR pile for AGES now! I just keep losing it under my pile of review ARCs. Hope you like Everneath! I totally thought the Tunnels were creepy--Brodi writes fantastic scenery ;D
