  1. I'm really looking forward to picking up Zealot sometime soon, too. Listening to the author's Fresh Air interview on NPR had me fascinated, so I'm really interested in reading. I was recently approved to read The Troop, too...I'm more fascinated by the fact that it was written under a pseudonym! I'm dying to know who the real author is.

  2. Hi Lianne! Just nominated you for the Liebster Award. check out the details here on my blog:
