We got a few of the same books. Carl's already read Spiced and he enjoyed it. I can't get him to write a review, though. I think everyone but me got Every Last Cuckoo.

You are so lucky to get The Color of Lightning! I had that as one of my Waiting on Wednesday's awhile back. I love the cover too. First Comes Love, then Comes Malaria is a hilarious title! Book sounds like it would be cute too! Enjoy your reading!
