For Review:
What an amazing week for review copies this week!  I'd like to say a massive thank you to the publishers who sent me review copies this week.  I've already read & done reviews for Perfect Chemistry & Vampirates: Demons of the Ocean and I really enjoyed both of these.  I'm about to start reading Rising Shadow as I've only got a week to read this before I need to send it on it's way to Lynsey as part of the International Book Tour.  I'm really looking forward to reading all of these books though - it's such a great selection :o)  Reviews will follow ASAP.
