So I just finished Moon Called by Patricia Briggs and boy did I love it!  I was all excited to start the second book when I got home this evening because I thought it was in my TBR pile - turns out I was looking at my WL instead!  And I'm way down at the bottom of the list!  I don't think I can stand waiting...and I was so excited to start it tonight.  My own fault because I'm a dope, but annoying!  :-)

I know what you mean Christine! 

 

I have a copy here of Moon Called.  Good to know you liked it.

I just read Moon Called too!  I also received Blood Bound (book 2) within a few days of wishlisting it.  Try this version of Blood Bound there are only 5 wishers!!!

ETA:  I find it better to get the ISBN from Amazon, than look it up in PBS.  Amazon usually posts the books with the most copies in circulation.

I am a fan of that series and the Cry Wolf series also. I plan to start the third, Iron Called, soon. I also plan to read the rest of her books at some point. she is a really good writer!

Thanks for the tip, Sarah!  Now I'm 7th on that WL, but it still is taking too long for me!  LOL - I guess that's a true sign of a really good book.

I'm hoping to start that one soon!  With all these swaps ending the last few days I'm going to have to put it on hold for a few more days.  If you haven't received it by then, I'll be sure to post it to you!

Sarah, thanks again so much for your offer to post to me, but I just came up on the WL - yippee!  And thanks for the tip about the multiple ISBNs.

I just found a setting under my profile whereby I can get an email if someone posts a book with a different ISBN than the one I am wishing for. I used to get such emails when I first joined here, but they stopped. All I had to do was go into my settings and uncheck that option (default it "I do NOT wish"). If it works right, I should get an email that such-and-such a book was posted that I am wishing for, but it is a different version. I have 24 hours (I think) to decide, and then it gos to the next person. Useful option, now I have a lot of free space on my WL to add other books.

Cass - I just wanted to let you know that those notifications DO NOT hold books for you. They are not on WLed ISBNs, but those editions that are available in the system for order, and the first person to the book gets it. If you want to be in the line for an ISBN of WLed book, you have to have it on your WL, you will not get the notifications on those. So in this OPs case, she would not have been told that that book was posted into the system because there was a wish list on it, she had to go get in the line on that specific version.
