  1. Fun! I am going to post this tomorrow on my blog. I was one of the people raving about Winger. I LOVED that book. On so many levels. I haven’t read the Throne of Glass series, but I’ve seen so many people list Heir of Fire as the book they read this year with the highest GR Rating.

  2. It was so fun to see your answers, Andi (and all the Sarah mentions were awesome!). You guys came up with such a fun, random survey and I’m glad I was able to join in too!
