What Looks Good to Me – August 31, 2011

Hey there! Welcome to “What Looks Good to Me.” Each week I take a look at the Diamond shipping list and slap together a list of the ten things I’m looking forward to the most that week. There’s no real rhyme or reason to the list’s ranking other than the #1 spot which will obviously be the one book that looks good to me that week. Well, enough of this – let’s get moving!
