In My Mailbox

15 Aug

This weekly meme is a great way to let other readers know what books they should be looking out for. In My Mailbox is hosted by the  The Story Siren.  You can find out more deets about it  here.

Lots of great books came in this week. In fact, I’m kinda hoping for no books next week. I am seriously behind on my review books and desperately want to get caught up.

Yeah, yeah, I know. What about that serious book buying ban, right? Well, last Monday sucked the worse and I needed a bit of a pick me up.

      Lacey also sent a hand-written note, but I didn’t want to be a completely dork and post a picture of it. LOL

    Hehe, some great books here. And don’t worry, I threw my ban out the window this week as well, so I’m glad to have some company! 😀

      I love Caine’s Morganville Vampire series and have been wanting to read her Weather Warden series. When I saw the bundle I couldn’t resist. 🙂

    Bans don’t count when you have bad days 😉 I haven’t read the Ember books yet, but they sound good! And yay for Eternal Ones 😀
