In My Mailbox

This week's In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren

Ok, so I know I said that I would be banned from the bookstores for a while, but I couldn't help but pick up a few books that were on sale at my local Target. After all, it wasn't technically a bookstore purchase. Right? Here's what I bought:

Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese
Willow by Julia Hoban
Wake by Lisa McMann
Fade by Lisa McMann
Gone by Lisa McMann

That's it for me! What did you get in your mailbox?

In My Mailbox

This week's In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren.

Ok, so last night over dinner my dad informed me that he was going to put my on a budget, which means easing up on buying books. Before the budget begins I convinced him to let me have one last shopping trip to the bookstore. He sat a price limit, and I was more than happy to spend my afternoon at Barnes and Noble. I received a ton of books, but unfortunately it may have to last me a loooong time. Maybe I will actually find some time to write some much needed book reviews. In the meantime, check out my Goodreads account for reviews and books that I have recently read.
