Week in Review: The Awesome Books Edition!

Week in Review

The Awesome Books Edition!

I bought way more than I needed to this week, but it was time to stock up on my paperbacks again!  I also received some incredible e-ARCs this week, and I'm proud to say that I have already read three of the books I've acquired and began a fourth.  That's a first for me! :)

  3. Great post! You got some good books! :)

    I just wanted to make sure you've gotten my email about judging for the fairy tale Book Battle? I've had problems with my emails ending up in Spam folders, and since I haven't heard from you, I wanted to double check. If you're still interested, email me (shadyglade AT mail DOT com) and let me know. Thanks!

  4. Yay! You got a lot of great stuff. I am also excited for Crewel, Butter, and Eve and Adam.
