I had such an amazing book week this week! I am still going strong on the no buying ban.
What did you get this week???


  1. Wow! Awesome mailbox!!! I haven't heard of The Childe before, that sounds interesting! :) Congrats on sticking to your buying ban! I broke down and bought Passion, I just couldn't resist it! Hehe

  2. Shut Out looks like it should be decent. I'm also very curious about Linda Lael Miller, mainly because of the whole romance stage I'm going through.

    Awesome mailbox and happy reading.

  3. Great reads! I loved Die for Me and really want to read Starcrossed and Sleight.
    My IMM

  4. I'm curious about Shut Out since I never read The Duff and haven't heard to many things about it. Will definitely keep an eye out for that review. Oh Die for Me and Starcrossed in the same week, AWESOME! Hope you enjoy all your books, Missy!

  5. Yay Shut Out!! You will have to let me know when you start that one :-) Cash Sterling.. mmm yummy ;-) hehe

  6. A great mailbox! They all look great! I LOVED Torment :)

  7. Shut Out looks really interesting! That's a really awesome IMM too. Die For Me is still sitting on my shelf, maybe I should open that up now. Enjoy!

  8. Ooohh, Shut Out. WANT. (I loved The DUFF!) I finally bought Divergent, which EVERYONE ON THE PLANET BUT ME has read. I also bought Beautiful Disaster (Jamie McGuire)... and I read it twice. This WEEK. (It's not *YA*... but the MCs are 19. It's AWESOME. Send yourself a sample. Be forewarned - it'll make you break your no-buying ban.)

  9. incredible IMM! Happy reading! :D

  10. I actually just finished Shut Out earlier today, it was pretty good! Also hope you enjoy Spider's Bite, I like that series a lot.

    I actually like the ARC cover of Die For Me a lot better than the new pink cover, I wish they hadn't changed it. I think that dark, gloomy vibe fits the story better.

    Enjoy your nice haul, happy reading!

  11. I really love that Die For Me cover! I love the one the book was actually published with, but there's just something about that one... :) Great books!

  12. I won Starcrossed from fiktshun this week! Trace of Fever...that whole series is yummy to me. :)

  13. Great Haul! I love the cover of the US starcrossed way better than the UK one. I got a signed copy of The Childe and swag to giveaway, post goes up tomorrow. Also got a copy to read to, excited to read it in July!

    My IMM:

  14. Wow, The Childe looks really interesting and I love that cover---very Tim Burton-esque! :D

  15. You got some awesome books this week! I hope you enjoy them! Check out My IMM if you get the chance! Happy reading!

  16. Oh, you got a ton of great books.
    I hope you like them! :D

  17. Alright I need a hard copy of Sleight immediately!! *sighs*
    The Bookish Brunette

  18. SHUT OUT!!! AH! I cannot wait to read that book. The Duff was amazing, and I really love Kody Keplinger, great writer. Can't wait for your review!

  19. Sleight looks and sounds so good! And I can't wait to get my hands on Shut Out!

  20. I will be interested to hear what you think of The Childe. I read it two weeks ago. Happy reading!
