In My Mailbox (20)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It gives book bloggers the chance to share what they’ve bought/borrowed/received!  I don’t have too much to show this week. My Feb goals are to really try and read the books I have at home instead of going out and buying/borrowing more books. We’ll see how I do, as I really can’t resist a good kindle deal or the library. We’ll see… Bought Harbinger by Sara Wilson Etienne (SIGNED) – I was so so excited to be able to go to Sara’s book signing at Children’s Book World… Read more »

January NetGalley Month Recap

January NetGalley Month Recap

NetGalley January Month hosted by Red House Books ended last week and I think I did OK. I still have a large queue of NG books but I did manage to read some that I’ve been wanting to get to and have whittled the list down a little.

If you’re interested, Red House is hosting a year long NetGalley Reading Challenge. I am not going to sign up… Read more »

If you read my review on the first book, you’ll know that I wasn’t crazy about the female lead and that the story, though it had potential, fell a little flat for me. While I actually liked Undeniably more than Exclusively, the book still suffered from the same problems as the first book which prevented this one… Read more »
