In My Mailbox (19)

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 had a pretty small haul this week, which is good. I am finishing up Netgalley month and for Feb I think my goal will be to try to read the books I have (which are many).

It’s no secret that I bought the first book in the series based solely on its cover (all the gorgeous pink!) and I really thought that the new cover would have a hard time competing. However, Dan Dos Santos does it again and delivers a fantastic… Read more »
