In My Mailbox (30)

IMM is hosted by The Story Siren.

Well, it's been a few (okay, several) weeks for IMM for me. And with good reason! As of two weeks ago, I'm on a book buying ban until August. I kind of dropped an inordinate amount at a certain semi-annual sale from a certain store and promised my husband that I would chillax on the books. Especially because we're going to Vegas at the end of this month, so I'll need as much money as possible to dominate the blackjack tables. At any rate, as evidence below, I'm adhering to my ban rather nicely.


For Review
Darkhouse by Karina Halle
Fury by Elizabeth Miles

  5. Seeing your IMM reminded me of Gravedigger by Melissa Marr. I've been meaning to add that to the TBR pile and completely forgot! It looks like a very fiscally responsible IMM...good luck in Vegas ;)
