Hey guys!
I'm so very excited for all the books I got this week. With it being Mother's Day, I felt the need to spoil myself a little bit, so I ordered some books. :) I can't wait to dig into them.  I was so excited to find Darkness Before Dawn in the mail, I've been drooling over that book for ages! I'm really excited about my Netgalley books, and the books from Scholastic as well. :)

What new books did you get this week??

And Happy Mother's Day fellow moms!

**This post was inspired by In My Mailbox by TheStorySiren, in order to share books received each week.**


  1. YAY Sweet Evil and City of Lost Souls. We must chat once you are done! I am looking forward to it.

    I can't wait to read your review for Darkness Before Dawn. I think it sounds pretty good.

    Great haul this week. Very curious about this mother/daughter bookclub thing. Sounds fun.

  2. Ahh! I can't wait to read Sweet Evil and The Unquiet! They look/sound sooo good :-) Very nice book haul! Hope you enjoy all of them. Happy Mother's Day!
