In My Mailbox [2]

In My Mailbox is a weekly post hosted by Kirsti at The Story Siren and is a chance to share the books we've bought/received over the past week.

Once again this was a week full of new books for me. Too many. Far, far too many cause not only didn't I get get through many, but I'm more than a little over what money I actually have...oops. As a result I'm going to implement a self imposed month long book buying ban, 28th Sept - 28th October. Oct will be a long month...

Anyway, this week I bought:

Stargazer by Claudia Gray [Evernight #2]
Crusade by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie [Cursed Ones #1]
Firelight by Sophie Jordan [Firelight #1] [review]
Fade by Lisa McMann [Dream Catcher #2]
Linger by Maggie Stiefvater [Wolves of Mercy Falls #2]
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare [Infernal Devices #1]

Far too many books...it sort of caused a book shelf re-org, which was not fun but actually worked out well. Shelves look all neat again, though still almost maxed =/

So what did you get in your mailbox this week?

Wow! Full mailbox. Linger was good! Can't wait to hear your review on Clockwork Angel and Crusade.

And a book buying band! Oh my! Don't think I can do that just yet. Still trying to find Blameless and then Alpha will come out and I haven't read it yet, Miss Luckypants! ;)

@Jess lol! I'm like, already freaking out over the idea of a month long book buying ban, but if you saw my credit card bill this month, you'd undersand why I have no choice ;) Oh, though, I will be getting one book in that time, Nightshade, cause it's already preordered, and really, not getting that would be Impossible!!

@Maiawa My review of Firelight is already up on the blog, but short version is I loved it. TBR = to-be-read, so my TBR shelf/pile is the books I've got waiting to be read.
