Book Haul and Week in Review (96)

This post is dedicated not only to sharing all the books I've received this week but also to share this week's happenings on my blog. This is inspired by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer's The Sunday Post. Also, the title Book Haul is provided by Katie's Book Blog. 

Books Received:
So, I've been in Texas the past week, but now I'm back. This is a couple weeks worth of books. 

Fortunately, while I was in Texas I stumbled upon a Half-Price Books (actually I saw quite a few). This is the first Half Price I've been to, and I went a little crazy (which was stupid considering I had to lug them all back on a plane), but it was worth it. 
Any-hoo. Here we go.

Won:

  1. I haven't read Anna and the French Kiss, but I picked it up recently at a library event, so I'm excited to read it. I've heard good things.
