Today was Word on the Street and since I was on a book buying ban, I decided to lift said ban and have a goal of only buying a maximum of 10 books. I bought 9 in total..Glad I didn’t go over my limit though. I also received some wonderful review books from the wonderful publishers as well.

    I’m SO jealous you got to go to Word on the Street! I just live two hours away, but I’ve never been able to go. I really need reader friends in town who would be into stuff like that so I could actually GO! lol You got a ton of great books. I hope you enjoy them! 🙂

    The Diviners looks good, I look forward to hearing what you think if it. I’m undecided whether I should read it. It’s long and apparently, spookier and creepier than it looks. Oh my goodness, that swag is ultra cute – I love! Awesome book haul and enjoy all your goodies!

    Happy Reading 😀

    You got a lot of awesome books and swag this week 🙂 I really enjoyed The Diviners and can’t wait for my copy of The Iron Legends to get here!
