I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

In My Mailbox - Biggest Haul Ever?!

Hi guys, for the past two weeks I've been stalking up on books. Reason? There's none. I just got on a roll and went with it. 
I think the only time I've ever had a bigger haul of books was when I was working at a Coles that was being closed down. I bought almost ONE HUNDRED books in a span of two days. That's crazy right? But they were super cheap, plus my discount for working there. It was like a dream come true. So, since that's most likely a once in a lifetime occurrence, this one seems to be holding up as a good second biggest haul. 

First off, I'm going to show you a book I received from Penguin Publishing, but I don't know why. I'm not sure if I enlisted to review it, won it or it was sent out for other purposes, either way I'm glad I've received it. It also came with cuff links that match the ones on the book cover. Funny story that. I received cuff links from the Penguin Publishing group before I received the book. So, imagine getting cuff links in the mail, as a girl, from a book publishing group. I was baffled. Then a few days later I get Bared to You in the mail and it all makes sense. *laughs* 
Bared to You by Sylvia day

I've read this one a while back, but it was borrowed, so I picked it up to read again sometime.

Again, one I borrowed and read, but I want to have it in my collection to re-read someday.

I think that's actually pretty cool and wish I could do that :-)
