Mailbox Monday

This week I filled a whole book shelf with books. Mostly from the great prices, but sad prices at Borders.  I have had my eyes on many of these for a long time. Now I just need unlimited time to read - don't we all.

Books Received For Review:

Torn by Erica O'Rourke
Everyone has secrets.
Even best friends.

Swirling black descends like ravens, large enough to block the glow of the streetlights. A dull roar starts like a train on the 'L', a far-away rumbling that grows louder as it pulls closer, until it's directly overhead and you feel it in your chest, except this doesn't pass you by. Verity, white-faced and eyes blazing, shouts through the din, "Run, Mo!"

Mo Fitzgerald knows about secrets. But when she witnesses her best friend's murder, she discovers Verity was hiding things she never could have guessed. To find the answers she needs and the vengeance she craves, Mo—quiet, ordinary, unmagical Mo—will have to enter a world of raw magic and shifting alliances. And she'll have to choose between two very different, equally dangerous guys—protective, duty-bound Colin and brash, mysterious Luc. One wants to save her, one wants to claim her. Which would you choose? Is that not just a beautiful and intriguing cover? I have quite a few books to get to before I can get to this one, but will be happy when I can break into this one.

Well, there you have it folks. I went a little overboard in Borders, then went to Tara Hudson's book signing, and then my husband surprised me with three of them.  I will let you guess which three. Oh, this could be fun to find out which you think he might or might not have bought. Let the guessing begin.

Until Next Monday,
