      Seriously it’s like the biggest haul I’ve ever had. I was nervous to share, but I’m like my book community will understand my need to buy when things are all under $2 bucks! =D

      I want to read Girls of Paper and Fire soon and I posted my review for Pride just the other day if you’d like to check it out!

      And yeah, the FRIENDS book looked too intriguing to turn down when it was offered! I’ll keep you posted on it!

      Hahah! Thanks, May! It was all the sales! I couldn’t resist! I want to get to Muse and Vengeful asap, but I’m waiting on the audio of Muse from the library because the narrator (Steve West) is what dreams are made of! lol

      Pride has been a polarizing read from what I’ve seen so far, but I enjoyed it. I posted my review two days ago if you’d like to check it out. =D

      Happy reading, love!
