The Sunday Post #2: News & Book Haul

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kim @ Caffeinated Book ReviewerThis meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~It's a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog. 

Although this week wasn't as cray as last week--I am excited about the books I won in giveaways and I did buy a few (I wasn't going to but seriously...) I am most likely going to do a different special post when I receive all the books I won from armchair BEA. Which, I fully intend to recycle so be excited! I did include Starcrossed, which I won from Jennifer @ The Relentless Reader during armchair BEA.
I'm really excited about the books I got this week :d AND all the cool giveaways going on this week and next!
