  1. This is such a huge week for releases! I’m trying so hard to show a little restraint…I only got three this week (Bitter Spirits, Cursed by Destiny, and Black Arts). The ones that I put on the TBR are giving me a sad little “read me too” face…must resist LOL 🙂

  2. Why oh why did I put myself on a book budget for 2014? This week is challenging…. I think I’m restricting myself to Chloe Neill and Bitter Spirits for the moment…lots of great ones though!
