So, since my end-of-the-week post isn't just about what I got in my mailbox or on my Kindle each week -- though that is a big part of it, I won't lie -- I decided to change up the title and intro a bit.  I might tweak the format a bit over the next few weeks, but for the most part, it'll contain the same stuff: stuff I got, stuff I did, and stuff that's coming up on the blog.  Plus, I get to use the awesome GIF you see here and blow kisses to all the people who sent me lovely books and bookish things.  Oh, and I've started linking up to Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews since I'm not using a specific meme title anymore.  April's also doing her own Stacking the Shelves posts on Sundays.  Stop by and say hi!  =)
Oh, gawd, we are going to have the most gorgeous weekend here in Texas and I cannot wait! I've got some gardening to do (those are daffodils from the front flower beds to the right) -- or prep for the garden, at any rate -- this morning and then it's wine and reading time. You have no idea how excited I am for reading in the hammock again. (I got a good start on it yesterday. :D) It is seriously the best, especially when the hubby is being sweet and keeps my glass filled so I don't have to get out of the hammock. Course, then it gets dangerous when I finally do, but that's a worry for later. ;0)

Okay, okay. On to the books. Here's what I scored this week...

From Publishers:

He Will be My Ruin

Thanks to Simon & Schuster, I have an audiobook copy of He Will Be My Ruin to listen to since I traded my ARC before I managed to read it. Oops. I'll only make that mistake once, lol.

Traded:

Look for a new #booksfortrade | Have You Seen This? post coming soon. I made someone else's dream come true this last month and would love to help others...while also hopefully completing some of my own collections. I think that damn Throne of Glass ARC is going to remain elusive for the rest of my life, though. :(

Gifted:



My awesome amazing wonderful friend Sabrina sent me this Valentine's Day package loaded with my favorite candy, a THE TREES SPEAK LATIN bookmark (!), and an ARC of Hemlock, which I needed to complete my collection. She and her little guy also sent Katie those adorable heart-frame glasses, which she pretty much refuses to take off. :P



The lovely Michelle, whom *I* sent to this last round for #otspsecretsister sent ME this gorgeous pillow to say thanks. Isn't it soooo pretty?!? I LOVE IT!!!!

Purchased:

I was *this* close to downloading the audio for Riders by Veronica Rossi this week, but the reviews are all over the place for this book. Might wait till it's available from the library.


So, that's my haul. =) What fabulous bookmail did you get this week?
