Amicas and Amicos (that’s Italian), this was pretty much a huge week for me. I went to the annual Penguin Putnam booksale and scored quite a bit.

But first, the books I got for review:

ARCs for review

Review Books

Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton / Choker by Elizabeth Woods / Ten Miles Past Normal by Frances O’Roark Dowell / Unearthly by Cynthia Hand / The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens

AND the reason I am NOT doing a vlog this week:

The full price worth of all of these books is:


This does not include the doubles I bought for giveaway, the books I donated to the shelter, or the books bought for my boyfriend.

I spent $204. Clearly, I made out like a bandit.
