Welcome to Mailbox Monday, the weekly meme created by Marcia from A girl and her books (formerly The Printed Page) where book lovers share the titles they received for review, purchased, or otherwise obtained over the past week. Mailbox Monday is now on tour, and this month’s host is Diary of An Eccentric. Visit all other Mailbox Monday posts at her blog for the month of March!
Last week I got a few goodies that I wanted to share.. a bit of everything! And where to begin! Illusion & Cove both look awesome! I had read a sneak peek of the first chapter of Illusion, and I was hooked. Can't wait to get to it. (There will be a giveaway coming for it also with my review, so stay tuned!)
