Books that I accidentally forgot to include in last week's haul
I don't know how I forgot, but somehow I didn't remember that I had gotten these.  All 3 of these were downloaded for free from Amazon

Secrets & Lies (Secrets & Lies, #1)

Aftermath (Secrets and Lies, #2)

Echoes from the Infantry: A Novel

From Author For Review:
Fire Baptized (Habitat, #1)

Dream Magic: Awakenings


You Don't Want to Know by Lisa Jackson

I won this in a giveaway over at Romancing The Book


Even though I have a ton of other books to read I couldn't resist picking these up from the library. I had picked up Breaking Dawn and Hex Hall in April, but then I had to leave suddenly and my sister ended up returning them for me while I was away.

Plus I've always wanted to read a book by Ellen Hopkins and I figured Crank would be a good one to start with.

That's it for me this week, what did you get? Leave links and I'll be sure to stop by and check them out!

You're more generous than me, I'm way too protective of my favorite books to loan them out, lol.

Nice picks! Hope you enjoy Crank more than I did. I didn't realize it was all in verse so I didn't enjoy it at all.

Have a great week!
