Week 33 of 2014

Yikes! Another week gone. To my surprise, I got an email from Cherise Sinclair (mailing list) about her new novella in the 1001 Dark Nights series. I have seen this series around, but haven’t paid much attention to it, but when you say Cherise Sinclair, I buckle and buy. It was a light and romantic romance from the Masters of the Shadowlands.  Then I saw Larissa Ione had one too in the series. Ding, ding! I went and bought it too, but haven’t read it yet. So this week was spent on NetGalley books and a few must buy authors. Still under budget!

How was your week?

Well…we’re half-way through August and I still have half of my budget $12 and a $10 GC to play with. I made no purchases this week, but I did pick up three free ones.

LOL! That 1001 Nights series will snag me soon too b/c I want to get the Lara Adrian one from it that’s part of the Midnight Breed series.

I have Lara Adrian’s one on my wish list. It’s going to be hard to resist. Especially if I have budget left.
