Huge, HUGE mailbox this week. First of all, I paid a huge visit to my local independent bookstore, Fiction Addiction, this week and I picked up a load of books. So there's that. Plus, I got two review books in the mail this week. It truly would be an ideal week for a vlog, but I'm not loving the way I am looking right now, so I'm going to pass and do pictures instead.

Running the Rift by Naomi Benaron
PHEW! That's all the pictures. I also got approved for a couple of books from NetGalley. They are:
In the Shadow of the Banyan by Vaddey Ratner
Grave Mercy by R.L. LaFevers
Hanging by a Thread by Sophie Littlefield
It's hard not to go NetGalley crazy, but I only request what I really want to read these days. I haven't fallen behind yet. It's important if you want to keep getting NetGalley books to keep up with your reviews and your reading. You have to prove you are a responsible and dependable blogger. Because of that, I rarely get declined for requests anymore. I'm not saying this to lecture, it's just because I see bloggers all the time saying that they don't get to their NetGalley books, or they are so behind. Don't let that happen to you and only request what you have time to read.
That's it for me this week. What's in your mailbox??
