In My Mailbox (17)

Hi everyone! It’s been a busy week for me – shooting, tons of homework, exams and staying up late at my mom’s office. So sorry for the lack of reviews. It’s just that I didn’t have time to post. And I didn’t have internet these past two weeks! But I have 6 reviews ready by tomorrow.

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren. It aims to encourage bloggers to interact with one another and to explore the books received for review, bought, borrowed, won or gifted by bloggers. I’ve received lots of books last week. I still have 3 parcel notices so that means additional books for next week’s IMM.

Silver Moon by Rebecca Rogers (signed)
Under the Stars by Rebecca Rogers (signed ARC)
