This week was full of treats for me. I went to a 30 Seconds to Mars concert at The National in Richmond, VA. The venue is awesome and there isn't a bad seat in the house. Well there aren't any seats because it's standing room only (aside from the balcony). The concert was so much fun and the energy of the crowd was crazy.

While we were in Richmond, we visited Fountain Bookstore. I had never been there before but made it a point to check it out. As I've mentioned before there aren't any independent bookstores were I live, so when I visit a new town, I like to check out the local book scene. The owner, Kelly, was very attentive and gave me a few book recommendations while I was there and even recommended a great place to have lunch. I loved visiting the store and will stop in the next time I am in town.

Since I couldn't pass up giving an indie bookstore my business, I ended my self-imposed book buying ban a day early and got some really great books. They are supposed to be my Valentine's Day gift from my hubby. He told me to get five which I thought was excessive (haha) and picked out only four.I guess he doesn't know that I have Delirium coming in the mail.

I also won some fun treats which arrived this week. I won BADD from Random Buzzers. I love the paintball themed cover. I also received a The Replacement themed charm bracelet from Brenna Yovanoff and I Know It's Over tote from C.K. Kelly Martin. I received the book a few weeks ago, and the tote just came this week. I love it! Thank you all so much!

I can't wait to see what you got in your mailbox this week.


  1. What is the tote about? Twilight? You got a good haul! :)

  2. I really want to read Shiver it sounds really good! If you have time checkk out my YA blog! :)

  3. THE FATES sounds like it could be really interesting. How fun that you went to an indie bookstore. I don't think I've ever been to one, but will definitely look up some around here.

  4. Congrats on all the good stuff.
    Shiver is excellent.

  5. You got some very good books. I really like anything by Maggie Stiefvater. Happy reading!

  6. I have Shiver also... I started reading it, but couldn't get into it. I'm anxious to see what you think. Maybe I should give it another chance? I've heard such great reviews. Enjoy your books this week! :)
