In My Mailbox

I've been on a book buying ban for a few weeks now and, shockingly, I've stuck to it! Mostly, I'm going to the Houston Teen Book Con next weekend know I will be spending a lot of money there. But I might make a post dedicated just to that, especially if I remember to take pictures. I'm really looking forward to it though! But in the meantime, here's this week's books, all of which I am crazy excited for!
