In My Mailbox

Area author Rosemary Clement-Moore did a signing last weekend for her newest release Texas Gothic, which of course I didn't miss. Though she just signed books, I still had an awesome time hanging out with people before we grabbed Rosemary and headed off to The Cheesecake Factory for an early dinner and, well, cheesecake. And while I did get a picture of Rosemary and me... my camera went MIA this week in my apartment (I blame the dog, and that also means these pics were taken with my phone so sorry they look weird...), so those will have to come later. But in the meantime... with that... I bring you guys this week's books, both bought and for review!

For Review:
The Pledge by Kimberly Derting
Blood Ties by Mari Mancusi
The Predicteds by Christine Seifert
Stoner & Spaz by Ron Koertge
