In my mailbox: B&N sale edition

Don't Tell a SoulSpeak (Platinum Edition)  WillowWildthorn

Love Drugged
In my Mailbox is a weekly meme by Kristi at The Story Siren (http://www.thestorysiren.com/)Last week I was flipping through twitter and saw several posts about a Barnes and Noble sale. A sale of any kind is just trouble for me, I can't resist. I've learned to resist clothing sales simply because they cost more. But books are a whole different animal. I spent less than $30, so I felt I was a smart shopper.

Bought:

Don't Tell a Soul by David Rosenfelt -- I have no idea what this one is about. I know it's a mystery. I bought it simply so I could get the free shipping!


Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson -- I don't believe in banning books, EVER!! I saw several newspaper articles about this book being banned. I had never heard of it, and I decided I need to read it.

Willow by Julia Hoban -- Amazon.com always recommends books for me, so how could I resist the $2.99 price on Barnes and Noble.com ?

Love Drugged by James Klise -- I saw this on The Story Siren, and I thought it was interesting.

Wildthorn by Jane Eagland -- Again this is one I saw on The Story Siren. I didn't even know what it was about. The cover attracted me more than anything.

Girl, StolenWon:
Sugar Tower
Girl Stolen by April Henry -- I totally forgot I entered a giveaway for this on GoodReads.com. That cover made me think there is a story there. A blind girl abducted and struggling to survive.

For review:

Sugar Tower by Jessica Dee Rohm -- I received a pitch e-mail on this one a few weeks ago. A real estate murder mystery, I'm always a sucker for a murder mystery. A review and blog Q&A will be posted on Nov. 12. Stay tuned!!

What did everyone else get?
