A Sunday Retrospective (14)

A Sunday Retrospective is inspired by In My Mailbox at The Story Siren and TGIF at GReads!, where I share the books that I've acquired during the week, last week's posts and interesting links.

I've been so, so good about not buying books - and then this week happened. There was an explosion of goodness in my mailbox. I got approved for two awesome titles on Netgalley, Jamie lent me two more books and I went wild and bought four new books this week because of a signing at Books of Wonder.

The Wanderer (Thunder Point #1) by Robyn Carr
Strands of Bronze and Gold (Strands of Bronze and Gold #1) by Jane Nickerson 
(from Netgalley)

Towering by Alex Flinn
The Ward by Jordana Frankel
(both lent to me by Jamie)

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
Hallowed by Cynthia Hand
Boundless by Cynthia Hand
(bought at a signing at Books of Wonder)

Asunder by Jodi Meadows
(bought at a signing at Books of Wonder)
