In My Mailbox (48)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, inspired by Pop Culture Junkie. The books you share do not have to be ones you actually received in the mail. They can be ones you bought at the book store, checked out at the library, or downloaded to your e-reader. The idea is just to share what's on your TBR pile for the upcoming week.

The best part of my week in books was getting my copy of Daughter of Smoke and Bone signed at the Laini Taylor event in Ann Arbor:
Check out my recap of the event here.
