  34. In Honor was a great read, it was so emotional even though it was pretty short. I also got approved for Spirit this week, and I was so excited!! I can't wait to read more about the Merrick brothers, and this time around, Hunter. I'm sure it's going to be as fantastic as normal. <3

    Lovely haul, and I hope you enjoy all your awesome books! =)

  36. Hi, Brandi!

    Oh, I'm so sorry about your back. Hope you get better soon! Take it VERY easy, and make sure your husband 'babies' you! Lol.

    You have a LOT of great books here! I'll have to check them out on Amazon, especially to see if any of the e-books are available in print editions, since I don't read digital books.

    Thanks for dropping by and commenting, and thanks for sharing your great haul!! :)
