Hello everyone!  Beg, Borrow, & Steal time again.

If you’re just joining us, these posts are my take on the In My Mailbox meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren.  It’s just a look at the books and book-related materials that come into my possession every week.

I’ve been wondering if I’ll have to change the day when I do these posts because I’ll have class on Wednesdays when school starts up.  Hmm.. but I so enjoy these.  They get me through hump day.  We’ll see what happens.  :)

All right, here are the books I acquired in the past week!

Begged:

Books I bought on sale!

In the Arms of Stone Angels by Jordan Dane

Personal Demons by Lisa Desrochers
Since I like angels, I had to add this to my collection!

Original Sin by Lisa Desrochers
This too!

Lament by Maggie Stiefvater

Chime by Franny Billingsley
The premise hits my awesome button, and the cover is beautiful too.

Even though I get creeped out by the idea of drowning,
I am really loving this book.
