Mailbox and Shopping

OMG... My Mail-Lady Loves me.... This is what I got in the mail today!!! I won this over at HelenKay Dimon and it finally arrived!!! I am sooooo excited. I thought about making myself a promise that, since I received this package, I would not buy any more books in the month of July... however I am sad to say that with everyone else's mail bag and reviews.... I am dying to get some new books... I will try my hardest!!!

Then I went to Borders the other day... We had an orthodontist appointment... so I HHAADD to go to Baton Rouge anyway... and since I was there... Borders was there too.... and I had some 30% off coupons... I had to go... just to see what they had.... And this is what I walked away with... Yes, I know... very bad!! (I slapped my hand too)
But again... I did get some of these books for $4.00!!!! Like this one...
and this one...
Then, the saleguys helping me, was of no help, because he kept recommending books to me... like this one. I know I seen this one on someones site.... (yea, getting older is a b*tch) and they really liked it and I bought it... I was kicking myself in the a$$ because I bought it in hardback... but the book was already 30% off, plus I got to use my 30% off coupon on it... So, I was okay.

Then, thanks to Amy C @ Romance Book Wyrm... I had to go get my own copy of this book!! If you have not joined her "book tour" of this book... you need to go to her place and sign up for this one... or better yet... go get your copy of this book!! I promise with my whole heart that you will love this book!!!!

Then, I got these two books with some more 30% off coupons...
Then, I had to go to Wal-Mart for grocery shopping... I saw these two... and thought what the heck...
Now this one seems very funny, because I read the first couple of pages to see if it was interesting and from what I gather it is written from a vampire guys point of view, which I thought that was odd.... and funny at the same time. So I picked this one up!! And as for this one... well, I simply loved the name of the book... Because I would like to think we are Alpha Females!!! So, we shall see!
I hope you all have a wonderful day and great tomorrow!!!


  1. Holy cow! You got some books!

  2. WOW! That box is full of neat surprises. I wish borders gave out 40% off coupons more often.

    Have a great weekend!

  3. OMG Cecile, that is shopping but still economically because 4 dollars for some books isn't a bad price. And to win such prizes, hello, drooling over here! Enjoy each and every one!

  4. Cecile,

    Very nice haul Cecile. :) Happy Reading girl.


  5. Nice book haul Cecile! I am looking forward to your reviews on each of them.


  6. Amy ~ Yea, that is what I thought too... Holy cow... see why my debit card runs away from me now!!!

    IHBG ~ That box did surprise me today. I surely was not expecting that!!! It was a very nice surprise!! Yea, I know what you mean. It is nice to get 30%, but oh how nice when it is 40%!!

  7. Leontine ~ Hey Honey! That is what I said for the one's I paid $4.00 for. That was a very good deal!

    Michelle G ~ Thank hon! I am sure I will get to these books within the next year... the way my pile of TBR keeps growing!

    Ms. Moonlight ~ Thanks! I look forward to my own thoughts too... because of the Mt. Everest I have as a TBR pile... Sometimes, I swear I feel an earthquake!!

    Chris ~ That is what I had to say too, when I saw $4.00!!!

    Hope you all have a great day!

  8. I always love to see what you get!! I just got Bitten...going to read it when I go to the beach.

  9. Nice Haul! I reviewed The Physick Book of Delieverance Dane a week or so ago. I loved it. If you enjoy Historical Fictions you should like this one. :)

  10. Mandi ~ The same goes for me... I love to see what you are getting and what you are buying... that is why my debit card runs from me and hides... lol!!
    Oh the beach, I am sooo jealous!!
    I have taken vacation this week and done absolutely nothing to brag about!!! But it has been sooooo freaking HOT!!!

  11. You hit the jackpot!!! :)

    Enjoy your reads and your weekend!

  12. Score!!

    You did amazing Miss Cecile! Kudos there.

    That "Bond of Darkness", looks most appealing and there are a couple of others I've got my eye on too!

    You enjoy and have an awesome weekend. ;)


  13. Missy ~ I never thought about it that way... But I did hit the jackpot!! Any time I can walk away from a bookstore... whether it be borders, walmart, or a thrift store... I feel like a winner!!!
    I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow and a wonderful weekend!1

  14. Lea ~ Bond of Darkness, that is one of the reasons I got it, the cover was fantastic! But I was very pleased for $4.00!!
    I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow!!

  15. That is a lot of books! Lucky girl, and some great boys...Bitten :D I so hope you will love that book.

  16. All I have to say is that my face turned green :)
