Overall it was a good week for my mailbox, although the highlight was not what was added to my collection but instead what I gave away. I had the opportunity to meet up with fellow blogger Ambur when she visited my city and we went for supper last night. I'm moving in the coming year and won't be able to take all my books with me and so she took a stack of at least fifty off my hands, including some for guest reviews you'll likely to be seeing on my blog in the future. Thanks so much Ambur and it was great meeting you!

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (Random House Canada)
You Against Me by Jenny Downham (Random House Canada)
Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs (ARC)
Triangles by Ellen Hopkins (ARC)
I figured it was okay to accept a few of Ambur's books since I got rid of so many... and I just couldn't resist these three all of which I am incredibly looking forward to. Thanks so much Ambur!
I actually ordered these a few weeks ago from BookCloseOuts.ca but I had them shipped to Montreal because a) it was cheaper b) I'm not optimistic enough to believe I'll actually read them anytime soon. That said, I am looking forward to all of them!
