  5. Eep, all the awesomeness! You got some fabulous books, Margie. I'm so excited to see your thoughts about Just One Day, since the hype for that has been like OVER THE TOP. Honestly, it's craziness, but still. I want to see if you enjoy it as much as everyone else seems to be. =) Also, so much e-book love this week for you! I see you decided to splurge on all the novellas. Very good choice! I have to buy some of them myself. Also, I have Angelfall on my Kindle, and I can't wait to read it, especially after seeing such great things!

    Fabulous haul, Margie. Enjoy all your lovelies. <3
