HUGE haul from Goodwill!
Everything in there store was 50% off including the books.  There was over 4 huge bins of boxes! I dug through every single one of them!  A bunch of these I already own, but I got them for prizes, donations for my local library, and for our local woman's shelter for donation.  I only spent $6.25 total for all of these!

My Husband bought these for me at the store. He thought they looked like things I would read! He knows me so well! I have been wanting to buy these and he saved me a trip! Thank you hubby!!

What did everyone else get?

I love the Morganville Vampires, I'm really looking forward to Ghost Town. I think The Secret Society of the Pink Crystal Ball and Star Crossed look pretty good too.
