I can't quite pick out whether this week was a good one or a bad one... I think it's a good one because I've got amazing books this week and I'm so happy about that.. but on the other hand, I broke my 3 sole rules about my book-splurging:

1. I will only buy one book each week. - I bought two (2)
2. I will only buy paperback books. - both are hardcovers
3. I will not spend more than Php500.00 on a book - I went over budget with each

Ugh! I hate my rules! 

Okay, I'm babbling so yeah, IMM time:

First day of the week: So I got Forgotten by Cat Patrick at a nearby bookstore. I already have the ebook but I'm more of the "real deal" kind of reader so I just had to have this.

Forgotten by Cat Patrick
(Already Read and Reviewed)
Then came wednesday: I was all happy with one book [and with the fact that I was over my budget by Php200.00] on my book splurge but then, this came in the mail; which I ordered from the Book Depository. Yay!

The Snow Queen by Merecedes Lackey
(Already Read)
Oh! but Saturday's here and there's a SALE: I just couldn't resist! Must buy a book! And I found this amazingly sitting all by its lonesome self that I just grabbed it before anyone else did. Mine! [Again over budget by Php100.00]


Legend by Marie Lu
(Currently Reading)
*Sigh* I am such a weakling... 
So what did you guys get this week?
