This meme is hosted by Marcia @ The Printed Page. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do).

I've decided to do this meme only once a month. I did post once in the second week of January, which can be found here. In addition, I received the below books this month:




  1. Going with Gabriel by John Grisham (Goodreads FirstReads program)
  2. The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry (Giveaway @ A Bookish Way of Life)
  3. Jumping off Swings by Jo Knowles (Giveaway @ A Bookish Way of Life)
See what others have bought over the last week!
