I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the wonderful books everyone gets. You will discover lots of great blogs and lots of books that you won't be able to live without.

This week I added three books to my massive TBR stack. Two of them were books for review and the other was a sequel to a book I reviewed earlier.
The Fate of the Muse by Derrolyn Anderson is the third in the author's self-published series - Marina's Tales. It is a paranormal romance featuring mermaids. She emailed me and asked if I would like to read the third book. I did enjoy the first two and wanted to know what came next for Marina. I got this book at Smashwords.

Dark Passage is the sequel to Dark Mirror and continues the adventures of this magic-using, time-traveling Regency teens. I liked the first story and needed to know what came next.

Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs has intrigued me since I first heard about it. When I had a chance to get it through Amazon Vine, I couldn't resist. I like the mixing of the contemporary with characters out of Greek myth. And I also love the cover. 

Those were my additions this week. What did you get?
