In My Shopping Bag (8)


In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.
Through her guidelines, your post does not actually have to be named the same and thus my post shall be..."In My Shopping Bag".  (just fits with the "foodie" theme a bit better in my humble opinion)
Let's take a peek inside my shopping bag from the past week....

What a fabulous week for books! Those new Merlin books look good. Definitely going to see if my bookstore has those!!

I love the cover for Truly Madly, I'm off to chapters.ca to check it out now :)

Bella said...

Gina, you're bad for my tbr! I've added truly, madly to my "must-buy-in-2010"!

What fun! I agree with Bella, I love the cover of Truly Madly and I'm really interested to see how those Merlin books go. I really liked the TV series for Merlin, although it was a little cheesy at times.

Fun stuff and if I don't comment again until after the holidays. Have a fabulous christmas!

Bella: LOL. Glad to "help" you out there. =0) The cover is really great...and Merlin, well, the show was so much fun, I saw this episode, but we all know that the book is more often than not even better. =0)

The1stdaughter: Touche...it could get cheesey, but overall, gotta say I liked them. Thanks for the holiday wishes and Merry Christmas to you and your family as well!

Sadly I haven't seen the tv show of Merlin yet. I missed the first few episodes and so I decided to wait for the dvd, so fingers crossed I get to see it soon. It looks awesome.

I've read a couple of Doctor Who books by Mike Tucker which were great, so if that is anything to go by your Merlin book will be fabulous! Happy Reading :D

Great mailbox! We'll have to compare notes for Truly, Madly and I Used To Know That, as I have both of those in my TBR pile.

And the Christmas Classics DVD set looks awesome! Ryan will be so jealous! *L*

Enjoy!

GMR said...

Alexia561: Absolutely! Would love to see what you think and compare notes... =0)
LOL on the DVD set...I love these old classic Christmas specials and it came just in time for Christmas! Now, I have to find time to watch them....
