In My Shopping Bag (14)

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)  Although this post normally appears on Monday, that spot is reserved for a special review on a title releasing this Tuesday!  (Curious?  You'll have to wait and see....)
Let's take a peek inside my shopping bag from the past week....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Purchased

I'm actually stopping in at the bookstore tomorrow for a small stack of books, so unfortunately the titles will not be unveiled til then.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Won


Dracula the Un-Dead by Dacre Stoker and Ian Holt
(via contest held at Bookin' With Bingo)
(I won this a while back, but had not received it.  I just chalked it up to being lost in the mail.  Through the course of commenting on her site, she recontacted the publisher and made sure the copy was sent out!  Just wanted to say THANKS to 'BINGO' for all their help in seeing this through!)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Won/Review
(It was a contest but for an ARC to review, hence the combo category.)
Keeping the Feast by Paula Butturini
(via Shelf-Awareness newsletter entry and Penguin Group USA)

How nice that Bingo followed up with the publisher to make sure you got your copy! Haven't read any of these, so will keep an eye out for your reviews.

Happy reading!

Oooo....a Dracula book! I definitely am interested in hearing what you think of that one! And I'd never heard of the Keepers of the School, but it looks interesting.

Some great reviews are coming...I can just see it!

Alexia561: I know, right? She really is terrific!

The1stdaughter: Yes, I can't wait to get into it, but it might have to for a short time with previous obligations...reat assured once read the review will be up! =0)
