Are you an avid reader looking for your next "fix"? Can't bear to be without some form of reading material in your spare time? Welcome to my world! Whether you are seeking a new book to "feed your need", or you are an author seeking an unbiased point of view on your own recent masterpiece, this is the place to be. With life as with books, you never know where the next step might take you...

QUICK NOTE...Update: 10/10/19

Good news: We're back home! Bad news: It's like Apocalypse Heck Part III.

The one year Hurricane Michael anniversary is already here. Where did the time go...and yet it feels like forever. You don't realize how much you take for granted until it's all gone. I'm grateful my family/fur babies survived, and I know they are just "things", but sadly, in this life, those "things" help us get through every day. So yes, "happy" yet not. Every day is still a struggle...not just for my family, but so many others.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.

In My Shopping Bag (16)

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....


Well, after last weeks haul....had to take a break on the pocketbook this time....



Wish by Alexandra Bullen
(via contest held by Sarah @ GreenBeanTeenQueen and Scholastic)
(The book came in a purple shimmery bag with silver star magic-like confetti inside!)

iCarly:  iHave a Web Show! by Ms. Laurie McElroy
(via drawing from Scholastic for survey feedback)
(Well, it was a random prize...don't be surprised if I "contest" this one out though...)

Hey, I just saw "The Roving Reader" on Juju's blog. I think it is a great idea! I will try it sometime, I will have to keep a look out for good covers while at the bookstore.

Perchance to dream looks so good!! Thanks so much for visiting my blog! Your blog is great!!

Bri Meets Books said...

Lovely books you received. What, you don't want ICARLY?! That's so cute you received that as a survey prize. Donate it to the library!

What's the Alice book? I want to read that!

GMR said...

inthehammockblog: It does, doesn't it? Can't wait to read it. Thanks for the kind words regarding my site...I'll be stopping back through yours from time to time as well! =0)

Bri Meets Books: GASP! Is it true? Bri is back on the blogosphere! (LOL) iCarly is cute, but alas, I probably won't be keeping it. The Alice book is Stickfigurtively Speaking...a stick figure illustrated version of Alice in Wonderland. It looks really cute....will be reading next.
