In My Shopping Bag (40)

Morning everyone!
A few posts ahead for the day including the winners of the two contests that ended over the weekend, and a book review, but first.....

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 this past week....

For Review
Matched by Ally Condie
(courtesy of Dutton Books/Penguin Group)
Recognize this one?  Probably not from the cover at least...picture a girl in a green dress trapped in a bubble of sorts...ring a bell now?  Thought so.  Cover change or not, I couldn't resist looking inside this one...and quickly read the first two chapters.  So far, so good!  Release date is listed as 11/30/10 currently.
Fabulous BEA swag-type pack including...
Alphas T-shirt
Alphas nail files
Alphas by Lisi Harrison (ARC)
Ask Amy Green:  Boy Trouble by Sarah Webb
Access Denied (and other eighth grade error messages) by Denise Vega
(3) swag-tastic bookmarks
Midpoint Trade Books tote
(via contest from Rebecca at Sonshine Thoughts
Really....what is there to say about a prize pack like this except...YAY!  ^_^
It's not a book, I know, but it was such a nice gesture I had to share....a 'thank you' card from Sarah McGinnis formerly of Tilbury House, now of Frenzy Marketing.
(Thank you!)
Once Dead, Twice Shy by Kim Harrison
(from Nayuleska at Nayu's Reading Corner)
I've been meang to read this one for quite some time now...definitely slipping it into the TBR stack.  ^_^

Duplicity Dogged the Dachshund by Blaize Clement

Until next time....happy reading!

Nice, nice! I haven't read any of those books yet, but I've really been wanting to get my hands on Matched. I didn't recognize it at first with that cover! Enjoy your books.

Nice collection of books! Matched is one of the few books I regret not picking up at BEA when I had the chance, but was soooo tired when I saw it and just wanted to get home. Now I have to wait until it's released. :(

Looking forward to your reviews! Happy reading!

Emidy: Yes, the "new"cover was unexpected, but the story is SO good...

Juju: hehe...doen't happen that often. ^_^

Alexia561: GASP! You didn't pick up MATCHED? *whacks you (gently) witha book* Silly girl...but I suppose your cart load of BEA bookish goodies will have to due til then. ^_^

Julie P: Thanks! ^_^
