In My Shopping Bag (44)

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....

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

Review
Divine Appointments by Charlene Ann Baumbich
(courtesy of the author herself)
Will be reading the first installment in the "Snowglobe Connections" series, Stray Affections, and this one for a special post this September as this book makes its debut September 21st!



Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
(courtesy of Harper Teen)
SQUEEEEE! *ahem* Is there anyone that wouldn't have been excited to see this one show up?  I think not!  Seriously, was thrilled when I saw this on my doorstep.  I want to tear into it right away but at the same time, it would make a ROCKIN' addition to my October posts....will have to consider, but either way...YAY!



Original Sins by Peg Kingman

Crusade by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie
(courtesy of Simon & Schuster)
Look familar?  Nope...it's not just a random case of deja vu....you DID in fact see this book on a recent 'shopping bag' post, BUT that was a ARC from the fabulous author.  THIS is a finished copy from the publisher!  (YAY!)  Oh how I love bookish surprises....



Kiss Me Deadly
(courtesy of Nicole at Running Press Book Publishers)
So I know I didn't list the author here and that's mainly because there are SEVERAL!  It's a collection of short stories and I must admit I read the first one the night it arrived....yay, loved it!  Can't wait to delve into the rest of it.  This will be one of the books featured during my "special" October posts.

The Radleys by Matt Haig
(via Twitter contest from Books-A-Million)
This was a fun surprise.....sounds sort of like a 'Leave it to Beaver' episode...but with vampires.  Should be interesting!


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

That's all for this week!
What did YOU get?
Do tell!


Until next time....happy reading!
