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: 6/25/19

Still working through things. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and while the family is safe (pups, and parents), the house didn't fair as well. You'd think we'd be back in our home by now, since the disaster occurred October 2018, but nope. Things are very slow to progress towards normalcy...and every day presents a new headache/nightmare to deal with. 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 (49)

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 see what's in the bag this week....



The Trust (A Secret Society Novel) by Tom Dolby
(ARC courtesy Melissa at HarperCollins)
Squee! *ahem* I was very happy to receive this one in the mail as I really enjoyed the first book (Secret review in case you're curious) in this series.  It doesn't release until February 2011 at this point, but needless to say I won't be waiting til then to read this one...

The Story of Little Red Riding Hood by The Brothers Grimm, Illustrated by Christopher Bing
(courtesy of Laura at Chronicle Books)
This is a wonderful rendition of the classic story known the world over.  I read it as soon as it arrived (hehe) so a review will be forth coming soon....

Othe Goose:  Re-Nurseried and Re-Rhymed Childrens Classics by J.otto Seibold
(courtesy of Laura at Chronicle Books)
Certainly not your classic nursery rhymes as you might remember them, but SO MUCH FUN!  Again, I read it the night it came in...readaholic is my middle name after all (or so I claim).



The Edgar Dickens Trilogy, Book 2:  Dreadful Acts by Philip Ardagh
Now my only problem is finding the first one and the third one!  This little beauty was picked up at a local book clearance sale.  There it was sitting all by its lonesone...til one Insatiable Reader (moi) spotted it.  It sounds like a lot of fun and even says in the intro it can be read on it's own. 


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

Until next time....happy reading!
