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 (61)

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....


For Review

The Secret Life of Emily Dickinson by Jerome Charyn
(courtesy of Nicole at Tribute Books)
This one will be swinging through on a book tour this February...but having already read the first chapter excerpt, looking forward to it. 

Textual Healing by Eric Smith
(courtesy of the author)
First work of fiction from this blogger turned author (among other things) sets us with a male lead character in the midst of quite a few changes in his life.  Snuck a peek inside the cover upon its arrival...should be interesting to see how he takes one day at a time.  Anticipating at least a few laughs as well as several moments of curiosity...



If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Home by Julie Andrews
TY fuzzy little hamster guy names Goodies
So we're looking at two YA additions, a biography that sounds smashing, and a fun little fluffy to pop up in unusual places. was a good shopping week.  ^_^

Araminta Spookie, Book 1:  My Haunted House by Angie Sage
Found the second and third in this series last that book one is in the house, it's time to look into scheduling a read. 

GLEE:  The Christmas Album
GLEE:  Love Songs
Ah yes...have I mentioned that I LOVE the show GLEE?
Well, just in case I haven't....I do and the music is ADDICTIVE!

GLEE CD Board Game
*ahem*  See statement above for utter Glee love....  ^_^


That's it for this week.
What goodies arrived at your door?

I spy Emily's nickers! Funny cover :)

....Petty Witter said...

Textual Healing - What a great title.

My Haunted House reminds me of the artwork used on Coraline, don't you think so?

GMR said...

Juju: Yes...too funny. Wonder where they came up with the idea? *ponders*

Petty Witter: That one seems to have caught several people's attention. Great call on the cover art're right, it does share a resemblance!

Cleverly Inked said...

I do love the last cover, cute and familiar?

Tribute Books said...

Gina - can't wait for your review of Emily - I know you'll enjoy it.

The book's Facebook page also posted a link to your "In My Shopping Bag" post at:!/SecretLifeOfEmilyDickinson

So glad you got some Glee - always a good thing! :)

Best wishes,

Love the cover of If I Stay, I've been questioning whether to buy a copy myself for that reason.

Also, Glee...can't say I'm surprised. LOL Actually that Christmas album is one I got for my in-laws in fact.
