In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.
Let's take a peek inside my shopping bag this week....
The Trouble with Chickens: A J.J. Tully Mystery by Doreen Cronin
Now just try and tell me that the cover isn't cute....really, try! As cute as the jacket is (and by the way, the actual hardcover has an adorable silver print of one of the chickens in the lower right corner...to cute), the story is bookishly wonderful. How so? Aw, you'll have to wait for the review but seeing as how I read this one over the weekend, your wait won't be TOO long.
The Worst Case Scenario, Ultimate Adventure: Everest by David Borgenicht with David Morton

This was an exciting find to discover in the mail this week...and one I quickly devoured. Yep. Finished! Hey, what can I say? I LOVED those "choose your own adventure" books as a child. This one puts a new twist on things that makes them even more fun. Review to come soon...
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Cat Valente
(ARC courtesy of Ksenia at Feiwel and Friends)
Try saying that title five times fast! It's a doozy but oh doesn't it sound like fun?! Can't wait to dig into this magical adventure. Release date is set for May 2011. In the mean time, be sure to check out their site to find out more...and stay tuned right here for some bookish fun related to this title in the coming weeks!
Until Tuesday by Luis Carlos Montalvan
It's been a while since I read a pet centered book. When I say this liitle beauty peeking out from one of my recent email newsletters from Shelf Awareness, I knew it was time to circle back to that genre again. This looks like a moving tale about more than man or "beast", but about how they help each other in more ways than anticipated. Release date is set for May 2011.
(1) Minion pendant
(1) Stay Puft Marshmallow Man figure
Okay, so my camera kinda craptastically caught these little guys profiles, but trust me, they are TOO CUTE! Just gotta find the right cord to hang my minion on (hehe) and marshmallow dude is not displayed on my desk with my other little miniatures. Needless to say a great big THANKS to both Marcie at the hosting site and "Sweet Geek" for the awesome prizes. Should you be looking for bookish fun or a new crafty addition to your collection, DEFINTELY check out their sites.
