In My Shopping Bag (74)

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 this week....



Trauma Queen by Barbara Dee
(review copy courtesy of author)
This charming book simply looks show stopping at first glance, but the excerpt I read online at the author's website promises so much more.  Can't wait to get the show started with this one.  Mark your calendars as the release date is scheduled for April 19th!

The Wild Soccer Bunch:  Diego the Tornado by Joachim Masannek
(review copy courtesy of The Wild Soccer Bunch team)
Book 2 in a rather lengthy series over seas (seriously, there are already 14 books in the series...with this one just making it stateside!), it's about a soccer team of children from many walks of life and the what they learn/how they grow from the experience.  Sounds like a great series for boys and girls alike if you ask me.  This book is scheduled for release in the US on April 15th with the third book to release in October.  Set to review here in the coming months...stay tuned!



A Touch of Frost, A Mythos Academy Novel by Jennifer Estep
(from local bookstore ARCs)
What can I say?  This one recently arrived in my local bookstore and hadn't been scooped up yet so um, yeah...I totally scooped it up.  (Yay me!  Hey, it doesn't happen that often!)  From what I read about this one, should be GOOD.  Regarding a release date, I'm encountering conflicting information.  The earliest would be July, the latest August from Kensington Publishing.



Awesome-tastic Jonathan Adler sticky note pack.  Just take a look at the flags included!  Perfect, right?  ^_^

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Volume 1
The Fallen: Volume 1 

Cindy Ella by Robin Palmer
Hex Education by Emily Gould
Girl of the Moment by Lizabeth Zindel

Paisley Hanover Acts Out by Cameron Tuttle
A Non-Blonde Cheerleader in Love by Kierann Scott
How to Take the Ex Out of Ex-Boyfriend by Janette Rallison further explanation needed on this one.


That's it for this week.
 So what do you think?
What did YOU get?
Do tell!

Until next time....happy reading!

Misha said...

I want to steal the Glee music CD!
Cindy Ella by Robin Palmer looks like so much fun. I love your shopping bag!

Arya said...

My goodness at all the stuff! Haha It looks great! :) I love the cover of Girl of the Moment.


GMR said...

Misha: *hides CD* ^_^ Yeah, I noticed a split theme in my shopping this week.

Arya:'s toted as "the teen version of Devil Wears Prada". Curious...

Sheila (Bookjourney) said...

Trauma Queen looks fun - enjoy the books :)

GMR said...

Sheila: Thanks! I'll certainly try. ^_^

Tribute Books said...

Love the shattered mug of the ex-boyfriend's face - that's priceless.

And, of course, Glee - no explanation required :)

April said...

Tons of great looking books!! Loving the covers. Can't wait to hear your thoughts! Can I tell you a secret without you thinking I am the worst person ever?! *psst* come closer... I have NEVER seen a single episode of Glee! Are you disowning me as a bookish friend now?!?!?!

GMR said...

Tribute Books: Yep, one of the things that caught my eye about this one. Yay GLEE! ^_^

April: -leans in- *GASP* You''ve never...seen...GLEE? _faints_ (No, I won't disown ya....but I prescribed a marathon watch STAT!)

The1stdaughter said...

Wow! You had quite a week! Look at all those books! And I love anything by Jonathan Alder, though most of his furnishings are too expensive, I'm pretty sure I could afford the sticky notes. hehe

Yay for Trauma Queen! I love love loved it! I'm sure you will too. I'd venture to say I liked it even better than This Is Me From Now On. She's such a fantastic writer for that age group. :o)

GMR said...

the1stdaughter: Yeah, we had a whole little section in the store and a few things just happened to end up on a REALLY good sale...hence the stickies! ^_^ About to start Trauma Queen very soon....can't wait to see what's in store.
