In My Shopping Bag (76)

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....



The Journals of Myrth, Book 1:  How to Slay a Dragon by Bill Allen
(Review edition courtesy of Belle Books)
As soon as this one arrived, I had to delve in....and have already finished it.  Hehe.  Allow me to say that it is a grand adventure with a lot of word play that will have you in stitches....the good kind that is.

Dark Eden by Patrick Carman
(ARC courtesy of Sandee at HarperCollins)
If the cover doesn't look creepy enough and the title doesn't grab you, you should at the very least recognize the author's name.  It's the writer behind the Skeleton Creek of course this adventure is going to have that interactive aspect (as in online connects...and apparantly apps according to the material) he's known for.  Scheduled release looks like November 1st...can't wait to see what this adventure holds.


from my good friend Nayuleska

Wither by J.G. Passarella
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
The Twilight Saga:  The Official Illustrated Guide by Stepenie Meyers
The first came as a suggested read from my good bloggy friend Petty Witter....the second, well we've ALL heard the great things about this one, can't wait....the third, well...I HAD to get this one.  ^_^

Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos by R.L. Lafevers
I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore
The first is book one of a series and as I love her Nathaniel Fludd books, I thought I'd give this one a try; looks promising.  The second, I just saw the movie this weekend so its arrival is pretty well timed.

The Grim Legacy by Polly Shulman
Selected this one based off a suggested read post from Bri over at BriMeetsBooks.  I must say, it DOES sound good.




Say Hello to Zorro! by Carter Goodrich
(Won via contest from Shelf-Awareness' Author Buzz and Simon & Schuster)
A SIGNED copy from the author and characters!  How cool is that?  Pretty cool if I do say so myself.  Very excited to read this adorable...I mean "intimidating" looking book (with the two adorable cuties on the front!). ^_^


That's it for this week (well, and last...had to tend to the earth Week goodness last time around so we skipped this post).

What did you get?
Do tell!

Until next time...happy reading!

O French Kiss. Enjoy! I've heard nothing but great things about that book.

What a lovely load of books! I loved Patrick Carman's Atherton books!! And Theodosia...sigh...I love looking at those books on display at my library. Still haven't read them though. :)

Hope all is well with you!

Oh and what a sweet cover for Juniper Berry. :)

Misha said...

That's an epic shopping bag! :D
I have Anna and the French Kiss - I've heard great things about it!
I like the cover for How to Slay a Dragon.

Gina said...

Juju: Me too. Can't wait!

Michelle: I know what you mean. So many books so little time...but we cram them in wherever the schedule permits. ^_^ (thanks for the well wishes....taking one day at a time) ...and yes, Juniper Berry cover ROCKS!

Misha: Thanks! You've heard the rumblings about French Kiss too, huh? ^_^ The Dragon book is really good beyond the cover too. Review to come soon.

French Kiss - you will love. And then you will be just as eagerly awaiting Lola (the next one) as I am ;o)

Grimm Legacy is a lot of fun. Not entirely what I expected, but fun all the same. I'd so totally love a "library" like that!
