In My Shopping Bag (79)

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....

Review
 
All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin
(1) bag of Balanchine chocolate covered espresso beans
(ARC + treat courtesy of Ksenia at Macmillan Children's Publishing)
A world where chocolate and caffeine are both outlawed?  O_O -faints-
This came highly recommended from a trusted contact at this publishing help that has yet to steer me wrong....so my hopes are fairly high.  Scheduled release from Farrar Straus Giroux set for September 27th at this time.




My Life Undecided by Jessica Brody
(ARC courtesy of Ksenia at MacMillan Children's Publishing)
I've been seeing this one around the blogosphere so of course the moment I had the opportunity to read it, I snagged it.  Can't wait....curious to see how letting others direct her life choices works out....not that I'd actually try it or anything. ~whistles~ Scheduled release date is June 6th.

Received

Evernight
Stargazer

...AND...
 
 
Viola in Reel Life by Adrina Trigiani
Eclipse (collector's edition) by Stephanie Meyers

All thanks to my good bloggy friend Nayuleska.
(Be sure to check out her site, Nayu's Reading Corner!  It's definitely worth the click... ^_^)

Do tell!


Until next time...happy reading!

I couldn't survive a world where chocolate and caffeine are both outlawed!!
You've got some wonderful books! I am really curious about All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin.

Juju: That's not even the final one either...but yes, I like it too.

Misha: LOL. It's doubtful many of us could! That one comes highly recommended to so we'll see.... ^_^
