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...
So, QUICK is pretty much shut down at the moment. 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. So, reading and blogging (as much as I adore it) have to take a back burner. My apologies to any tours or promised review dates...hopefully I'll be able to "reopen" one day, but it's just not in sight as of yet. Here's hoping your reading adventures continue on with no issues! Until we meet again, stay safe, check in from time to time, and happy reading!

In My Mailbox (81)

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....


Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
(courtesy of Eric at Quirk Books)
I'll tell you what, this IS one PECULIAR book indeed!  I love the writing style used, you really get into the mind of our young guide and the story keeps you guessing.  Did I mention the photographs included in the book?  Think more along the lines of an adultish version of "The Jolly Postman" me, loads of "fun" and I'm only halfway through!

Stay by Allie Larkin

This was an unexpected arrival on my door but...awww, look how cute the little guy is?!?!  Can't wait to see what this charming story will hold.  Scheduled paperback release is set for July 26th, 2011.

The Gift of Illusion by Richard Brown
(courtesy of the author)
A paranormal thriller...hmmm....from the site description, sounds good...potentially creepy, but good.  Review to come this August.  Stay tuned for more and in the mean time, feel free to check out the author's site.



It's Not Easy Being Green by Jim Henson

The Books of Renfield by Tim Lucas
Deck the Halls and The Christmas Thief by Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark


That's it for this week.

What did you get?
Do tell!

Until next time...happy reading!

I have been dying to read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children !! All reviews I've read for the book say that it's weird but wonderful. I will be looking forward to your review.

Nice shopping bag! I'm curious about the Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children book. Think the old pictures would be awesome, but still not sure about the story. Will keep an eye out for your review. Enjoy!

Sweet stack.

Odd fact: I've been craving Christmas books for some reason.
