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...

QUICK NOTE...Update: 9/7/19

First of all, my heart goes out to all those affected by the recent heinous weather outbreaks, most recently being Hurricane Dorian. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and we're still trying to get back in our home. Things are very slow to progress towards normalcy...and every day presents a new headache/nightmare to deal with. Hopefully by month's end, we'll be back in there to start the next leg of recovery. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.

In My Shopping Bag

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)
Normally seen on a Sunday or Monday, this week's was pushed back due to the fabulous blog guests we had visiting (don't believe me....just check the posts!)...but better late than never.
Got your wish lists ready?
Here's a peek inside my shopping bag from the past two weeks...
The Catastrophic History of You & Me by Jess Rothenberg
(ARC courtesy of LibraryThing Early Reviewers)
Interesting cover, right?  The story sounds like it may have strands of a few other YA books of late with the main characters passing away and all...but the rest?  Sounds unique to me.  For more information on this one, seek out Dial Books.  Scheduled release, January 2012.

The Orphan of Awkward Falls by Keith Graves
(Review copy courtesy of LibraryThing Early Reviewers)
This was a surprise when it landed on my doorstep as it was a title I had "won" with LibraryThing back in August...and forgotten about.  Ooops.  Cie la vie....was doubly excited when it arrived though because really, how can you NOT think that cover (and title) are curious?!  For more information on this title, seek out the folks at Chronicle Books.  Scheduled release, November 2011.


Picked Up
These are those titles I rescued from the bins for wayward books.  They are currently enjoying an extended stay at le hotel TBR Mountain....^-^ 

Beezus and Ramona by Beverly Clearly
Angels & Demons by Dan Brown

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
This ARC actually didn't have the prying eyes of others around when it arrived, hence forth...I got first dibs! *fist pump*


That's all for this week...and last.
Slower, yes...but hey, it's the not's the quality.
So, what did YOU get?
Do tell!

Until next time....happy reading!
