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)
Let's take a peek inside my shopping bag this week....

Review
 

Little Miss Bronte, Jane Eyre:  A Counting Primer
Little Master Carroll, Alice in Wonderland:  A Colors Primer
by Jennifer Adams, art by Alison Oliver
(courtesy of the author and Eric at Quirk Books)
Both titles are a part of the BABYLIT series...one that I've seen in our local store and always been captivated by not only the titles/authors featured but the artwork!  When the opportunity to share these with all of you came up, I could hardly say no.  Published by Gibbs Smith, these as well as the rest of the series are available now on a bookstore shelf near you.







Rosie Flo's Coloring Fashion Show
(courtesy of Lara at Chronicle Books)
Doesn't look like much now but just you wait until I get all the fashions colored....THEN you'll see a fashion show!  Stay tuned as this season's hottest 2D fashions take a 3D turn...and you just might score a chance to win a set all your own!







The Song Remains the Same by Allison Winn Scotch (ARC)
(via Shelf-Awareness newsletter)
Release Date:  April 12, 2012 from Putnam, an imprint of Penguin Book Group
A plane crash...memories lost but not forgotten...the journey back to the truth and what really matters.  Sounds intriguing, no?






Temp:  An Accidental Fairytale by A.E. Mayer
(courtesy of Adam at Cricket Ink)
Magical creatures on Earth....a temp staffing agency whose initials are too funny...and a lead character with secrets of her own.  As the closing line for the blurb says..."Fizzing with wit and adventure, Temp is a tale for anyone who has ever fantasized about a more magical life."  Yep...sounds good to me.  With my reading schedule though, this one will be on hold for a bit....but that doesn't mean YOU can't check things out first (hence the included link!).  ^_^

Received


From my blogging buddy, friend, and future author-to-be Nayuleska.
A little pick-me-up that certainly helps pick me up throughout the crazy times right now....how could they not?  Oh-so-cute keychain and a little bookish girl statue that you can put a wish or special thought in the secret compartment.  (THANKS!  *hugs*)



-------------------------------------------------


Bought


The Twilight Saga, Eclipse:  The Official Illustrated Movie Companion byb Mark Cotta Vaz
A totally unexpected purchase....it was just sitting there on a sale shelf and well, I couldn't pass it by.  ^-^

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



Until next time....happy reading!
