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....
....and from the past few weeks.  Yup, haven't had a chance to do this post for a bit so BE PREPARED FOR BOOKISH GOODNESS AHEAD!  ^_^

What a fantastic week for you and I am looking forward to your thoughts on them. Bad Girls don't die looks creepy and The Spender cover is so pretty. I am going to check out synopsis of Game of Secrets. You can read my news on The Sunday Post

Awesome book haul this week! Loved The Future of Us, so hope you like it too. And I've got Ashes on my wishlist, so will keep an eye out for your review. Ilsa Bick is supposed to be good, but haven't read her yet.

Pippy is so cute! Hi Pippy! :D

Juju at Tales of Whimsy.com said...

Great stack. Lots of good stuff.

And hello sweet cute Pippy!

GMR said...

Kimba88: Thanks! Ooh..off to check out your post! *click*

Alexia561: I lived Mackler's work TANGLED but I've never read the other author's writing before. Curious to see how it goes. (Yes...Pippy is cute, she knows it...but she doesn't flaunt it. ^_^)

Juju: Agreed! You can't see, but Pippy is waving back. ^_^

*Waves to cute little Pippy.*

Lots of great looking books! Love Fever and the Percy Jackson series. The I Couldn't Love You More cover makes me want to go to the beach and build a sandcastle.:D

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

That is one full week of books! :D Hope you enjoy them all as you read them. :) Hope you have an amazing week this week as well.

GMR said...

Melanie: Same here! Great summer cover.... ^_^

Melissa; Ah well, like I said...not just ONE week overall. ^_^ Here's wishing you the same!
