In My Mailbox (2)


In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.


My mailbox is pretty puny this week after last week's book buying bonanza. My husband banned me from the bookstores for a week or two, and I didn't make it to the library. (I had to help with my cousin's baby shower.) Soooo... I had no choice but to dig around in my ever growing TBR boxes to find something to read. Which, really, isn't a bad idea since I'm up to 3 boxes now! I might have to use the boxes as coffee tables if I don't start emptying them out.


Now I'm reading The Abused Werewolf Rescue Group by Catherine Jinks. I didn't read the first book in this series, but it seems pretty good so far. I had a raffle  of the original ARC of this book that I got in November in my class. I was lucky enough to get another copy from NetGalley.

Oh, and I almost forgot. I won an ARC of Brigitta of the White Forest by Danika Dinsmore from a Goodreads contest. This will certainly be my next read. 

I finally finished Spoiled by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan. It was exactly like I predicted it would be... HILARIOUS! I didn't think I would like it, but I ended up loving it. I laughed at loud several times during the book. (It even had a nice plot.)

  1. I splurged a little at the used book store this weekend, but overall I have been doing really good at not spending money on books. I have started using the library & I just love the free book offers for Nook.....

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Armchair BEA 2012 Introductions (day 1)

First, let me start off by saying that I am very excited to be participating in Armchair BEA this year. Since this is the first day of the weeklong event, here are my answers to the interview questions:

Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Well, the answer the first part of that question, I am a middle school Language Arts teacher in Florida (and probably one of the only people in a coastal city that hates the beach). I’ve been married to my hubby for 10 years and have 2 boys. My house is a constant zoo and I’m turning 30 in a few months. There is a mid-life crisis in my near future, I’m sure, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.
I started blogging in December of 2011 out of necessity. Seriously. My students know how easily I am distracted when they ask me about books (I eventually caught on to their tactics), so I started blogging out of a need for more teaching time. (I should go ahead and mention that I never talked books all day—even…

Review: The Search for Delicious

The Search for Delicious Natalie Babbitt
Product Details

Reading level: Young Adult
Paperback: 192 pages
Publisher: Square Fish (August 21, 2007)
ISBN-10: 9780312369828
Source: My personal book


Summary from Amazon: Gaylen, the King’s messenger, a skinny boy of twelve, is off to poll the kingdom, traveling from town to farmstead to town on his horse, Marrow. At first it is merely a question of disagreement at the royal castle over which food should stand for Delicious in the new dictionary. But soon it seems that the search for Delicious had better succeed if civil war is to be avoided.


Gaylen’s quest leads him to the woldweller, a wise, 900-year-old creature who lives alone at the precise center of the forest; to Canto, the minstrel who sings him an old song about a mermaid child and who gives him a peculiar good-luck charm; to the underground domain of the dwarfs; and finally to Ardis who might save the kingdom from havoc.

My Review: I love this book! It is such a fun, easy, and enjoyable r…
