In My Mailbox (5)

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

This week was a good week for free books.(Yay!)

Books I Won:

I won a copy of Banana Kiss from a fellow blogger's contest (blkosiner's book blog). I also won Jesus Potter Harry Christ from a Goodreads contest. I did, however, pass this book on to my dad since my shelf space is getting limited (again). His excitement over a new book makes it pretty obvious who I take after.

For Review:

The Dark City #1 (Relic Master)I received a copy in the mail of Relic Master: The Dark City  by Catherine Fisher from the publisher. This will be my next book to read. It looks really good! I also like that the remaining books in the series are set to hit the shelves over the next four months-- one book per month. I hate waiting for books to be released when I find a series that I like. I have zero patience.  

Princess Callie and the Totally Amazing Talking Tiara (Callie Chronicles)I also received an e-book of Princess Callie and the Totally Amazing Talking Tiara . It's a mouthful, I know! The review is coming of this book because it was just too cute. I really enjoyed it.



Books I Bought:

Ok, I admitI have a problem. I can't stop buying books. At least these were from a store and not off Ebay this time. (sigh) I picked up Once a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough and The Graveyard Book  by Neil Gaiman. Both of these books look great. I hate to put them at the end of my TBR shelf. (I'm working on shelf #2 at the moment.)

  2. Nice IMM this week and I definitely understand how it is to be losing space on your bookshelf! If it weren't for my NookColor I wouldn't even have a book blog, because I ran out of room long ago haha.

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…

Book Blitz: Visions by Lisa Amowitz

Vision by Lisa Amowitz Release Date: 09/09/14 Spencer Hill Press
Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.
