In My Mailbox (11)


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


For review:


Stay With Me by Paul Griffin. No cover image available at this time, but here's the synopsis from my copy:

Cece and Mack didn't expect to fall in love.She's a sensitive A-student; he's a high school dropout. But soon they're spending every moment together, bonding over a rescued dog, telling their darkest secrets, making plans for the future. Everything is perfect. Until. Until. Mack makes a horrible mistake, and suddenly the future they'd planned becomes impossible. In this stark new reality, bothe Cece and Mack must find meaning and hope in the memories of what they had. To survive when the person they love can't stay.   
 Bought at Books-a-Million:

Hush, Hush After Peeps The Smile

Bought at Barnes & Noble:

Siren Graceling 

I think it should be noted that my cover of Siren looks MUCH more interesting than this one I found on Amazon. I probably would not have picked this version up.

Given to Me:

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. 

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.

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…
