Good Morning everyone.

Its been a very busy week here. Michael started grade 7 this week and its a new journey for him because he has started high school. So its been fun trying to get back into a routine for early mornings and packing lunches. Thankfully he has a late start so that helps a bit.

Also this morning we are doing the funeral service for my mom so its going to be a long and stressful day. Thanks to everyone who left comments and sent me messages. They were all greatly appreciated.

Today I only have two books to share with you and its something I bought when I was shopping at Walmart to pick up the last of the school supplies and its this one:

I have been hearing alot of good things about the book and I decided to pick it up. I will be reading this sometime in Sept/Oct for an online book club, TBR Book Club, that is hosted by Andrea from The Overstuffed Bookcase and Jessie from Jessie Marie Reads 

I was at Costco picking up things for the reception for my mom’s funeral and spotted this:

The regular price in a book store is almost $20.00 and I got it for $11.50 how could I pass that up? So I had to pick it. I am excited to dig into this new series as I am a fan of James Patterson’s books.

What did you get this week? Have you read any of these books?

Good Morning everyone. This is a pre-scheduled post that I am currently writing before I leave on vacation. So I hope everyone had a good week.

I have no idea if I got anything for review this week as I am away so I will show you a bunch of books I got just before leaving. I had a coffee date with my friend about a week ago (as I am writing this) and I picked up the following books:

talknerdytometote

I received this tote for $5 because I spent over $30. The tote is originally $16.00.  I really like it.

 

This is book 13 in the series. I thought I had this book but I can’t find it with the series I have.
This is book 16 in the series.
Chapters had Go Set A Watchman on sale for $25.00 (regular priced $34.99) so I grabbed it because I am sure I will love it.

The following were anniversary gifts because I love anything Mary Poppins. I think these are the first four books. I really like the covers for the books.



So that is all I got, I hope you got a few great books this week.

Next week I will be posting the books I picked up on vacation. Not quite sure what I will have but I am sure a few since I will be hitting Anderson’s in Naperville IL. I love that little indie bookstore.

Good early morning everyone. This is a pre-scheduled post that I am writing ahead of time. I am currently away and on hopefully what is turning into a good family vacation. I was a little bit worried about going away with all that is going on but with reassurance from my sister I decided it was best to take a break and in all reality if needed I am a flight away and can be home within a few hours.

I did purchase these books about two weeks ago and I am using them for this post.
The Land of Stories: Beyond the Kingdom by Chris Colfer is the 4th in the series and I am super excited to read it. I love the cover. I just discovered that he is now working on a picture book to go along with the series. How neat will that be?
The last book I picked up was NYPD Red 2 by James Patterson and Marshall Karp. I love reading anything by James Patterson and I am behind in his books so I figured it would be easier to get back into him with the starting of this series. I am bringing this and the first book with me on vacation to read.

Do you bring alot of books with you on vacation? Do you go to book stores when your on vacation?

This is all I got this week. I will be home for next week’s mailbox post and I will blog about the books I bought on vacation because you know I will be shopping at Barnes & Noble will I am in the USA and any other place that has a book store. Hope your all having a good week. See you next week 🙂

Good Morning everyone. I hope everyone had a good week and hopefully a good start to the weekend.

By the time you probably read this we will be on the road.

This week I only have a few things to share with you. The first one is the On The Go Game Pad that I bought on sale that I thought would be perfect for our road trip and to break up some time.

The following were anniversary gifts that I got:

I spotted this in paperpack so I nabbed it. I am always curious to see how celebrities write.

With my love for owls Michael got this Owl Forest Journal for me to write it and if you recall it matches the agenda I bought recently.

I have had this on my list for a little while now and decided now was the time to ask for it and I am so happy I got it. It sounds like a great book. 

Hope you have a great week and a better weekend.

Good Morning everyone and Happy 4th of July to all my American friends and followers.

This week its really quiet in book as you can see. My friend, Jennifer, who I have been meeting up with on Friday’s is away on vacation so I didn’t really go to Chapters apart from a quick run to the Coles book store because I needed book two in the V.C Andrews series so this is all that came home with me:

momsweeklyplanner1516

This is the Owls Forest 2016 Mom’s Weekly Planner. It was super cute so I had to pick it up. I need to get back on track with organizing myself.

The book I went into Coles for was:

 I use to be a huge fan of the V.C Andrews books and I would buy them as soon as  they came out but in the last 15 years or so I continued to buy them and just  never read them and I need to get back into reading them.

Have you read anything by VC Andrews? If so do you still read them?

 

 

 
For Review I got this book:

The Santagelos by Jackie Collins came from Simon & Schuster UK. Thank you S&S for sending this. I have never read anything by Jackie Collins before so I am a little curious about the book. Do you need to read the previous books or can you jump right into this one?

This is what I got this week, what about you?

Are you an organizer/planner?

June Book Unhauling #6

BookUnhauling

Good Morning and welcome to my June Book Unhauling post.

I decided in January that I wanted to document how many books I was giving away each month to see if I was making any kind of dent in my book collection. As of right now it seems like I am buying more then I am unhauling but at least its making me aware that I am reading and passing my books along which is a good thing.

Perhaps next year I need to document monthly my book haul purchases, that might be the thing that could scare me and stop myself from buying so many books each month because realistically I add them to my well mailbox post and I never give it a second glace and don’t really see it but  perhaps at a months glace it could be an eye opener. Something to think about right?

So here is what I unhaulded this month:

  1. Olive & Beatrix: The Not so Itty Bitty Spider (this was a BEA book that I passed to my friend)
  2. Where’s Walrus & Penguin (another BEA book that I passed onto my friend)
  3. Even Monsters Say Goodnight (another BEA book that I passed onto my friend)
  4. Harry Potter & The Sorcerer’s Stone (another BEA sampler that I passed to to my friend)
  5. Magnus Chase & The Gods of Asgant (a BEA sampler that I passed along to a friend)
  6. Dancing Through Life by Candance Cameron Bure (a BEA book that I passed along to a friend)
  7. Unslut (a BEA book that I passed along to a friend)
  8. This is Where it Ends (BEA book that I passed along to a friend)
  9. Someone Else’s Love Story by Joshilyn Jackson
  10. The Wonder Bread Summer by Jessica Anya Blau
  11. Two Lies and a Spy by Kat Carlton
  12. The Book of Someday by Dianne Dizon
  13. The Time Fetch by Amy Herrick
  14. Roxy’s Story by V.C Andrews
  15. Awake by Natasha Preston (BEA Book that I am passing along to a friend)
  16. Devilish by Maureen Johnson
  17. Meeting Mr. Wrong by Stephanie Snowe
  18. Confessions of a Beauty Addict by Nadine Haobsh
  19. Sleepwalking in Daylight by Elizabeth Flock
  20. The Unit by Ninni Holqvist
  21. The Pretend Wife by Bridget Asher
  22. A Match Made In High School by Kristin Walker
  23. Thea Stilton and the Dragon’s Code
  24. The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins

*All the BEA books in the beginning have been read and reviews are scheduled to post on release date of the books.

So today I have released  24  books and my total to date is 113 books. I am slowly making progress.

Do you have a hard time passing your books along?

Good Morning. I hope everyone is having a good start to the day and weekend. Its hard to believe that its the end of June already. Where is the time going?

This week I have a couple of books that I bought a little while ago when I had my regular coffee/shopping date with my friend Jennifer. Its always so nice to get together with her every Friday to sit and chat about anything and everything. Lately its been about school and our dislike of what is going on..

I will miss our coffee dates because she is currently on vacation and I don’t think we will be meeting again until July 10th so I am hoping that I can force myself to stay away from Chapters during that time. Wish me luck.

So this is what I bought:


Spy School and Spy Camp by Stuart Gibbs was a grade 6 graduation gift for Michael along with a gift card. 

I have been eyeing Grace’s book since it came out and just never bought it but when I saw it on the bargain table for $7.99 I just couldn’t pass it up.

I have been eyeing this one since it came out and I finally decided that I would pick it up to read. I love the cover and its sounds like a great debut novel.

Have you read any of these books?
