Tasty Treats (4)

Hi there!

I’ve missed you all so much! I have been so crazy busy with work and other work related things that I’ve been memeing only…which is kinda lame I know, but something had to give for a little while! Things are kinda back to normal pace now (at least for a little while) so I’m trying to start making up for lost blogging time.

So, this is still a meme post, but I don’t do it on a weekly basis so I figure its different!

This week I have had the opportunity to get some tasty treats to add to my reading stack, so let’s see what they are!

Skinny A Girl Named Digit
I was able to pick up this copy of Skinny by Donna Cooner for free Tuesday morning at our county’s annual Principal’s Breakfast. Every year our local Media Specialist professional organization hosts a breakfast thanking our principals for support.  Everyone gets to leave with a free book, so when I saw Skinny on the table I snatched it up because I’ve heard great things about it!  I also saw A Girl Named Digit by Annabel Monaghan at my public library this week and it just sounds so cute I had to grab it!

My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece Dead City

I recently discovered that there is a Forever Young Adult book club meeting at my public library…I can’t wait to check it out! Apparently My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece by Annabel Pitcher is their November read.  I’ll be honest, it sounds really weird, but I’m going to give it a try! This weekend I was able to spend a few days at the Florida Association for Media in Education conference, which I love! I presented on a monthly event we do in my Media Center, threw a social hour for our local organization, and got a chance to meet local Orlando author James Ponti, who wrote Dead City.  He was really friendly and funny and I can’t wait to start reading it!

Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter

You guys know how much I love Ally Carter’s books, so I was so happy to finally find the audiobook for Uncommon Criminals in my local library!  I’m already on disc five of six, so obviously it’s a good one!

Read Tshirt

A the FAME conference, there is always a lady selling bookish and library related -.  I’ve never had the chance to get any, so this year I decided I was going to buy myself a tshirt…and I did! There was this super cute hoodie I wanted, but it was like $40, so I chose this cute t-shirt instead.  It fits perfectly and I can’t wait to wear it to school!

So there you have it- all the fun bookish things I received this week! What fun books or bookish treats did you get recently?


Top Ten Tuesday: June New Releases

Top Ten TuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted by The Broke and Bookish to encourage book bloggers to get to know one another.  It’s always a lot of work, but its one of my favorite memes to participate in!

Every month brings new releases to drool over, and June has plenty to drool about!  So, instead of doing the official theme for the week,  my Top Ten list for the week is June New Releases!
