Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

  1. The Chocolate Jewel Case . . . yumm - you had me at Chocolate! :) I've got to run and raid my hidden stash!!

    Here's my Mailbox! ~ Wendi

  2. I've read all the Joanna Carl books and that series is wonderful! One of my favorites. Enjoy your books.

  3. Sounds like you had a magical week!
    The chocolate book does sound great.
    My mailbox is here

  4. Sounds like some good books this week :)

    Here is my Mail

  5. Those are some nice books you got. I am hoping to the get one from SA. BTW don't know if you saw on my blog but you won a book. The Mrs meyers book. Can you please send me your mailing addy. Thanks.

  6. I'm so jealous of Keeper of Light & Dust! Mostert's last book, Season of the Witch, was gorgeous. Congrats on a great mailbox week :)

  7. As I told some other blog pals, I am going to try to do MM next Monday. I got so many books this week I can't remember. It is such fun to add to my TBR pile and build up the stress of so little time to read and so much I want to get to!
    QUESTION: when did you start your blog? For some reason I thought it was at the same time as me in beginning of January but I am probably wrong. If it was, what is it you do that I am doing wrong? You have so many awards, followers, etc...I just can't seem to generate enough traffic--yeah I know I am having a pity party but just wondered if you have any tips. Thanks! and yes, great blog!

  8. great list of books this week. I also received Keeper of Light and Dust! Here's my mailbox:

  9. I need to look into Mischief Maker, it sounds like it might be good for my imp of a nephew.

  10. Talk of the Town sounds fun!

  11. I got The Mischief Maker's Manual too. The Chocolate Jewel Case sounds good. Well, anything chocolate sounds good.

  12. Thank you for stopping by the mailbox this week. My wish list is growing as I just added 'The Chocolate Jewel Case' by Joanna Carl.

  13. You had a great week. Like the titles, especially when they mention mischief and chocolate! ;) Happy reading!
