Good morning *as I shuffle through the kitchen hair all a twang in sleep pajamas and large fluffy slippers*
Today Chance and I are road tripping to St Cloud. I need to look at a couple of things at Hennen’s (the furniture store) and then of course we need to stop at Barnes and Noble (tradition when I am in the area) and maybe we will hit Mongo’s on the way back. I am hoping not to make a long day out of this as I want to get back home and do a little reading.
For Alyce’s Saturday snapshot I wanted to post this:
This morning as I was looking at my Good reads email I was all excited to see some of the beautiful new releases coming out! (Ignore the mass piles of books behind me as we share in this moment of new books).
I mean just look at them!
NEW RELEASES BY GENRE
history & biography
memoir & autobiography
mystery & thriller
graphic novels & comics
Looking at these, I have heard good things about West Of Here, I am absolutely kicking myself that I have taken the time to read Delirium yet even though it is on my Nook., Fortunate Sons looks interesting, I just read a review on The History Of Witches that sounded interesting enough, and Madame Tussaud is the latest ny Michele Moran – and of course that is totally SSQQQUUUEEEEE worthy! Of course there is also Sarah Pekkenen’s new one Skipping A Beat (not pictured here) but woo….. I loved her last book.

I need to read West of Here, and finish Swamplandia! I’d love to read Weird Al’s book, too!
I have West Of Here Marie, have not started it yet.
Madame Tussaud was in my mailbox yesterday!!! I want to read Skipping a Beat too. So many good books!
It is spooky how good they look Mary! I have enought to read I really do! 😛
I just got A Discovery of Witches to be reviewed.
I am just afraid that I have chosen a wrong book.
Since I read the first page, the word choices seem difficult for me to understand. But let see, If the next pages can give me something better
Thanks for posting those cover above.
I really want to read Angelfire and The Iron Witch
Aleetha hang in there on A Discovery of Witches, I have seen some excellent reviews on this from bloggers I trust. 😀
I have read, The Fates Will Find Their Way, received West of Here in the mail this week, and want badly to read Delirium!
I am with you on Delirium Shelly – that one looks so good!
Oh my gosh…it is posts like this that have me salivating. What is wrong with me that I could gain such a sense of thrill just looking at photos of new releases??? I really must be a book nerd, and if I am …well then…I am a happy one!! I really need to pick up my reading pace because there are several in there that I want to read!
I have already read “Madame Tussaud”; an excellent book. I have read it already and so I very much agree that it is SSQQQUUUEEEEE worthy.
I enjoy Michele Morna’s writing – I just knew it was going to be wonderful 😀
all of the memoirs have me itching to go the bookstore….BUT
i have over 500+ in my shelves already and a library hold list half that size (slight exaggeration on that one…don’t think they allow that many holds!)
so i will add them to my notebook of “must have really soon”
enjoy your saturday!
Diana same here – I have several library books out now yet to read and a couple more waiting for me to pick up. 😀
Just about every one of those historical fiction new releases has me wanting to skip breakfast and speed read through my ‘currently reading’ pile! Have fun today!
Sorry Bonnie – I think I may be a bad influence 🙂
Madame Tussaud is definitely on my must read list! Exit the Actress and A Discovery of Witches are also books I’m interested in. I’ve already read Delirium (loved it) and The Iron Witch (liked it).
Have fun shopping today!
Delirium waits for me and so does Iron With – I want to read the Iron series all together – back to back 😀
Fun picture! Great pile of books too. You’ve got a few there that I have my eye on . . .
Too many books are catching my eye Trish – I am going to have to start wearing blinders! 😯
You and your friends always look like you are having such a good time! And, thanks for making me drool all over my keyboard when I saw all those beautiful books!
Helen we really do. I try to put my everything into all I do and have discovered that good strong friendships are part of a good balance for me. 😀
As if my To Read list isn’t long enough…people keep writing *more* books. Sheesh. 😉
I can’t see all the books in your post because they get lost under the right sidebar. Of the ones I can see, Oracle of Stamboul is on my bookshelf and is going to be one of the first reads in March. Amaryllis in Blueberry is on my To Read list. (I hoped to win a copy from Goodreads First Reads, but no. :/) and I’ve heard nothing but good things about The Paris Wife and A Discovery of Witches.
Oh, I love books entirely too much. 🙂
I know – why don’t they stop? Oh yeah, we don’t want them too! 😛
I noticed the pic was too big too – it wasnt on my post page but oh well… I tried to shrink it and it didi not work.
Amaryllis in Blueberry is just an awesome titile!
It looks like y’all were having fun! I know what you mean about books – I have stacks too, but there are so many new ones coming out that I don’t want to miss – I don’t even know where to start! I need a maid, a chef and a personal secretary!
We were Kathy – we were on our way to the cabin for the weekend and stopped in Duluth for dinner and then started walking the park. There was no one else there so we took the liberty to have some fun pictures! 😀
I can’t wait to read the new J. D. Robb one. I’m a great fan. Also the Dana Stabenow one.
Marlene I have never read a J D Robb…. I should make a plan to try her writing under that name.
It’s nice to see a goofing off shot like this. You seem so very happy!
I need these pictures this time of year J L. 😛 When it is so clod outside and all I want to do is hide in a pile of blankets and hoodies – I need to remember that it will not always be this….
I actually for once preordered some books! I preordered Darkest Mercy by Melissa Marr and Pale Demon by Kim Harrison. I can’t wait for them to come on the 22nd! 🙂 There are a ton of great books coming out and I need to stop buying books – seriously. I think I’m over 500 on my TBR at home. Hope you have fun at St. Cloud!
I like to pre order Kristen or I tend to forget release dates until i see everyone else gushing and I am doing a mental head slap! 😀
I think I recognize Leif Erickson Park! Go ahead. Read Delirium. I thought it was an interesting dystopia. Of all the new books above, I am most looking forward to the new J.D. Robb and the new Jeaniene Frost. A Discovery of Witches has really been tempting me lately but I have managed to resist so far.
Have a great day!
Yup – that is the park Kathy! 😀 I am going to Barnes and Noble today so I will be in a very tempting spot to find titles 😀
I have Madame Tussard and the Oracle of S.
Fortunate Sons, Pioneer Women and a Paris Wife look good.
I am excited about the Oracle one too Esme – I hope to get that on this weeks What I Am reading list 😀
Of the above, ones I really want to read include Amaryllis, Red Herring, Pioneer Woman. And maybe Oracle of Stamboul. Ahh, so many books! 😀
Hope you have a good jaunt!
Thanks Hannah – I am hoping to be out of here soon but I am still working on my review for today.
Barnes and Noble is always an adventure! 😀
Love looking at all those great covers. There’s so many great ones being released every day..how will we ever be able to keep up???
Great photo of you and the girls!!
Staci – I have come to terms that I could live three lifetimes and not catch up… yet…. I still try 😀
Have a great Saturday, Sheila! Sounds like fun!
Thanks Rebecca! 😀
What a great photo! You are such daredevils…LOL
Thanks for sharing.
Love the new book selections…I’ve noticed that I’ve been ordering lots of things for “Sparky,” my Kindle…thinking I won’t have to feel guilty, since they don’t take up shelf space…ha!
I read and reviewed Reading Women, as a review copy…loved it! (On my Miles to Go blog).
Here’s my SATURDAY SNAPSHOT
OOH – reading Women sounds good – I am going to have to check that out when I get home….
Great Saturday Snapshot. You all look like your having a great time. Have a great day!
Thanks Sherrie 😀
I love the photo of you guys goofing off!
Several of the books there are either on my TBR list or wish list. I’m actually in the middle of Madame Tussaud right now and it’s good so far.
Oh I bet the book is good Alyce – I really enjoy her writing!
What a great picture. It’s always nice to have photos of good times with friends!
Here’s my snapshot: http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2011/02/saturday-snapshot-february-12.html
I enjoy pictures a lot Bev… I need to pull out some older stuff.
I have almost all the books in the following; fiction, history, memoir, mystery and historical fiction. Of the ones I have currently read I have not been disappointed. 🙂
There are so many good one coming out Jennifer!
I so want to read Iron Witch, and can’t believe I forgot about Delirium! And there’s a new Eve Dallas book! Yea!
I know! I have Iron Witch and Delirium but have not started either yet.
I almost bought The Discovery of Witches the other day, but couldn’t convince myself to part with the $34. But there is always Kindle ($10). it looks so interesting.
WHOA – $34 dollars Margaret – I would have passed on that price too…. wow – I would have passed on it for anything over $20.
I will look for it on Nook then.
I am a bargain hunter, the chase is half the fun..
Go Margaret go! 😀
I love reading your meanderings every morning. Fun snapshot too for Snapshot Saturdays!
Thanks Debbie 🙂 I like doing the meanderings.
Got the meanderings in my mailbox this evening when i got home and had a leaf through the books – saw the synopsis of ‘The Perfect Play’ i think i HAVE to read it!
Hope you had a nice weekend!
