      1. Bea

        I keep forgetting about Cat Thursday, I do want do participate in that.

        You got some lovelies and congrats on winning the cookbooks. ๐Ÿ™‚

      2. Wow you had a busy week! Do you follow smitten kitchen? She was here last year for an event and people love her cook book. I love the cover for reckoning.

      3. I love cookbooks! I seriously have an obsession with them. I wish I could remember to use them more often, though. Yay, for your ARCS! I never heard of Wish, and I have yet to start the Bloodline’s series, I do own the first book, so that counts for something, lol. Have a great week!!

      4. Great looking haul! ๐Ÿ™‚ Those cookbooks sound yummy, especially the Christmas cookie one! ;-D

        I really need to read some witchy books – I’m signed up for the challenge but haven’t got round to reading a witchy book yet. Thanks for the reminder! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Have a lovely week!

      5. Ooo, recipe books! I hope you share what you’ll be cooking ๐Ÿ™‚ So I can tell hubs to make it too, since I can’t cook – I’m the person who can burn everything, even water, lol!
        Enjoy your new reads ๐Ÿ™‚

      6. Flower jealousy! (pouts) Nobody loves me…

        Have you never read To Kill A Mockingbird before? Iโ€™m surprised. I thought everyone was required to read it in high school. It was practically beaten to death and the shoved down our throats for us.

        If youโ€™ve never ruined a copper pot by forgetting it on the stove, then you cook just fine.
