Book Haul #93: The Curious Tale of the Robot Who Could Fly

Hello fellow bookworms!!!

How are you all doing??? 
How is the weather by you???
I know most of us are going into spring, with allergies, lol! But some of you are also going into fall/winter... I'm more of a sweater-weather person, I wish it was fall all year long!

We've had another wonderful week in books! Quite an eclectic pile too!
I can't wait to read them all! But most of all, I cannot wait to doodle in the new Doodle Lit book! I've posted pics on my instagram; and I'll be posting my doodles on their too! So, if you're interested in my doodles, or my books, or baby pics or just stuff in general, please come on over and follow me on Instagram too :) 

Hope you all have an awesome weekend!
Don't forget to do something kind for someone too!!! xo

  1. Nice haul! You got A Curious Tale of the In-Between! Awesome! It's hot as heck here in PA now. It seems like it was winter two weeks ago, spring for ONE week, then BAM...90 degrees. I'm definitely a fall person, but it only last for one or two weeks here (the best one or two weeks ever!). I'm following you on Instagram now, btw (I'm @meeshelly23). Have a great weekend, enjoy your new books!

  2. Lovely haul Margie. I really like the Doodle Lit book. It's like so hot here suddenly. Its like freezing, then its suddenly warm again. You got some impressive titles.

  3. I can't wait to read Hello, Goodbye, and Everything In Between! I hope you enjoy all of your books! :)

  4. Oh man. I had an opportunity to receive a copy of Robot in the Garden, but I passed it up. I have to see if I can request it from the publisher. Fantastic haul, Margie!

    happy reading. :)

  5. We have had SO many fevers and colds in the past month, it's ridiculous! I'm actually amazed that we've gone over a week without getting sick! And I so could do with fall all year round ... it's my favourite season! If only it could be fall with the pretty leaves all year. And that Doodle Lit book looks so cool! I'm checking it out right now!

  6. Aw, he's such a cutie! :D He looks like he's loving that book!
    Great haul this week, I'm very excited for Lauren DeStefano's first middle grade! And for Jennifer Smith's new one! :D
