HUMP DAY POTPOURRI: HAPPY DAYS AHEAD! — JULY 25

When book lovers think of delightful and happy days ahead, it usually involves a book we’re eager to read.

For awhile, I’ve been drooling over this one….and because it’s payday today, I ordered it for Sparky.  Yay!

Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn, is a tale of a marriage gone horribly, horribly wrong.

Marriage can be a real killer.
One of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time, New York Times bestseller Gillian Flynn takes that statement to its darkest place in this unputdownable masterpiece about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong. The Chicago Tribune proclaimed that her work “draws you in and keeps you reading with the force of a pure but nasty addiction.” Gone Girl’s toxic mix of sharp-edged wit and deliciously chilling prose creates a nerve-fraying thriller that confounds you at every turn.

Don’t you want to read it right now?

Other books coming soon on Sparky:

You Are the Love of My Life, by Susan Richards Shreve is from an author I enjoy.  Plus…it will satisfy the “Y” title in my A-Z Challenge…lol

It is 1973 and Watergate is on everyone’s lips. Lucy Painter is a children’s book illustrator and a single mother of two. She leaves New York and the married father of her children to live in a tightly knit Washington neighborhood in the house where she grew up and where she discovered her father’s suicide. Lucy hopes for a fresh start, but her life is full of secrets: her children know nothing of her father’s death or the identity of their own father. As the new neighbors enter their insular lives, her family’s safety and stability become threatened.

Two or Three Things I Forgot to Tell You, by Joyce Carol Oates. (Coming August 21, 2012)

It wasn’t like she had not warned us.

It wasn’t like she had not prepared us.

We’d known that something was wrong those last several months.

But then, Tink hasn’t actually vanished. Tink is gone, and yet—she is here somewhere, even if we can’t see her.

Tink? Are you—here?

    1. I am very excited about Gone Girl…and the others I’m expecting. I got two more Vine books this week: Grace Grows and Those We Love Most. Thanks for stopping by, Patty, and good luck at whittling down those Vines!
