SUNDAY POTPOURRI: BOOKISH TIDBITS & TREASURES — MAY 12

Sunday logo

Welcome to another Sunday Potpourri, an event that brings together all the tidbits and treasures of the past and upcoming weeks.

First, take a peek at my Sunday Salon post, in which you’ll see blog posts and reviews from the week.

Now….let’s reflect on some upcoming releases that I’ve discovered…and added to my “must have” list:

Kind of Cruel, by Sophie Hannah.  I’m a big fan of her dark, twisted reads.

A Tidbit:  “Kind, cruel, kind of cruel.” Amber thinks it’s just nonsense, a side effect of being hypnotized for the first time. But when she’s arrested for a brutal murder two hours later, those four words are the key to clearing her name… if only she could remember where she’d seen them.

And then there’s Necessary Lies, by Diane Chamberlain, another favorite author. (Coming Sept. 3)

Tidbit:  Bestselling author Diane Chamberlain delivers a breakout book about a small southern town fifty years ago, and the darkest—and most hopeful—places in the human heart….

And I already mentioned this next one at my Sunday Salon post, but I can’t emphasize enough how much I adore this author’s books:
After Her, by Joyce Maynard, coming August 20.  (She brought us a number of favorites, like Labor Day).

It’s the summer of 1979, and a dry, hot, northern California school vacation stretches ahead for Rachel and her younger sister Patty – the daughters a larger-than-life, irresistibly handsome and chronically unfaithful detective father who loves to make women happy, and the mother whose heart he broke. Left to their own devices, the inseparable sisters spend their days studying record jackets, concocting elaborate fantasies about the life of the mysterious neighbor who moves in down the street, and playing dangerous games on the mountain that rises up behind their house…..then young women start showing up dead.  Imagine what happens next!

Soon I’m off to get ready for my Mother’s Day brunch with my daughter and grandson…and some friends.
Enjoy your day!
