It is time for new releases…again!  Don’t you love Tuesday Release Day?

One new release that I had pre-ordered came to Pippa, my Kindle, late last night, even though today is technically the release date.  But I am not complaining.

A Stranger in the House, by Shari Lapena, is one I’ve been ogling for a while.  I loved the author’s previous book, The Couple Next Door, so it was a no-brainer to add this one to my list.


In this neighborhood, danger lies close to home. A domestic thriller packed full of secrets, and a twisty story that never stops—from the bestselling author of The Couple Next Door

He looks at her, concerned. “How do you feel?” She wants to say,
Terrified. Instead, she says, with a faint smile, “Glad to be home.


And then I downloaded Seeing Red, by Sandra Brown, another new release.


#1 New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown delivers nonstop suspense and supercharged sexual tension in a thriller about tainted heroism and vengeance without mercy.


That’s all I have so far, but by this afternoon, there might be more.  I subscribe to a service that e-mails new release titles in my favorite genres.  I always feel as if I’m opening a Christmas package when I get the notice.

I am trying to cut down just a bit on my purchased books…in the last two months, my numbers are lower than they were in the earlier months of the year.

In the months from January through June, the numbers were in the double digits…yikes!  But in July, I purchased seven books…and so far in August, nine.


Do you eagerly await new releases? Do you buy more books, or borrow them?  Do you add more review books than purchased ones?



    1. Thanks for visiting, Patty, and I know that I need to find other ways to get books…in addition to review books. Library, for example.

      I have a hard time waiting for the books to come to the library…wanting them as soon as they are released, if not sooner. Impatience is my name. LOL.


  1. I mark any new release I really want to read into my review reading calendar! Not many but a few and then I pre-order them. I probably get more review books than what I buy though. Just enjoyed Seeing Red.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Kathryn, and one of the new ways I curb my enthusiasm about buying is to bookmark the titles I want on Amazon…and then that gives me a little time to decide if I must have it now…or if it can wait a bit.
