TUESDAY POTPOURRI: NEW BOOK RELEASES, OLD FAVORITES, SAVORING…

It is time!  Time for new Book Releases.  So far, I’ve downloaded one, a book I actually pre-ordered:

Here We Lie, by Paula Treick DeBoard, “A complex look at the long-standing consequences of privilege and toxic masculinity…. Compulsively readable!” —Kate Moretti, New York Times bestselling author of The Vanishing Year

“This story particularly resonates now, in the throes of the #MeToo movement.”—Booklist

Even as I eagerly anticipate more releases today, I can’t help but think of books I’ve loved in the past, books that will remain memorable…forever.  Sheila, at Book Journey, has asked bloggers to list all-time favorites, and she will compile a list.  I chose these books:

White Oleander, by Janet Fitch

House of Sand and Fog, by Andre DuBus III

Open House, by Elizabeth Berg

***

There are more, of course, but one thing all three have in common:  I read them pre-blogging, during a time when I savored my books.  Nowadays, I seem to quickly move on, so I can read as many new books as possible.

One of my vows for this year is to savor more of my books.

Speaking of which, I finished a lovely book last night, one that might be savor-worthy:

The Almost Sisters, by Joshilyn Jackson (click title/cover for review)

Currently Reading:  Promise Not to Tell, by Jayne Ann Krentz

A broken promise reveals a terrifying legacy in this electrifying novel from the New York Times bestselling author of When All the Girls Have Gone.

  1. I’ve started the Maggie O’Farrell book but only about 50 pages in, so far so good. Like you I want to slow down my reading where possible. But admit sometimes I do speed read when I sit down to it! Your three really good books I have never come across.
