TUESDAY POTPOURRI: NEW BOOKS, RISKS, & A BIRTHDAY GIRL…

It is New Book Release Time!

Yesterday I downloaded a book released last week…one I had forgotten about:

An American Marriage, by Tayari Jones (An Oprah 2018 Selection)

“A tense and timely love story . . . Packed with brave questions about race and class.”— People

“Compelling.”— The Washington Post

“Epic . . . Transcendent . . . Triumphant.”—Elle

***

Then…today I downloaded this new thriller from Jonathan Kellerman:  Night Moves.

The #1 New York Times bestselling author and master of the psychological thriller makes all the right moves in this new novel of spellbinding suspense.

I am a big fan of this author…but I still have another of his books on Pippa…unread:  Crime Scene, a collaboration between Jonathan and Jesse Kellerman.  I must admit that the collaboration gave me pause…although I’ve read books by Jesse, too. 

I do prefer the Alex Delaware/Milo Sturgis books by Jonathan, however.  But…I’ll bring this one forward, since I’ve had it since last summer.

Last night I finished reading another book that I downloaded recently (in January):  Lie With Me, by Sabine Durrant – (click for my review).

Since I stayed up late reading it, I was surprised to wake up early today, so I quickly wrote the review.  I had planned to sleep in, but my body and mind had other ideas.

Next I’ll be reading Two Girls Down, by Louisa Luna:

Today is my oldest granddaughter Aubrey’s 21st birthday (she’s older than my other granddaughter, Fiona, by eight days!).  She has had an interesting year, attending a university semester in Prague during the Fall.  Check out this frightening move:  playing with her phone…on a ledge?  Perhaps it is not as risky as it looks…

What bookish or not-so-bookish risks are you taking these days?  Are you looking forward to any new releases?  What are you reading?

  1. I read and loved Lie With Me And Two Girls Down…I am not taking any risks lately…just trying to stay flu free and healthy and I am reading and loving The Wife…I know you loved that one, too.

    • Oh, yes, all three of these books are great! I loved The Wife, Lie With Me, and I’m enjoying Two Girls Down.

      Health risks are definitely the kind to avoid. Stay away from those flu bugs!

      Ever since I retired from working with families and kids every day, I’ve stayed pretty well…knock wood.

      Thanks for visiting, Patty.
