Welcome to another Book Release Tuesday. Check out my photo, above, in which I spotlight my new Tiny Madeline Doll, which arrived from Amazon yesterday.  I was disappointed, a little, as I expected her to be the size of my “formerly owned” Madeline, who got lost along the way in my move. (See below, Halloween creatures standing by).


Now I am trying to retrieve the doll above…but I suspect that she went the way of some of my other items…sold!

That’s what happens when others move you, especially when you are relocating to a smaller space.  LOL.

Meanwhile, I am loving new books today, and just downloaded this one from Elin HIlderbrand:

What Happens in Paradise

Secret lives and new loves emerge in the bright Caribbean sunlight, in the follow-up to national bestseller Winter in Paradise…

A year ago, Irene Steele had the shock of her life: her loving husband, father to their grown sons and successful businessman, was killed in a helicopter crash. But that wasn’t Irene’s only shattering news: he’d also been leading a double life on the island of St. John, where another woman loved him, too.


On the weekend, a new book came from Amazon…another to add to my “Kennedy Collection”:

The Life of John F. Kennedy, Jr.:  America’s Reluctant Prince, by Steven M. Gillion



A major new biography of John F. Kennedy Jr. from a leading historian who was also a close friend, America’s Reluctant Prince is a deeply researched, personal, surprising, and revealing portrait of the Kennedy heir the world lost too soon.


On my list is another book that I hope to add to my shelves soon:

The Book of Gutsy Women, by Hillary Rodham Clinton and Chelsea Clinton

Hillary Rodham Clinton and her daughter, Chelsea, share the stories of the gutsy women who have inspired them—women with the courage to stand up to the status quo, ask hard questions, and get the job done.


What books are you adding to your shelves?  Which ones are on your list?
