Welcome to another Tuesday of books and bookish things.  As I look around me at my special books and items that remind me of happy times, I continue to reach out for more of the same.

Today’s downloads:

28 Summers, by Elin Hilderbrand

A “captivating and bittersweet” novel by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Summer of ’69: Their secret love affair has lasted for decades — but this could be the summer that changes everything (People).


Home Before Dark, by Riley Sager

In the latest thriller from New York Times bestseller Riley Sager, a woman returns to the house made famous by her father’s bestselling horror memoir. Is the place really haunted by evil forces, as her father claimed? Or are there more earthbound—and dangerous—secrets hidden within its walls?


Today I am reading my NetGalley ARC that will be released 7/14/20:  What You Wish For, by Katherine Center.

“The story’s message, that people should choose joy even (and especially) in difficult and painful times, seems tailor-made for this moment. A timely, uplifting read about finding joy in the midst of tragedy, filled with quirky characters and comforting warmth.”—Kirkus (starred review)


I keep finding so many good books to read, some of which seem “tailor-made for this moment,” as noted above.

I can’t get enough of the message of finding and choosing joy.  But I still love thrillers, too, so it’s a nice mix for me.

What are your favorite books these days?  What are you reading and buying now?



    • I always enjoy HIlderbrand’s books, although I still have a couple that I haven’t yet read. I don’t know why that happens, but I guess it is like any book that stays on our shelves for a while. I am glad to have this new one, and hope to read it soon.

      Enjoy your reading and your week, Kathryn.
