TUESDAY POTPOURRI: ADDING BOOKS TO THE SHELVES…

Another Tuesday Book Release Day!

I have downloaded two books today:  one came out on October 5 and the other was released today.

First:  October 5 Release – Crossroads, by Jonathan Franzen

Jonathan Franzen’s gift for wedding depth and vividness of character with breadth of social vision has never been more dazzlingly evident than in Crossroads.

***

Today’s release:  I Know You, by Claire McGowan

In this tense thriller from the bestselling author of What You Did and The Other Wife, a woman finds a dead body. Will she make the same mistake as last time?

***

Currently I am reading a book I downloaded in January:

All the Colors of Night, by Jayne Ann Krentz

Two psychics plunge into a dark world of deadly secrets in this second installment in the Fogg Lake trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Jayne Ann Krentz.

I had no downloads today. I scrolled through all the bookmarks I had saved and found nothing to add at this time. Could this be a new moment in my bookish life?

Meanwhile, I am reading one of my downloads from April: The Last Night in London, by Karen White. I’m enjoying it!

TUESDAY POTPOURRI: BOOKS!

Welcome to another Tuesday Book Release Day!  I pre-ordered a book, and loved when it dropped into my Kindle.  Now I have two devices, but I let this one go into my Oasis, Paige.

Last Girl Ghosted, by Lisa Unger

Secrets, obsession and vengeance converge in this riveting thriller about an online dating match turned deadly cat-and-mouse game, from the New York Times bestselling author of Confessions on the 7:45

Then I downloaded a book onto Phoebe, my Paperwhite Kindle:  it will be a reread from years ago.

Jo’s Boys, by Louisa May Alcott

I am loving my two Kindles! Now I go back and forth between them, and I’m adjusting to the smaller, slimmer Paperwhite I have named Phoebe.

TUESDAY POTPOURRI: FILLING THE SHELVES…

It’s Tuesday, and it is book release day.  This book was actually released in July, but I came across it today and added it to Paige, my Kindle.

The Stranger Behind Me, by Carol Goodman, has been on my radar.

***

Today I am still reading Apples Never Fall, by Liane Moriarty, and I’m enjoying it.

***

Yesterday I went to lunch with a friend, so I didn’t read much.  Today will be a stay-at-home day.  Reading and figuring out the budget.  I’ve been spending so much lately on goodies for my space, so I need to get a handle on it all.  LOL.

***

What does your day look like?  Oh, no, I am hearing the grinding noise outdoors and I remember that it is gardening day!  I hate that sound!!

TUESDAY POTPOURRI: BOOK RELEASES…

Welcome to another Book Release Tuesday.  Recently, I pre-ordered a new book that dropped onto my Kindle today:  Peril, by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.

The transition from President Donald J. Trump to President Joseph R. Biden Jr. stands as one of the most dangerous periods in American history.

But as # 1 internationally bestselling author Bob Woodward and acclaimed reporter Robert Costa reveal for the first time, it was far more than just a domestic political crisis.

***

Every time a new book about the previous president comes out, I vow to ignore it.  But I can’t seem to ignore Bob Woodward’s books, so I downloaded this one.

***

Today I’m reading another new release (from last week): Her Perfect Life, by Hank Phillippi Ryan.

In my efforts to fill my bookshelves, including the half-filled one above, I happily download new books almost every week. Today I added two new books to my shelves:

Apples Never Fall, by Liane Moriarty

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Big Little Lies and Nine Perfect Strangers comes a novel that looks at marriage, siblings, and how the people we love the most can hurt us the deepest

***

And then I downloaded Her Perfect Life, by Hank Phillippi Ryan

“Shocking, suspenseful, with clever twists and an abundance of secrets. Her Perfect Life kept me guessing until the end. I loved it!” ―B. A. Paris, internationally bestselling author of The Therapist and Behind Closed Doors

Think you know the person you married? Think again…

Today I will be reading some older books on my shelf, like Surfside Sisters, by Nancy Thayer…and maybe 28 Summers, by Elin Hilderbrand.

TUESDAY POTPOURRI: BOOKISH MOMENTS…

Another Tuesday, another new book.  Today’s download was released in June, but I have had my eye on it for a while.

He’s lying next to you. He’s not breathing. . . . And the killer might have been you.

Detective Chief Inspector Jonah Sheens is on the trail in this explosive crime novel from the acclaimed author of She Lies in Wait and Watching from the Dark.

TUESDAY POTPOURRI: THE BOOKS KEEP COMING…

Welcome to another Book Release Tuesday!  Today, a pre-ordered book dropped into my Kindle, and I am eager to read it.  I am also eager to fill up this newest bookshelf, above!

The Reckoning, by Mary Trump, is from the #1 bestselling author of Too Much and Never Enough: A diagnosis of America’s national trauma, and a way to heal.

***

I hesitated before purchasing this one, as I am tired of reading about the Orange Man…but I do like seeing what Mary has to say, and I even listen to her occasional videos.

***

I am reading an ARC today; the book will be released on 9/7.  The Necklace, by Matt Whitten.

The clock ticks down in a heart-pounding crusade for justice..

The story goes back and forth in time:  the past, the present, and we can almost hear the clock ticking as events unfold.  It is definitely a page turner!
