TUESDAY POTPOURRI: BOOKISH DAY…

Today I downloaded one new book…The Way We Weren’t, by Phoebe Fox, and yesterday, I added a new NetGalley ARC to my shelves.

***

The NetGalley ARC is a book from Katherine Center that will be released on July 19, 2022: The Bodyguard.

New York Times bestselling author Katherine Center’s The Bodyguard is unabashedly romantic, laugh-out-loud funny, and the perfect summer read.

Today I hope to finish reading Forgive Me, by Susan Lewis.

TUESDAY POTPOURRI: A BOOKISH DAY…

Another bookish day!  I couldn’t find any brand new releases to download, but I did find one from a favorite author, released in June.

What To Do When Someone Dies, by Nicci French.

In this ingenious stand-alone thriller from the internationally bestselling author and “razor sharp” master of suspense (People), a grieving wife is forced to ask: Which is worse—infidelity or murder?

TUESDAY POTPOURRI: BOOKS, BOOKS, BOOKS…

Good morning, and welcome to another day of Book Releases.

I didn’t download any new ones today, but I am featuring one I bought in October:  Her Perfect Family, by Teresa Driscoll.

A gripping psychological thriller from the bestselling author of I Am Watching You. The perfect family? Or the perfect lie?

***

I am reading two books right now, alternating between Crossroads, by Jonathan Franzen, which I’ve halfway finished; and The Unheard, by Nicci French.

I decided to take a break from Crossroads for a bit…and I’m glad I did. The Unheard moves much more quickly, so I am feeling more productive.

***

Yesterday was a day of outings. Not the fun kind, but there was a nice lunch halfway through. First, a dental appointment followed by the lunch…and then my booster shot!

I had a weird night. A little discomfort, but very strange dreams. I wonder what that was about? LOL

What does your day look like?

TUESDAY POTPOURRI: HAPPY BOOK DAY!

Happy book release day!  I pre-ordered a book that dropped silently onto my Kindle late last night.

The Unheard, by Nicci French

I love this author’s books!  So I’m eager to see what lies between these pages.

In this new heart-pounding standalone from the internationally bestselling author that People calls “razor sharp,” a single mother suspects her young daughter has witnessed a horrible crime when the girl draws a disturbing picture—but the deadly path to unravel the truth could cost her everything. 

***

That’s it for this week. But I have lots of still unread books to ponder. I am currently reading. The Dutch House, by Ann Patchett.

***

My actual birthday was yesterday, and I celebrated a lunch with three of my adult kids and two grandchildren.  It was the first time we’ve all gotten together in a long time.

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 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.

TUESDAY POTPOURRI: BOOK LOVE…

Another wonderful book release Tuesday has arrived!  Today my pre-ordered copy of Rock Paper Scissors, by Alice Feeney, dropped into my Kindle.  I love when that happens!

“Feeney lives up to her reputation as the “queen of the twist”…This page-turner will keep you guessing.” —Real Simple
Think you know the person you married? Think again…

***

Today I am still reading one of last week’s books:  A Slow Fire Burning, by Paula Hawkins.  Loving it!
