New Book Release Day! But it has also been a week of adding review books to my shelves: Two for two. Two review books, and two purchases.
My vow to cut down on purchases in favor of review books and library books has led to fewer purchases. But since I couldn’t get either of my purchases this week from the library or from NetGalley, I feel justified in these purchases.
The Female Persuasion, by Meg Wolitzer, is a library book that I could have if I wanted to wait weeks and weeks…and then wait some more. I am not that patient when the book is one that is calling to me!
A novel about power and influence, ego and loyalty, womanhood and ambition. At its heart, The Female Persuasion is about the flame we all believe is flickering inside of us, waiting to be seen and fanned by the right person at the right time. It’s a story about the people who guide and the people who follow (and how those roles evolve over time), and the desire within all of us to be pulled into the light.
Today I added The New Neighbors, by Simon Lelic to my purchases: not even on my library’s shelves…so there! LOL
Two review books were approved and added to my shelves:
Not Her Daughter (e-book), by Rea Frey – (NG – 8/21)
Emotionally powerful and wire-taut, Not Her Daughter raises the question of what it means to be a mother—and how far someone will go to keep a child safe.
Then...Shadow Dancing (e-book, Country Club Murders), by Julie Mulhern – (NG – 6/19)
I have loved every book in this series!
Synopsis: Visiting a psychic is outside the norm for Ellison Russell. Finding bodies is not. Unfortunately, the psychic’s crystal ball says she’ll soon be surrounded by death. Again.
Now there’s a corpse in the front drive, a witchy neighbor ready to turn Ellison and her (not so) little dog into toadstools, and a stripper named Starry Knight occupying the guest room.
How did 1975 go so wrong so quickly?
Ellison must handle Mother (who’s found a body of her own), make up with a certain handsome detective, and catch a killer, or the death surrounding her might be her own.
So…my Tuesday has been productive so far. I don’t plan to add any more purchases…but who knows what review books might land on my shelf?
What do you love about Tuesdays?
