So...

Yesterday was fun but I am so glad that we can give football a bit of a rest!

This is how the kitties and Patty watched the game! The Serpent King was really good...it's about three quirky high school seniors trying to enjoy their last year together...Travis, Lydia and Dill. Travis and Dill have tragic home lives...and are bullied and bothered at school. Lydia tries to hold them together but sometimes their lives are overwhelming. It's sad, too. Sad but good...

This is the book I had such high hopes for...I wanted to love it but...I just did not love it. It was too hard to recall exactly what happened in The Kitchen House and I didn't like going back to that era again...this totally surprised me!
Some new books...from Amazon...NetGalley and Edelweiss!
"Longing to be one of the popular girls in her new town, Kammie Summers has fallen into a well during a (fake) initiation into their club. Now Kammie’s trapped in the dark, counting the hours, waiting to be rescued. (The Girls have gone for help, haven’t they?"
This is a sort of Dystopian YA retelling of Dickens "A Tale Of Two Cities".
This one is a psychological thriller of the best kind! From Amazon...
"The next blockbuster thriller for those who loved The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl...a novel with "an astonishing intensity that drags you in and never—ever—lets you go." (Daily Mail, UK)
This book is by the author of Reconstructing Amelia...I loved that book.
From Amazon..."Critically acclaimed author of The Mourning Hours and The Fragile World, Paula Treick DeBoard returns with a tale of dark secrets, shocking lies and a dangerous obsession that will change one neighborhood forever."

From Amazon..." In the pre-Katrina glow of New Orleans, Amanda Salassi is anxious about chaperoning her daughter’s sixth-grade field trip to the Big Easy during Halloween. And then her worst fears come true. Her daughter’s best friend, Sarah, disappears amid the magic and revelry—gone, without a trace."
This was a nice quiet Monday...we are having soup for dinner! It's called Old Fashioned Vegetable Soup! It's from a blog called Everyday Made Fresh. It was so easy!
Have a lovely Monday!
Patty

  1. I wish I got to read during the Super Bowl! I was at my dad's house with my brother, husband, and my dad's wife. So, no books for me! Looks like you have lots of great books lined up! :)

  2. It's chilly here so that soup looks good. I thought last night's game was pretty dull and wish the season had ended with a better game.

  3. Wow, I haven't heard of any of these books! I did like Reconstructing Amelia, so The Outliers is going on my list. Where did these books come from? Edelweiss? Vine?

    Enjoy....

  4. The Serpent does sound good (and sad). I read while my DH watches sports :)
