Books...

Finished...

Whew! This book was intense, maddening, fast paced and totally absorbing. It's told during the timespan of one day where the two main characters...Tom and Helen...make the worst choices I have ever seen a fictional couple make...but again...it was sooooo good! And the cover really is their neighborhood!

Reading right now...

Just a few of this week's new books...from Edelweiss and NetGalley and Vine...

From Amazon...

Set at the end of World War II, in a crumbling Bavarian castle that once played host to all of German high society, a powerful and propulsive story of three widows whose lives and fates become intertwined—an affecting, shocking, and ultimately redemptive novel from the author of the New York Times Notable Book The Hazards of Good Breeding.

From Amazon...

Anna's always idolized her older sister, Storm. So when Storm dies in a tragic car accident on the night of her high school graduation, Anna is completely lost and her family is torn apart. That is, until she finds Storm's summer bucket list and decides to honor her sister by having the best summer ever--which includes taking an epic road trip to the coast from her sleepy Iowa town. Setting out to do everything on Storm's list along with her sisters best friend Cameron--the boy next door--who knew that Storm's dream summer would eventually lead to Anna's own self-discovery?

From Amazon...
Jenny Offill meets Maria Semple in an inventive and moving coming-of-age novel that captures the pain of fractured family life, the heat of new love, and the particular magic of the female friendship--while interrogating the complexities of daughter-mother love.
From Amazon...

New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan’s romantic, sweeping fantasy Reign of Shadows continues in this suspenseful sequel, Rise of Fire.

From Amazon...

A sighting of a woman who supposedly died years ago sparks a desperate search for the truth in this breakout suspense thriller, perfect for readers of The Good Girl and The Widow.

I have covered four genres this week...YA, Fantasy, Suspense, Fiction...Historical Fiction!

Yea, me!

Have a great Monday!

Hugs,

Patty

  1. I love it when fictional characters make bad decisions so I've added Small Hours to my wish list. Motherest looks really good too.

    1. Why do we love books like this so much? It's why I loved The Trophy Child. Motherest looked good to me, too...
