My “Stash” from Pulpwood Queens Girlfriends’ Weekend
As the saying goes, “So many books, so little time…”
I actually got off fairly light at Pulpwood Queens this year, having already read many of the key books (see previous post about those…) Even this photo includes a couple of books I picked up in hard-copy having already listened to them: Calling Me Home by Julie Kibler & Writers Between the Covers by Shannon McKenna Schmidt and Joni Rendon. Some books you just can’t get enough of…
But on to my new selections and what others have to say about them:
“The Lake House is a richly textured novel about love, friendship and second chances that spans generations. Marci Nault’s writing is as uplifting and sparkling as a fresh water lake in summer. Nault is a writer to watch!”
“True stories of the adventurous women who worked on the top-secret Manhattan Project, producing uranium for the first atomic bomb, which helped the U.S. end World War II.”
—O, The Oprah Magazine
“As rumors swirl about political corruption, an NYC judge disappears in 1930 without a trace. Caught in the scandal are his wife and showgirl mistress – plus his dutiful maid, whose detective husband is investigating the case. Inspired by a real-life unsolved mystery, this mesmerizing novel features characters that make a lasting impression.”
“Lucky you! You’re about to succumb to France’s most irresistible writer! At the end of this delicious, tender, funny, heartwarming novel, you’ll feel as if Iris and Josephine are part of your family.”
“What a fun read! The characters of Horseshoe are anything but ordinary. I enjoyed the story-in-novel style of the book, which made reading it move quickly, although I was sad when I finished it. I wanted more! I look forward to reading more of Torgerson’s work in the future.”
—Susan Marquez, Amazon Reviewer
“…King’s latest novel takes inspiration from Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca, keeping the best of the latter’s atmospheric tension without falling into melodramatic cliché…A suspenseful Gothic that gives a nod to its predecessors while still being fresh.”
“When a book enriches your mind, opens your heart, and inspires your spirit, it is a real treasure, and this treasure is just what Gloria Loring offers us in her powerful and uplifting new autobiography. Written with wisdom and depth, and saturated with grace, this remarkable book takes the reader on a journey overflowing with revelation and profound awakening.”
—Dr. Barbara De Angelis, transformational teacher,
#1 New York Times bestselling author of How Did I Get Here?
And last but not least,
“Casey’s vivid writing and dogged research establish her as one of the very best true crime writers in the business.”
What’s up next on my TBR list? I’m thinkin’… The Wife, The Maid, and The Mistress… I love Historical Fiction—and can’t wait to see what Ariel has cooked up for us!
