Weekly Book Haul....September 17, 2017

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly book meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews, The Sunday Post is another great site hosted by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  The Sunday Salon is a Facebook page where great readers share what they've read this week and Mailbox Monday is a weekly roundup of the new books people have received.

It's finally cooling down, it's actually becoming enjoyable walking the dogs in the morning, instead of having to do it at 5am in the dark just so we don't disintegrate in the heat.

I've been binge watching You're The Worst on FX.  I'm not sure what made me decide to give it a try since it's currently on it's fourth season, but I've made it through three seasons in a week.  It's pretty raunchy but really funny.  The second season had some really touching episodes dealing with clinical depression and a soldier with PTSD.  It's really well written and the actors are great.  

Someone else said I should try The Strain, but it looks a little too scary for me.  I'm going to give it a try next, see if it's as good as they say.

I didn't add much to my TBR list this week, I've been too busy reading.  I'm nose deep in Pretty, Nasty, Lovely by Rosalind Noonan and it's really good.  

Between You and Me by Allison Winn Scotch.....From New York Times 
bestselling author Allison Winn Scotch comes an honest, touching, and funny exploration of falling in and out of love, told from two perspectives—one rewinding history, one moving it forward—and each with bias and regret.

When their paths first cross, Ben Livingston is a fledgling screenwriter on the brink of success; Tatum Connelly is a struggling actress tending bar in a New York City dive. They fall in love, they marry, they become parents, and they think only of the future. But as the years go by, Tatum’s stardom rises while Ben’s fades. In a marriage that bears the fallout of ambition and fame, Ben and Tatum are at a crossroads. Now all they can do is think back…
A life of passion, joy, tragedy, and loss—once shared—becomes one as shifting and unpredictable as a memory. As the pieces of their past come together, as they explore the ways love can bend and break, Ben and Tatum come to see how it all went wrong—and wonder what they can do now to make it all right.
