Weekly Book Haul.....November 26, 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.

November has flown by!  I mean flown!  My daughter had her wedding reception  two weeks ago and I had loads of family and friends here, so I wasn't able to blog as I was busy enjoying the company.  Everyone's departures were a little bit staggered, so the empty house didn't seem so shocking when everyone was gone.  

Now we've had a four day weekend, and I spent a lot of it with others so today really feels like the first normal Sunday I've had for a while. I went hiking this morning, then out to breakfast, now I'm watching the Bears play. Then I'll move onto the Hallmark Christmas movies.  In other words, the perfect winter Sunday (even though it's 82 degrees).

I was pretty excited to get an advanced copy of Kristin Hannah's new book!  I think my favorite book by her was Night Road.  That book was everything.  

And I bought a self-help book so New Years must be right around the corner.

Great Alone by Kristin Hannah.....

Alaska, 1974.
And for a family in crisis, the ultimate test of the human spirit. 
From the author who brought you the phenomenon of The Nightingale.

Live Like You Give a F**K! by Nicola Findley.....Boss a bitch? Diet a hot
mess? Broke after payday? Ghosted on tinder?
If life feels like a constant hangover why not take five f**king minutes for yourself to decide what you really want. Slam on the brakes, kick off your heels and unplug from the social media circus.
Stop Surviving - Start Thriving
Live Like You Give A F**K will show you how to create the future you want, not the one that’s been shoved down your throat. It will shake and wake you from the hypnosis of modern living. The triple shot of empowerment, confidence and motivation will unleash the badass in you.
Nicola Findlay is the straight-talking, bold, coaching diva who isn’t afraid to tell it like it is. If you ask her advice about your lame partner she’ll give you a bitch slap, tell you to raise your standards and get rid of that loser. She’s your best friend, your enemy, your punchbag and your cheerleader. Some people call her a diva, some people call her a badass bitch but whichever you decide you will get results. WARNING: If you’re afraid of a few swear words on a page put this book down and go cry to your Mama. I’m not here to offend anyone.  I’m here to tell you how to rock your world, and because I’m so passionate about it I’ll be shouting and swearing from the rooftops.

The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper by Phaedra Patrick.....In this
poignant and sparkling debut, a lovable widower embarks on a life-changing adventure.
Sixty-nine-year-old Arthur Pepper lives a simple life. He gets out of bed at precisely 7:30 a.m., just as he did when his wife, Miriam, was alive. He dresses in the same gray slacks and mustard sweater vest, waters his fern, Frederica, and heads out to his garden. 

But on the one-year anniversary of Miriam's death, something changes. Sorting through Miriam's possessions, Arthur finds an exquisite gold charm bracelet he's never seen before. What follows is a surprising and unforgettable odyssey that takes Arthur from London to Paris and as far as India in an epic quest to find out the truth about his wife's secret life before they met--a journey that leads him to find hope, healing and self-discovery in the most unexpected places. 

Featuring an unforgettable cast of characters with big hearts and irresistible flaws, The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper is a curiously charming debut and a joyous celebration of life's infinite possibilities.
