Very Small Weekly Bookhaul......May 24, 2015

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer, Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea, Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's ReviewsThe Sunday Salon is a new facebook group I've joined and Monday Mailbox is hosted by Marcia to be Continued.

I'm so excited for a three day weekend!  I spent yesterday doing some spring cleaning and today I'm hoping to float in the pool and read.  It's not as hot as I would like for pool time, it's only going to be a high of 88 today.  For Arizona, that feels like a perfect spring day, but not necessarily a swim day.  First world problems.

My youngest daughter is graduating high school on Thursday!  It feels so surreal.  I've had kids in school for the last 20 years, so it will be weird to not navigate the horrendous drop off line every morning.  How will I get my morning dose of rage without it? LOL

I didn't get anything new from Edelweiss or NetGalley this week.  I'm trying so hard to clear my shelves.  I keep a spreadsheet of everything I've received and what the dates of publish are, and I'm so far behind for May!  There are a ton of great books that come out mid-May, and I need to burn through them this week, I'm already late.

Summer usually means more physical books for me, as I don't want to worry about dropping my Kindle or iPad into the pool.

I did receive another book from Booksparks for the Summer Reading Challenge, and it will be going into the pool with me today.

Eight Hundred Grapes by Laura Dave......There are secrets you share, and secrets you hide…

Growing up on her family’s Sonoma vineyard, Georgia Ford learned some important secrets. The secret number of grapes it takes to make a bottle of wine: eight hundred. The secret ingredient in her mother’s lasagna: chocolate. The secret behind ending a fight: hold hands.

But just a week before her wedding, thirty-year-old Georgia discovers her beloved fiancé has been keeping a secret so explosive, it will change their lives forever.

Georgia does what she’s always done: she returns to the family vineyard, expecting the comfort of her long-married parents, and her brothers, and everything familiar. But it turns out her fiancĂ© is not the only one who’s been keeping secrets…

Bestselling author Laura Dave has been dubbed “a wry observer of modern love” (USA TODAY), a “decadent storyteller” (Marie Claire), and “compulsively readable” (Woman’s Day). Set in the lush backdrop of Sonoma’s wine country, Eight Hundred Grapes is a heartbreaking, funny, and deeply evocative novel about love, marriage, family, wine, and the treacherous terrain in which they all intersect.

I finished the Adam Carrolla audiobook, "Not Taco Bell Material".  I started his earlier book, "In 50 Years, We'll All Be Chicks", but I lost interest quickly, because he was telling the exact same stories.  Literally, the EXACT SAME STORIES.

Now I'm on the prowl for my next audiobook.  Any suggestions? photo signature_zpsc91ef999.png
