Weekly Book Haul.....August 9, 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 seriously cannot believe it's already August.  This summer went by so fast.  I'm seeing lots of Facebook posts about back to school shopping, and soon will come the barrage of kids in their first day of school clothes.  Part of me misses those days, and part of me is happy that I'm not hemorrhaging money at Target and Hollister right now!

I went to grocery shopping at Safeway yesterday and saw this.  

So annoying.  Can't we just enjoy the last few weeks of summer and the first few weeks of back-to-school without having Halloween shoved down our throats?  Maybe it's part of living in Arizona, where it stays hot all the way through Halloween that makes me get so irritated with this.  But man, it makes me rage-y.

I just finished Pretty Baby by Mary Kubica (hope to have the review up tomorrow) and it was sooo good!!  I'm giving away a copy on my blog.  Go to the home page and the entry form is on the right sidebar.  A Nurse and A Book

Added a few good books this week.  And I'm joining a Readathon Challenge called Bout of Books.

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23rd in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 14 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team


Too Close to Home by Susan Lewis......Jenna Moore finally feels that she and
her family are exactly where they should be. Leaving busy London behind, they’ve moved to the beautiful, serene Welsh coast. There Jenna, her husband, Jack, and the couple’s four children have found a little slice of heaven. In the house of their dreams, Jenna and Jack are ramping up for the launch of their new publishing business, and the kids are happier than they’ve ever been, wandering the wild, grassy moors that meet white sand beaches and wide ocean.

But a fissure cracks open. The once open and honest Jack suddenly seems to be keeping secrets, spinning intricate lies. And fifteen-year-old Paige has become withdrawn, isolating herself from her family and her new friends. Frightened of the darkness enveloping her family, Jenna struggles to hold her loved ones together. But a cruel disturbance has insinuated itself into her home, threatening to take away everything she holds dear.


Second Helpings at the Serve You Right Cafe by Tilia Kiebenov Jacobs....What if the world didn’t want you to go straight? Out on parole after
almost ten years in prison, Emet First is repairing his shattered life. He has friends, a job, and his first date in a decade. The young woman, Mercedes Finch, is lovely but wounded. When her deranged brother learns about Emet’s past, he will stop at nothing to destroy him—and suddenly Emet has everything to lose.

Summer by Summer by Heather Burch....When Summer took a job as a
nanny for a couple vacationing in Belize, she imagined it would be a fresh start before starting college in the fall. And while she adores her charge, Josh, she can’t say the same for her employers’ oldest son, Bray. He’s cocky, inconsiderate, and makes her feel she’s a chore he has to put up with. In short, he’s everything she dislikes in a guy.

Bray had a plan for the summer: party, hang out with friends, and forget all the responsibilities waiting for him back home. But every time he’s forced to be around Summer, her dour, serious mood sets him off. Not to mention she has a habit of picking up on what he already knows is wrong with him.
Then the two find themselves on a dive trip gone wrong, stranded on a remote island. As they focus on survival, their differences melt away, and they find being together may be what both needed all along.
