Weekly Book Haul.....March 20, 2016

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.

Another spring week in the books in sunny Arizona.  Allergy season has been horrible here, so it's beautiful out with tons of wildflowers.  Gorgeous to look at, but hell on your sinuses.  And I hate to waste a day outside while it's still less than a 100 degrees.

I've been reading The Cracked Spine by Paige Shelton and it's a great story, but I can't stand the Scottish dialect.  It just makes it hard for me to read. I have promised myself after this, I will never read another book with a different dialect.  This is my second one this year, and it's a pet peeve for me.

I did add a few to the TBR pile, I'm trying to be very choosy because this pile is out of control!

The Wedding Sisters by Jamie Brenner.....Meryl Becker is living a mother's
 dream. The oldest of her three beautiful daughters, Meg, is engaged to a wonderful man from one of the country's most prominent families. Of course, Meryl wants to give Meg the perfect wedding. Who wouldn't? But when her two younger daughters, Amy and Jo, also become engaged to celebrated bachelors, Meryl has to admit that three weddings is more than she and her husband, Hugh, can realistically afford. 

The solution? A triple wedding! At first, it's a tough sell to the girls, and juggling three sets of future in-laws is a logistical nightmare. But when Hugh loses his teaching job, and Meryl's aging mother suddenly moves in with them, a triple wedding is the only way to get all three sisters down the aisle. When the grand plan becomes public, the onslaught of media attention adds to Meryl's mounting pressure. Suddenly, appearances are everything - and she will do whatever it takes to keep the wedding on track as money gets tight, her mother starts acting nutty, and her own thirty year marriage starts to unravel. 
In the weeks leading up to the nuptials, secrets are revealed, passions ignite, and surprising revelations show Meryl and her daughters the true meaning of love, marriage and family. Jamie Brenner's The Wedding Sisters invites readers to the most unpredictable wedding of the year.

Hot Little Hands by Abigail Ulman.....For fans of HBO's Girls, Abigail Ulman's
striking, darkly funny fiction explores the chronic uncertainty, exquisite dangers, and surprising tragedies of young women on the cusp of adulthood.

Evocative and acutely observed, 
Hot Little Hands is at once dignified and self-deprecating, mischievous and disturbingly realistic.
