Weekly Book Haul.....August 7, 2016

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.

The world calmed down this week, so I was able to finish three books - yay, me!

I only added one new book because I've got so much on my TBR pile, it's getting gross.  Once it hits a certain level, I get antsy.  But then I see something that I just have to have......

My contact at Booksparks has moved to San Francisco, so I'm not sure if they are just in transition with a new person, or if I somehow dropped off the list, but I haven't gotten my August Summer Reading Challenge box.  I was pretty bummed, but then I realized that I've got plenty on my Kindle just waiting for my attention.

I got a nice credit from Barnes and Noble from the big ebook lawsuit - that seems so long ago.  But I kept hoarding it until I got an email that said use it or lose it.  So I bought Truly Madly Guilty by Liane MoriartyThe Light Between Oceans by M.L. StedmanTricky Twenty Two by Janet Ivanovich, and Night Shift by Charlaine Harris.  An eclectic group of books for sure, but I'll still be excited to get them.  Since I got these books with a credit that I didn't do much to earn, I got all hardbacks so I can give them away when I'm done.

If you are ever looking for a great place to give your books away too - I would of course always recommend your local nursing homes or assisted living facilities, but also consider your local hospital rehab units or high risk Obstetrical units, where many moms are on bedrest for months.

I know everyone was raving about The Light Between Oceans, but I never got on that bandwagon.  Then I saw the trailer for the movie and I was intrigued.

All the Little Liars by Charlaine Harris......Aurora Teagarden is basking in the news of her pregnancy when disaster strikes her small Georgia town: four kids vanish from the school soccer field in an afternoon. Aurora’s 15-year-old brother Phillip is one of them. Also gone are two of his friends, and an 11-year-old girl who was just hoping to get a ride home from soccer practice. And then there’s an even worse discovery—at the kids’ last known destination, a dead body.
While the local police and sheriff’s department comb the county for the missing kids and interview everyone even remotely involved, Aurora and her new husband, true crime writer Robin Crusoe, begin their own investigation. Could the death and kidnappings have anything to do with a group of bullies at the middle school? Is Phillip’s disappearance related to Aurora’s father’s gambling debts? Or is Phillip himself, new to town and an unknown quantity, responsible for taking the other children? But regardless of the reason, as the days go by, the most important questions remain. Are the kids still alive? Who could be concealing them? Where could they be?
With Christmas approaching, Aurora is determined to find her brother…if he’s still alive. 
After more than a decade, #1 New York Times bestseller Charlaine Harris finally returns to her fan-favorite Aurora Teagarden series with All the Little Liars, a fabulously fun new mystery.
