Weekly Book Update.....October 23, 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.

It's been quite a week. I got lightheaded driving to work this week, so naturally, I assumed it's a brain tumor.  But it wasn't, it was just an ordinary sinus infection.  So I've been taking it easy and reading a lot.

I started Jodi Picoult's new book, Small Great Things, but I put it down about a quarter of the way through.  I just can't take any more of these political conversations.  And once I got to the part where the hospital Risk Manager supposedly told the Neo Nazi dad that he shouldn't sue the hospital because the black nurse was the one who was responsible for his baby's death - I was done. Nowhere, in no universe would that happen.  I may try to pick it back up after the election is over, but right now, I just can't take it.

I haven't added much because I'm determined to get my TBR pile under control, but I was excited to get Elin Hilderbrand's new book!  I've loved this series for the last two years and I can't wait to read the last part of the trilogy.

Winter Storms by Elin Hilderbrand.....Gather under the mistletoe for one last round of caroling with the Quinn family in this heartwarming conclusion to Elin Hilderbrand's bestselling Winter Street Trilogy. 

Some of the stormy weather of the past few seasons seems to have finally lifted for the Quinns. After a year apart, and an ill-fated affair with the Winter Street Inn's old Santa Claus, Mitzi has returned to rule the roost; Patrick is about to be released from prison; Kevin has a successful new business and is finally ready to tie the knot with Isabelle; and best of all, there's hopeful news about Bart, who has been captured by enemy forces in Afghanistan. 

That doesn't mean there aren't a few dark clouds on the horizon. Kelley has recently survived a health scare; Jennifer can't quite shake her addiction to the drugs she used as a crutch while Patrick was in jail; and Ava still can't decide between the two lovers that she's been juggling with limited success. However, if there's one holiday that brings the Quinn family together to give thanks for the good times, it's Christmas. And this year promises to be a celebration unlike any other as the Quinns prepare to host Kevin and Isabelle's wedding at the inn. But as the special day approaches, a historic once-in-a-century blizzard bears down on Nantucket, threatening to keep the Quinns away from the place--and the people--they love most. Before the snow clears, the Quinns will have to survive enough upheavals to send anyone running for the spiked eggnog, in this touching novel that proves that when the holidays roll around, you can always go home again.
