Hot Mama, 12 Secrets to a sizzling hot Marriage by Kathi Lipp and Erin Macpherson
(Who couldn't use some extra help in keeping the spark alive in our marriages?! So I HAD to get it! From NetGalley and already released on Sept 1st, 2015! I know! You're laughing at me!!!)

White Walls, A Memoir About Motherhood, Daughterhood and the Mess in Between, A Memoir, by Judy Batalion - This book is about the daughter's mother who is a Hoarder. I'm in a Blog Tour for this book coming up soon!


Kingdom Come, An Elizabeth Harris novel, by Jane Jensen   Releases January 5th - Mystery/Thriller I got at NetGalley


The Christmas Joy Ride by Melody Carlson - Released on Sept 1st - I found this on NetGalley, so I got this for the Read-A-Thon! I KNOW I DID SHOW THIS LAST WEEK but I thought I would show it HERE so I can have it ready for the Read-A-Thon! Besides, HOW CAN YOU RESIST THE COVER OF THIS COVER???? NO ONE!!! Which brings me to another book I will be reading during the Read-A-Thon, too! Here it is:


A Charming Christmas by Tonya Kappes - for the Read-A-Thon!


Christmas on Candy Cane Lane by Sheila Roberts - Blog Tour/Review for Monday, Nov 16th! This will be on Tour during the Read-A-Thon! I'll have to start reading it on Wednesday! This is a full length novel, so I have to start this book first. This already released on October 27th, just about a week ago!


The Hundred Gifts by Jennifer Scott - Review/Blog Tour for Nov 27th! I KNOW I showed this a few weeks ago, but I thought I would list it HERE again so I could keep ALL my Chistmas books together!
I LOVE reading Christmas Books! They are a favorite!!!



Landscape for Murder, A Brynn Bancroft Mystery by Joyce T Strand will be a REVIEW/BLOG TOUR this Wednesday, Nov 11th!
THEN


Books I bought for myself!

The Grownup by Gillian Flynn
I think I'm a nut because I just paid $2.99 for 64 PAGES!!! Yep! That's IT! It's a short story she wrote and Stephen King included it in a book of short stories, but do you think I remembered to write the name of his book down? NO! Where is my head lately??? UGH!!! Oh, well. I got 'this' little novella! Here's what it looks like!

    1. Hi Rebecca!
      Stephen King had that story in a collection of short stories. It was hidden! LOL! Just kidding! They took it out to share it with us! When I saw it at Goodreads, they were highlighting it that entire day! I HAD to grab it! I'll let you know! Thanks for stopping by!
      Thanks!

    1. Hi Sab!
      The Grownup is ONLY $2.99 but only 66 pages long. YIKES! I guess her writing pulls in a PRETTY PENNY! I just wanted to let you know, with all your excitement and such. I don't want you disappointed Heck, I don't even know if this comes in a paper edition or not??? So I just wanted to let you know about that immediately. I paid it because I think you're like me in that I'll 'almost' pay anything to read what she's written! LOL!
      Enjoy it!
