I have SO MUCH to talk about, I KNOW I am not going to be able to get it ALL in in one post, so as we go along, I'll let you know! 2016
We are all back from the holidays, and I hope you had a wonderful time! I sure did! I feel SO blessed because of my children! They ARE an amazing gift, aren't they! Mine sure are! Except . . . my son has a tendency to call me at MIDNIGHT asking if he and his girlfriend can spend the night? WHAT??? RIGHT WHEN I was in the middle of writing THIS post, and since it was already late, next thing was hopping in the shower, (I LOVE my showers before I go to sleep!) drying my hair so I didn't freeze to death! Then, BED!!! Ahhhh, sweet dreams!
However, that was BLOWN! Which is also why THIS POST is SO late! My son BLEW IT for me! No shower for Mom! Heck, NO SLEEP for Mom!!! (Oh, yes! HE DID get sleep!!! Grrrrrrr!) Long story, he and his father got into an argument and he did not want to go back to his house even to get his vehicle. UGH! I said, "Okay, but just this ONCE!!!" Next thing I know is I get two 18 yr olds piling into the house at almost 1:00am now! BLOW this article out of the way! No! If it's late, I'm STILL doing it!!! This took me two days, but I did it!!!
Wow! I just realized the last time this post was up was the Sunday before Christmas, which was a while ago, now! Needless to say, I have a LOT of books to show you since we last were together! I'm going to hit the books NOW because it feels like it's been FOREVER ago!!! I'm only going to show 4 this week, given I'm SO late I don't know if many of you will even see this or not? Next week I'll put THIS LINK in next week's post so everyone will know to come look HERE! Sounds great to me!
Here are the books I got while it was during Christmas break!

Ah! This GEM of a story this author got to write about would have been AMAZING!!! She chose an amazing actress who saw a LOT in her lifetime! Black and white, then color cinema! This was also one of my Grandmother's favorite actresses! What's this about? Oh! Here you go! Just a smidgen!
Set against the dazzling backdrop of Golden Age Hollywood, novelist Anne Girard tells the enchanting story of Jean Harlow, one of the most iconic stars in the history of film!
This takes book takes place during in the roaring 20's, and I've ALWAYS been in love with that era! I can't wait to read this book! I LOVE the 20's, and as each Halloween came up, I always dressed up as a flapper girl! There is just something about those dresses! I used to make them myself, too! They were a FUN so much FUN to sew!!!)
"A fascinating, page-turning, behind-the-scenes look at what it took to be a celebrity in early Hollywood." - Lynn Cullen, bestselling author of Mrs. Poe and Twain's End
I will be asking the publisher if there is a possibility of a giveaway, perhaps! Keep your fingers crossed!
The Hole in the Middle by Kate Hilton - Released Jan 5th
I 'just' received this book THIS week! Sounds really good! Something about a Mom, the PTA and having it all! I'll let you know more in the review! I have not started it just yet because I literally JUST got it. The cover is VERY whimsical! VERY FUN! Looks like a LOT of fun!!!
Give Us This Day, A Brooke Burrell Thriller, by Tom Avitabile
and, have I shown this one, yet?
The Unyielding Future by Brian O'Grady
The photo of this book is NOT showing UP on Goodreads yet? I have NO CLUE as to why? I'll be contacting the publisher to let them know, and maybe I'll learn more to let you know why, too!
This publisher is AMAZING! They are called The Story Plant. Check them out when you have a chance! They are an independent publisher and they publish a LOT of independent authors, and their authors are EXCELLENT! One of the BEST they have is Michael Baron. His one book, Anything, always stands out in my mind! It is one AMAZING story! That book got me into liking a little time travel! The love the main character portrayed, ahhhhh! I HIGHLY recommend that book! They have published several of his books, and they are stories you do NOT forget!
The last two books you see here, they have published! I don't even need to question if they would be good or not because I can depend on them that they will be true EXCELLENCE!
There are more books at their website. Enjoy!!!
I will see you tomorrow!
