The #NYTimes Top 15 (20) #Bestsellers for the week ending May 17 2015 plus blog updates!

Welcome! It's been another great weeks of books and reading! Let's see what books made the bestseller list this week! This post is always up by NOON every Sunday and most of the time earlier!

Wow! What a week for books! I got a few books from publishers this week, and I am DYING to read them! Both of these are due out for release on June 2nd! The first is The Appetite of Girls by Pamela Moses about girls/women and our self image hang-ups. Yes! I DO have self image hang-ups! I always think I look FAT no matter how thin or when I do have those extra pounds on me. I think ALL of us women have this issue, and even though this book is fiction, it DOES HIT HOME! I believe this book will truly be sought after! Here's a sneak peek! RELEASING JUNE 2ND, 2015!

and the second, which I'm DYING to read, too, is Eeeny Meeny by M J Arlidge

Yes! #EenyMeeny is a hashtag! Look it up now! This is an amazing thriller of a book. Two people are abducted. You are in the bottom of a swimming pool with NO WAY OUT! There is one cell phone and one gun at the bottom of that pool. You get a phone call. The called tells you there is ONE way out. Someone has to kill the other one. There is only enough battery left on that phone for that phone called and then it goes dead. Are YOU going to kill the person you are with so you can go free, or are YOU going to offer to be killed? It's you or your husband, which is it going to be? WOW, huh!!! This is just the first chapter! A 395 page book with this author's NEW book's first 3 chapters in the back, for Pop Goes the Weasel by M J Arlidge - same author! These are the first and the second books in the NEW Helen Grace series! #EenyMeeny is this author's debut thriller/crime police procedural! RELEASING JUNE 2ND!

I've also received Dear Carolina by Kristy Woodson Harvey

and Recipe for Disaster by Stacey Ballis

I have a review to write for House Broken by Sonja Yoerg but muscle spasms got me earlier this week after writing a few reviews, so I have to get rid of these things so I can write again!

I also have The Bishop's Wife by Mette Ivie Harrison!


The Last Bookaneer by Matthew Pearl

The Children's Crusade by Ann Packer

The Dress Shop of Dreams by Menna van Praag

and MORE! Keep watching for MORE reviews coming ASAP!

Ruin Falls by Jenny Milchman - To be read after the June 2nd new releases!

Thanks AGAIN for stopping by this weekend! I LOVE it when you do! Grab the ebooks at the amazing low prices while they are on the bestseller list before the prices go up (not the $12.99 ones! I REFUSE to pay that price, and am still staying below $10 for an ebook. I said that several years ago, and I stand by it, still. WHY publishers are upping the prices so high is for one, that settlement they reached for three years did time out, so now they think they can price their ebooks at whatever price they would like. I recently got the opportunity to read a book I could ONLY get in print after reading so MANY ebooks, and I'll admit, it was such a PLEASANT CHANGE TO READ A PRINT BOOK! I'VE MISSED IT WITHOUT KNOWING IT! Thanks to those publishers that provided the print copies for me! I'll admit, I buy a LOT of books, ebooks, mostly, but rarely get to read what "I" want to read, which is okay with me because eventually I'll get to what I want to read and the BEST part about blogging about books is getting the New Releases ahead of time and being able to blog about them on or near their release dates! That happens to be on my favorite things about blogging about books! They are generally in ebook format, but lately the LOVELY PUBLISHERS have been sending out more print books than ever before, and I am LOVING it! This is how I realized I am MISSING reading print books as much as I love ebooks! I guess both versions are the BEST of both worlds, really! Try a print book again! Don't forget what you may be missing and don't even know it! Have a GREAT week! Here are the rest!!

EVERY FIFTEEN MINUTES, by Lisa Scottoline (St. Martin's)
