DNF- Trigger warning
Now That You Mention It: A Novel - Kristan Higgins

I stopped reading this book and decline to review it.

 

The rape/assault scene was just too much for me. 

 

Trigger warning for this book. 

 

 

 

I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

Updraft - Fran Wilde
Carnegie's Maid: A Novel - Marie Benedict
On Writing Well: The Classic Guide to Writing Nonfiction - William Knowlton Zinsser
Now That You Mention It: A Novel - Kristan Higgins

Happy Friday everyone!

 

We are expecting some snow tomorrow. Bad weather usually means I get to read all the books.  So I'm looking forward to it. 

 

These are the books I am reading. They are holding my attention, so I am content with my choices. Of note is On Writing Well. I remember reading this book for a writing class YEARS ago and loving it. Reading the first chapters reminded me why. Don't be surprised if you see random quotes from me over the next few days.  

 

I hope everyone enjoys their weekend.  I look forward to reading your reviews.  

 

Happy reading!

I like posting these and then comparing wrap-ups to TBRs at the end of the month. For me, most of the time they are very different.

 

"The best-laid plans of mice and men..."

 

Anywho,  these are some of the books I see on the horizon for this month. It's going to be a busy month, so we will see how I do. 

 

Some highlights:

 

I'm looking forward to Kristin Higgins new book - I always enjoy her chic-lit. And I'm really looking forward to Kinsella's latest, Surprise Me.

 

I am cautiously looking forward to Pride and Prometheus - the Pride and Prejudice/ Frankenstein mashup cuz... well... that sounds absolutely insane in a way that makes me want to read it sooner rather than later.  

 

Passion for Books - essays about books? How can that possibly be bad? 

 

On Writing Well is a re-read from years ago because I want to write better, more gooder, ummm... well. 

 

Happy reading everyone!

If You Only Knew by Kristan Higgins $1.99
If You Only Knew by Kristan Higgins (2015-08-25) - Kristan Higgins;

Letting go of her ex-husband is harder than wedding-dress designer Jenny Tate expected…especially since his new wife wants to be Jenny's new best friend. Needing closure, Jenny trades the Manhattan skyline for her hometown up the Hudson, where she'll start her own business and bask in her sister Rachel's picture-perfect family life…and maybe even find a little romance of her own with Leo, her downstairs neighbor, who's utterly irresistible and annoyingly distant at the same time. 

Rachel's idyllic marriage, however, is imploding after she discovers what looks like her husband's infidelity. She always thought she'd walk away in this situation but now she's wavering, much to Jenny's surprise. Rachel points to their parents' perfect marriage as a shining example of patience and forgiveness; but to protect her sister, Jenny may have to tarnish that memory—and their relationship­—and reveal a family secret she's been keeping since childhood.
