Fiction, Non-Fiction and Illustrated

3 Recent Releases

Good morning. It’s Saturday and I just had an idea!!!! Aren’t you excited? Well, I didn’t have an idea because it’s Saturday, but you know what I mean. I thought it would fun to list 3 different releases from different genres every weekend. I can’t think of a good name for the series so I’m just going to list the genres I choose as the title. If you can think of something better, please, feel free to shout it out in the comments.

So, since my coffee is getting cold and eventually I will have to start my day — which does include a trip to the local book store for some Christmas Presents — I will start the list and stop wasting your time. That’s what you’re here for right?

Hurrah for Gin: A Book for Perfectly Imperfect Parents

By: Katie Kirby

Love the stick figures and the fact that she makes it a point to remind you that this is not a “how-to” guide. This a satire book filled with real life and real people (stick people) funny moments of parenthood. I think it makes the perfect gift for a good friend or relative who is feeling stressed out this holiday season (that would be all of us).

Amazon: Paperback ($10.39); Hardcover ($17.48); Kindle ($4.99)

The Keeper of Lost Things

By: Ruth Hogan

What drew me to this book was the cover. This is a beautiful cover and although I know that you should never judge a book by it’s cover….. Can you blame me? Ok, so I came for the cover and stayed for the story. This is a debut novel by this author and it tells th story of possibilities, discoveries, promises that are made and/or broken and things that give meaning to our lives…. I can’t wait to pick this one up…. perhaps on my trip to the bookstore this afternoon.

Amazon: Paperback ($10.99); Hardover ($14.55); Kindle ($10.99); Audio ($17.56)

Principles

By: Ray Dalio

So I’m listening to this one on audible. I find that non-fiction lends itself better to audio books because I keeps my attention. This is part memoir and part guide on how his set of principles guided his every move. I won’t say too much as I am still just starting listening to this book but I am sure a review will be coming soon.

This is the story of another 50+ year old woman who just realized that the life she worked so hard to build is no longer what she wants..... why am I speaking about myself in the third person? Odd!!! Come join me as I try to figure out my next move. Ana
