Welcome to another Monday from the Interior, in which we share about the books we received in the mail (or bought), and talk about our bookish week, past and future.
For April, Mailbox Monday is hosted by Cindy’s Love of Books.
Sheila, at Book Journey, brings us What Are You Reading?
No books in the mail this week, but I downloaded two books…one free!
1. The Song Remains the Same (e-book), by Allison Winn Scotch
One of only two survivors of a plane crash, Nell Slattery wakes in the hospital with no memory of the horrific experience-or who she is, or was. Now she must piece together both body and mind, with the help of family and friends, who have their own agendas. She filters through photos, art, music, and stories, hoping something will jog her memory, and soon, in tiny bits and pieces, Nell starts remembering. . . .
It isn’t long before she learns to question the stories presented by her mother, her sister and business partner, and her husband. In the end, she will discover that forgiving betrayals small and large will be the only true path to healing herself-and to finding happiness.
2. Sink or Swim (e-book), by Stacy Juba
Personal trainer Cassidy Novak has gained fame for starring on a hit reality show, but not only does she lose, she discovers she is being stalked. She’s also being shadowed by Zach Gallagher, a hunky photographer assigned to capture her personal moments for the local newspaper. As her former competitors get killed off one by one, Cassidy refuses to play by the stalker’s bizarre rules. When the stalker forces a showdown, Cassidy must play to win.
WHAT ARE YOU READING?
Welcome to another exciting week of bookish thoughts. Isn’t it fun to visit other blogs and find new titles to add to your list?
It’s been raining this week here…and that was good for blogging and reading.
My reading week has been a mix of genres, from a fictional saga beginning in the 1920s to a cozy mystery. In the midst was a memoir that was a disturbing reminder of the sad facts of life…and one I will be thinking about for a long while.
Meanwhile, I’ve been blogging a bit. Aside from the regular memes, I posted a Monday Potpourri: Books, Thoughts, etc. ; Morning After Thoughts — An Excerpt featured a snippet from my WIP Interior Designs.
Over at another site, I wrote Self-Motivation: What Works for You?
Midweek found me meandering along with Hump Day Potpourri: Rainy Day Reading & Rambling Thoughts.
Today I posted over at Story Corner: Fourth Blogoversary Coming — April 21.
