Sunday Salon: Christmas Lights Up!

Welcome to the Sunday Salon where bloggers share their reading each week. Visit The Sunday Post hosted by The Caffeinated Bookreviewer. Also visit Mailbox Monday.

Got some multi-colored lights put up on the tree in front. Let the holiday festivities begin!

A few new books to share:
The Great Christmas Knit-Off by Alexandra Brown, published October 13, 2015 by William Morrow
Genre: fiction
Heartbroken after being jilted at the altar, Sybil has been saved from despair by her knitting obsession and now her home is filled to bursting with tea cosies, bobble hats, and jumpers.

Lone Star by Paullina Simons, published November 24, 2015 by William Morrow paperbacks
(T)he unforgettable love story between a college-bound young woman and a traveling troubadour on his way to war—a moving, compelling novel of love lost and found set against the stunning backdrop of Eastern Europe.


The Indifferent Stars Above by Daniel James Brown, published September 22, 2015 by William Morrow
Genre: historical fiction
In April of 1846, twenty-one-year-old Sarah Graves set out west from Illinois with her new husband, her parents, and eight siblings. Seven months later, after joining a party of emigrants led by George Donner, they reached the Sierra Nevada Mountains as the first heavy snows of the season closed the pass ahead of them. In early December, starving and desperate, Sarah and fourteen others set out for California on snowshoes and, over the next thirty-two days, endured almost unfathomable hardships and horrors.
