Sunday Salon: I'd Rather Read than.....

I have decided to stop watching too much political news so I don't find myself rolling my eyes and generally acting like a teen. To control myself, I will stay with reading good books and watching Christmas movies on TV.

Here are two new arrivals I'm reading right now: contemporary fiction and a mystery.

Love, Alice

Love, Alice by Barbara Davis, December 6, 2016, Berkley
... new Southern women’s fiction novel set in Charleston, about forgiving the past one letter at a time...

Egg Drop Dead (Crackleberry Club, #7)

Egg Drop Dead by Laura Childs, the 7th in the mystery series, December 6, 2016, Berkley
Suzanne, Petra, and Toni—co-owners of the Cackleberry Club CafĂ©—track down the culprit in another whodunit.

  1. I've been eyeing Love, Alice...and now I'm also intrigued by a cozy set in the Cackleberry Club Cafe!

    I love your solution to the political drama...it does beat screaming at the TV when the numbers went the wrong way...sigh.

    Enjoy your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    1. A good contemporary fiction/women's fiction book is a good break from other genres sometimes.

  8. I have Egg Drop Dead and am looking forward to it. I haven't read much of the series but have enjoyed other books by Laura Childs. Love Alice looks intriguing too. I've been avoiding political news as much as possible too. It's just better that way!

  9. I finally stopped watching/reading the news two days after the election. It is just too much for me right now.
