Sunday Salon: It's Too Cold Outside to Do Anything But Read

Welcome to the Sunday Salon where bloggers share their reading each week. Visit The Sunday Post hosted by The Caffeinated Bookreviewer. 
Also visit It's Monday, What Are You Reading? hosted by Book Date. 

Came home from a short trip to sunny LA and found snow and frigid temps in Ohio and also a few new books to temper the sudden shift from 80-degree LA to 19-degree Ohio.

Remembrance by Meg Cabot, fantasy published February 2, 2016, William Morrow. The 7th in the Mediator novels.
Everything's Relative, contemporary women's fiction by Jenna McCarthy, published February 2, 2016 by Berkley
Keep Calm, political thriller by Mike Binder, published February 2, 2016 by Henry Holt and Co.
The House on Primrose Pond, contemporary fiction by Yona Zeldis McDonough, published February 2, 2016 by NAL
North of Here, contemporary fiction/romance by Laurel Saville, to be released March 1, 2016 by Lake Union Publishing. For a TLC book tour review in March. 

I am currently reading Lisa Lutz's thriller, The Passenger, and enjoying the story of a woman's attempts to change her identity and start a new life away from a troubled past. 


  1. I really enjoyed Meg Cabots princess diaries when I was younger but couldn't get in to her Mediator series. What are your thoughts on them?

    1. This will be my first book in the series. I'll post some thoughts after reading it.....

  2. I don't want to leave the house today either, but hubby bought us tickets to see the documentary Love Between the Covers at the local theater! It's -2 right now, but when we leave for the show it should be about 6 degrees! ugh...

    I have a copy of Remembrance, and it looks like a fun read! I'll be cracking that next week. Great selection of books you're sharing today too! I've had The Passenger on my wish list and am glad you are enjoying it!

    Have a great week!

  3. Looks like some good winter reading! It's snowing in Missouri right now, but they're promising warmer temperatures later this week.

  4. I hope to start reading The Passenger soon! It's waiting...

    I love the look of The House on Primrose Pond...and Everything's Relative. Enjoy!


  5. Quite the temperature difference. Stay warm! Some good books, it looks like. I do like the Mediator series - well, I did. It's been a while since Cabot wrote it. I'm listening to it on audio as a reread before I read Remembrance. I'm happy that she's going to let us know 'what happened after they grew up'. Kind of like she did with the Princess Diaries through Royal Wedding.

  6. It looks like you received a lot of great books to brighten your week. We have snow this am in VA. Stay warm!

  7. It's cold here but not that cold - we're still getting in our walk every day. Stay warm and enjoy your new books!

  8. Yeah, the Midwest is kinda cold right now, isn't it? Good luck staying warm!

  9. I just started Remembrance today. It's fun in that way Meg Cabot's books are. Happy reading!

  10. Nice group of books to come home to. I read one Lisa Lutz book but it was just so-so for me. Looks like she may have turned a little bit more serious since.

  11. Enjoy your reading in your cozy home! You have some new goodies to enjoy.

  12. I read some of the Mediator series years ago and enjoyed them. The weather is great for reading in Minnesota too. Here's my week. Happy reading!

  13. I like the sound of Keep Calm. The Passenger is getting great reviews. Have a great week.

  14. Love the cover on Everything's Relative.

    The House on Primrose Pond is catching my eye.

    I hope you are enjoying your reading week.
