Book of the Week: The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah

The Great Alone: A Novel I know three families heading to Alaska for summer cruises this year.   I’m personally a warm weather vacation kind of gal and have never even considered wanting to go to Alaska….until now.  One of my Alaska bound girlfriends (Kristin) texted me last week that while reading this book she kept […]

Book of the Week: One Good Thing

I love Wendy Wax’s Ten Beach Road series and the colorful, delightful women who love the beach as much as I do! Interestingly enough, I’ve been to all of the places that Wendy writes about in these books… which makes it so much fun for me!  Plus, I’m the same age as one of the […]

Book of the Week: The Letter by Kathryn Hughes

My friend Annemarie suggested this book to me.  When I noticed it was listed on Amazon as “the #1 ebook bestseller” I figured it was worth a go.  I literally read this book on the beach in Destin last week in one sitting.   Maybe that’s why my neck hurts this week?  Was it worth the […]

Book of the Week: The Keeper of Lost Things

This is nothing short of a sweet and magical little gem of a book.   The characters are delightful.   My favorite is named Sunshine.  She has Downs Syndrome but declares to everyone that she is a “Dancing Drone”.  Everyone in this book has something lost and found and Anthony, the “keeper of lost things” helps them […]

Book of the Week: God is Able

My friend Sally gave this book to me last November. Thank you sweet Sally. Honestly, people give me books all the time so I have stacks of them to read on the shelves in my home. I typically migrate towards my Kindle library because I can make the font HUGE. However, sometimes I just love […]

Book of the Week: The Pact, A Love Story

You may have noticed that it has been some time since I’ve read a book.  I’ve been in a book withdrawal crisis for a while.  Life has just thrown a lot of time consuming things my way recently and I haven’t made time to read.  I had to remedy this problem ASAP because I feel […]

Book of the Week: Blinded Authority by Chad Boles

Chad Boles is a Brookhaven, GA author who graduated from Auburn University with my husband and me.  He’s a great friend, has coached my kids in football, is a stock broker and an all around great guy!  When he recently told me he wrote a book…. I responded: “You did what?!”  Well – it is […]

Book of the Week: The Shape of Water

Always read the book first.  Yes, that’s one of my mottoes.  Strangely enough, Oscar’s Best Movie of 2017 was a MOVIE and then a BOOK.  What is up with that?   I dug a little and found out why.  Read the explanation here.   I’ve had the book on pre-order for a while and it […]
