Booksie's Shelves, August 22, 2019

I don't know about where you are, but here in North Carolina it is hot, hot, hot.  With high humidity and temperatures in the high nineties, all you can do is hunker down and wait for a cool front to come and make things better.  Since house time equals lots of reading time, I'm ok with it. We decided to replace our thirteen year old refrigerator this week so the new one is bigger but its taking me a while to adjust to it.   My chrysanthemum has come back and is blooming merrily and I'm thinking about putting my fall wreath on the front door to try to hasten things along.  Regardless of weather, the books keep rolling in.  Here's what's made it through the door (i.e., physical copies instead of the daily onslaught of ebooks):

1.  The Voluptuous Delights Of Peanut Butter And Jam, Lauren Liebenberg, literary fiction, bought
2.  Monster Love, Carol Topolsi, literary fiction, purchased
3.  Hope Farm, Peggy Frew, literary fiction, gift
4.  Love And Death In The Sunshine State, Cutter Wood, true crime, gift
5.  The Room Of Lost Things, Stella Duffy, literary fiction, purchased
6.  Sorry, Gail Jones, literary fiction, purchased

13.  Pat Conroy, Our Lifelong Friendship, Bernie Schein, memoir, won in contest
14.  Th1rt3en, Steve Cavanagh, thriller, sent by publisher

Here's what I'm reading:

4.  Hush, Laura Lippman, paperback
