Newish Releases: 9/25
With the holidays right around the corner, the new releases are pretty Christmas heavy. Which I am going to completely ignore because we're roughly three days into fall. Fall is my favorite and I won't disrespect it by talking about Christmas.
So, non-Christmas new release fiction:
Assault and Beadery by Mollie Cox Bryan
Okay, I have a soft spot for these types of mysteries. Who doesn't love a good craft-related yarn? Ha. Cora's dreams of owning a successful craft retreat business are coming true. When the cranky director of the local theatre is murdered, Cora has to help prove her friend's innocence and, I assume, rearrange the itinerary of her first ever Mom's Craft Weekend party.
Like I said, I love a good mystery. And I love crafting. Why not combine the two?
Whiskey in a Teacup by Reese Witherspoon
I love everything Reese Witherspoon. I think she's a doll. Her newest memoir explores what growing up in the south has taught her about "life, love, and baking biscuits." As someone who has actually had whiskey out of a teacup, I'm looking forward to reading this one...next year. My TBR for the remainder of 2018 is set and I'm not changing. Hahahahaha. The lies we tell ourselves.
What's Jimmy Pat up to?
Well, everyone is still losing their minds over The President is Missing. He's also released a western since then that's also getting some attention. And he has a new book coming out next week. How on earth does he do it? No really, how? I'd like to get in on that Jimmy Pat gig.
Our Pick of the Week:
Lethal White. It's all I can think about. I'm about two hundred pages in and it's, of course, fantastic. I did find a mistake, but I'm willing to let it go. Well, sort of, Ciara Porter is mistakenly referred to as Ciara Parker. Okay, now I can let it go. Lethal White is considerably longer than the rest of the series so it's a bit of slow build to the mystery. Despite that, it's been engaging since the first word. Literally the first word.
