Hoda: How I Survived War Zones, Bad Hair, Cancer, and Kathie Lee, by Hoda Kotb

Hoda Kotb grew up in two cultures—one where summers meant playing at the foot of the ancient
pyramids and another where she had to meet her junior prom date at the local 7-Eleven to spare them both the wrath of her conservative Egyptian parents. She’s traveled the globe for network television, smuggling videotapes in her shoes and stepping along roads riddled with land mines.

She’s weathered the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, and a personal Category 5 as well: divorce and breast cancer in the same year. And if that’s not scary enough, she then began co-hosting the fourth hour of Today with Kathie Lee Gifford. (Oh, c’mon, KLG! That’s funny . . . put down the huge pour of Chardonnay and laugh with us.)

Hoda's memoir is on sale for 99 cents, down from $16.00!

Forest Born, by Shannon Hale

By New York Times bestselling author Shannon Hale:

Ever since her brother Razo introduced her to the trees, Rin has turned to them for peace or reassurance, even direction—that is, until the day they seem to reject her. Rin is sure something is wrong with her, something that is keeping her from feeling at home in the Forest, from trusting herself with anyone at all.


Determined to find a new sense of self, Rin accompanies Razo into the city, where she discovers that a mysterious threat haunts Bayern. She joins with three magical girls—Isi, Enna, and Dasha—as they venture toward the kingdom of Kel . . . where someone wants them dead

Sold on a Monday, by Kristina McMorris

From New York Times bestselling author Kristina McMorris: The sign reading 2 CHILDREN FOR SALE is a last resort. 

It sits on a farmhouse porch in 1931, but could be found anywhere in an era of breadlines, bank runs and broken dreams. For struggling reporter Ellis Reed, the gut-wrenching scene evokes memories of his family’s dark past. He snaps a photograph of the children, not meant for publication. But when it leads to his big break, the consequences are more devastating than he ever imagined.

Inspired by an actual newspaper photograph that stunned the nation, Sold on a Monday is a powerful novel of love, redemption, and the unexpected paths that bring us home.

My Antonia, by Willa Cather

Working in the fields of waving grass and tall corn that dot the Great Plains, Ántonia forges the durable spirit that will carry her through the challenges she faces when she moves to the city.

But only when she returns to the prairie does she recover her strength and regain a sense of purpose in life. In the quiet, probing depth of Willa Cather's art, Ántonia's story becomes a mobbing elegy to those whose persistence and strength helped build the American frontier.

Tuesdays at the Castle, by Jessica Day George

An absolutely delightful book, especially if you read it aloud with your kids, by a New York Times bestseller:

No one ever knows what the castle will do next, and no one - other than Celia, that is - takes time to map out the new additions. But when King and Queen Glower are ambushed and reportedly killed, it's up to Celia with her secret knowledge of the Castle's many twists and turns, to protect their home and save their kingdom.

Missing for almost two years, the castaways are thrust into the spotlight after their rescue, becoming media darlings overnight. But they can’t tell the real story—so they lie.

Roaring Deals: Week of August 13, 2018

A few days ago, I found some awesome deals on books by authors I LOVE. I added them to last week's post, but worried that many readers would miss them. 


Fortunately for everyone, they're still on sale! Emily Bleeker and Kate Moretti are some of the best Women's Fiction writers publishing today. Trust me when I say you'll want their books!

~~~~~


Wreckage and Working Fire by Emily Bleeker

Her next book comes out later this month, so read one these now to see if (rather, THAT) you'd like to read her new one! 

Snag her upcoming release, The Waiting Room, here. (I've already ordered my copy. It releases on August 28th.) 








Wreckage is one of those rare novels where I could not fathom how the author would end the story in a way that I'd be happy with, yet she managed to do just that. It's also the even rarer book that I couldn't put down. As a career author and editor, I regularly read books in tiny snippets of time and easily put books down. Not this one!

Working Fire
 is Bleeker's third book (her second book, When I'm Gone, is on sale for $4.99, and I love it to pieces). 


Working Fire is about the relationship between two sisters and how their past informs the present. One sister is shot during a home invasion . . . and the other is the paramedic called to the scene. 




The Vanishing Year, by Kate Moretti

Zoe Whittaker is living a charmed life: wife of a handsome Wall Street tycoon, a member of Manhattan’s social elite, a perfect Tribeca penthouse in the city, and more.

What no one knows is that five years ago, Zoe’s life was in danger. Back then, Zoe wasn’t Zoe at all. Now her secrets are coming back to haunt her.

As the past and present collide, Zoe must decide who she can trust before she—whoever she is—vanishes completely.

A “dark, twisty, edge-of-your-seat suspense” (Karen Robards)

The Marsh King's Daughter, by Karen Dione

My favorite read this summer! 

This book could be classified as suspense, thriller, family drama, and women's fiction. All of them. Really. Add to that a dose of Finnish culture and a Scandinavian fairy tale (and that's not counting the awards and bestseller status!), and it's a recipe for a book I love.

Torch, by Cheryl Strayed

Remember the memoir Wild and the movie of the same name starring Reese Witherspoon? (Remember Loralai attempting the same hike along the Pacific Crest Trail?) 

This book is by the same author, and it's her first published novel:

"Work hard. Do good. Be incredible!" is the advice Teresa Rae Wood shares with the listeners of her local radio show, Modern Pioneers, and the advice she strives to live by every day. She has fled a bad marriage and rebuilt a life with her two children and their caring stepfather, Bruce. But when they received unexpected news that Teresa, only 38, is dying of cancer, their lives all begin to unravel and drift apart. Strayed's intimate portraits in a time of crisis show the varying truths of grief, forgiveness, and the beautiful terrors of learning how to keep living.

Torch is on sale for $1.99

Summer Sisters, by Judy Blume

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 
From the author many of us grew up reading comes an adult title: 

Decades ago, Vix's world changes forever when Caitlin chooses her as a friend. Dazzling, reckless Caitlin welcomed Vix into the heart of her sprawling, eccentric family, opening doors to a world of unimaginable privilege on Martha’s Vineyard, where they become “summer sisters.”
Years later, Caitlin is getting married, and the early magic of their long, complicated friendship has faded. Caitlin begs Vix to come to her wedding as her maid of honor. Vix agrees to go. She wants to understand what happened during their last shattering summer, and after all these years, she needs to know why her summer sister still has the power to break her heart.


~~~

The War of Art, by Steven Pressfield 

If you've known me long, you've probably heard me gush about this book. I found it thanks to bestie and accountability partner Luisa, and it promptly changed the way I think about writing. I own the paperback as well as the ebook so that if I need a kick in the pants when I'm not in my office, I can read it on my phone. 

This is a great book for anyone struggling with a creative endeavor, which is almost everyone! 

It's on sale for only $1.49. That's a screaming deal!


~~~

The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien

If you've ever felt intimidated at the thought of reading Tolkien, then The Hobbit is for you. It's his shortest and simplest story, and it has far fewer mythological tangents and other things that make the The Lord of the Rings trilogy a bit denser.  This book is essentially a prequel to the trilogy.

Note: If you've fallen in love with the three-film adaptation, know that most of it was made up whole cloth by Peter Jackson. The first film of the three is the closest to the source material. It covers about 75% of the novel. Seriously. 



~~~~

1984, by George Orwell

Another sale on huge classic. This book is one of the first ever in the dystopian genre. In many respects, it defined the genre. 

If you haven't read this one, you really need to, if nothing else than for the sake of cultural literacy. (For example:  many things come from this book that you might not even be aware of, including the concept of the government as "Big Brother.")

It's so well done, and it's both a fascinating and disturbing read. (It also has one of the best first lines ever.)

Rebooting My Brain: How a Freak Aneurysm Reframed My Life, by Maria Ross


Funny, touching and real, this book not only shares an inspirational story of transformation but reveals the surprising effects of brain injury…and explores the question, “How do our brains define who we are?”

This is the true story of what happens when you get yanked out of your life by a crisis―and have to get back on the ride all over again. Maria Ross shares how the relentless pace of her life came to a screeching halt when an undetected brain aneurysm ruptured and nearly killed her. Along her stubborn road back to health, her resulting cognitive and emotional challenges forced her―sometimes kicking and screaming―to reframe her life, her work, and her identity.

With humor and heart, Ross shares what it was like being blind for six weeks, how a TV crime drama and a brain-games website played key roles in her recovery, and why a handmade necklace helped her regain her sense of self.

Grasping at straws, Mattie and Robo follow a phoned-in tip into the dense forest, where they hope to find a trace of the girl and rescue her alive.

Andrew Carnegie's Maid, by Marie Benedict


From the author of The Other Einstein, the mesmerizing tale of what kind of woman could have inspired an American dynasty.

Clara Kelley is not who they think she is. She's not the experienced Irish maid who was hired to work in one of Pittsburgh's grandest households. She's a poor farmer's daughter with nowhere to go and nothing in her pockets. But the other woman with the same name has vanished, and pretending to be her just might get Clara some money to send back home.

If she can keep up the ruse, that is. Serving as a lady's maid in the household of Andrew Carnegie requires skills he doesn't have, answering to an icy mistress who rules her sons and her domain with an iron fist.

On sale for $1.99.
