True Tuesday Showcase: Killing Kennedy by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard

Next Friday, November 22, 2013, marks the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. It was a defining moment in our nation’s history and a day that will be much discussed over the next two weeks on television, in newspapers and across dinner tables everywhere.

Killing Kennedy, by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard, has spent a lot of time since its release last year on the New York Times Bestseller List and it is this week’s True Tuesday Showcase.

Book Review: Differential Equations by Julian Iragorri & Lou Aronica

Book Review: Differential Equations by Julian Iragorri & Lou Aronica

I usually find it difficult to read books that toggle between different times and places, but Iragorri and Aronica made this difference seamless and easy to follow.

Differential Equations tells the tale of four seemingly unrelated people connected only by their geographical locations. Each character was interesting and could easily warrant a book unto themselves.

I have never read magic realism before, but found that it made me think of my own history – the rumors and tales that get passed down that we too often lend little credence to…

Review + Giveaway: What to Expect When You’re Expecting

A few weeks ago, the What To Expect team sent me a copy of the What to Expect Series of books: What to Expect When You’re Expecting, What to Expect the First Year and What to Expect the Second Year by Heidi Murkoff and Sharon Mazel. In addition to sending me copies of the books to review, they also generously offered two printed sets of books for me to giveaway to two lucky readers!

Why I Love New Release Tuesdays

Why I Love New Release Tuesdays

What is your all-time favorite book?

By now you all know that I adore Tuesdays, it really is my favorite day of the week! Each Sunday afternoon, as I pre-load new releases to the website, I browse through the new titles, read the book descriptions and get so excited about what’s coming on Tuesday- it’s like whole new worlds of adventure await. I can’t wait each week to share these new adventures with all of you!

And while all those new stories are exciting, sometimes you come across an old favorite in the new releases list that just makes you smile. Maybe it’s updated with a new cover, a new introduction by the author or has a sneak peek of the author’s next book, but whatever has been added, the original story that first captured your heart doesn’t change at all.
