A Gift for You

Perhaps today will find you still in the throes of celebrating your holiday season or perhaps today will find you savoring a window of downtime.  Whatever your situation, I’m sending sincere wishes for special days and a wonderful year in 2018.

My gift to you is a sprinkling of titles that I’ve enjoyed throughout the year. Instead of book suggestions for the kids, here are some titles you can sink your teeth into now and beyond the holiday season. Hope you find something that will appeal to your appetite, provide a respite from the busy days and convince you that time spent with a good book is a valuable way to nurture your mind and soul, as well as serving as a model for the little people who have their eyes on you. Enjoy!

Books by Lisa Scottoline:  Every Fifteen Minutes, Damaged, What She Knew

    Hi Rita, I hope your Christmas celebrations with your family were just WONDERFUL! I amso happy you posted this adult list. I am not in a book club so I don’t have access to other adult suggestions except at the library. I love getting titles by “word of mouth” .Thanks and I am going to dig into these. Hope to see you at critique in 2018. 🙂

      Karen, hope you enjoy some of these. I, too, seem to enjoy the best books when they are personally recommended. It’s been an enjoyable holiday and I’m sure you are having a blast with family and friends. Happy New Year!
