Happy January


It seems like it has been January for an extra long time. The weather is wreaking havoc on everyone's plans and we too, are very much over this month. The good news is that it has been a great month for new releases.

Some January New Releases that you should know about:

Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother's Will to Survive by Stephanie Land

I started listening to this on Libro.fm and it is so honest and truthful I was getting flashbacks of my early single parenting years. This is honest look at a service industry that does not get enough credit. It is also an unflinching look at the working poor and how hard it can be to get a hand up.



No Exit: A Novel by Taylor Adams

This was a thrill ride of a story that did not disappoint! I was afraid to see what would happen next. When the criminals are three steps ahead of you and you have no place to go, this is what happens. This was an intense read that had me hooked to the very end! Fox just bought the right to make this a movie.




The Current: A Novel by Tim Johnston

*we have a limited number of signed copies in stock*

The Current is a tense, atmospheric read. I loved the slow burn of this thriller. Once I sorted out who was who I enjoyed this third person narrative of similar tragedies, years apart, in a small Iowa town.



Always Hungry?: Conquer Cravings, Retrain Your Fat Cells, and Lose Weight Permanently by David Ludwig (paperback)Always Hungry?: Conquer Cravings, Retrain Your Fat Cells, and Lose Weight Permanently Cover Image

Aways Hungry? is a no-nonsense look at why we gain weight, the misconceptions we've been taught about "healthy eating", and how to change you diet without cravings without making you feel as if what you're doing is dieting.
