Meeting Mr. Wrong: The Romantic Misadventures of a Southern Belle by Stephanie Snowe came from Swan for my unbirthday month.
I like quirky, offbeat memoirs so one about a woman who posts an honest, no-holds barred ad on her re-entry into the dating pool totally picqued my interest. I don't know if she's found Mr. Right, but I'm looking forward to going along for the ride.
Breaking the Bank by Yona Zeldis McDonough came from Swan for my unbirthday month.
An ATM that magically dispenses money (without deducting the money from an account), really? How can I get one of these for myself?! Oh yeah, and the book looks cute too.
The Longest Trip Home by John Grogan came from Trish at TLC Book Tours for a tour.
I enjoyed Marley and Me and figured that Grogan's memoir of growing up and coming of age would be touching as well.
Alex and Me by Irene Pepperbergcame from Trish at TLC Book Tours for a tour.
I read about Alex the parrot in the news a couple of years ago I think and thought at the time that it was rather fascinating. Tales of the intelligence found in the animal world do grab my attention, even though my own fur-baby is dumber than a box of rocks.
Spellbinder by Helen Stringer came from the publisher via Shelf Awareness.
I thought this story of a girl who can speak to ghosts, including her own parents, looked cute, not scary, and quite possibly a good read for my tween daughter. Of course, I'll be reading it too because it looks like fun.
