My Book Haul 3/5/2016

Cold Between, Well Path, Little Is Left To Tell, Orchids and Stone, Diary of Anna the Girl Witch

In need of a new way to showcase titles, I decided that My Book Haul seems like a good fit. I like giving books a little special attention as sometimes it can be awhile before I'm able to review them. Sad to say, but some get put on the shelf and gather a little dust before I'm able to give them the love they deserve. I've included links to Goodreads if you want more information.

For Review:

This was a surprise in my mailbox. I love book surprises!

Cold Between by Elizabeth Bonesteel
Cold Between by Elizabeth Bonesteel

When her crewmate Danny is murdered on the colony of Volhynia, Central Corps engineer Commander Elena Shaw is shocked to learn the main suspect is her lover, Treiko Zajec. She knows Trey is innocent - he was with her when Danny was killed. So who is the real killer and why are the cops framing an innocent man?

As we get older, we start to wonder about the aging process and if there's any way to turn back the clock. My preferences lean more towards actual lifestyle changes more than diets, so this one sounds intriguing.


The Well Path by Jame Heskett

Lose twenty pounds and reverse the aging process in just sixty days with this clinically proven, holistic lifestyle plan from an anti-aging expert whose clients include some of New York City’s most successful women.

I seem to be drawn to the odd and quirky. This collection of short stories sounds very odd and quirky. I can't wait to read it!


Little is Left to Tell by Steven Hendricks
Little is Left to Tell by Steven Hendricks

Readers enter a narrative rabbit hole through bedtime stories that Mr. Fin, a man with dementia, conjures for his long-lost son.

Purchased:

This was my Kindle First choice this month. Because I'm an Amazon Prime member, I can download one new title at the start of every month. I've skipped some months because none of the selections appealed to me, but this one sounded good and I liked the excerpt!

Orchids and Stone by Lisa Preston
Orchids and Stone by Lisa Preston

Daphne Mayfield sought a moment of quiet in a park - a break from city life, a tense relationship, and chronic overwork - but then an elderly woman makes a desperate plea. Daphne is reluctant to get involved when she’s not sure what’s happening, but she wants to help the stranger. Is the rambling old lady the victim of a crime or a victim of dementia?

NetGalley:

I really need a NetGalley intervention or something! NetGalley, I wish I knew how to quit you. *sigh*
