AND there are some great books on sale this weekend – here are my faves!
Book Deals for the End of August
The Magnolia Story by Chip Gaines, Joanna Gaines, and Mark Dagostino – audiobook
I’m not a huge Fixer Upper watcher (I’ve seen maybe 4 episodes), but Chip and Joanna are just so delightful. This one was a quick, fun read.
Have I Told You This Already?: Stories I Don’t Want to Forget to Remember by Lauren Graham – audiobook
I loved her memoir Talking as Fast as I Can, (huge Gilmore Girls fan back in the day) and this one is equally delightful. The audiobook is for sure the way to go since she reads it herself.
The Kitchen Front by Jennifer Ryan – audiobook
I really enjoyed this one, set in England during World War II. The BBC is looking for a new female host of their radio cooking show (a show meant to help women make decent meals during the strict food rationing brought on by the war), and four different women are determined to win the spot, each for different reasons.
Nora Goes Off Scriptby Annabel Monaghan – audiobook
Evvie Drake Starts Overby Linda Holmes – audiobook
This is such a fun, delightful romantic comedy (with a little bit of heaviness). Evvie has just lost her husband, and Dean Tenney is a World Series winning pitcher who suddenly can’t pitch anymore. When he escapes the endless news about his fall from grace, he ends up renting the apartment in Evvie’s too-big-for-her house and the two strike up friendship, based on the agreement that he won’t ask about her late husband and she won’t ask him about baseball.
