A Hand to Hold in Deep Water by Shawn Nocher ~ a Review

by Donna Huber


We are heading into the Dog Days of Summer when it's too hot to do much of anything but read a good book. At first glance, A Hand to Hold in Deep Water by Shawn Nocher isn't your typical summer "beach read". But the lazy, sometimes meandering, unfurling of a story of a woman who must delve into the past to understand her present and move forward with her future is the perfect match for a lazy, late summer day.

The Council of Animals by Nick McDonell ~ a Review

by Donna Huber



At first glance, this wouldn't look like a book I would pick up and you might be thinking the same thing of yourself, but if you want to read a book that makes you think deeply then it is exactly the book you should pick up.

Summer Reading, Movies, and Recipes

by Alison DeLuca


Whew, it's hot. Weather like this makes me want to run a 5K and read Anna Karenina, NOT.  Instead, I need fun, frothy novels for the beach or poolside as we face another humid thunderstorm.

6 Audiobooks for Your Summer Listening Enjoyment

by Donna Huber


My to-do list doesn't seem to be shrinking. Thankfully, I've had a number of audiobooks to listen to while cooking, cleaning, and doing yard work. These books would also be awesome for road trips or for walks on the beach. While I received early print or digital copies of many of these books, I was able to get the audiobooks from the library. For the last two books reviewed, I received advance copies of the audiobooks from the publishers via Netgalley.
