Sunday Post and Giveaway Winners (28)

I've been on a much needed blog spring break and it's been quiet around here except for my review of Karen White's The Night the Lights Went Out. It's like Big Little Lies set in the South. It's one of my favorite books of the year. There's also an excerpt of the book included in my review and I'm giving away a copy of Karen White's Flight Patterns, which is perfect for the summertime and just came out in paperback. 

Guys, I am so excited! It's my favorite time of the year. It's time to start sharing all of my favorite beach reads for the summer of 2017.  This is my jam.  I have a fun summer planned!   The first book featured will be Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen. Are you surprised it's a Sarah Dessen novel? I adore her and she if the queen of summertime reads, after all! 

I will also be sharing my thoughts on Alex & Eliza by Melissa de la Cruz and I'll be hosting a giveaway for a really great book for all of those recent graduates in your life!  It should be a fun week!

  1. I am on the waiting list at the library for The Night the Lights Went Out. Glad to hear you loved it so much! It sounds like a fun book. Lots of beach reads on your list this week! I am curious about Alex & Eliza and Cocoa Beach. I liked Eight Hundred Grapes so I'll probably check out Laura Dave's new one too.

    Hope you have a great week!

    1. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on Night. I think you'll like it. I was meaning to read Eight Hundred Grapes, but never got around to it last year. I look forward to checking out Dave's latest. Thanks for visiting, Christina!

  2. Yay, glad you had a nice break, Christina! Ahhhh, I can't wait to hear how the Afterlife of Holly Chase is! Cynthia Hand does no wrong in my book lol.

    1. Thanks, Becky! I know, right? Cynthia Hand is one of my favorites for sure. Thanks for dropping by.

  3. Ooh Hello Sunshine! I just saw that one yesterday on Amazon, it popped up. I read Eight Hundred grapes and loved it so I can't wait to see what this one is about. Plus a bright summery cover.

    Glad The Night The Lights Went Out was good. Comparing it to BLL is high praise since I loved that book! Enjoy all your summer reads!

    1. I meant to read Eight Hundred Grapes last year, but never got around to it, so I am definitely looking fwd to checking out Sunshine. Good to hear you loved her last novel! Thanks for visiting, Greg!
