What Is On Your Reading and Gifting List for 2019

There are countless book recommends for 2019 and some even going back a few years. Of course, this is in addition to the classics we have all read for school or otherwise. With that thought in mind, I ask what are you reading these days or are planning to gift someone and why that particular book?

Here’s what I’ve added to my list from a list of 60 recommends

‘What happens when you get exactly the life you wanted and realize you want something completely different? You could run away from home … or you can make like Philpot, who’s been called “the modern-day reincarnation” of authors Nora Ephron and Erma Bombeck, and enact some mini life changes that pay off in major happiness’. – {source}
‘Bestselling author Jennifer Weiner is back with a heartfelt and relatable story of two sisters as they struggle to find themselves. Weiner’s books are reliably excellent, and this one is absolutely no exception. Grab it for a travel read or a palate-cleanser between heavier fare’. – {source}
‘Fans of the long-running Cathy comic strip will love this memoir from its creator. The essays are funny, poignant, and super relatable, especially for moms and those heading into (or out of) middle age’. {source}
‘The author of Commonwealth is back with another suspenseful tale, this time of the bonds that keep us together and hold us back. This novel spans five decades as it tells the story of siblings Danny and Maeve and the Dutch House, an estate that set about the undoing of their entire family and showed them just how much they can withstand’. {source}
‘Told through emails, blog posts and online therapy sessions, this quirky novel about the aftermath of a young woman’s death — and the friends working to make her biggest dream come true — is funny, modern and memorable’. {source}.

Contest and Giveaway

A few of my friends asked, jokingly of course, if I would have any giveaways in the near future. A free book or a bookmark or….

At the time I smiled at the suggestion and it wasn’t until I travelled through England, Scotland and France this past month, promoting my book, that I decided a contest was a good idea.

So, here it is.

For the month of April, if you purchase Piazza Navona in e-book  (online) or paperback (contact me directly for the paperback version) and write a review online for the e-book (on Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, iBookstore and more) or blog, tweet, Facebook about my book, the paperback version, I will give you Part II for free. That would be two books for the price of one.

If you subscribe to my blog, Facebook or Twitter between 21-Mar-2014 to 30-April-2014, I will send you a free bookmark.
