Fiction ~ The Glister by John Burnside

Fiction ~ Blonde Roots by Bernardine Evaristo

Historical fiction ~ The King’s Daughter: A Novel of the First Tudor Queen by Sandra Worth

Women’s fiction ~ Fifty Is Not a Four-Letter Word by Linda Kelsey

Women’s fiction ~ Jack with a Twist by Brenda Janowitz

Fiction ~ Divorcing Dwayne by J.L. Miles

Memoir ~ I Choose to Be Happy: A School Shooting Survivor’s Triumph Over Tragedy by Missy Jenkins, William Croyle and Sarah Brady

**********

Side note: Over at Up For Grabs I’m giving away a signed copy of Shades of Gray: A Novel of the Civil War in Virginia by Jessica James. Ms. James has written a very interesting guest post giving us, the readers, insight into the background of this wonderful historical novel.
