I am so excited to say that I am this week’s feature!
Show us your TBR pile(s)!
I actually just started a meme, To Be Read Thursday to help get my tbr under control. The meme is only in its third week but have been able to knock two books off my to-read shelf. I still have a long way to go to even make a dent but I’ve shared a sampling below:
- Fallen Skies by Philippa Gregory
- The Forgotten Girls by Sara Blaedel
- The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down by Anne Fadiman
- Couple Mechanics by Nelly Alard
- Broken Sleep by Bruce Bauman

I am outside. Not far from the front door, not yet, but I am out and I am alone.

David agreed with his mother out of habit, and I didn’t challenge her because I knew she was afraid on Felix’s behalf. You can’t argue with fear.
I always gravitate towards scarier books this time of year. Little Face appears to fit the bill based on these two snippets and look forward to diving in.Little Face

It's every mother's nightmare ...
The first time Alice Fancourt goes out after their daughter is born, she leaves the two-week-old infant with her husband, David. When she returns only two hours later, she swears the baby in the crib is not her child. Despite her distress, David is adamant that she is wrong.
The police are called to the scene. Detective Constable Simon Waterhouse is sympathetic, but he doubts Alice's story. His superior, Sergeant Charlie Zailer, thinks that Alice must be suffering from some sort of delusion brought on by postpartum depressions.
With an increasingly hostile and menacing David swearing she must either be mad or lying, how can Alice make the police believe her before it's too late?
