Vicki:

Grand Central: Original Stories of Postwar Love and Reunion by Melanie Benjamin, Jenna Blum, Amanda Hodgkinson, Pam Jenoff, Sarah Jio, Sarah McCoy, Kristina McMorris, Alyson Richman, Erika Robuck, and Karen White @ Diary of an Eccentric and Posting for Now

I love short stories so I can’t wait to read this. Different stories by different authors, all with a setting of Grand Central Station. Sounds really good.

Going Somewhere: A Bicycle Journey Across America by Brian Benson @ BookNAround

I love memoirs, and I love to bike, so when I saw this book was about a man and woman who bike from Wisconsin to the West, I knew I wanted to read it.

The Elephant Whisperer: My Life with the Herd in the African Wild by Lawrence Anthony @ Bookfan

As a nature and animal lover, this book appealed to me: “A heartwarming, exciting, funny, and sometimes sad account of Anthony’s experiences with these huge yet sympathetic creatures. Set against the background of life on an African game reserve, with unforgettable characters and exotic wildlife, it is a delightful book that will appeal to animal lovers and adventurous souls everywhere.”

Space Opera edited by Rich Horton @ Beauty in Ruins

There was a time when most of my fiction reading was science fiction. My reading choices have since expanded, but once in a while I like to read some good old fashion Space Opera along the lines of Star Wars: “Epic interstellar adventure stories told against a limitless cosmos filled with exotic aliens, heroic characters, and incredible settings”.

Serena:

Lick by Kylie Scott @Sam Still Reading

There’s always something interesting about books where one character wakes up in an unthinkable situation, like a woman wakes up in Vegas married to a rock star.  I can just imagine what goes on in this relationship.

The Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlain @Lori’s Reading Corner

In this one, Riley MacPherson has believed that her older sister committed suicide as a teen, but she finds out more than 20 years later evidence to the contrary surfaces. She finds that her sister is alive and living as someone else. How does unraveling this mystery change Riley’s past, present, and future? I want to know!
