New on the Shelf

I Really Needed This Today by Hoda Kotb.  People around the country wake up every morning with Hoda Kotb, but there is more to her than just a successful morning show personality.  Along with the reporting, honesty, humor and generosity, she has shared the details of her life with her audience in the hopes inspiring others.  Hoda now shares her ideas about life and the daily lessons she lives by.  Reflections on boundaries, how to embrace changes in life, and getting the most out of your relationships.  Gathered together for the first time are more than 250 of Hoda’s favorite quotes, mantras, and reflections along with her thoughts on them and what they mean to her.  Covering the cycle of a year, I Really Needed This Today is a pick-me-up for daily life.

A Book of Bones by John Connolly.  The body of a young woman near a vanished church site in the northeast of England, a girl buried in a Saxon mound in the south, and a human skull hidden in priory ruins to the southeast.  All sacrifices, all a summoning, and all heard by something in the darkness.  The only hope against a coming evil is one man, a hunter and avenger, one who will track his adversary across any terrain and through any conditions.  One man who will defend the world, Charlie Parker fears no evil, but evil will fear him.

Careful What You Wish For by Hallie Ephron.  Making a living as a professional organizer can be difficult at times, especially when your husband cannot pass up the opportunity to bring more ‘stuff’ home.  Emily Harlow helps people declutter their lives while living with a compulsive hoarder who insists he is merely ‘building his collection’.  Emily would love to put her professional experience to work at home, but she lives by the rules she sets for her clients, each person is only allowed to declutter their own belongings.  However, the bigger her husband’s collections grows the further they drift apart.  Hoping for a distraction with her two newest clients, Emily ends up a little too friendly with a young wife whose own husband seems to be a problem as well.  The two lament about their spousal troubles over too much wine, and the next day Emily finds herself in a bigger mess than she has ever faced.
