This week, I have added a total of 2 books to my shelf and both are hard copy’s that the mailman brought. One was sent to me through Bookbridgr and the other one I won through a MaximumPopBooks giveaway!
‘This Raging Light’ by Estelle Laure
This is the book I won through the MaximumPopBooks giveaway and I am really excited to read it. I heard a lot of good things about it!
Blurb: How is it that one day Digby was my best friend’s cute twin brother, and then the next he stole air, gave jitters, twisted my insides up?
And with Mom gone, bills to pay and Wren to look after… Why does the best thing happen at the worst time?

‘Bettyville’ by George Hodgman
I saw this on Bookbridgr and loved the sound of it so I requested it. Really happy that my request was approved and it landed on my doorstep!
Blurb: When George Hodgman leaves Manhattan for his hometown of Paris, Missouri, he finds himself—an unlikely caretaker and near-lethal cook—in a head-on collision with his aging mother, Betty, a woman of wit and will. Will George lure her into assisted living? When hell freezes over. He can’t bring himself to force her from the home both treasure—the place where his father’s voice lingers, the scene of shared jokes, skirmishes, and, behind the dusty antiques, a rarely acknowledged conflict: Betty, who speaks her mind but cannot quite reveal her heart, has never really accepted the fact that her son is gay.
As these two unforgettable characters try to bring their different worlds together, Hodgman reveals the challenges of Betty’s life and his own struggle for self-respect, moving readers from their small town—crumbling but still colorful—to the star-studded corridors of Vanity Fair. Evocative of The End of Your Life Book Club and The Tender Bar, Hodgman’s New York Times bestselling debut is both an indelible portrait of a family and an exquisitely told tale of a prodigal son’s return.
