This OR That #Giveaway Week 29 ~ The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson OR How to Walk Away by Katherine Center #HowToWalkAway #TheBookWomanOfTroublesomeCreek


I have sooooo many books! 

The This or That Giveaway! feature that I post every Saturday is a way for me to clear my shelves and to share some of the many books I have. It's a way for me to cull my collection and give someone else the chance to enjoy these treasures.

Good luck and be sure to stop back next week!


The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek
by Kim Michele Richardson
Paperback ~ May 2019

In 1936, tucked deep into the woods of Troublesome Creek, KY, lives blue-skinned 19-year-old Cussy Carter, the last living female of the rare Blue People ancestry.

The lonely young Appalachian woman joins the historical Pack Horse Library Project of Kentucky and becomes a librarian, riding across slippery creek beds and up treacherous mountains on her faithful mule to deliver books and other reading material to the impoverished hill people of Eastern Kentucky.

Along her dangerous route, Cussy, known to the mountain folk as Bluet, confronts those suspicious of her damselfly-blue skin and the government's new book program. She befriends hardscrabble and complex fellow Kentuckians, and is fiercely determined to bring comfort and joy, instill literacy, and give to those who have nothing, a bookly respite, a fleeting retreat to faraway lands.


How to Walk Away
by Katherine Center
ARC ~ May 2018

Margaret Jacobsen has a bright future ahead of her: a fiancé she adores, her dream job, and the promise of a picture-perfect life just around the corner. Then, suddenly, on what should have been one of the happiest days of her life, everything she worked for is taken away in one tumultuous moment.

In the hospital and forced to face the possibility that nothing will ever be the same again, Margaret must figure out how to move forward on her own terms while facing long-held family secrets, devastating heartbreak, and the idea that love might find her in the last place she would ever expect.

  1. My level of scary reading is middle grade, so I've never experienced nightmares from a book or truly been scared.

  2. A book has never scared me this way.

  3. Per Semetary by Stephen King. I guess I wouldn't say it scared me so much as creeped/grossed me out. I'm a huge SK fan but I just couldn't finish that one or watch the movie. No thank you!

  4. "Has a book ever scared you or given you nightmares? What was the book and/or author?" I'm not sure about nightmares, but "Horrorstor" by Grady Hendrix was a fun, exciting horror novel that I very much enjoyed!


Thanks SO much for leaving me a comment! Every single one means a whole lot to me!
