This OR That #Giveaway № 105 ~ Incendiary Girls by Kodi Scheer OR I Know You're There by Susan Allison-Dean #IncendiaryGirls #IKnowYoureThere


I have sooooo many books!

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

Good luck and be sure to stop back next week!

I was in Tennessee for 9 days visiting my son and his family and just got back late Thursday night. They have three kids so this grandma was busy! While away, I took a break from reading and posting here. I didn't even take my laptop with me. So that's why there was no This Or That post last Saturday. Did you miss me? 

I'll be drawing winners for all of my giveaways later today. 


Incendiary Girls
by Kodi Scheer
Paperback ~ Published April 2014

Incendiary Girls explores our baser instincts with vivid imagination and humor. In these stories, our bodies become strange and unfamiliar terrain, a medium for transformation.

In “Fundamental Laws of Nature,” a doctor considers her legacy, both good and bad, when she discovers that her mother has been reincarnated as a thoroughbred mare. In the title story, a mischievous angel chronicles the remarkable life of a girl just beyond death’s reach. In Scheer’s hands, empathy and attachment are illuminated by the absurdity of life. When our bodies betray us, when we begin to feel our minds slip, how much can we embrace without going insane? How much can we detach ourselves before losing our humanity?

Scheer’s stories grapple with these questions in each throbbing, choking, heartbreaking moment.


I Know You're There
by Susan Allison-Dean
Paperback ~ Published April 2013

Jill Bradley is a 24-year-old nurse whose life is going great; she’s established herself in her new career, and she’s looking forward to getting engaged to her high school sweet heart. When life’s tide changes and she is bombarded by tragedy, loss, and betrayal all at once, she can no longer cope. In a moment of despair, she books a trip to a Caribbean island in an effort to escape her problems. She finds respite and romance, but her problems have also packed their own suitcase.

Helen Bradley is Jill’s mother. Like many mothers of her time, she has dedicated her life to her life to her family. Despite her best efforts, however, she hasn’t always been able to be the type of mother she wished she could be. She has a secret she was hoping would just go away, but it won’t. If she doesn’t share it with her daughter, Jill, it might bring Jill more harm.

I Know You’re There is a mother-daughter journey, celebrating the highs and delving in to the lows of family life. Can the power of love heal all things?
