Mailbox Musings on Monday

Musing Mondays, hosted at A Daily Rhythym, is a weekly meme that asks you to choose one of the following prompts to answer:

I’m currently reading…Up next I think I’ll read…I bought the following book(s) in the past week…I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…I can’t wait to get a copy of…I wish I could read ___, but…I blogged about ____ this past week…

So here goes:

I'm super excited to tell you about the song lyrics I made up to the tune of "Something to Talk About" (performed by Bonnie Raitt).  Only my version is called "Pumpkin to Talk About", some words I made up to the tune that go along with the story of Joyce and Jim Lavene's new book (out tomorrow!) called "Give 'Em Pumpkin to Talk About" (link goes to GoodReads).  Bear in mind that the lyrics I wrote are far more in line with the book than the music:

People are talkin' 'bout people
That disappeared long ago, no one knows
Where they went but the time has come now
Their grandkid is grown and she wants to know
How and why they disappeared
She has friends she needs to clear
Danger’s not gone; in fact it’s near
As near as the pumpkin patch maybe, Darlin’

Let's give them pumpkin to talk about
Down to the barn raisin’ we’ll give ‘em out
Let's give them pumpkin to talk about
Talk about pumpkin bread?

He looked so scruffy, not her kind of guy
He sabotaged her
Efforts to sell the house
But for her grandparents he helped her out
She started thinking he’s not so bad
For her he even shaved his beard
They faced some danger side by side
Once or twice they almost died
Now that the murders are solved, they thought, Darlin’

Let's give them pumpkin to talk about
Down to the barn raisin’ we gave ‘em out
Let's give them pumpkin to talk about
How about pumpkin pie?

Let's give them pumpkin to talk about
A little mystery to figure out
Let's give them pumpkin to talk about

How about pumpkin cheesecake?


From the Mailbox Monday site (click the button to go there):

Here at Mailbox Monday, we want to encourage participants to not only share the books they received, but to check out the books others have received.
One of these days I'll keep a running draft post during the week, but until then, here's some Kindle books I got during the last couple of days:













Since I didn't do a little bit of work on this post each day, I won't put up links but you can find any of them on GoodReads
