Project Dad: The Complete Do-It-Yourself Guide for Becoming a Great FatherProject Dad: The Complete Do-It-Yourself Guide for Becoming a Great Father by Todd Cartmell ~ Non-Fiction / Parenting ~ Available Now ~ Received courtesy of Revell for promotion and giveaway
What does it take to build a great dad?

Men like to build things. We like to take parts and put them together to make a whole. Did you know that this do-it-yourself talent can help you become a great dad?

In his fresh, humorous style, Todd Cartmell takes you on an action-packed journey to help you become the dad God made you to be and that your kids hope you will be. You will learn the five key areas that every great dad needs to renovate, including how you look at, talk to, connect with, act toward, and lead your children.

Cartmell shows you that you already have the raw materials at your disposal, then gives you the blueprint for putting them together. Begin your Project Dad today. Your family will never be the same.

Delilah: A NovelDelilah: A Novel by India Edghill ~ Fiction / Biblical / Historical ~ Available Now ~ Received courtesy of the Publisher for review via their Facebook page (I was one of the first 3 to respond)
Given to the temple of Atargatis as a child, Delilah is raised to be a priestess to the Five Cities that rule Canaan. She grows up under the watchful eyes of high priestess Derceto, who sees her as a valuable pawn in her political agenda. Meanwhile, in the hills of Canaan, the Israelites choose Samson to lead their fight against the Five Cities. When he catches a glimpse of Delilah, he risks his freedom to marry her, and Derceto seizes the chance to have Samson at her mercy. Caught between the two, Delilah is forced to question her own heart.

An inventive retelling of an ancient story, Delilah is a tale of political turmoil, betrayal, passionate friendship, and forbidden love.

What Alice ForgotWhat Alice Forgot: A Novel ARC by Liane Moriarty ~ Fiction / Parenting ~ Available June 2011 ~ Received courtesy of the publisher for review via Shelf Awareness
What would happen if you were visited by your younger self, and got a chance for a do-over?

Alice Love is twenty-nine years old, madly in love with her husband, and pregnant with their first child. So imagine her surprise when, after a fall, she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! she HATES the gym!) and discovers that she's actually thirty-nine, has three children, and is in the midst of an acrimonious divorce.

A knock on the head has misplaced ten years of her life, and Alice isn't sure she likes who she's become. It turns out, though, that forgetting might be the most memorable thing that has ever happened to Alice.

The book What Alice Forgot sounds really interesting. Going to look into that one next. I'll be interested in hearing how it measures up to. That knock on the head sure fired up a new reality.

Happy reading :)
