Yes, Valerie's Turning Pages!

Summer is here, and it's a great time to sit back, relax with your favorite frozen drink and a enjoy a great book. 


Welcome to my new online book club, "Valerie's Turning Pages!"  Here I will share some of my favorite reads from the comfort of my backyard garden as I sip on frozen strawberry margaritas, blueberry mint lemonade, watermelon green tea or whatever the preferred summer flavor of the week is.

You are invited to turn pages with me as we read books from some of my favorite Atlanta, GA based authors and others from around the world. I will share the book summary and a quick review.


I'd love to include some of your favorite books on our reading list as well! Be sure to drop me a note to let me know what you are reading this summer.  Take a picture with the book and tag @yesthatgirlblog on Instagram for a chance to have your own book review featured on our summer reading list.

I am excited to bring you special promotions and offers by some really great independent book stores and online retailers like eBooks, hosting over a million books online.

Happy Reading!

What I'm Reading...

eBook - Every Breath.jpg

Illuminating heartbreaking regrets and enduring hope, Every Breath explores the many facets of love that lay claim to our deepest loyalties while asking a life-changing question: How long can a dream survive?

In this entertaining, informative, and thoroughly unconventional wine guide, award-winning sommelier, winemaker, and wine educator André Mack presents listeners with the 99 bottles that have most impacted his life. Instead of just pairing wines with foods, Mack pairs practical information with personal stories, offering up recommendations alongside reflections on being one of the only African-Americans to ever work at the top level of the American wine industry. 

Book - Big Summer.jpg

A deliciously funny, remarkably poignant, and simply unpauseable novel about the power of friendship, the lure of frenemies, and the importance of making peace with yourself through all life’s ups and down. From the number-one New York Times best-selling author of Good in Bed and Best Friends Forever, Big Summer is the perfect escape with one of the most lovable heroines to come to an audiobook in years.
