In the Blink of an Eye: Dale, Daytona, and the Day That Changed Everything by Michael Waltrip
One of the NASCAR racers involved in the wreck that killed Dale Earnhardt Sr. discusses his life before and after the tragedy. We’re sure that sucked, but since the racers still drive in circles, we don’t know that everything changed.
The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels by Ree Drummond
A non-fiction story of a big city socialite who meets and marries a super-hot, rugged cowboy and goes to live on his ranch. Sounds a bit like “gloating” to us.
Blackveil by Kristen Britain
Book Four of the Green Rider series. Having been whisked to a fantasy world, a former college student becomes a Green Rider, one of the King’s messengers. It’s kind of like FedEx, but with unicorns.
The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine by Michael Lewis

This debut novel from the acclaimed author of the short-story collection St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves is without a doubt the best book about an alligator-wrestling theme park you’ll read all week.
