The Other Side of Someday (Boyfriend Chronicles series) (affiliate link)
If you walked in on your high school sweetheart and husband of ten years in a compromising position with your best friend, what would you do?
Would you kick him out, serve him divorce papers, and leave the small town in North Carolina where you grew up, taking his dog with you just to spite him?
Because that’s what I did.
I have no idea why I chose Santa Monica as the place of my rebirth, but here I am, in the land of earthquakes, mudslides, and wildfires, starting over when most women my age are just starting out.
When I come across the bucket list my mother scratched out before she died, I decide this may just be the kick in the pants I need to figure out who I am and where I’m meant to be. Stepping outside my comfort zone, I set out to accomplish everything she never got the chance to do.

And every night, he watches me.
The caretaker is scarred. Surly. He walks with a limp and barely speaks. Most residents in our building are afraid of him, but not me.
I want him closer.
Feeling his eyes on me every night at the pool–it brings my body surging to life. He may be older; may be brutish. May pretend he’s not looking at me at all.
But I know better.
The caretaker wants me.
And I’m tired of looking. I want his touch.

The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt and the Fire that Saved America (affiliate link)
Author: Egan, Timothy
Regularly $3.99, Today $1.99
Timothy Egan turns his historian’s eye to the largest-ever forest fire in America and offers an epic, cautionary tale for our time.
On the afternoon of August 20, 1910, a battering ram of wind moved through the drought-stricken national forests of Washington, Idaho, and Montana, whipping the hundreds of small blazes burning across the forest floor into a roaring inferno that jumped from treetop to ridge as it raged, destroying towns and timber in the blink of an eye. Forest rangers had assembled nearly ten thousand men to fight the fires, but no living person had seen anything like those flames, and neither the rangers nor anyone else knew how to subdue them. Egan recreates the struggles of the overmatched rangers against the implacable fire with unstoppable dramatic force, and the larger story of outsized president Teddy Roosevelt and his chief forester, Gifford Pinchot, that follows is equally resonant.
