First up is The Friends We Keep by Susan Mallery. The story is about three protagonists and their challenges with marriage, motherhood and life in general. I know some of you really enjoy Mallery’s books and I’ve had this author on my radar for a while so I was excited to get this book.
The Girl In the Well Is Me by Karen Rivers. Kammie fell into a well during a club’s initiation rite and now she doesn’t know if she’s going to be rescued. This book is targeted for young readers and while I haven’t been reading a lot of YA, the title really caught my attention and I think this one has a lot of potential.
The Passenger by Lisa Lutz. The story starts with a dead husband, lying at the bottom of the stairs. His wife tells the readers she didn’t do it. I have seen this one mentioned on a lot of blogs and newsletters and I was very excited to get a copy. Sounds like a good thriller right?
Dark Debts by Karen Hall. From the publisher, Hall has masterfully combined southern gothic, romantic comedy, and mystery in a wildly original theological thriller that has become a cult favorite since being published 20 years ago. I don’t recall hearing about this book before but I’m definitely intrigued.
The other item I received was a catalog for Zest Books and while Zest features books for Young Adults there were certainly several books in the catalog that I think sound really good and will have to put on my radar. Some of the titles that I would like to check out are: Plotted by Andrew DeGraff, Unslut by Emily Lindin, Prison Island by Colleen Frakes and Zoo Station by Christiane F.
Ok, I think I have enough reading material here to keep me happy this weekend. I hope you all have a great weekend. Anyone have any big plans? Me, I plan to catch up on my blog reading. I don’t know what happened this week but I’m really behind so looking forward to doing that.
