Because I want to focus a bit more on my reads I haven’t been accepting as many ARCs lately. Granted, sometimes some of those come without being requested and it’s very nice of course but they may just have to wait a bit longer on the nightstand.
I do want to share with you some of the ARCs I’m especially thrilled about though.
First, is The Missing Ink by Karen E. Olson. I really enjoyed Karen’s Annie Seymour series and can’t wait to read this one which is the start of her new Tattoo Shop mystery series. A postcard came with the ARc which has the cover art for the book and it’s quite cool. Not only that, but I’m happy to host Karen during her blog tour in July.
Next is More Than It Hurts You by Darin Strauss. From the back cover: Strauss’s extraordinary novel is set in a world turned upside down – where doctors try to save babies from their parents, police use the law to tear families apart, and the people you think you know best end up surprising you the most.
Then I got a book from a new to me publisher, Other Press. I’ve just briefly looked through their catalog and am already adding more books to my list but first, I’ll get to read The Unit by Ninni Holmqvist. This dystopian novel takes the reader to a world where women over fifty and men over sixty who are childless, and do not contribute in ways deemed productive for society, are designated as “dispensable,” and are expected to contribute in other ways. They are taken to a special reserve bank for physical and psychological experiments. Being that my husband and I are childless I am at once curious and a bit anxious to read this one.
So, I’ve got some interesting reading ahead of me don’t you think? What about you? What ARCs/books have you received lately that you are excited about?
Oh and don’t forget my giveaway. I’ll post the winners sometime later on Friday.
