Recently I got a nice bundle of review copies. I just wish I could read all of these right now but I’m deep into five books right now so I’ve got to finish some of those before I start these but don’t these sound good?
- The Murderer’s Daughters by Randy Susan Meyers. It’s the story of two sisters and their journey to overcome family violence. This sounds like it’ll be sad but nevertheless a gripping read.
- The Heights by Peter Hedges. Tim and Kate have a great, ordinary love. Settled in their crowded apartment amid lavish brownstones of Brooklyn Heights, they raise their sons never wondering if their marriage is anything but solid and true. But their neat and tidy world is about to be tested by the arrival of a wealthy, beautiful and impulsive new neighbor. Ooh drama!
- Exit the Actress by Priya Parmar. A vivid imagining of the Restoration London of Charles II with Nell Gwyn as a powerful and engaging heroine set in the busy world of the theater. Looks like a fun historical novel.
- The Mistress of Nothing by Kate Pullinger. Based on the real lives of famed traveler Lady Duff Gordon and her maid, the novel takes readers on a journey from the high society of Victorian England to the uncharted far reaches of Egypt’s Nile Valley. I really like the premise of this one!
As I said, all of these are intriguing to me and I would love to start them now but they’ll have to wait just a bit longer. Have you read any of these? How about you, got any new review copies that you are excited about?
