I’ve gotten a couple of new ARCs recently and I think I really lucked out with these as they sound very interesting to me.
The first one is I’m Perfect, You’re Doomed by Kyria Abrahams. This is a coming-of-age memoir of a girl growing up as a Jehovah’s Witness. I’m not much of a memoir reader but this sounds like it could be interesting.
The other book is from the imprint Serpent’s Tail. I’ve read a couple of books from this publisher and have really enjoyed them so hopefully this is also a good book. The Good Plain Cook by Bethan Roberts is the story of a young woman who answers an advertisement for a good plain cook and ends up getting more than she bargained for.
My other book is The Romantics by Galt Niederhoffer. This book has such a lovely cover and promises to be a captivating story of two friends, one about to be married, and what happens on the days leading up to the wedding.
If this wasn’t enough, to tempt me further I’ve received the latest catalog from Hesperus Press. Unfortunately their web site is under construction so I couldn’t find more info but it looks like they’ve got a list of world literature that they are about to launch August 2009.
So much to look forward to. How about you? Got any new ARCs you are excited about?
