New Books

Some new ARCs have arrived at Casa Bookgirl this week and I had to share with you my loot. Let me know if you’ve read these or have some of these on your radar.

  • The Outside Boy by Jeanine Cummins. A poignant, unforgettable coming-of-age story that brings 1950s Ireland to vivid life. This sounds very good.
  • The Osiris Ritual by George Mann. I admit the title didn’t grab me at first but when I read the description I liked it. A steampunk mystery adventure featuring immortality, artifacts, and intrepid sleuths Sir Maurice Newbury and Miss Veronica Hobbes. Doesn’t it sound fun?
  • The Ark by Boyd Morrison. Again, this is a book which I may not have glanced at twice as the cover didn’t really pull me in (I know, that sounds so bad!) but it sounds like it could be a fun Summer thriller. The book promises a mix of archeology, biblical history, and lots of thrills.
  • The Faculty Club by Danny Tobey. This debut thriller has hidden tunnels, ancient rituals, secret societies, and a lot of suspsense. I hope it’s a page-turner.
  • Stay by Allie Larkin. Now for something a bit more emotional, this is about a young woman getting over a heartbreak and getting her life back on track.

Anyway, short post tonight because I forgot I have mystery book group next week and I still haven’t started my book. Plus, I just got a reminder that some of my library books are due soon and some can’t be renewed. Oh dear, must learn how to read faster.
