Posting a bit late this week due to a family outing. But now I'm back.
In case you missed it, I had a guest review of Helen Keller in Love this week from my friend Jessica - check it out here!
This week I received another copy (a hardcover instead of a galley) of A Small Fortune. Guess what I'll be holding a giveaway for next week..
I also received a review copy of Auraria by Tim Westover from QW Publishers, which will be released on July 10th of this year. Here's the summary from Amazon: Water spirits, moon maidens, haunted pianos, headless revenants, and an invincible terrapin that lives under the mountains. None of these distract James Holtzclaw from his employer's mission: to turn the fading gold-rush town of Auraria, GA, into a first-class resort and drown its fortunes below a man-made lake. But when Auraria's peculiar people and problematic ghosts collide with his own rival ambitions, Holtzclaw must decide what he will save and what will be washed away. Taking its inspiration from a real Georgia ghost town, Auraria is steeped in the folklore of the Southern Appalachians, where the tensions of natural, supernatural and artificial are still alive.
And finally, my mother brought me a copy of Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith for my birthday, which is this Thursday the 3rd. Happy Birthday to me!!
