A few books arrived on my doorstep this week:
At The Bottom Of Everything by Ben Dolnick – For review from Pantheon / Random House. This adult fiction novel is about a friendship torn apart by a secret.
Fairytales for Wilde Girls by Allyse Near – I ordered a few books by Australian authors on Fishpond, and this is the first to arrive. I love the official description, it’s “a deliciously dark bubblegum-gothic fairytale”
Doctor Sleep by Stephen King – For review from Simon & Schuster Audio. I read The Shining in high school, and wish I could fit in a re-read before checking out the sequel. The audiobook is read by Will Patton.
Smoke by Ellen Hopkins – For review from Simon & Schuster Audio. I’m going to listen to Burned first so I can read it and the sequel back to back. The audiobook is read by January LaVoy and Candace Thaxton.
Poison Dance by Livia Blackburne – Review copy provided by the author. This is a prequel novella to Blackburne’s 2014 high fantasy YA Midnight Thief.
Trust in Me by J. Lynn – This is a novella-length companion to Wait for You featuring Cam’s POV. Received from William Morrow via Edelweiss.
Red Hill by Jamie McGuire – New Adult Romance author McGuire tries her hand at a zombie novel. Really curious about this one! Received from Atria Books via Edelweiss.
Suicide Watch by Kelley York – Picked up the kindle edition, now on sale for $0.99. As the title suggests, the protagonist is going through a dark time, and makes some powerful connections in a pro-suicide forum.
The Bridge by Rebecca Rogers Maher – I purchased this kindle new release novella, coincidentally also about suicide. This is about two people that meet on the Brooklyn Bridge, both planning to end their lives. They decide to wait for 24-hours to try to change each other’s mind. They go sightseeing all over New York on their journey.
Some dark and heavy books this week- it must be Fall!
Have a good week and let me know what you’re reading in the comments.
