Happy “where’d all my money go?” new release Tuesday, everyone!
As you know, the most exciting day of the week in this community is the day that follows the one we all dread (Mondays for the nope) and today we’re going to highlight some of the new books chipping away at our bank accounts — but each one is so worth it.
Plain Bad Heroines by Emily A. Danforth has been pitched as, “a story within a story within a story and featuring black-and-white period illustrations, Plain Bad Heroines is a devilishly haunting, modern masterwork of metafiction that manages to combine the ghostly sensibility of Sarah Waters with the dark imagination of Marisha Pessl and the sharp humor and incisive social commentary of Curtis Sittenfeld into one laugh-out-loud funny, spellbinding, and wonderfully luxuriant read.” Consider us intrigued!
Among the Beasts and Briars by Ashley Poston is a story we have no idea about. But it has a gorgeous cover and early reviews have thrown about UPROOTED and THE BONE HOUSES, two books we here at the blog loved.
The Book of Two Ways by Jodi Picoult takes the themes of Egyptology and death weaving them into a heavy tale of two possibilities for the protagonist, Dawn.
My Heart Underwater by Laurel Flores Fantauzzo is a LGBTQ+ YA read set between the US and the Phillipines. This story has a number of tropes including a teacher-student connection. This is an own voices book and you should check some own voices reviews on this too.
The Winter Duke by Claire Eliza Bartlett is a another LGBTQ+ book but this time set in a YA fantasy world that felt rather fresh. Its full on magic and focuses on the premise that the family want to kill one another!
