Guernica, by Dave Boling – This was completely unexpected as Bloomsbury had earlier sent me an Advance Readers Edition of this book…but this was a finished hard cover! I need to read Guernica very soon so that I can post a giveaway of my ARE here on my blog. Watch for my review and give-away sometime in the next month.
The UPS truck delivered a heavy package to my door on Friday from Miriam at Little, Brown and Company. Inside were these wonderful books:
Say You’re One of Them, by Uwem Akpan (a collection of short stories set in Africa)
An Exact Replica of a Figment of My Imagination, by Elizabeth McCracken (a memoir)
The Road Home, by Rose Tremain (the Orange Prize Winner for 2008)
The Heretic’s Daughter, by Kathleen Kent which was sent to me to give away on my blog (this is a finished hard cover edition). I will be reading my ARE of this book very, very soon and posting information about how you can win the hard cover edition of this newly released novel here on my blog. Stay tuned!
