The two biggies of the month are of course, Forever and Supernaturally.
My daughter and I read Paranormalcy through her school’s library, before the book was available on the shelf (one of the perks of having a child on the library squad). Since we don’t own a physical copy I may just buy the ebook. Forever, on the other hand, will be on our shelf to sit alongside Shiver and Linger!
Another book on my list, Heaven’s Shadow, was released on Tuesday:
Three years ago, an object one hundred miles across was spotted on a trajectory for Earth’s sun. Now, its journey is almost over. As it approaches, two competing manned vehicles race through almost half a million kilometers of space to reach it first. But when they both arrive on the entity, they learn that it has been sent toward Earth for a reason. An intelligent race is desperately attempting to communicate with our primitive species. And the message is: Help us.
I’ve also received an ARC from my bookish/creative/amazing friend Jan:
Faith, love and sexuality have fallen prey to politics in this stunning creation of America in the near future, from the author whose international bestseller, Mudbound, so hauntingly recreated America’s past. Hannah Payne’s life has been devoted to church and family, but after her arrest, she awakens to a nightmare: she lies on a table in a mirrored room, covered only by a paper gown, with cameras broadcasting her every move to millions at home, for whom observing new “chromes”—criminals whose skin color has been genetically altered to match the class of their crime— is a new and sinister form of reality TV. Hannah is a Red; her crime is murder
