Happy Valentine's Day! A day of love, a day to celebrate friendships, a day to eat more chocolate, a money maker...
In the last week or so I've received a bunch of books in my mail box. I ordered a used copy of The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters from Alibris and was anxiously awaiting it last week. My son texted me one afternoon and said I had a box in the mail and he thought it was probably that book. When I got home he handed it to me but I knew right away it was not the pkg. It was a medium size box with four books inside from Zoe Luderitz at Little, Brown and Company! I was delighted. (picture me jumping with glee)
Inside I found:
1. Bird in a Box by Andrea Davis Pinkney-It is 1936. America is in the middle of the Great Depression, and three children-Otis, Willie and Hibernia-are about to become friends. (a snippet from the back cover)
2. I'll Be There by Holly Goldbert Sloan-This is an innovative portrait of two brothers who cross paths with a family that will change their lives forever. (from publicity letter)
3. The Time-Traveling Fashionista by Bianca Turetsky- When Louise Lambert receives a mysterious invitation to a traveling vintage sale in the mail, her normal life in suburban Connecticut is magically transformed into a time-travel adventure. (back cover)
4. Bitter End by Jennifer Brown-The second novel in the Hate List series tackles abusive relationships in one teen's life. (publicity letter)
