A monthly meme to keep up with the latest publications, featuring at least two advance copy reviews to look forward to reading.
February looks like another huge month for publishing, and I’m really excited about The Price of Blood by Patricia Bracewell. Even though I received an ARC, I wanted to set that aside and read the published book instead — really immerse myself back into Emma’s life. Hopefully a review will come soon for that!
Until then, take a peek at these featured books I’ll review on the blog this month!
I Remember You by Cathleen Davitt Bell
(Knopf Books for Young Readers, February 10)
Lucas and Juliet couldn’t be more different from each other. But from the moment Lucas sees Juliet, he swears he remembers their first kiss. Their first dance. Their first fight. He even knows what’s going to happen between them—not because he can predict the future, but because he claims to have already lived it.
Intriguing. Seeing the future, but not exactly predicting it. Curious to see where this one goes!
Although tensions run high on the set, Julie finds she can step onto the back lot, take in the smell of smoky gunpowder and the soft rustle of hoop skirts, and feel the magical world of Gone with the Wind come to life. Julie’s access to real-life magic comes when Carole Lombard hires her as an assistant and invites her into the glamorous world Carole shares with Clark Gable—who is about to move into movie history as the dashing Rhett Butler.
I’m a Kate Alcott fan. I’ll read just about anything she puts out there. What really entices me about this book is that this doesn’t appear to be focused on fashion. Her other two books were — fashion and fabrics mixed with court rulings — and this one is about a girl’s journey in Hollywood during the filming of Gone with the Wind. How amazing would that be?
Which books are you looking forward to in February?
