A monthly meme to keep up with the latest publications, featuring at least two advance copy reviews to look forward to reading.
There are so many great titles coming out in October, I doubt I’ll be able to keep up with all of them! Two of the featured ARCs here are favorites, either for the content or for the author. One was part of my #ARCAugust challenge, and another part of a readalong, #KMflails.
A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis
(Katherine Tegen Books, October 6)
I’m not even going to put a description here for the following reasons:
- It’s too great to accurately put into words.
- It has everything you could want from a well-researched, thrilling, mysterious, literary, historical YA.
- My review will be posted Friday anyway.
The Lake House by Kate Morton
(Atria Books, October 20)
Living on her family’s gorgeous lakeside estate in Cornwall, England, Alice Edevane is a clever, innocent, and precociously talented fourteen-year-old who loves to write stories. But the mysteries she pens are no match for the one her family is about to endure. One midsummer’s eve, the Edevanes discover that their youngest son, Theo, has vanished without a trace. What follows is a tragedy that tears the family apart in ways they never imagined, leaving their estate as empty as their sunken hearts.
Nearly sixty years later, having enjoyed a long, successful career as an author, Alice is now living in London. Theo’s case has never been solved, though Alice still harbors a suspicion as to the culprit. Sadie Sparrow, a young detective in the London police force, is staying at her grandfather’s house in Cornwall. While out walking one day, she stumbles upon the old estate—now crumbling and covered with vines, clearly abandoned long ago. Her curiosity is sparked and sets off a series of events that will bring her and Alice together and reveal shocking truths about a past long gone, yet more present than ever.
Another brilliant Morton coming soon, eh? If you love her previous work, you’ll enjoy this one too!
