Wendy Wax's latest, ONE GOOD THING, is out today (4/25). It took me a bit to get into it as I didn't realize it was the fifth book in a series. Once I caught up a bit, it was a fairly fun, soapy read. Good for the beach bag, if nothing else! Full review at my blog.

Happy publication day (4/25) to Elizabeth Strout and ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE! Strout's latest is a series of interconnected short stories focused on the title character of her previous novel, Lucy Barton. It's not always the most uplifting of reads, but the stories are fascinating, often touching, and quite captivating. Highly recommend (and pick up MY NAME IS LUCY BARTON if you haven't already). Full reviews of both at my blog.

Happy publication day (4/24) to THAW, a unique female/female romance, featuring an asexual heroine, Abby. Abby is an introverted librarian and lover of books, so obviously I liked her immediately! This whole novel is surprisingly enjoyable, even if it relies on some of the typical romance tropes. A lot of it just made me smile -- and I blew through it in about 24 hours. Definitely worth a read. Full review at my blog.

Happy book birthday to Megan Miranda and THE PERFECT STRANGER! Leah Stevens and her friend Emmy move to rural Pennsylvania to start over. But their fresh start is jeopardized when a local woman, with a startling likeness to Leah, is attacked. Then Emmy vanishes, and Leah really starts to worry. This novel gets progressively creepier as it unfolds, and I was totally hooked! Probably my only issue was the somewhat anticlimactic ending. Still, definitely worth a read! Full review at my blog.

Happy publication day to Joanna Goodman and THE FINISHING SCHOOL! It has been 20 years since Kersti set foot on the grounds of the Lycée, the prestigious boarding school she attended as a teen. She left abruptly in her senior year, after her best friend, Cressida, fell from her balcony. The school declared the event an accident, but now, Kersti finds herself unconvinced. While bits of the plot are a little outlandish, this dark and twisted tale will have you frantic to finish the last portions of the novel and put everything together! Full review at my blog.

Andrew McCarthy's first novel, which releases today (3/28), tells the story of Lucy, who is living the life of an average teen, until her parents reveal some shocking news: her father has a young son with another woman. Lucy's world is turned upside down as she attempts to deal with this unexpected bombshell.

It took a while for me to warm up to this book, and truly, the main redeeming character was Lucy's grandfather. It was certainly not my favorite, though I see some potential in McCarthy's work (and thankfully, he always has his acting and directing careers to fall back on!). Full review at my blog.

Jessica Strawser's ALMOST MISSED YOU is out today (3/28). It's a suspenseful tale of a couple's marriage torn apart when the husband, Finn, unexpectedly takes off with their young son, Bear. It definitely captivates you right away, even if the characters can sometimes serve as their own (frustrating) worst enemies. Still, it's interesting and a quick read! Full review at my blog.

Sarah Dunn's novel, THE ARRANGEMENT, is out today (3/21). It's a different, oddly intriguing look at marriage and raising children-- and is surprisingly funny. Full review at the blog.

I was late to the party with this one, but it pretty much lived up to the hype! YOU is a hypnotizing thriller that completely sucks you in! The main character, Joe, is incredibly delusional, yet you start to empathize with him: pretty impressive on Kepnes' part. It's a warning about our digital age and a twisted story of obsession. Certainly worth the read!
