Why yes, I did get some new books last week! I didn't buy them, as I'm trying to stick to my plan to read only from my stacks. However, these ARCs showed up at work and I couldn't resist bringing them home. They both sound very good and I'll probably dive into them sometime this summer.
I've not read anything by Lisa Lutz, but this blurb caught my eye:
A sharp, clever, and utterly compelling thriller about a woman running from the mistakes and misfortunes of her past. Terrific. ~ Chris Pavone, New York Times bestselling author of The Expats and The AccidentAnd, after reading the following blurb, I knew I had to give Anna and the Swallow Man a chance.
Not unlike another novel I edited, Markus Zusak's The Book Thief, this is a story about growing up--all the way up--during a time of monumental change. I am incredibly proud to share Anna and the Swallow Man with you. It deserves a space on the top shelf, where the most brilliant books live to be read and cherished time and time again. ~Erin Clarke, Executive Editor, Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers.
The Passenger is due out on March 1, 2016. Anna and The Swallow Man will hit the shelves on January 26, 2016. Oh, goodness. Maybe I'll sneak these in before summer. They both sound very, very good.
