As promised, here is Part 2 of the NetGalley Upcoming Reads. I have ten books that I am excited to read and review and already showcased five of them to you in my original post, which you can find below… https://theliteraryarchives.com/2020/03/04/upcoming-netgalley-reads-part-1/
Four of the next five books are coming out in April or August. I will be dutifully reading so that you can have a review before they are published and can add them to your own TBR list!
The Dark Continent by Scott Reardon was published January 28, 2020 by Aspen Press. I only recently was given a copy of this book and I am really intrigued as to what I will think when I finish reading it. This is NetGalley’s description… “On an oil rig off the coast of Alaska, fifteen test subjects, all of them death-row inmates, have joined a gruesome experiment with unprecedented implications.” What part of that one sentence doesn’t scream spooky or apocalyptic??
The book I am currently engrossed in is The Girl in the Tree by Şebnem İşigüzel. I am not too far into it yet but I am excited to see where it goes. It will be published in English on April 16, 2020 by AmazonCrossing. Şebnem is a Turkish writer and this will be her first book to be translated into English!
This book is about a young girl who climbs into the top of a tree and tries to make sense of the world. A young boy who is working at a hotel sees her and falls in love. They begin to try to make sense of their world together, sharing stories about loss, love, and societal tension.
The next book to be published is The Crash of Flight 3804 by Charlotte Dennett. This is a nonfiction/history book that talks about Charlotte’s Father’s counterintelligence work during 1947. Daniel Dennett was sent to Saudi Arabia to study the plans for the Trans-Arabian Pipeline.
I can get really into history from time to time so I am curious to see what this one is really all about.
Coming out on April 7, 2020 is a book I am really excited to get to! The Age of Witches by Louisa Morgan will be published by Redhook Books.
Set in Gilded Age New York, The Age of Witches tells the story of two different lines of witches – those willing to heal and help, and those willing to sacrifice whatever it takes to gain power.
I am really excited about this fantasy novel!
Lastly, but surely not least, is The Bright Side Sanctuary for Animals by Becky Mandelbaum. This book will be published by Simon&Schuster on August 4, 2020. This is Becky’s debut novel and is about a woman, Ariel, who heads back to her mother’s animal sanctuary after learning that it is struggling. Tinged with romance and drama, this one is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
The cover really makes me want to sit on my porch, lean back in my chair, and read while I sip a glass of ice tea and watch the summer sun set over the horizon.
I am excited for all of these novels and for the opportunity to share them with each of you. Hopefully, I can bust some of these out soon so that you can get them fresh off the shelves after reading my review!
