| @putnambooks @getredpr #partner | Necessities for making it through Monday. See above: Starbucks and Books!
🌿
My dear sweet friend Lauren @booksonherbrain has only had the best things to say about @cristina.alger newest release, The Banker’s Wife. I AM HERE FOR IT. What else to get through a Monday than a new thriller that your #bookstagram buddy is raving about?
🌿
Thank you to the publisher for my copy! The Banker’s Wife released on 7/3.
🌿
n an early morning in November, a couple boards a private plane bound for Geneva, flying into a storm. Soon after, it simply drops off the radar, and its wreckage is later uncovered in the Alps. Among the disappeared is Matthew Werner, a banking insider at Swiss United, a powerful offshore bank. His young widow, Annabel, is left grappling with the secrets he left behind, including an encrypted laptop and a shady client list. As she begins a desperate search for answers, she determines that Matthew's death was no accident, and that she is now in the crosshairs of his powerful enemies.
Meanwhile, ambitious society journalist Marina Tourneau has finally landed at the top. Now that she's engaged to Grant Ellis, she will stop writing about powerful families and finally be a part of one. Her entry into the upper echelons of New York's social scene is more appealing than any article could ever be, but, after the death of her mentor, she agrees to dig into one more story. While looking into Swiss United, Marina uncovers information that implicates some of the most powerful men in the financial world, including a few who are too close to home. The story could also be the answer to Annabel's heartbreaking search--if Marina chooses to publish it.

A few pretty spines and stories that make my heart skip a beat when I think about them! Stories that pulled me in (Girl in Snow), stories that left me wondering about magic and fairy tales (Little Nothing), stories I can’t wait to read ( The Luminaries and The Mare).

Here’s to more heart skipping stories and Sunday evenings just for reading!

Synopsis: One summer day, Grace Fairchild, the beautiful young wife of real estate mogul Alistair Calloway, vanished from the family’s lake house without a trace, leaving behind a slew of unanswered questions. Years later, her seventeen-year-old daughter Charlie still struggles with the mystery surrounding her mother. Determined to finally let go of the past, she throws herself into life at the prestigious Knollwood School. Charlie quickly is tapped by the A’s—the school’s elite secret society. To become a member of the A’s, Charlie must play The Game, a semester-long, diabolical high-stakes scavenger hunt that will jeopardize her friendships, her reputation, even her place at Knollwood.

| @williammorrowbooks #partner | I picked The Summer Wives up during nap time this morning and would just like to say...I would surely have this finished today were it not for kiddos and adult responsibilities (say, if it were 2011 🤷🏻‍♀️). Ohhh those were the days!

Time for a #somekindofabookreview! I finished An Ocean of Minutes over the weekend and still can’t get Polly’s story out of my heart. I spent a lot of time feeling mildly stressed while reading this story and eventually heartbroken as the story pulled together towards the end. I loved Thea Lim’s writing and the sway of the story, as it gave you snippets of the very honest and imperfect relationship Polly and Frank had prior to the point at which Polly decides to travel to the future. I also enjoy stories that take place in a dystopian future, watching characters deal with things I can only imagine (thus, the stress levels!). All in all, I rated this 4⭐️ on Goodreads! Thank you @touchstonebooks and @kelseymmanning for this beautifully written story! An Ocean of Minutes is out tomorrow!

| @tin_house #partner | When beautiful #bookmail arrives on your doorstep, it’s hard to not just feel really really special. Thank you THANK YOU @tin_house for this beautiful new edition of Samantha Hunt’s The Seas! It is absolutely gorgeous. ((See my stories for more photos!))
🌊
When I find an author I like, I enjoy going back and finding copies of their early work to read. I’ve been trying for almost a year, with no luck, to find an early copy of The Seas that wasn’t overly expensive. Sooooo you can imagine my absolute delight when @tin_house offered me a copy of the new edition!
🌊
Have you read anything by Samantha Hunt? This edition is out 7/10! Let’s read it together!
🌊
Moored in a coastal fishing town so far north that the highways only run south, the unnamed narrator of The Seas is a misfit. She’s often the subject of cruel local gossip. Her father, a sailor, walked into the ocean eleven years earlier and never returned, leaving his wife and daughter to keep a forlorn vigil. Surrounded by water and beckoned by the sea, she clings to what her father once told her: that she is a mermaid.

True to myth, she finds herself in hard love with a land-bound man, an Iraq War veteran thirteen years her senior.The mesmerizing, fevered coming-of-age tale that follows will land her in jail. Her otherworldly escape will become the stuff of legend.
🌊

| @touchstonebooks #partner | Before the sky filled with fireworks from basically every house in the neighborhood, I snapped a photo of my current read so I could share my initial thoughts. I HAVE MANY.
🌿
At about 1/4 of the way in, this story is already hard to stop thinking about and really making me feel anxious. Something about the main character, Polly, and how she is handling the situation she’s found herself in (17 years in the future via time travel) is making me question what I would do in this situation and let me tell you IT.IS.STRESSING.ME.OUT. I would be curled up in a ball somewhere, if we’re being honest. But I’m rooting 100% for her and Frank and my goodness if this hasn’t already led to some interesting conversations and questions with my husband!! Most importantly: “Would he wait for me and how would I find him in every worst case scenario??!!??” #stressed
🌿
I will keep you posted as I continue reading! As always @kelseymmanning and @touchstonebooks have not disappointed and I’ll probably be talking about this book for weeks! So grateful for the early copy, An Ocean of Minutes is out 7/10!
🌿
America is in the grip of a deadly flu pandemic. When Frank catches the virus, his girlfriend Polly will do whatever it takes to save him, even if it means risking everything. She agrees to a radical plan—time travel has been invented in the future to thwart the virus. If she signs up for a one-way-trip into the future to work as a bonded laborer, the company will pay for the life-saving treatment Frank needs. Polly promises to meet Frank again in Galveston, Texas, where she will arrive in twelve years.
But when Polly is re-routed an extra five years into the future, Frank is nowhere to be found. Alone in a changed and divided America, with no status and no money, Polly must navigate a new life and find a way to locate Frank, to discover if he is alive, and if their love has endured.
