I’ve been putting off making my new ARC list because I got so enthusiastic in my ARC acquisition during the recent ALA conference in Atlanta that I had to ship most of them home. Unfortunately, one of the boxes I sent appears to have either gone missing or been lost/stolen. I received a letter from the USPS earlier this week that included the shipping label and both of the places where my address had been written on the box, cut off from the cardboard – quite clearly tampered with. I’m doing what little I can to try and recover it, but I’m not feeling terribly optimistic about it, and I’m quite disappointed by the apparent loss of close to 20 books. Though of course I still have PLENTY to read… So here’s the list as it stands, including those left over from the last batch.

  • The Second Mrs. Hockaday, by Susan Rivers (releases 1/10/17) Inspired by some real events, and the sometimes epistolary, sometimes diary or memory format made for an interesting structure.
  • Little Deaths, by Emma Flint (releases 1/17/17) Too bad COLD CASE is off the air. This woulda made a good episode.
  • The Young Widower’s Handbook, by Tom McAllister (releases 2/7/17) A realistic and compelling description of the stunned feeling that comes from a sudden death.
  • The Orphan’s Tale, by Pam Jenoff (releases 2/28/17) A different take on a WWII story, at least, but I’d give it a 3 out of 5.
  • Words Without Music, by Philip Glass (left over from previous haul, released April 2015)
  • She Came from Beyond!, by Nadine Darling (left over from previous haul, released October 2015)
  • The Body in the Wardrobe, by Katherine Hall Page A fun mystery. Part of a long-running series. If at some point I find myself needing something lightweight to read, maybe I’ll seek out more in the series.
  • My Husband’s Wife, by Jane Corry (releases 1/2017) A twisty turny dark story – darker than I expected, and more complicated than I expected as well. All shades of grey. Nobody’s really right and everyone’s kind of wrong.
  • Pachinko, by Min Jin Lee LOVED THIS. Follows multiple generations of a Korean family living under Japanese rule in the 20th century. Deals with different relationships to identity and to being “other.”
