Girl From Mars by Julie Cohen came from Amazon.
I found this British chick lit on Book Chick City through her interview with the author. I'd never heard of Cohen but the concept of a comic book fan girl who is resigned to being a single nerd finds love. I am not a comic fan myself but I married one so I do feel a certain affinity for them although I had, of course, always assumed their biggest audience was pre-teen boys. ::grin::
In a Perfect World by Laura Kasischke is from the Trish at TLC Book Tours.
While this book has the Phoenix flu rather than the swine flu, a tale of family, marriage, and relationships amidst the growing concern of a worldwide epidemic is frighteningly timely and should make for a good read. Plus I rather like the understated sort of sinisterness of the cover, sicko that I am.
Viola in Reel Life by Adriana Trigiani if from Book Club Girl.
I really enjoyed Trigiani's Big Stone Gap series and am looking forward to her first YA entry. The author will be discussing the book on air with Book Club Girl on Sept. 30 if you want to listen in (or call in or write in too).
