Faith Bass Darling's Last Garage Sale by Lynda Rutledge came from Megan at Amy Einhorn Books.
The richest woman in a small Texas town decides to sell all of her worldy possessions, including priceless heirlooms for a pittance. How can this not be intriguing?!
The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan came from Picador because I won their Facebook fan page giveway.
A tale of love told entirely as dictionary entries? I completely and totally love these unusual sorts of narrative when they are well done and Levithan should be able to pull this off.
The Receptionist by Janet Groth came from Algonquin Books.
A memoir written by a longtime New Yorker receptionist who dreamed of being a writer herself one day, the story of her time there and the literary lions she knew so well sounds completely fascinating.
A Wedding in Haiti by Julia Alvarez came from Algonquin Books.
A very personal work about Alvarez's relationships with her parents, her husband, and a Haitian boy she meets and to whom she makes the promise that she will attend his wedding, I believe this one will be a tour de force.
