Mrs. Poe by Lynn Cullen came from Gallery Books.
A fictionalization of the relationship between Edgar Allen Poe, fellow poet Frances Osgood, and Poe's young and frail wife, I can't wait to read about the illicit affair and the twisted web they wove.
The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. by Adelle Waldman came from Henry Holt.
A chronicle of failed relationships as they define a young man on the verge of publishing his first book, I am curious to see how a book about a royal jerk will sustain itself for the length of a novel.
Antigua and My Life Before by Marcela Serrano came from me for me.
A novel about the bonds of women's friendship told by one friend after the shocking and violent death of the other, this promises to be a thought-provoking read.
The House Girl by Tara Conklin came from William Morrow.
How many slaves were artists whose masters and mistresses took the credit for their works? This novel about a modern day young woman possibly discovering this very situation and looking for a face to put on her quest for reparations should be intriguing indeed.
Equilibrium by Lorrie Thomson came from the author and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.
I can't imagine how hard it would be to be a widow with two teenagers, one who is going a little wild and testing some boundaries and the other starting to manifest signs of his father's bipolar disorder. Add in a potential love interest to the mix and I'm sold.
