The Race Underground by Doug Most came from St. Martin's Press.
Have you ever wondered about subways? They seem like slightly scary places to me so I'm very curious to read this book about two brothers, two cities, and everything that came together to create the subway system we still use today.
My Mother's Funeral by Adriana Paramo came from CavanKerry Press and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.
Mother and daughters, a different culture (Colombian), and memoir. What a great combination, no?
Under Magnolia by Frances Mayes came from Crown.
The South is definitely a different sort of place and I am very curious to see how Mayes, who is well known for her memoirs of living in Tuscany, recounts her early life in Georgia.
