Dog Crazy by Meg Donohue came from William Morrow and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.
I am owned by dogs so I am a huge sucker for books with dogs on the cover. This one about a pet bereavement counselor who searches for a dog that has been stolen, learning about love in the process, looks right up my alley.
My Own Miraculous by Joshilyn Jackson came from Joshilyn Jackson herself. (It also arrived with two small tins: bourbon smoked sea salt and bourbon smoked paprika. Yum!)
I won a contest on Jackson's Facebook page and this short story and the bourbon smoked goodies was my prize. That it is a companion piece to Someone Else's Love Story, focusing on Natty from that novel, is icing on the cake.
The Year of Reading Dangerously by Andy Miller came from Harper Perennial.
A memoir about reading and the way that those fifty two books transformed Miller's life is just exactly the sort of read I love.
Lizzy and Jane by Katherine Reay came from me because I was already ordering Christmas presents and decided I needed it.
Two sisters named for Austen's heroines, one of whom comes home to care for the other when she is diagnosed with cancer, this sounds like a very interesting Austen inspired story.
