A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman came from Washington Square Press.
I've already reviewed this absolutely delightful novel here.
The Balance Project by Susie Orman Schnall came from Spark Press and BookSparks for a blog tour.
The assistant to a work-life balance author is the only thing keeping the balls in the air for her employer, at the expense of her own life. Since I think it's pretty nigh impossible to "have it all," I am very curious to see what happens when said assistant must make the decision between continuing on like this or letting a ball or two drop.
Fishbowl by Bradley Somer came from St. Martin's Press.
A goldfish decides to jump out of his bowl and as he plummets 27 stories toward the street, he gets a view into all the apartments he passes. Sounds quirky and fun, no?!
Eight Hundred Grapes by Laura Dave came from BookSparks PR for a blog tour.
About a woman who returns home to the family vineyard after discovering her fiancé has been keeping secrets only to find that everyone else has too, this sounds delicious.
In a Dark Wood by Joseph Luzzi came from Harper Wave and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.
This memoir about grief and Dante speaks to the literature student of my soul.
