February New Books Megalist!

Okay, I think today might be the BEST new release day ever! *wriggle* There are sooooooo many incredible books out today, your brain – and your bank account – might melt from all the excitement. Thankfully, today is a megalist day, so you can check out a whole bunch of them down below. And you can hear about several of these books on this week’s episode of the All the Books! Rebecca and I talked about a few amazing books we loved, such as Pachinko, A Separation, and What You Don’t Know.

This week’s newsletter is sponsored by A Tragic Kind of Wonderful by Eric Lindstrom.

For Mel Hannigan, bipolar disorder makes life unpredictable. Her latest struggle is balancing her growing feelings in a new relationship with her instinct to conceal her diagnosis by keeping everyone at arm’s length. But when a former friend confronts Mel with the truth about the way their relationship ended, deeply buried secrets threaten to upend her shaky equilibrium.

As the walls of Mel’s compartmentalized world crumble, she fears that no one will accept her if they discover what she’s been hiding. But would her friends really abandon her if they learned the truth? More importantly, can Mel risk everything to find out?
