New Books

First Tuesday of October Megalist!

Happy first Tuesday! I feel like every Tuesday is a holiday because of all the new books. OMG WE SHOULD GET CAKE. Who can I talk to about this??? But back to books – you can hear about several of today’s new books on this week’s episode of the All the Books! María Cristina and I talked about a few amazing books we loved, including The Oyster Thief, Sawkill GirlsOn a Sunbeam, and more.

(And like with each megalist, I’m putting a ❤️ next to the books that I have read and loved. But there are soooo many more on this list that I can’t wait to read!)
