New Books

First Tuesday of March Megalist!

I hope you got a lot of rest this weekend, because HOLY CATS there are a lot of amazing new releases today! It’s an epic day. And because I love you, I made you a big shiny list below, and you can hear about more amazing books on this week’s episode of the All the Books! Tirzah and I talked about The Manic Pixie Dream Boy Improvement Project, The Lady from the Black Lagoon, Survival Math, 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!)

Almost Home by Valerie Fraser Luesse and Revell Books, a Division of Baker Publishing Group

With America’s entrance into World War II, the town of Blackberry Springs, Alabama, has exploded virtually overnight. Workers from all over are coming south for jobs in Uncle Sam’s munitions plants—and they’re bringing their pasts with them, right into Dolly Chandler’s grand but fading family home turned boardinghouse. But the house has a past of its own. When tragedy strikes, Dolly’s only hope will be the circle of friends under her roof and their ability to discover the truth about what happened to a young bride who lived there a century before.
