As I am in the process of cleaning up my desk/bookcases and organizing it all I discovered I got a book in the mail a little while ago and never shared it. I think it was sitting on the desk waiting to be documented and with the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season I never got to it so I will share it now.

Its The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda. Its scheduled to release April 2017.

In the masterful follow-up to the runaway hit All the Missing Girls—a “fiendishly plotted thriller” (Publishers Weekly)—a journalist sets out to find a missing friend, a friend who may never have existed at all.

Confronted by a restraining order and the threat of a lawsuit, failed journalist Leah Stevens needs to get out of Boston when she runs into an old friend, Emmy Grey, who has just left a troubled relationship. Emmy proposes they move to rural Pennsylvania, where Leah can get a teaching position and both women can start again. But their new start is threatened when a woman with an eerie resemblance to Leah is assaulted by the lake, and Emmy disappears days later.

Determined to find Emmy, Leah cooperates with Kyle Donovan, a handsome young police officer on the case. As they investigate her friend’s life for clues, Leah begins to wonder: did she ever really know Emmy at all? With no friends, family, or a digital footprint, the police begin to suspect that there is no Emmy Grey. Soon Leah’s credibility is at stake, and she is forced to revisit her past: the article that ruined her career. To save herself, Leah must uncover the truth about Emmy Grey—and along the way, confront her old demons, find out who she can really trust, and clear her own name.

Everyone in this rural Pennsylvanian town has something to hide—including Leah herself. How do you uncover the truth when you are busy hiding your own?

I am super excited to dig into this book asap because I read All The Missing Girls and really enjoyed it.

It seems like its been forever since I have posted a weekly mailbox post. I can’t even remember the last time I did this but I am super excited for this weeks book.

I was recently contacted by a pr firm asking if I would be interested in reading and reviewing this:

I instantly said yes because for my birthday I rec’ed her first book Passenger. Which I have been dying to read since it came out and I can’t wait for Christmas to come so that I can start this series.

Have you read Passenger? What did you think?

Its been so long since I have to post anything in a weekly spot. I was beyond thrilled when I got a package in the mail from Simon & Schuster Canada this week that I couldn’t wait to share this with you.

Pub Date: May 2017

About the Book:

Wonder meets Mark Haddon in the poignant and uplifting debut novel about superheroes, super-nurses, and the beauty you can find in hope.

Eleven-year-old Joe has never had a life outside of the hospital, with its beeping machines and view of London’s rooftops. His condition means he’s not allowed outside, not even for a moment, and his few visitors risk bringing life-threatening germs inside his bubble. Then a new nurse offers Joe the possibility of going outside. But Joe doesn’t know if the nurse is serious—or whether he could survive the adventure.

Bubble is the touching story of how Joe spends his days, copes with his loneliness and frustration, and looks—with superhero-style bravery, curiosity, and hope—to a future without limits.

I can’t wait to dig into this book. I am going to save it since its only being released in May but it will be hard because it sounds really good.

Have a good weekend everyone.
