I’m so excited to join in the cover reveal for The Blackout Book Club by Amy Lynn Green! This WWII novel, following a group of women involved in the home front war effort in Maine, releases in November. You can read more about it below!
If you've hung around here for a while, you know Amy Lynn Green's debut novel, Things We Didn't Say blew me away and still remains on my favorites list. Her second novel, The Lines Between Us, is one of the best examples of portraying multiple different belief systems equally.
So, as soon as I found out she had a new one coming out November 2022, I was immediately on board.
I mean, The Blackout Book Club. That, ladies and gentlemen, is an incredible title.
Oh, right, I said I'd let you read what it was about.
Plot Description: An impulsive promise to her brother before he goes off to the European Front puts Avis Montgomery in the unlikely position of head librarian in small-town Maine. Though she has never been much of a reader, when wartime needs threaten to close the library, she invents a book club to keep its doors open. The women she convinces to attend the first meeting couldn't be more different--a wealthy spinster determined to aid the war effort, an exhausted mother looking for a fresh start, and a determined young war worker.
At first, the struggles of the home front are all the club members have in common, but over time, the books they choose become more than an escape from the hardships of life and the fear of the U-boat battles that rage just past their shores. As the women face personal challenges and band together in the face of danger, they find they share more in common with each other than they think. But when their growing friendships are tested by secrets of the past and present, they must decide whether depending on each other is worth the cost.

Now that you have all the lovely details . . . the moment you've all been waiting for . . .
Would you look at that. It reminds me a lot of the cover of Things We Didn't Say in all the best ways.
That's all I have for you today! I hope you'll stay tuned with me for the release of The Blackout Book Club in November 2022!
I'm excited to join in the cover reveal for Shadow by Kara Swanson releasing July 2021 from Enclave Publishing in limited-edition hardcover! Shadow is the second book in the Heirs of Neverland duology which is a Peter Pan retelling/sequel.
I adored Dust, and have been waiting for news of the sequel! Spoilers for Book 1 abound below, so if you haven't read Book 1, check out the review here! https://racheljleitch.weebly.com/rachels-reads/dust-by-kara-swanson
Peter Pan has crash-landed back on Neverland. But this is not the island he remembers.
Desperate to rescue Claire and the fractured Lost Boys, Peter must unravel what truly tore his dreamland apart. But with each step, he is haunted by more of his own broken memories. Not even Pan himself is what he seems.
Claire Kenton is chained to a pirate ship, watching the wreckage of Neverland rocked by tempests. When she finally finds her brother, Connor is every bit as shattered as the island. Claire may have pixie dust flowing in her veins—but the light of Neverland is flickering dangerously close to going out forever.
To rescue Neverland from the inescapable shadow, the boy who never grew up and the girl who grew up too fast will have to sacrifice the only thing they have left: each other.
So without further ado . . . here's the cover! It's so cool!
Isn't it amazing?! You can preorder Shadow here! http://bit.ly/ShadowHeirsofNeverland
HOPE ANN HAS A NEW BOOK!
*composes herself* Happy Thanksgiving, by the way. And in keeping with the season, I have a little gift for you. The cover reveal to Hope Ann’s (aka one of my best friends) new book!
Are you ready for this? Alright. Here it comes!
When you defeat everything life hurls at you, it’s a perfectly legitimate move to rub your conquest in the faces of those who sneered at your suffering.
Rafe, a former street-lad who clawed his way to the glittering life of a story-actor, has been waiting. But from the moment he sprung from his carriage into the gritty dust of Cainth, life has not gone Rafe’s way.
Unexpectedly dragged into a web of greed, treachery, and stolen rift powers, Rafe intends to do what he has always done. Survive.
At least that was the plan before he accidentally protected a child.
Before he accidentally gained the powers of an immortal.
And before he caught himself accidentally slipping toward the deadliest mistake possible.
The mistake of letting one’s self care for another.
Welcome to the world of…
DUST TO FLAME
