Soooo… What has been the ARC damage since my last STS post four weeks ago? Well… My recent NG diet clearly wasn’t ment to last forever haha. It all started with the unexpected approval of one of my most anticipated releases… Fredrik Backman is one of my absolute favorite authors, so of course I read The Winners almost as soon as it appeared on my kindle. Then I ended up giving in to the invitation to read the newest Mermaids Point sequel because I always enjoy her books… After that, the Harlequin autumn/winter blog tour invitations entered my email, and I went a bit overboard with especially the thriller one. Whoops? I guess I won’t be reaching that 100% ratio again any time soon. xD
I tend to enjoy Lisa Unger’s books, so of course I couldn’t resist getting a copy of her newest. Add the fact that it’s a locked room mystery and I can’t wait to read it! I liked the sound of The Personal Assistant and I’ve enjoyed her books in the past, so I had to add it as well… The same goes for Amber Garza, and the blurb of A Mother Would know sounds great too. Sometimes People Die also appealed to me with its medical angle.
I only got one historical fiction title for now; mostly because I already have a huge pile of ARCs pending before the end of 2022. I couldn’t resist this WWII story set in The Netherlands though… In a city not far from where I was born in fact; I do hope the fact that Haarlem is referred to as a small town (which it’s not) isn’t a sign of shabby research though. Anyhow, once I started requesting again, I guess there was no stopping… And it made me add The Second Stranger because I love a thriller with a secluded setting. The same goes for The Summer Party, but for the Australian setting. Whoops?
This was not all of course… Against expectations, I was actually approved for ANOTHER most anticipated release: the newest Aaron Falk sequel. And I couldn’t resist the invite to read Ashes In The Snow either; both because it’s WWII fiction and it means one more translation I’m reading no matter what before the end of 2022. Last but not least, I saw a review mention the serial killer angle in The Lucky One, and of course I had to use my Bookouture auto-approval to get a copy even though it was due soon.
