New ARCs for review:

The Wife, The Maid, and the Mistress by Ariel Lawhon (Doubleday).

Twelve-year-old William Eng, a Chinese-American boy, has lived at Seattle’s Sacred Heart Orphanage since his mother’s death five years ago.

Set in the Great Depression and the 1920s. (Goodreads)

Love All by Callie Wright ( Henry Holt).
Love, fidelity, sports, and growing up when you least expect it, told through the irresistible voices of three generations, Set in New York in 1994. (Goodreads)

Mrs. Poe by Lynn Cullen (Gallery Books).
A vivid and compelling novel about a woman who becomes entangled in an affair with Edgar Allan Poe—at the same time she becomes the unwilling confidante of his much-younger wife. Set in 1845, New York. (Goodreads)

Anton and Cecil: Cats at Sea by Lisa Martin and Valerie Martin (Algonquin Young Readers)
A swashbuckling story of two very different cat brothers and their adventures at sea. For ages 8-12. 

and a paperback:

Finding Colin Firth by Mia March (Simon & Schuster)

Those so many books here I'd love to read! I've been lusting over Finding Colin Firth and Mrs Poe for a while now. And while it's new to me, think I'd really enjoy The Wife, The Maid, and the Mistress.

Looks to be a good bunch of books.

Mrs. Poe looks very interesting. Edger Allan Poe was such an intriguing but troubled character.
