Sunday Salon: New Galleys for Review

Welcome to the Sunday Salon! Also visit The Sunday Post hosted by The Caffeinated Bookreviewer; It's Monday: What Are You Reading? at Book Journey. Also, visit Mailbox Monday to see other bloggers' mailboxes each week.

Thanks to Harper Collins for sending the following galleys/uncorrected proofs for review:


The Story Hour
 "a profound, heartbreakingly honest novel about friendship, family, secrets, forgiveness, and second chances"



The Story of Land and Sea
"Set in a small coastal town in North Carolina during the waning years of the American Revolution, this incandescent debut novel follows three generations of family—fathers and daughters, mother and son, master and slave, characters who yearn for redemption amidst a heady brew of war, kidnapping, slavery, and love" 

Flings: Stories
 "a piercing collection of short fiction that illuminates our struggle to find love, comfort, and identity"
Eager to start these. What are you reading this week?

You always share the most amazing sounding books! You are giving me writers cramp writing them all down! ;-) All three of these sound like I need to put them on my TBR list! Thanks for sharing!

They all sound good to me. Enjoy!

The story of Land and Sea sounds really interesting to me as the America during the time of the Revolution is a source of endless fascination.

ENJOY your reading day if you are reading. Who doesn't read every day, though, right? :)
