Two stacks of old and new ARCs materialized at work, and I grabbed only one item: Fruit of the Drunken Tree by Ingrid Rojas Contreras, a contemporary novel that came out in July.

A bunch more ARCs showed up, and I grabbed 3 of them:

* Unsheltered by Barbara Kingsolver (pub date 10/18; I've never read Kingsolver, but this looks AMAZING -- a character struggling, like so many are in today's US, but with a tie to the past, a la Kate Morton or Carol Goodman or Susanna Kearsley; #resist)
* Marilla of Green Gables by Sarah McCoy (pub date 10/18; what Marilla's life was that led her to become the spinster guardian of Anne Shirley; I've read Anne, and Emily, and Jane, and Kilmeny, and Story Girl, and ...)
* The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi (pub date 1/19; this is YA fantasy -- I haven't read her teen novels, but I just read the juvenile novel Aru Shah and the End of Time and enjoyed it even in its Disneyesqueness; and OMG what a lovely cover the ARC has)

Maybe you can tell I'm really excited about the titles I picked up today.... I'm also excited because by putting a touchstone around Kearsley's name, I found out she has a book newly released in the US this month: Bellewether! Wahoo!

3 ARCs today.

One is strange in that the letter that came with the ARC is dated 6/17, when the hardcover released. The paperback, however, has a 10/18 release: The Prisoner in His Palace by Will Bardenwerper.

The other two are historical fiction, both due to be published 10/18:
* The Lighthouse Keeper's Daughter by Hazel Gaynor
* When the Men Were Gone by Marjorie Herrera Lewis

I did buy the new Susanna Kearsley, Bellewether. And brought home 3 ARCs, all due to be published in September, the 3rd of which I had let sit for several days to see if anybody else would want it:

* The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker (when I saw who wrote it, I just grabbed it; turns out it's set during the Trojan War)
* Sweep: The Story of a Girl and Her Monster by Jonathan Auxier (children's fantasy fiction)
* Lake Success by Gary Shteyngart (contemporary fiction about the 0.1 percent, with a hedge fund manager for the "hero")

Another ARC: A Place for Us by Fatima Farheen Mirza. It's contemporary fiction that was released in June.
