Wow, first post comes mid-month. Two ARCs today:

* _No Surrender: A Father, a Son, and an Extraordinary Act of Heroism that Continues to Live on Today_ by Chris Edmonds (pub 10/19; World War II history of Edmonds' father)

* The Widow of Pale Harbor by Hester Fox (pub 9/19; historical fiction)

Two whole boxes and two envelopes of ARCs came in today, but I contained myself....

Picked up Wilde in Love by Eloisa James and Brazen and the Beast by Sarah MacLean at Barnes & Noble yesterday. And I ordered The Body in the Library by Agatha Christie - I'll be starting my first reading of the Miss Marple series soon.

>2 LauraBrook: Marple's my favorite. Tommy & Tuppence next. I've never been big into Poirot. I have both Joan Hickson and Margaret Rutherford on DVD.

Bought An Enquiry Concerning Political Justice by William Godwin because I've begun reading Frankenstein or The Modern Prometheus: The 1818 Text by Mary Shelley. LOVE Broadview Press editions of classics. (So far I'm still in the introduction, but I'm supposed to be done by now and starting on my September classics book group title, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.)

And brought home an ARC (until I can check with a coworker to see if they want it): Ribbons of Scarlet: A Novel of the French Revolution's Women by Kate Quinn, Stephanie Dray, Laura Kamoie, Sophie Perinot, Heather Webb, and E. Knight. I work with someone who's a Kate Quinn fan. I did read and enjoy The Alice Network, but she's been reading Quinn for years.

A new Bess Crawford historical mystery series ARC called my name at work today: A Cruel Deception by Charles Todd will be published in October.

Okay. Do NOT like the new "I'm not a robot" thing, especially since according to what I heard on PBS, you're doing a company's AI work when you have to do it:

Anyway, I did give away Ribbons of Scarlet to the Kate Quinn (and apparently Stephanie Dray) fan. And the same day I picked up a contemporary novel based on alternate history in which George Washington decided to be a king rather than a president: American Royals by Katharine McGee.

Two more ARCs:
* The Good Luck Girls by Charlotte Nicole Davis (pub 10/19, YA fantasy)
* Supernova Era by Cixin Liu (pub 10/19, science fiction; a Chinese author published in the US in translation, so I had to check this one out)

And I bought a book at 50% off:
* This America: The Case for the Nation by Jill Lepore

>3 ReneeMarie: Joan Hickson is by far my favorite, but I like each Marple I've seen.

In the last couple of weeks I've purchased A Better Man by Louise Penny and Solitary Wicca for Life by Arin Murphy-Hiscock. And apparently it was just Buy A Friend A Book Day, so I've received The Book of Dust by Philip Pullman and Phantom Evil by Heather Graham from two friends.
