As an avid reader, I’m always on the lookout for new releases books. I peruse the Goodreads newsletters. (and read them over and over again.) I join dozens of Facebook groups just to see if I’ve missed any ‘under the radar” books. I also subscribe to book blogs, because I feel that they are a wonderful platform for book lovers to share their two cents and chime in their thoughts on their favourite new releases books. To make things less daunting, I’ve compiled a short list of novels that were recently published.
To Rise Again at a Decent Hour by Joshua Ferris
Have you ever been a victim of identity theft? What’s the most severe outcome you can think of? A stolen credit card? In his latest novel, National Book Award finalist Joshua Ferris introduces us to Paul O’Rourke, a dentist and a wild Red Sox fan. What started out as a violation of his privacy soon evolves into something more chilling. If you would like to win a copy of To Rise Again at a Decent Hour, head down to Goodreads and enter the giveaway. Ends June 5, 2014.
Cutting Teeth by Julia Fierro
Cutting Teeth marks the debut novel of American author Julia Fierro. One of the new releases books in May, Cutting Teeth introduces and teaches readers about modern day parenting. It has received wonderful reviews from readers and authors like Jean Kwok (Girl in Translation) and Therese Ann Fowler (Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald). If you enjoy contemporary novels that center around family and romance, then you should probably pick this up during your next visit to the bookstore.
Console Wars by Blake Harris
Unlike the abovementioned new releases books, Console Wars falls in the non-fiction category. If you’re interested in learning more about the behind-the-scenes of Sega and Nintendo, this is going to be an interesting read. Trivia: Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are set to write and direct the film adaptation.
