Weekly Update

In the midst of a very crazy busy week, I took an evening on Wednesday to kick it back a notch and just savor the arrival of summer. The weather was spectacular, and it was wonderfully restorative to just sit outside and watch evening envelop the patio. I was so relaxed until I realized that I had failed to leave on lights in the kitchen or on the patio, or to turn the pool light on (I am out of practice on what one does on a summer evening). Thus I was trying to navigate my way back to the house, in the dark, without falling into the pool. I crashed into the hibiscus plants a few times as I shimmied my way away from the water’s edge.

On Sale This Week

In this newsletter, you will find books releasing the weeks of June 19th and June 26th that we think will be of interest to Bookreporter.com readers, along with Bonus News, where we call out a contest, feature or review that we want to let you know about so you have it on your radar.

This week, we are calling attention to our review of MATCHUP, a collection of short stories edited by Lee Child in which 11 female thriller writers (including Sandra Brown, Kathy Reichs and Diana Gabaldon) are paired with 11 male thriller writers (including John Sandford, C.J. Box and Nelson DeMille) to solve a crime with their iconic characters matched up.

We also have two contests to tell you about on ReadingGroupGuides.com.

We are celebrating the recent paperback release of ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE --- Anthony Doerr's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II --- with a special contest that will give three groups the chance to win 12 copies of the book. Enter by Monday, July 10th at noon ET.

June's "What's Your Book Group Reading This Month?" contest book is THE HAMILTON AFFAIR by Elizabeth Cobbs, which is now available in paperback and tells the sweeping, tumultuous, true story of Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler --- from passionate and tender beginnings to his fateful duel on the banks of the Hudson River. In a book group? Then tell us what your group is currently reading to be eligible to win. Three winners will be selected, and each will be awarded 12 copies of the book for their group. Enter by Monday, July 10th at noon ET.

Finally, we are thrilled to announce our first Thriller Book Cover Survey on Bookreporter.com, where we are looking for your thoughts on two potential book covers for MISTER TENDER'S GIRL by Carter Wilson, a ripped-from-the-headlines thriller coming out in February 2018.
