Maybe We'll Make It: A Memoir (American Music Series) By Margo Price Cover Image
$27.95
ISBN: 9781477323502
Availability: Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
Published: University of Texas Press - October 4th, 2022

"Almost a real life version of the tv show Nashville, Price's memoir is extremely enthralling and entertaining. Margo Price has lived enough lifetimes for us all, and the story of her life is almost unbelievable. This book is terrifically readable and at times, heart wrenching; you're sure to love it."

– Mallory

"Margo Price is the real deal. Her classic country voice is the exact sound you’d expect to hear walking by a honky tonk bar. She belts out timeless, original songs like she’s been doing it for 50 years. Her midwest farmer’s daughter story is brutally honest, and resonated with this southern plumber’s daughter much more than I ever expected. Successes earned through failures. Independent and stubborn– always paving her own way. And giving away anything extra along the way– from whiskey to a couch to crash on. She is a fighter, survivor, badass, and a much needed progressive voice in the country music scene."

– Charley

"Maybe We'll Make It takes you on the wild ride of Price's life and her passion for music. From her struggles with substance abuse to her dogged pursuit of creative endeavors to finally her big break, Price's memoir is a rollercoaster of highly entertaining and poignant stories. Price's love for her work fills the pages, and anyone who is interested in country music should read this book."

Secrets of the Nile: A Lady Emily Mystery (Lady Emily Mysteries #16) By Tasha Alexander Cover Image
$27.99
ISBN: 9781250819697
Availability: Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
Published: Minotaur Books - October 4th, 2022

"Things I liked: everything! The setting (near and dear to my history nerd heart), the twist at the end, but most especially, I love, love, LOVE the references to Elizabeth Peters's characters!! Didn't like: the fact that I broke one of my own cardinal rules of reading: never read a book in a series unless you've read all the ones before it. Now I have to- strike that... now I GET to go back and do that!"

Yours Cruelly, Elvira: Memoirs of the Mistress of the Dark By Cassandra Peterson Cover Image
$17.99
ISBN: 9780306874383
Availability: Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
Published: Hachette Books - October 4th, 2022

"Being a goth, there is no one I looked up to more than Elvira. I grew up watching reruns of her movies and show with a grungy older sister who went through her "goth" phase and had to babysit me but refused to put on Disney. I got to walk through the life of my biggest Idol and was spared no details! The amount of times I audibly said "WHAT THE ****?!" while reading was absolutely laughable but in a good way, there are so many crazy, insane stories in the book that it would make the devil blush! Fingers crossed I can meet her someday and have her sign my copy!!!"

Our Missing Hearts: A Novel By Celeste Ng Cover Image
$29.00
ISBN: 9780593492543
Availability: Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
Published: Penguin Press - October 4th, 2022

"This book, a departure from Ng's previous style and topic, is achingly beautiful. She masterfully crafts a dystopic world and builds characters that the reader can't but help to connect to and root for. The writing is sparse and delicate, the story an intense tale of motherhood and language. I was captivated until the deeply devastating end."

The Hero of This Book: A Novel By Elizabeth McCracken Cover Image
$26.99
ISBN: 9780062971272
Availability: Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
Published: Ecco - October 4th, 2022

"Besides the fact that McCracken can lay down a sentence so satisfying you want to read it three times over just to feel it again, like running your hands over a plush velvet throw, the exercise this book takes you through is so perfectly balanced, so gentle and yet striking. I say exercise because that's what it feels like, in the way Didion may exercise your grief for you through magical thinking, McCracken does all the heavy lifting here so you are allowed to sit back and ride. Much like the described "foot jack" her character has created in order to propel her mother up stairs, step by step, every chapter of this book feels like an ascension to this greater understanding of self and world and not just grief but what comes before it, after it, why it's important and when it's relevant. Also, I'm kind of obsessed with McCracken's purely uncanny ability to describe the detritus of opened food containers: The "humors of the condiments," "gummy dark ketchup, gluey mustard, phlegmatic mayonnaise." I still sometimes think about the way she once described an abandoned Mrs. Butterworth's bottle as "sticky, debased, a crime victim." This was from her collection THUNDERSTRUCK, but just saying, she can throw it down."

Crossroads: A Novel By Jonathan Franzen Cover Image
$20.00
ISBN: 9781250858702
Availability: Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
Published: Picador - October 4th, 2022

"I love reading about families, and getting to see POVs from multiple people and generations in the family is so fascinating to me. Franzen has crafted an incredible novel. I really enjoyed the fact that each member of the family has absolutely no clue what is going on with the other members of the family. Everyone is stuck in their own world, absolutely absorbed with their own problems and pasts. So, so good!"
