Y’all already know this is my favorite week of each season – a week of posts about the upcoming new releases that I’m excited about!! Historical fiction day is always one of my fave posts because of the GORGEOUS COVERS!!
Here is the schedule of posts so you can catch up on what you’ve missed & zero in on your fave genre!
(And stay tuned for New Year’s Week when I break down my FAVE READS of 2017!)

- Across the Blue by Carrie Turansky – I always love Carrie’s perspective on the Edwardian era & I always learn something too!
- Silent Song of Winter by Robin E. Mason – Robin’s stories are always beautifully layered & I really love her genteel Southern writing voice.

Which books am I most excited about for April?
