New release Tuesday 🥳 Thank you so much to the tagged publishers for sending me these #gifted copies!! Here are the books that released today that I’m super excited about 👇🏾 — SPEAK, OKINAWA // Elizabeth Miki Brina: A searing, deeply candid memoir about a young woman's journey to understanding her complicated parents--her mother an Okinawan war bride, her father a Vietnam veteran--and her own, fraught cultural heritage. Clear-eyed and profoundly humane, Speak, Okinawa is a startling accomplishment--a heartfelt exploration of identity, inheritance, forgiveness, and what it means to be an American. — HONEY GIRL // Morgan Rogers: With her newly completed PhD in astronomy in hand, twenty-eight-year-old Grace Porter goes on a girls' trip to Vegas to celebrate. She's a straight A, work-through-the-summer certified high achiever. She is not the kind of person who goes to Vegas and gets drunkenly married to a woman whose name she doesn't know...until she does exactly that. But when reality comes crashing in, Grace must face what she's been running from all along--the fears that make us human, the family scars that need to heal and the longing for connection, especially when navigating the messiness of adulthood. I read this one for #ForTheLoveOfDiversity readathon and absolutely loved it! — THE SLAUGHTERMAN’S DAUGHTER // Yaniv Iczkovits: Yaniv Iczkovits spins a family drama into a far-reaching comedy of errors that will pit the czar's army against the Russian secret police and threaten the very foundations of the Russian Empire. The Slaughterman's Daughter is a rollicking and unforgettable work of fiction. — INFINITE COUNTRY // Patricia Engel: Rich with Bogotá urban life, steeped in Andean myth, and tense with the daily reality of the undocumented in America, Infinite Country is the story of two countries and one mixed-status family--for whom every triumph is stitched with regret, and every dream pursued bears the weight of a dream deferred. INFINITE COUNTRY is also @literaryleague March book pick! (This one was originally set to release today but it will be available March 2!) Which new release are you most excited to read?
