Weekly Update

Ah, my virtual life. I had a very busy --- and fun --- weekend at the events for the Morristown Festival of Books. I enjoyed interviewing Kristin Hannah and Nadia Owusu, and then attending the programs with David Michaelis being interviewed by Bill Goldstein and V.E. Schwab in conversation with Dhionelle Clayton. I heard from many of our readers who attended the programs, which I got such a kick out of. The virtues of virtual is that you can be anywhere and attend. I really love this!

On Sale This Week

In this newsletter, you will find books releasing the weeks of February 22nd and March 1st 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 "What's Your Book Group Reading This Month?" contest on ReadingGroupGuides.com, where three book groups will win 12 copies of Julia Kelly's latest novel, THE LAST GARDEN IN ENGLAND. Fellow bestselling author Fiona Davis says that the book "encompasses everything I love in historical fiction: a dramatic setting depicted so vividly I could’ve sworn I was strolling through the gardens of Highbury House as I turned the pages, and a series of stories that intertwine each other effortlessly, echoing the theme of love lost and found. A delight." The deadline for your entries is Wednesday, March 3rd at noon ET. THE LAST GARDEN IN ENGLAND was one of the top five most anticipated books from readers who attended our “Bookaccino Live” event in January.

Also, we are sharing Carol's latest "Bookreporter Talks To" interview with Jane Harper, who joined us from Australia to talk about her new thriller, THE SURVIVORS, which is an upcoming Bookreporter.com Bets On pick. Setting has a strong influence on Jane's work, and she talked about exploring Tasmania as part of her research process. Humorously, the setting had Carol looking at maps as she confessed to having no idea where Tasmania sat in reference to Australia and New Zealand. Jane also discussed how she develops her plot and characters, the survivor statues that figure in the book, and the movie adaptation of THE DRY, which was recently released in Australia. Click here to watch the video and here to listen to the podcast.

Finally, on Monday, March 1st at 8pm ET, Carol will be moderating a Women’s History Month Extravaganza with author guests Lauren Willig (BAND OF SISTERS), Marie Benedict (THE MYSTERY OF MRS. CHRISTIE), Kristin Harmel (THE BOOK OF LOST NAMES), and Vanessa Riley (ISLAND QUEEN). Click here for more info about the event and how to get a ticket.
