Happy #BookBday (7/14/15 Edition)

Extra special #BookBday wishes for these two debuts:

THE WATCHMAKER OF FILIGREE STREET by Natasha Pulley
Pulley’s literary historical fantasy about a genius watchmaker who can “remember” the future and uses it to help a 17th century London telegraphist is a Summer/Fall 2015 Indies Introduce pick, a Publishers Weekly Best of Summer 2015 selection, and has THREE starred reviews:
“Pulley’s electrifying debut is a triumph of speculative fiction.” Publishers Weekly, starred & boxed review

“Clever and engaging, this impressive first novel will reward both casual readers looking for a fun period adventure and those fascinated by the tension between free will and fate.” Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Addictively immersive, Pulley’s narrative is as clever and spry as the watchmaker’s creations.”Library Journal, starred review

PRETTY IS by Maggie Mitchell
A fiercely inspired first novel in which two young women—an actress and an academic—face what really happened the summer they were twelve, when a handsome stranger abducted them.
Psychologically rich, with haunting detail, Mitchell’s work is a disturbing, insightful look at our deep fears.” — Publishers Weekly

“…Mitchell is on her way to a place at the femmes fatales fiction dais with Megan Abbott, Gillian Flynn, Tana French, and Sharon Bolton.” — Library Journal
