Happy #PubDay! (5/14/19)

A LibraryReads-winning rom-com + a speculative debut + an Indie Next Pick + a cinematic Reconstruction-era drama + a thriller/SF mash-up = a very merry #PubDay celebration!

RED, WHITE & ROYAL BLUE by Casey McQuiston

PW Best Book of the Summer + May LibraryReads Pick + Three starred reviews + June Indie Next Pick!

“The much-loved royal romance genre gets a fun and refreshing update in McQuiston’s debut…. A clever, romantic, sexy love story.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Readers will be eager to see more from McQuiston after this extremely promising start.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“In between sweet and steamy love scenes, RED, WHITE & ROYAL BLUE allows readers to imagine a world where coming out involves no self-loathing; where fan fiction and activist Twitter do actual good; and a diverse, liberal White House wins elections. This Blue Wave fantasy could be the feel-good book of the summer.”–Booklist, starred review

TEARS OF THE TRUFFLEPIG by Fernando A. Flores

“Packed with other striking images and clever details, like the three canyon-sized concrete barriers that separate the U.S. from Mexico (and still fail to curb migration), this wildly imaginative, highly addicting, and ultimately endearing speculative first novel offers borderlands storytelling with an sf twist.”–Booklist

LANNY by Max Porter

May Indie Next pick + Three starred reviews!

“This imaginative novel starts off dreamily, picks up speed, and races to a propulsive conclusion. A guaranteed edge-of-your-seat read.”–Library Journal, starred review

“This is a dark and thrilling excavation into a community’s legend-packed soil.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Elegantly mysterious: a story worthy of an M.R. James or even a Henry James and a welcome return by an author eminently worth reading.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

DAWSON’S FALL by Roxana Robinson

“A stylish and contemplative historical novel, considerate of facts but not burdened by them.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

LAST TANGO IN CYBERSPACE by Steven Kotler

“Reminiscent of Neal Stephenson’s SNOW CRASH, this near-futuristic setting for ancient connections somehow seem possible for our own future. Both thriller and sf, the latest from Kotler (TOMORROWLAND) is sure to please a broad range of readers. The characters are well-developed and ultimately ‘peeled to the core,’ which makes for a fascinating read. Highly recommended.”–Library Journal, starred review
