Happy #BookBday (Cinco de Mayo Edition)

This tiny little hedgehog is ready for Cinco de Mayo, and so are we! Grab a bowl of chips & guac, mix your best margarita (if you’re so inclined) and relax with one of these new releases:

THE ART OF BAKING BLIND by Sarah Vaughan
A delicious and heartfelt debut in which five amateur bakers compete in a baking competition only to discover that the recipe for happiness may not be so easy to follow. “It’s the baking that makes the book rise, and readers will be salivating over descriptions of Victoria sponge, Battenburg cake, Chelsea buns, and other treats.” — Booklist

HUGO & ROSE by Bridget Foley
A beautifully imagined debut novel about a housewife who’s dreamt of the same man every night her entire life—until she has a chance meeting with him in the real world. “Foley’s imaginative and insightful novel will hold readers spellbound as it builds to a stunning conclusion.” — Booklist, starred review readmoreremove
