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

The May Indie Next list features five Macmillan titles including THE GUEST BOOK at #1!

1–THE GUEST BOOK by Sarah Blake

CAPE MAY by Chip Cheek

“This young couple’s September honeymoon in Cape May got so boring they almost went home early. If only…. The 1950s setting, the pellucid prose, and the propulsive plot make this very steamy debut novel about morality and desire feel like a classic.“–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Yes, betrayals are at the core of what happens at Cape May, but beyond that, this remarkable debut novel offers a sobering reminder of how the possibilities of life, when first encountered, often carry their own riptide.”–Booklist, starred review
