Giveaway: March and April Books We are Looking Forward to Reading

Every two months, we're featuring EIGHT books we're interested in checking out. (We know there are many, many more, but we're just highlighting a few that haven't received their time in the spotlight yet.) Here are the books we've chosen for March and April. There is one copy of each book available to give away and we will choose FOUR winners to each receive TWO books at random.

See our previous bi-monthly posts for some other great reads you might have missed.


March:

Close Enough to Touch 
by Colleen Oakley (March 7th)

This sounds like a unique love story. Can you imagine being allergic to other people?!? Perfect for fans of Jojo Moyes and Jodi Picoult.

*Thanks to Gallery Books for the giveaway copy.

A Bridge Across the Ocean 
by Susan Meissner (March 14th)

Her previous novel was a hit, so we're excited to see what is in store for us this year. Such a gorgeous cover too!

*Thanks to Berkley for the giveaway copy.


Every Wild Heart 
by Meg Donohue (March 14th)

Amy and some of our reviewers have enjoyed Meg's previous novels, and this one sounds intriguing. The teen character definitely appeals to Melissa A.

*Thanks to William Morrow for the giveaway copy.

Almost Missed You 
by Jessica Strawser (March 28th)

This sounds like an intense domestic drama and we can't wait to see what's between the covers.

*Thanks to St. Martin's Press for the giveaway copy.

April:


The Widow of Wall Street 
by Randy Susan Meyers (April 11th)

Randy has had us anticipating this novel since the end of last year. The story sounds intriguing and the cover stands out, even with only having two colors.

*Thanks to Atria for the giveaway copy.

White Sand, Blue Sea by Anita Hughes (April 11th)

Pack your swimsuits and sunscreen...Anita is about to take us on another exotic adventure!

*Thanks to St. Martin's Press for the giveaway copy.

One Good Thing by Wendy Wax 
(April 25th)

While it is part of the Ten Beach Road series, it could be read as a stand-alone. Great for a pre-summer escape read!

*Thanks to Berkley for the giveaway copy.

The Forever Summer by Jamie Brenner (April 25th)

Perfect for your beach bag this summer! Jamie's previous novel was a hit with readers last year, and we have a feeling this one will be too!

*Thanks to Little, Brown for the giveaway copy.

There are so many good books on the list. but the first one I would go for would be Anita Hughes' book. When I pick up one of her books, I always know I will be in for something great. I love how she writes books set in exotic locations that I can only dream about going to. So, it's like a little vacation to me.
