In this delightful bookish world we all inhabit, we can count on a few things. There will be numerous new books featured on blogs every day. And how we get those books will vary.
For example, Amazon Vine has recently shaken up their site, to the delight of reviewers.
Yesterday a new system was in place. Instead of the bimonthly newsletter, we are now gifted with a Queue that we can log onto and view any day of the week or month. And select FIVE books. Unless, of course, we have overdue books not reviewed.
Not a problem.
Then there is Vine for All…we love this, as the books from this group do not affect the five we can have from the Queue.
Yesterday, I selected two books from my Queue…trying to cut down a bit. Let’s see how long that lasts, with a new gift available each day, possibly.

Natalie Haynes’ The Furies is a psychologically complex, dark and twisting novel about loss, obsession and the deep tragedies that can connect us to each other even as they blind us to our fate.
And then I picked Belzhar, by Meg Wolitzer, and those who know my taste must realize this is a little bit out of my comfort zone, but it’s Meg Wolitzer!
From New York Times bestselling author Meg Wolitzer comes a breathtaking and surprising story about first love, deep sorrow, and the power of acceptance.
