I have some really big news that I wanted to share BUT I got locked out of my Facebook so I wasn't able to last night. And my Instagram is connected to FB which is really what I was trying to get on.
Anywho, I came home last night to a package. A book package. Keep in mind, I don't request a lot of physical ARCs because I always thought that I would never get them, but I decided to go for it with a few publishers. Now, I've been expecting a book from Blogging for Books so I was just like, "Wow, this came pretty fast!" I was so excited to open it, and guess what it was? It wasn't the book from Blogging for Books.
It was an ARC.
An ARC that I requested from a publisher.
An ARC that I requested from a publisher on November 4 and received it on November 9. (SO VERY FAST!)
This is all very exciting for me and I love it! Here's what I received in case you were wondering:
When you open up, who will you let in?I am so excited and thankful for this copy! I started reading it yesterday, and I love it so far!
When Alex Morris loses her fiancé in dreadful circumstances, she moves from London to Edinburgh to make a break with the past. Alex takes a job at a Pupil Referral Unit, which accepts the students excluded from other schools in the city. These are troubled, difficult kids and Alex is terrified of what she's taken on.
There is one class - a group of five teenagers - who intimidate Alex and every other teacher on The Unit. But with the help of the Greek tragedies she teaches, Alex gradually develops a rapport with them. Finding them enthralled by tales of cruel fate and bloody revenge, she even begins to worry that they are taking her lessons to heart, and that a whole new tragedy is being performed, right in front of her...
Special thanks to: St. Martin's Press
I will add all of the other books that I received this week on next week's Mailbox Monday post! (If I remember that is.)
