Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 27/6/22

Not as much reading for pleasure this week, but that just means I have some great reads ahead:

Girls They Write Songs About by Carlene Bauer (available 5th July) arrived thanks to Bloomsbury. Set in 1990s New York, Charlotte and Rose become friends as they make their way through their lives. As they get older, will they give up on their dreams that held them together?

They’re Going to Love You by Meg Howrey (available 1st November) was also from Bloomsbury. Also set in New York, but in the world of professional dance, it’s about Carlisle who longs to stay with her father and his partner in Greenwich Village. AIDS devastates the local community and a love affair causes a rift that continues through their lives.

Girl, Forgotten by Karin Slaughter (available 6th July) arrived thanks to Harper Collins. A murder of a teenager on prom night remains unsolved 40 years later, but Andrea arrives in town with a secret agenda – find Emily’s killer before it’s too late for her.

Counterfeit by Kirsten Chenis about Ava, who has a picture-perfect life that is incredibly boring. When her old roommate Winnie returns to town with the real perfect life, she asks Ava for one favour, that turns deeper and deeper. Will Ava risk it all?
