New Releases: May 29th
Probable Claws by Rita Mae Brown & Sneaky Pie Brown
I'm picking this based entirely on the title. I've not read a single Rita Mae and Sneaky Pie Brown book, but I love the cat pun titles and it's adorable, and borderline insane, that Rita Mae gives co-author credit to her cat, Sneaky Pie.
Also, this New York Times review:
“As feline collaborators go, you couldn’t ask for better than Sneaky Pie Brown.”
—The New York Times Book Review
This review is the "but they have a great personality" of book reviews and I'm here for it.
For me, summer is all about fun, easy reads. So, maybe it's the summer of Sneaky Pie.
So Close to Being the Shit,Ya'll Don't Even Know by Retta
Any book written by Donna Meagle is a book for me. Best known for her portrayal of Donna in Parks and Recreation, Retta began her career as a stand up comedian with dreams of starring in her own Lucille Ball-esque sitcom. A collection of hilarious essays, So Close is Retta's story of rising to semi-fame in her own words. And it's going to be my next treat yourself gift. May 29, 2018, it's the best day of the year!
Black Book by James Patterson & David Ellis
I didn't comb the entire list, but I think this is his only release next week. And it's not even new. It's a paperback release of a previous release. Which means we should be in for a real treat next week. Like Rita Mae, Jimmy Pat has a co-author for this one. I don't know who David Ellis is, but I think he's a human. Speaking of humans, I didn't know JP had a sci-fi book. It's called Bow Down, Humans. Fitting.
Our pick of the week:
Calypso by David Sedaris
David Sedaris is back with yet another collection of hilarious essays.
And, as always, when David gets brought up, I have to remind everyone of that one time he liked my eyebrows.
So, whether essays or mysteries are your jam, there's something for you next week. There are also a healthy number of books featuring shirtless men coming out next week.
