My First ARC!

Today I looked in my mailbox found a cardboard package bearing the return address of Random House. My pen name was emblazoned across the address label.

What? Who? I opened it and to my delight I found an ARC(Advanced Reader's Edition) of Souvenir by Therese Fowler. I remember this book from my travels across the blog world, and I know I requested it on a list a few months ago. I didn't think I'd actually receive one, so the package today was a nice surprise.

Therese is a friend of a few of my blogging buddies. This is her debut novel, and it seems it's attracting a lot of attention already. Today is the official release date.

I scanned the first few pages and I'm hooked already. Excuse me while I read...

I am no longer an ARC virgin!

Alas, my ARC virginity is still intact (sigh....)

I've heard great things about this book! I can't wait to get a copy once we're back home!

I read it! I'm going to post a review soon. It is definitely a thought provoker and beautifully written.
