What's on the cover: the semi-healthy edition!

Can't seem to shake this cold. I woke up Wednesday with chills and a sore throat, and I was completely dazed when I went to work. How I got through that shift I don't know. I'm somewhat better, but not all the way there yet. Because of this my reading pace has slowed a little bit. It's hard to read in between sneezes and coughing. But there will be a review of Gar Fish & Long Gravy up by Thursday or Friday. And I'm hoping to have a review of By Fire By Water up by next week.

So on to the business at hand. Here's the cover of the next book on my list:

Under the Mercy Trees: A Novel

Under the Mercy Trees by Heather Newton. It doesn't come out until January, but thanks to HarperCollins I have a copy. It's a family drama, which I'm always drawn to. I'm guessing the girl in that cover is trying to get away from it all or maybe she is trying to start fresh. That picture is very inviting, I could use some quiet time by a lake. What's the big family drama? Is there a big secret? Are they being torn apart? Can't wait to find out.


  1. The cover of this looks fantastic! I hope you feel better and that the book helps ease you out of the bad cold misery!

  2. Thanks. I'm almost there. The nagging cough just won't go away. I started the book, and it definitely isn't what I was thinking. There's family drama and then some, and I'm only about 50 pages in.
