So I only got one new book this week, but as far as I'm concerned it's the only one that matters- the ARC of A.S. Byatt's new novel, The Children's Book.
I have started reading it but at over 700 pages it will be awhile before I'm done!
It's being released in October and right now the plan is to write a review when I finish, then repost it when it's released along with a week of reviews of other Byatt novels and short story collections.
The book is already out in Britain and I know some of you have purchased the hardcover and I eagerly await your reviews, as well as reviews from those of you who have also received an ARC.
Certainly there are other upcoming releases that are exciting- Kazuo Ishiguro has a new collection of short stories coming out, Margaret Atwood has a new one soon as well- and while I'm certainly very interested in those, nothing for me can compare to a new Byatt. Thank you so much to Random House for sending me this book!
