I got books and cookies and wine koozies and bookmarks and all the ugly and wonderful things.
Literally so obsessed with all four of these novels. But I want to take a moment to discuss something very serious before I list the titles: The buying and selling of ARCs (advanced reader’s copies).
I didn’t realize this was something you shouldn’t do until I read something about it on Twitter. Not only are these ARCs not official copies and still subject to change, the author also sees no money from it. So if you want to buy the book and can’t wait to get it, I would suggest you reach out to the publisher and ask for an ARC. But if they say no, just wait with the rest of everybody else. You want to support the author, so buy the actual book from your local bookstore.
