saturday shout out

carpe librum 

 seize the book!  What a great thought.

Welcome book lovers 

i'm trying something different week and rather than an "scoop" on something book related - i'm giving "shout out"

today's "shout out" goes to 

St. Martin's Press

so many freaking amazing titles and authors! especially since a few of my very favorite books from last year were published by them! and perhaps i'm a bit biased as they have been VERY generous with all the ARC's they have allowed me to read and review including this one from last year: 

yeah. this one...OMFG...this one!

MEET HANNA: Seven-year-old Hanna is a sweet-but-silent angel in the eyes of her adoring father Alex. He’s the only person who understands her. But her mother Suzette stands in her way, and she’ll try any trick she can think of to get rid of her. Ideally for good.

MEET SUZETTE: Suzette loves her daughter, but after years of expulsions and strained home schooling, her precarious health and sanity are weakening day by day. She’s also becoming increasingly frightened by Hanna’s little games, while her husband Alex remains blind to the failing family dynamics. Soon, Suzette starts to fear that maybe their supposedly innocent baby girl may have a truly sinister agenda.
