Well, I clearly have no self-control. Despite the growing pile of books on my TBR shelf, I couldn’t resist a virtual visit to Netgalley last night… these new releases just looked too good to pass up.
Nightcrawling by Leila Mottley
“A dazzling, unforgettable novel about a young black woman who walks the streets of Oakland and stumbles headlong into the failure of its justice system—a debut that announces a blazingly original voice.”
Pub Date 07 Jun 2022
The early reviews in for this are excellent, so I’m hoping my reading experience is just as positive.
Our Wives Under the Sea by Julia Armfield
“Fathomlessly inventive and original, Julia Armfield’s Our Wives Under the Sea is a portrait of marriage as we’ve never seen it before.”
Pub Date (US) 12 Jul 2022
I love this cover, what can I say.
All the Lovers in the Night by Mieko Kawakami
“Bestselling author of Breasts and Eggs Mieko Kawakami invites readers back into her immediately recognizable fictional world with this new, extraordinary novel and demonstrates yet again why she is one of today’s most uncategorizable, insightful, and talented novelists.”
Pub Date 03 May 2022
I’ve not read Breast and Eggs (what a title) but I’ve heard good things so hoping I enjoy this one.
The Fell by Sarah Moss
“From the award-winning author of Ghost Wall and Summerwater, Sarah Moss’s The Fell is a riveting novel of mutual responsibility, personal freedom, and the ever-nearness of disaster.”
Pub Date 01 Mar 2022
I loved Summerwater so I’m looking forward to diving back into Sarah Moss’s evocative and descriptive prose.

Do you have better self control than I do when it comes to accumulating new books?! Have you read any of the above or do you plan to?
