Coming Soon to a Book Store Near You ~ You Should Have Known; Jean Hanff Korelitz

While trying to prioritize my lengthy list of new books coming out in 2014, I decided to try a new feature on my blog. I'm hoping this idea will hopefully serve a few purposes: keep me focused on books I'd like to read, give a little PR to the authors (especially new authors) who worked so hard getting published, and to let other readers know about books that will be hitting the book stores soon (within the next 90 days).
 
Here's my "Coming Soon to a Book Store Near You" pick for today -

  
You Should Have Known; Jean Hanff Korelitz
Grand Central Publishing/Hachette
 March 18, 2014

Overview

Grace Reinhart Sachs is living the only life she ever wanted for herself. Devoted to her husband, a pediatric oncologist at a major cancer hospital, their young son Henry, and the patients she sees in her therapy practice, her days are full of familiar things: she lives in the very New York apartment in which she was raised, and sends Henry to the school she herself once attended. Dismayed by the ways in which women delude themselves, Grace is also the author of a book You Should Have Known, in which she cautions women to really hear what men are trying to tell them. But weeks before the book is published a chasm opens in her own life: a violent death, a missing husband, and, in the place of a man Grace thought she knew, only an ongoing chain of terrible revelations. Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster, and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child and herself.

  5. Sounds like a thriller. The name catches me because my daughter is also Grace Reinhart but with a different spelling for the last name. I better warn her that she's in a novel.

  7. I love this new idea of yours for organizing future reads and upcoming books. I hope it helps me get organized!

    You Should Have Known sounds great, I'd really like to read it. Of course, I'm wondering what it's about and what happens and now I'm wondering if what I think happens is correct! Thank you, Diane!

  11. Most definitely--I like books set in NYC anyway, and the premise is strong. It's not a unique idea, but the expert being caught in her own trap has promise. If the writing is good, this could be a winner.
