New book, where are you???

I keep hearing about this new book! It sounds really good and right up my alley but it doesn't seem to be at my library yet.

It never fails. I see a book in a newspaper called Book Page that is given out AT THE LIBRARY. So you would think that maybe, just maybe, they would have some of the books that are all over the pages of this thing! The cover of Book Page says "Seven new novelists you should be reading". Ok, I believe you! And I'd love to be reading them but you have to supply them to me oh great library!

The one that sounds really good is The Weight of Silence by Heather Gudenkauf. This is Miss Gudenkauf's debut novel and it sounds really good. Not to mention, the cover really intrigues me.

Not only is it advertised in Book Page but it's also on the newsletter I received today!

Come on! Stop teasing me! I'm thinking I might just have to get to B&N to grab this one.

Here's what the ad says, in case you are interested......

"Heather Gudenkauf's debut is a stunning novel of family
devotion, honestly and regret that will linger long after the last page is turned.
Masterfully written and beautifully told. It happens quietly one August morning. Two families awaken to find the little girls have gone missing in the night. Now these families are tied by the question of what happened to their children. And the answer is trapped in
the silence of unspoken family secrets."

Now do you see why I can't wait to get my hands on this one??


  1. Can you request that your library order it? There's a page on my library's website to do that. Believe me, I use it all the time :o)

  2. I've seen that book somewhere but not at my library either Lori. I think it was on I thought it sounded good too.

  3. There's no page for that on the website but it only came out on the 28th of July so I'm going to give it a few and see if they have it. It came out in paperback so I'll see if I can find it if they don't have it.


So, whatcha thinkin?
