𝑯𝒂𝒑𝒑𝒚 𝑾𝒆𝒅𝒏𝒆𝒔𝒅𝒂𝒚 𝑭𝒓𝒊𝒆𝒏𝒅𝒔! My WOW turned in to Thankful Wednesday!
Thank you Macmillan Audio for the most wonderful #bookmail! American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins arriving in a little brown envelope was a most welcome surprise! Summary provided below!
𝙌𝙊𝙏𝘿: What's your favorite or go-to paranormal character/genre? The Fae? Vampires? Were-folk? Shifters? Spirits? Or something else?
𝙈𝘼𝙊𝙏𝘿: I have always been drawn to any story about the Fae! Light and Dark! I find them both fascinating and compelling to read about! I love the back history that often goes into the stories and the creative process many writers incorporate into the old myths and folktales. -

Already being hailed as "a Grapes of Wrath for our times" and "a new American classic," American Dirt is a rare exploration into the inner hearts of people willing to sacrifice everything for a glimmer of hope.
Lydia Quixano Perez lives in the Mexican city of Acapulco. She runs a bookstore. She has a son, Luca, the love of her life, and a wonderful husband who is a journalist. And while there are cracks beginning to show in Acapulco because of the drug cartels, her life is, by and large, fairly comfortable.
Even though she knows they'll never sell, Lydia stocks some of her all-time favorite books in her store. And then one day a man enters the shop to browse and comes up to the register with four books he would like to buy--two of them her favorites. Javier is erudite. He is charming. And, unbeknownst to Lydia, he is the jefe of the newest drug cartel that has gruesomely taken over the city. When Lydia's husband's tell-all profile of Javier is published, none of their lives will ever be the same.
Since this arrived, I haven't been able to stop listening! AMERICAN DIRT will be released on January 21, 2020!
