Rebecca Rasmussen’s The Bird Sisters is a RIF favorite, and we’re celebrating the paperback release with another Read It First giveaway. A perfect choice for your book group! Hundreds of you received copies of The Bird Sisters back in April – we want to hear from you! Here’s what RIFer Laurie W. has to say about the read: “This is a great book of love, loss and family. The relationship of Twiss and Milly gives us a look into what it is like to have a sister who is always there for you. Even when you get old.”
And now for something completely different . . . a knitting book! We’re thinking some of you RIFers out there might be crafters, and our friends at CrafterNews have generously offered copies of Genevieve Miller’s Vampire Knits, just in time for Halloween! Surrender to the allure of knits inspired by the immortals we all love to fear. If you adore Twilight, True Blood, or The Vampire Diaries, this collection of 28 imaginative and beautiful projects is sure to captivate. And we’re excited to offer another special book for giveaway this week (hint: Martha Stewart).
Lamb traces the self-discovery of David Lamb, a narcissistic middle aged man with a tendency toward dishonesty, in the weeks following the disintegration of his marriage and the death of his father. Hoping to regain some faith in his own goodness, he turns his attention to Tommie, an awkward and unpopular eleven-year-old girl. Lamb is convinced that he can help her avoid a destiny of apathy and emptiness, and even comes to believe that his devotion to Tommie is in her best interest.
“I am delighted that these early novels, which I published under my maiden name, Lisa Miscione, have found a new life on the shelves and a new home with the stellar team at Broadway Books,” says Lisa Unger, bestselling author of Darkness, My Old Friend. “I know a lot of authors wish their early books would just disappear, because they’ve come so far as writers since they first began their careers. And I understand that, because we would all go back and rewrite everything if we could. But I have a special place in my heart for these flawed, sometimes funny, complicated characters and their wild, action-packed stories.”
