Anticipated Third Quarter Book Releases in 2024

If I had the motivation, I would have requested a lot of ARCs in July. But I decided I needed a break to focus on the physical books I bought for myself. Regardless, there are quite a few anticipated 2024 third quarter book releases that I’m looking forward to. Again, I don’t know if I’ll ever get to all of them. But I can still dream.

There are quite a few that I strongly suspect I’ll receive in my book subscriptions. However, I won’t mark those as preorders to avoid spoiling the surprise for anyone. This also played into why I didn’t request ARCs from one of my favorite publishers. Now, let’s take a look at those anticipated 2024 third quarter book releases. (For reference, you can also view my anticipated 2024 book releases for this first and second quarters, too.)

ARC Review: The Big Freeze by Natalie Lampert

Today’s review is about THE BIG FREEZE by Natalie Lampert. As the rest of the title explains, this is a nonfiction account of “A Reporter’s Personal Journey Into the World of Egg Freezing and the Quest to Control Our Fertility.” The focus of this book is toward those who want to freeze eggs for non-infertility reasons. However, the content is pertinent to both broad groups. This is an incredibly informative read.

ARC Review: The Mirror of Simple Souls by Aline Kiner

Today’s review is about THE MIRROR OF SIMPLE SOULS by Aline Kiner, translated from French by Susan Emanuel. It’s a historical drama set in early 14th century Paris amidst a beguinage. Likely an unfamiliar term to many today, it’s a community of women who, broadly, haven’t sworn vows or remarried. Instead, they work together as their own cloistered community. THE MIRROR OF SIMPLE SOULS features the arrival of a young teen girl. Her presence heralds an eventual dilemma of whether to silently rebel against the burgeoning religious repression of the era.
