O Magazine books editor’s best summer reads

O Magazine books editor’s best summer reads

O Magazine Books Editor Leigh Haber went on local New York television station PIX11 to recommend her favorite summer reads. I was delighted that she included The Marriage Pact in this great line-up of books!

See the segment with Haber’s favorite beach reads (including new books by two great writers I’ve only met recently, Janelle Brown and Jenny Zhang).

Today is also the first day of August, which means it’s time of the August Indie Next list. The Marriage Pact made the list, along with some of my favorite books of the year, including Joshilyn Jackson‘s WONDERFUL novel The Almost Sisters and Fierce Kingdom by Gin Phillips.

The best books of July – according to librarians in US & Canada

Librarians across the United States announce their favorite ten books each month–the ones they’ll be talking about and lending to their patrons. I’m delighted that The Marriage Pact is on the list for July, along with new titles by two fabulous writer friends, Joshilyn Jackson (The Almost Sisters) and Janelle Brown (Watch Me Disappear). Also on the list: The Lying Game, by Ruth Ware, Final Girls, by Riley Sager, Down a Dark Road, by Linda Castillo, When the English Fall,b y David Williams, The Wilding Sisters, by Eve Chase and Wired, by Julie Garwood.

Here’s what librarian Becky Bowen from Kenton Public Library in Independence, KY,  had to say about The Marriage Pact in her Library Reads write-up:

“Newlyweds Jake and Alice are understandably nervous about starting married life together. So, when given the opportunity to join the exclusive group known as “The Pact” –whose stated goal is to keep married couples happy and together forever, they jump at the offer. However, things quickly take a sinister turn and readers will be hooked as Jake and Alice struggle to find their way out.”

Librarians across Canada have their own top-ten list, Loan Stars. The Marriage Pact is on their list too–along with another favorite of mine this month, Fierce Kingdom by Gin Phillips.

Huge thanks to librarians for believing in the Marriage Pact!

I have more exciting news about the Marriage Pact to announce in August, so stay tuned!
