Nathan Van Horn I'm really looking forward to Ring Shout! I'll have to take a look at the others; that Dolly Parton book piques my interest.

Edit: I've read Ring Shout now, it was really great, a fun read!

Very interesting 'Malik', however, this is a discussion thread of new releases on a book listing/reviewing platform so I'm surely not the only person to be at a loss to understand how hair removal is a relevant discussion point...

Samantha I was most excited to read Congo Sole How a Once Barefoot Refugee Delivered Hope, Faith, and 20,000 Pairs of Shoes by Emmanuel Ntibonera
