Armchair Book Expo Day 4:

Book giveaway

Lucky you! Gallic Books JUST sent me this book (as they often do, thank you!) that’s supposed to be very good, but some words in the synopsis make me think I would not enjoy it, so it’s ALL yours!
It’s obviously brand new, it’s not even an ARC, and the release date is July 11.
It comes with a postcard featuring the book cover.
Click on the cover to know more about it:
