I'm not ashamed to admit I judge books by their covers

One of the first things I do on Tuesday mornings is check Barnes and Noble's New Releases list. Why yes, I am a self-proclaimed book nerd, but that isn't news to any of you. I rarely buy full-price books, but I like to know what's new so I can keep my to-read list updated.

The book that caught my eye this morning isn't actually available until July, but it looks good! It's definitely an Eri book (history, romance, unanswered questions) and I have a feeling it's going to be a good read.

From Barnes and Noble:

"A sophisticated, page-turning double love story spanning forty years-an unforgettable Brief Encounter for our times.

It is 1960. When Jennifer Stirling wakes up in the hospital, she can remember nothing-not the tragic car accident that put her there, not her husband, not even who she is. She feels like a stranger in her own life until she stumbles upon an impassioned letter, signed simply "B", asking her to leave her husband.

Years later, in 2003, a journalist named Ellie discovers the same enigmatic letter in a forgotten file in her newspaper's archives. She becomes obsessed by the story and hopeful that it can resurrect her faltering career. Perhaps if these lovers had a happy ending she will find one to her own complicated love life, too. Ellie's search will rewrite history and help her see the truth about her own modern romance.

A spellbinding, intoxicating love story with a knockout ending, The Last Letter from Your Lover will appeal to the readers who have made One Day and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society bestsellers."

And, by the way, I truly, madly, deeply loved The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.


  1. Oooh I loved the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society too, so I'll have to check this out soon! :)

  2. Oh, I totally judge books by the cover. I will definitely be keeping this one on my to read list. Thanks for sharing!

  3. This book cover would catch my eye in heartbeat simply because of the Tower Bridge and my absolute love and passion for London :) Then when I read what this novel was about....sigh...I need this in my book shelf!!! I'm currently reading "One Day" and am absolutely in LOVE with it! So it looks like I'll need to put The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society on my to read list as well!!! :) Thanks for the recommendations :)


Thanks for stopping by!
