Teaser Tuesday – January 24, 2023 #NewBook #WhatJulyKnew @EmilyKoch @HarvillSecker #TeaserTuesday #TuesdayBookBlog @PenguinUKBooks

My Tuesday post where I’ll ‘tease‘ you with the cover, blurb, and first paragraph of one of the titles from my own TBR.

This book is a title I received from Harvill Secker / Penguin UK via
NetGalley and I’ll be reading it soon.

Today, Tuesday January 24, 2023 I want to introduce one of the ARCs on my TBR.

This novel will be published on February 9, 2023

Publisher: Harvill Secker (Penguin UK)ISBN: 9781787301030 –  ASIN:  ‎ B09HZXD7CK –  330 pages



1)  It has been a while since I’ve read an adult novel with a child protagonist.

2)  The mystery of what really happened to July’s mother.

3) This is a ‘new to me’ author.

“July Hooper was always hot because she was born in a heatwave. This rare ribbon of information was handed over by her grandma, who promptly realised she had pulled it loose from the forbidden fabric of conversation that was July’s mother, and pinned her lips shut.

Nobody ever talked about Maggie Hooper’s life, or the awful way it had ended.”

Is this a title that you would consider adding to your TBR pile?

Why, or why not?

Let me know in the comments.
