Upcoming: Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Nifenegger


The new novel, Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger arrived today!!

I'm doing my monkey dance...can you picture it? One of these days, I'm going to have to vlog my monkey dance so all of you can truly appreciate it. The Man calls it "The A.P." and has been subjected to this happy little dance for 16 years. I'm doing it now, people!!

I am a HUGE fan of The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, and since I learned that the author was coming out with another book, I have been asking for (ok begging for) Her Fearful Symmetry. Persistence pays off!

I can't tell you how hard it is not to pick it up right this minute and start devouring this book! Soon...very very soon...and I will post the review on Alison's Book Marks the day of the novel's release: September 29th.

If you haven't read The Time Traveler's must.

In the meantime, you can take a look at an interview with author Audrey Niffenegger here at Simon & Schuster's official website.

Looking forward to seeing the Monkey Dance....

Reading the TTW now as a matter of fact.

I read the synopsis of HFS and was concerned it may be too scary for me. LOL You'll have to let me know.

Alison said...

Sheri, I will be sure to make a note in my review about how scary it might be for you! Let me know when you've finished TTW -- I want to know what you think. You and I usually have very similar taste in books...

Stephanie said...

I got this one a few weeks ago and just reviewed it earlier this week! Happy reading!

I hope you like this one. I loved it and I was not a super fan of Time Traveler's Wife. I can't wait to see your thoughts!

Alison said...

O. M. G. I loved it! I'm working on the review now.

Sheri -- Parts of it might be "spooky" I guess, but not in a Stephen King-I-need-to-sleep-with-the-lights-on kind of way. I'm really anxious to find out what you think of TTW.

Stephanie (Stephanie's Written Word) and Christine (booktumbling) -- I try and wait until AFTER I write a review to read other blogger's reviews. As soon as I'm done writing, you'll both be hearing from me! I can't wait to chat about this book!!
