Happy Monday!

The purpose of Must Get Monday is to spotlight some of those books you simply CAN’T WAIT to get your hands on… but might have to if you’re waiting for them to release 😉

This week the book I’m featuring is The Girl From the Papers by Jennifer L. Wright


I have been HOOKED on Jennifer L. Wright’s books ever since the cover from her debut snagged my attention and then I preordered after reading the blurb. Now she’s become one of my must-read authors and I’ve been super duper impatient waiting for this one to release. Fortunately my wait is almost over since it releases in about a week on August 8. Have you preordered this one too??

Inspired by one of America’s most notorious couples, Bonnie and Clyde, Jennifer L. Wright delivers a riveting tale set during the public enemy era of the Great Depression.

Beatrice Carraway has dreams. Although she’s aged out of the childhood pageant circuit, she’s intent on carrying her talents all the way to the big screen—if only she can escape the poverty of West Dallas first. But as the Great Depression drags the working class further and further under, Beatrice struggles just to keep herself, her mother, and her younger sister afloat. After a string of failed auditions, she feels defeated.

And then in walks Jack Turner. Though Beatrice is determined to pull herself up by her bootstraps, Jack has decided on a different path out of the gutters. It isn’t long before Beatrice is swept into an exciting and glamorous life of crime beside the man she loves. Keeping one step ahead of the law, she sees her dreams of fame come true when her name and picture are plastered in newspapers across the country. Yet as their infamy grows, the distance between them widens. While Jack begins seeking bigger payouts and publicity, Beatrice starts to long for a safe, quiet life and something deeper to fill the emptiness in her soul. But when the danger of Jack’s schemes ratchets up, Beatrice fears her dreams—and her future—will end up going down in a hail of bullets.
