Book Postcard: Like Mandarin

The other day I received a postcard from Kirsten Hubbard of her debut novel Like Mandarin! Her novel will be released this year on March 8 through the publisher Delacorte Press.

I can't remember how I found out about the author and her book (maybe GoodReads?), but I started following her blog when I saw that she was a fan of Melina Marchetta. The interesting thing is Melina Marchetta blurbed Like Mandarin a few months ago!
Back of postcard.

"A beautifully crafted, bittersweet story about an unlikely friendship that sets two very different people free." - Melina Marchetta

Cool, huh? :D Can't wait to read this book. I also can't wait to read Kristen Hubbard's second novel Wanderlove, which will be released next year. It sounds very good too! (By the way, the book cover looks way better than the picture you see up there. The sorting machines used by the US Postal Service messed up the postcard. :p)


  1. That is awesome! I really need to pre-order this book :)

  2. I'm looking forward to reading Like Mandarin and the next book sounds great too. I hadn't heard of that one before now!

  3. @Nic: Me too. ^^

    @Leanna: I'm even more eager to read her second book only because it sounds like it might have romance. Btw, thanks for the follow. :)
