The Affair by Lee Child
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
Bonnie by Iris Johansen
The Man Who Smiled by Henning Mankell
Damned by Chuck Palahniuk.
A very unique homage to the works of Judy Blume. Here is the publisher’s official synopsis for the new book from the extremely popular cult author and here are reviews from The Washington Post and Gentlemen’s Quarterly. And an interview with Palahniuk in The Wall Street Journal.
The Best Of Me by Nicholas Sparks
How To Live Safely In A Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu.
Selected Novels And Short Stories by Patricia Highsmith
1Q84 by Haruki Murakami
I personally could not be more excited to have this book at our library. One of my favorite authors. Check out the review from The New York Review Of Books and in The New York Times. Picked by Amazon as the #2 (of 10) book of the year. We think you’ll find that this book is proof that literature matters.
