FICTION:

The Monster In Me by Mette Ivie Harrison

Marvel Age Spider-Man: Special Inauguration Day Edition! by Zeb Wells and illustrated by Todd Nauck

The Host by Stephenie Meyer

This book was published a few years ago by this little known author (heavy sarcrasm there), but we just got another copy and figured it’d be interesting to remind our patrons of another work of hers, outside the Twilight saga. I haven’t read the novel myself, but it’s got a very intriguing sounding sci fi plot, and is soon to be adapted into a film starring Saoirse Ronan and Diane Kruger.

The Color Of Fire by Ann Rinaldi

We Need To Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver

A complex novel about the aftermath of a school massacre, written from the perspective of the killer’s mother, who’s trying to understand why and come to terms with the crimes that her son has committed. It was adapted into a highly acclaimed film last year by director Lynne Ramsay and starring cinematic chameleon Tilda Swinton and John C. Reilly. Check out this interview with the author at Salon.

Can Diets By Harmful? edited by Christine Watkins
