Oh man, the books that we just got into the library are ones that I’ve been waiting for all summer! I tried to not check out 50 books this time, instead I narrowed it down to 6. Can I just say that I am super impressed with myself! This haul was all about waiting for the last of my summer picks to come in, no browsing this time! Here is a little preview of the books you can expect to read more about on my blog this September! All synopses were found at Goodreads.com!
Harmony by Carolyn Parkhurst
The Hammond family seems to be going just fine, until it becomes clear that the oldest daughter, Tilly, is developing abnormally. The family turns to Camp Harmony and the wisdom of child behavior guru Scott Bean for a solution. But what they discover in the woods of New Hampshire will push them to the very limit.
Girls on Fire by Robin Wasserman
Girls on Fire tells the story of Hannah and Lacey and their obsessive teenage female friendship so passionately violent it bloodies the very sunset its protagonists insist on riding into, together, at any cost.
Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
In this tightly wound story, Lo Blacklock, a journalist who writes for a travel magazine, has just been given the assignment of a lifetime: a week on a luxury cruise with only a handful of cabins. At first, Lo’s stay is nothing but pleasant, but as the week wears on, frigid winds whip the deck, gray skies fall, and Lo witnesses what she can only describe as a nightmare.
The Muse by Jessie Burton
Having struggled to find her place in the city since she arrived from Trinidad five years ago, Odelle Bastien has been offered a job as a typist under the tutelage of the glamorous and enigmatic Marjorie Quick. But though Quick takes Odelle into her confidence, and unlocks a potential she didn’t know she had, she remains a mystery.
The Age of Bowie by Paul Morley
Respected arts commentator Paul Morley, one of the team who curated the highly successful retrospective exhibition for the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, David Bowie Is . . . constructs the definitive story of Bowie that explores how he worked, played, aged, structured his ideas, invented the future and entered history as someone who could and would never be forgotten.
Classic Pick: Pale Fire by Vladimir Nabokov
An ingeniously constructed parody of detective fiction and learned commentary, Pale Fire offers a cornucopia of deceptive pleasures, at the center of which is a 999-line poem written by the literary genius John Shade just before his death.
