The Last Graduate
The Scholomance: Book #2
By Naomi Novik
Length: 13 hours 27 minutes
“My, my, my. This book evoked so many emotions out of me that I finished reading it last night, threw it across my room, and then screamed internally all night, picking it back up occasionally to see if the final few sentences changed, and then tossing it again when they hadn't. Novik has perfected the art of sucking you into her worlds and chucking you right down in a seat next to her characters, making you feel like you're one of them. And when something major happens, say a MASSIVE cliffhanger ending, you're left freaking out and trying to figure out why you feel like you also just got your heart stomped on. It's beautiful, it's terrifying, and I need to know more! I want ten more books in this world, but I'll be content with the next one in my hands as soon as possible so I can soothe my aching heart! ”Caitlyn, Bookmarks
The Lincoln Highway
If you enjoyed This Tender Land, then you’ll love The Lincoln Highway.
“THIS BOOK EXCEEDED ALL EXPECTATIONS! As a huge fan of A Gentleman in Moscow and Rules of Civility, The Lincoln Highway had a lot of pressure and holy cow did it surpass anything I could have hoped for. From the first page, I was immediately drawn into Towles' magical writing and superb characters. This felt like a modern classic, the new and updated version of Huckleberry Finn that I actually wanted to read in high school. You cannot beat the quirkiness of Towles' characters. You feel so deeply about every single one of them and it feels like they leap off the page with specificities with which they are written. Duchess and Woolly, the stowaways, felt like a modern day George and Lennie from Of Mice and Men with Woolly's gentle giant innocence and Duchess' take-the-lead wile. Emmett is the stoic, do-right midwesterner who always fixes the messes. And Billy is the smartest, sweetest kid who inspires those around him. You fall in love with them and are left with all the feels. A glorious five out of five stars for me, The Lincoln Highway will be my go-to recommendation this fall.”Kimi, Buttonwood Books and Toys

When Ghosts Come Home
“Only Wiley Cash’s exquisite storytelling could turn a story full of sad and depressing topics into a powerful, beautiful and meaningful story. It is the story of Sheriff Winston Barnes, the longtime sheriff of the small community of Oak Island, NC who is up for re-election and doubts that he will win. It is the story of how something in his past still haunts him and because of that he always tries to do the right thing, not what everyone wants or expects him to do, it is the story of his family and how much they mean to each other, it is a story of the racial unrest in the area in the 80s. And it is also a mystery which starts when a ghost plane and the dead body of a young black resident of Oak Island are found at the small airport and ends with a totally surprising outcome. The narration was as beautiful as the writing and I couldn't stop listening.”Nancy, Fiction Addiction
