The Boardwalk Bookshop
By Susan Mallery
Length: 11 hours 18 minutes
“The Boardwalk Bookshop is is not your typical love story. Instead it intertwines the different loves in the characters’ lives: the family they were born into, the family they choose, and the love that being said then all together. If you are looking for a great read while unwinding on vacation, The Boardwalk Bookshop read should be in your bag.”Gretchen, Fiction Addiction
“The Bodyguard is the perfect comfort read. You’ll feel your shoulders drop in the safety of the world of this book. There’s great chemistry between the characters and it’s a joy to get to know them. I’m already rooting for a movie version.”Tiffany Phillips, Wild Geese Bookshop
If you enjoyed The Kiss Quotient, then you’ll love Book Lovers.
“This was not only a delightful romance to read, but a wonderful exploration of a character. I loved Nora working, Nora interacting with her sister, Nora living her kick-ass agent life. Of all of Emily Henry's characters, she's the one that I would love to read more and more and more about. Five stars, will read hundreds and hundreds of times again.”Emily, Books Inc.
The Woman in the Library
“I'd never thought of the term metafiction before, but in The Woman in the Library, Australian writer Sulari Gentill dives right into a recursive story of a writer, Hannah, writing a book about a writer, Winifred, who is writing a book and during a research trip to the Boston Public Library, becomes enmeshed in a murder investigation, using the people she encounters in her book. And then there's Leo, who Hannah is emailing chapters of the book to for comments. When Leo’s feedback becomes creepier and weirder, his story and the fictional mystery start to parallel each other, including a character also named Leo in Winifred’s story. Murders in two realities in one book; so intelligent and well constructed!”Genevieve, A Great Good Place for Books
Remarkably Bright Creatures
“In turns funny, heart-warming, and poignant, Remarkably Bright Creatures is the most unlikely tale of how broken hearts can be mended, in this case with the help of a brilliant giant Pacific octopus, Marcellus, observing humanity from his tank in a Puget Sound aquarium.It is only Marcellus who is bright enough to see a connection between two lost souls who have entered his sphere - Tova, the 70-year-old cleaning woman, and Cam, a 30-year-old drifter who works part-time at the aquarium. Marin Ireland is a remarkable narrator, allowing us to lose ourselves in proper Tova, a Scots grocer and slacker Cam. But my favorite passages are the first-person chapters where we hear Marcellus, narrated by actor Michael Urie, in a haughty voice dripping with superiority, and in the end, love.”Claire, Honest Dog Books

Tell Me Everything
The Story of a Private Investigation
“Tell Me Everything is a smart and disturbing look at sexual assault and a system that encourages it. It's part investigation of a culture of rape in a university's football team, part memoir of the author's childhood trauma as she investigates the college, and the journeys of both towards justice. And in this world we live in, what does 'justice' even look like? It's a hard read due to its subject matter, but I flew through it in one sitting... I would circle the block in my car when I got home because I couldn't bear to (figuratively) put it down. This is investigative journalism at its finest.”Conner, Tattered Cover
The Lincoln Highway

The story is funny, profound, entertaining, brazenly feminist, and Elizabeth has the BEST dog ever, Six-Thirty! You don't want to miss this wonderful debut novel!”Polly, The Hickory Stick Bookshop
