SO many good books new on our shelves this week!! New releases from Sarah J. Maas, Andy Weir (of The Martian fame), one of my favourite historical-fiction reads this year, and one I'm dying to read... among others!
I Have Lost My Way by Gayle Forman
A signed copy from the author of If I Stay and Where She Went
Tomboy Survival Guide by Ivan Coyote
Remember when Ivan Coyote came to LSS last year? We've got all of Ivan's books in the library.
No and Me by Delphine de Vigan
Critically acclaimed as "a tense, brilliant novel about home and homelessness"
Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys
From the author of WWII historical fiction mega-hits, Salt to the Sea and Between Shades of Grey (no, not those Shades of Grey. Sheesh).
This time, Sepetys takes the reader into the gritty French Quarter of New Orleans in the 1950's.
Until Friday Night by Abbi Glines
I wouldn't exactly call this high-brow literature, but I also can think of worse things to read about for 300 pages than high-school football in Texas. #cleareyes #fullhearts
Every Day by David Levithan
A student reader request!
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas
Newly published book 3 in the Court of Thorns and Roses series. Stay tuned for A Court of Frost and Starlight.
Artemis by Andy Weir
Andy Weir is back with a sophomore effort to follow his uber-hit novel The Martian (or perhaaaps you saw the movie adaptation? You know, the Matt-Damon-is-an-astronaut-left-behind-to-survive-on-Mars one? That one.)
The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis
I just added this one to my list of books to read - but FYI, this one might not be for everyone. A GoodReads reviewer calls it:
"It's a very dark, unflinching look at rape culture, slut-shaming and the long-lasting effects of sexual assault; not just on the victims, but on those close to them."
The Impossible Fortress: A Novel by Jason Rekulak
Critically acclaimed as "A Love Letter to the 1980's". If 80's pop culture references are your jam (who didn't love Ready Player One?) - this book is for you.
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
File this one under "All The Feels".
Tomboy: A Graphic Memoir by Liz Prince
From the back cover:
"A (graphic-novel) memoir about friendship, gender, bullies, growth, punk rock, and the power of the perfect outfit..."
