Mary Coin
Kirkus Reviews : Mary Coin (March 07, 2013)

Walker’s tacked-on connection to the photograph seems a calculated attempt to add sexual intrigue to what is otherwise a disappointingly plodding account that sheds no new light on either the photographer or her subject.


Crap Kingdom

Adults might wonder what Pierson’s smoking; teens will just enjoy the ride.


Telling the Bees

An intermittently arcane but undeniably original debut.


Comandante: Hugo Chavez's Venezuela

“Utopia is realizable,” insists Chávez. It may not have arrived yet in Venezuela, but it’s interesting to watch from afar. Carroll provides a useful primer on a little-known regime.


Trading Bases: A Story About Wall Street, Gambling, and Baseball (Not Necessarily in That Order)

The main focus on baseball provides a starting point for much more.


Orleans
Kirkus Reviews : Orleans (March 07, 2013)

A harrowing and memorable ride.


Astonished: A Story of Evil, Blessings, Grace, and Solace
Kirkus Reviews : Astonished (March 07, 2013)

Honest, engaging and cathartic.


Gun Guys: A Road Trip
Kirkus Reviews : Gun Guys (March 07, 2013)

Though many liberals will dislike Baum’s conclusions (and gun rights crusaders may distrust him regardless), he offers a thoughtful corrective to the mutual ideological hysteria surrounding the issue of guns in America.


The Chemistry of Tears

Like the wondrous machine whereof it speaks, this novel is a triumph of craftsmanship and as one reads it’s easy to imagine Carey fitting it all together, balancing the pieces and turning the screws with the finest of his literary tools.


The Indigo Spell

While I'm not sure I want to go back and read all the books that came before, I definitely had a great time reading this one.


The Accursed

Though it requires some work and has a wintry feel to it, it’s oddly entertaining, as a good supernatural yarn should be.


The Dinner

This is one book that you’re not going to want to put down.


Wave

This is a memoir that will teach you about the true meaning of family, love and strength.


Dark Tide

If you like character-based mysteries that grow steadily more complex, definitely give Elizabeth Haynes’s work a try.


Children of Liberty

Children of Liberty is a wonderfully atmospheric historical tale.


Silenced: A Novel

Fans of Kjell Eriksson should enjoy Kristina Ohlsson's books with their mix of domestic, professional and political issues.


Her
Kirkus Reviews : Her (March 06, 2013)

Parravani delicately probes the fragile, intimate boundaries among love, identity and loss.


The Antagonist

The epistolary form is difficult. The Antagonist is not one of its shining examples.


This Is the Way

In This Is The Way Gavin Corbett has created a character whose own journey mirrors the act of reading and he has done this with more than the usual cleverness.
