River of Stars

River of Stars is an extraordinary work -- epic in scope, exquisite in its presentation, and engaging across all levels.


The Fever Tree

McVeigh has fashioned a captivating and thoroughly researched historical novel.... The Fever Tree is also a riveting love story and a well-told tale of one woman’s journey towards self-discovery.


While We Were Watching Downton Abbey

Honesty in any relationship is vital, and Wax shows this truth in downtown Atlanta alongside the engrossing story of “Downton Abbey”.


Reconstructing Amelia

Reconstructing Amelia pulls you in from the first page and leaves you shaken with the tragedy of it all. This is a book that should be read by parents, teachers and students alike and needs to be in every high school and public library.


Harley Loco: A Memoir of Hard Living, Hair, and Post-Punk, from the Middle East to the Lower East Side

Though slow to get going, the second half of this memoir is strong stuff, with some truly amazing stories well-told.


Tuesday's Gone

A fiercely intelligent, multilayered thriller, this book casts its narrative net wider than Blue Monday, making welcome demands on its readers.


My Foreign Cities: A Memoir

Scarboro’s writing is marked by honesty, and although a new love appears for the young widow at the end, there’s no doubt of the warmth of her love for Stephen in the years they had together.


The Second Arab Awakening: Revolution, Democracy, and the Islamist Challenge from Tunis to Damascus

A knowledgeable survey for students and a glimpse into what the Islamist future might offer.


Bristol House: A Novel

This latest effort by Swerling is nicely penned but also ponderous and overloaded with out-of-place sexual vernacular, an overabundance of detail, and a tired, evil Catholic Church conspiracy.


Harvard Square: A Novel

A rather modest addition to immigrant experience literature.


Renegade
Kirkus Reviews : Renegade (April 08, 2013)

An insult to all readers, teen or otherwise.


Final Settlement

A twisty fourth case that strikes close to the bone for a complex, likable sleuth.


Pandora's Lunchbox: How Processed Food Took Over the American Meal

She’s never too preachy; she acknowledges that much of the food she condemns tastes delicious, and that she’s fed her kids plenty of frozen meals. She just asks readers to consider how they eat.


Weird Life: The Search for Life That Is Very, Very Different from Our Own

Unlike many writers covering this turf, Toomey is calm and clear-eyed, but alive to the exciting possibilities that other, perhaps madder writers and thinkers are engaged in sniffing out.


Manuscript Found in Accra

With this book, Mr. Coelho continues his intermingling of faith, fable, and fiction.


Reboot

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a sci-fi tinged YA title that takes place in a dystopian future with a scattering of teenage romance between a strong female protagonist and a puppy-like male lead.


The Spark: A Mother's Story of Nurturing, Genius, and Autism

The Spark is a story of a Mother’s love and affection for her son and her children. The amount of strides and efforts she makes to create a life full of possibility for her children knows no bounds and it’s apparent on every page of this wonderful memoir.


The Smart One

An unassuming but far from vacuous domestic comedy, perfect for the beach or a long plane trip.


Shocked: My Mother, Schiaparelli, and Me

Perfect for anyone who loved Volk’s first autobiographical effort, Stuffed: Adventures of a Restaurant Family, or who enjoys the work of memoirists like Jeannette Walls or Grace Coddington.


Harley Loco: A Memoir of Hard Living, Hair, and Post-Punk, from the Middle East to the Lower East Side

Elias’s story captures powerfully the vulnerability of being an outsider and the deep yearnings to be a part of something, to fit in.
