A selection of the best books arriving at the library this week.
This week sees several of the year’s most anticipated new titles being released, including Margaret Atwood’s sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale.
Labor Day has come and gone, and with it the tourist season has ended. Of course, that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy a great book on the beach, or if you’ve had to head back away from the coast, out on your deck.
One of the best things about a great book is how it can totally transport you into another world, sometimes for pure escapism, but others to help you better understand the lives of our fellow humans.
Labor Day is only about 3 weeks away. It’s hard to believe another Summer is already nearly over. That’s still enough time to get some more beach reading done however, and there are a lot of great books coming out this week to help pass the time on the sand!
Writing an oral history for an imaginary rock band can’t be easy, but author Taylor Jenkins Reid handles the task with aplomb in Daisy Jones & The Six.
Summer can often be seen as the time for easy, fun, escapist reading. The latest from Colson Whitehead certainly is not that. Don’t get me wrong, the writing style has enough of a pop-sensibility and the plot is suspenseful enough to keep readers turning the pages, but knowing that this story is based on a very-real place, makes the subject matter far from easy.
