Kathy recommends Chapter One

Looking for something to read?  My favorite titles of the year so far are August Snow and Behind Her Eyes.

August Snow by Stephen Mack Jones is a classic private eye story that takes place in Detroit and is written by a Detroiter.  Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough is a psychological thriller, ala Girl on the Train, with a big twist at the end.  It has it’s very own hashtag on social media:  #wtfthatending! 

Both titles are recommended for adult audiences.

For other adult reading recommendations, join librarians Kate, Meghan and myself at CHAPTER ONE on Wednesday, September 13 at 7 pm in the Main Library Auditorium.  We will discuss a curated list of twenty plus titles, both fiction and non-fiction, and print and audio.  We will also give a sneak preview of upcoming hot reads for Fall! Register here.

Kara recommends "All the Ugly and Wonderful Things"

This book is not for everyone, but I found it to be the best book I have read so far this year.  The writing was beautiful, and the story and characters were touching and disturbing at the same time.  This would be a great book for book clubs to read, as it would make for a great discussion.  I recommend this book for adult readers.
