Happy #BookBday (8/9/16 Edition)

Happy #BookBday to five new novels and true crime story bound to be a bestseller:

ADNAN’S STORY: The Search for Truth and Justice After Serial by Rabia Chaudry
Two starred reviews! “Chaudry uses her unique perspective to craft a gripping and meticulously detailed account of the case including letters, court transcripts, and documentary evidence that fill in the show’s gaps and provide the latest updates. Readers new to the story will have no trouble following—the narrative is outlined extensively from the beginning—and podcast listeners will find plenty of previously undisclosed material.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

I WILL SEND RAIN by Rae Meadows
An August 2016 Indie Next pick, a BEA 2016 “Shout ‘n Share” pick, and a Maximum Shelf Awareness selection with THREE starred reviews!An exceptional talent for creating vivid imagery and a tender regard for her characters mark Meadows’ new novel set in the Oklahoma Panhandle during the Dust Bowl. Similar to John Steinbeck’s haunting portrait of tenant farmers in THE GRAPES OF WRATH, but also with the gritty, bittersweet elements in Rilla Askew’s HARPSONG and the poignant lyricism of Karen Hesse’s OUT OF THE DUST.” Booklist, starred review

MR. ETERNITY by Aaron Thier
An August 2016 Indie Next pick! A novel of exuberance and ambition, spanning one thousand years of high-seas adventure, environmental and cultural catastrophe, and enduring love. “Erudite. Imaginative. A work to be read slowly and savored.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred review


ALL THE UGLY AND WONDERFUL THINGS by Bryn Greenwood
A beautiful and provocative love story between two unlikely people and the hard-won relationship that elevates them above the Midwestern meth lab backdrop of their lives. “Greenwood limns her characters with matter-of-fact empathy, inviting us to respect the resourcefulness and resilience with which Wavy surmounts her dangerously disordered circumstances to craft a life and a love. Intelligent, honest, and unsentimental.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

A WEEK IN PARIS by Rachel Hore
“Hore again proves her talent for combining history and generational family drama in parallel stories, adding hints of romance and psychic ability to form an intensely compelling story. Reminiscent of Irène Némirovsky’s SUITE FRANCAISE for its immersive historical perspective, and Belinda Alexandra’s GOLDEN EARRINGS for the emotional richness and parallel mother-daughter story lines.” — Booklist

THE MATCHMAKERS OF MINNOW BAY by Kelly Harms
When Lily Stewart is forced to move out of her apartment, she finds a letter detailing further action to annul her quickie Vegas wedding from ten years ago and sets out to find her husband. “Fans of Jennifer Weiner, Mary Simses, and Jennifer Close will adore this clever and witty story of self-reinvention and the power of clarity.”
