DOWN AMONG THE STICKS AND BONES by Seanan McGuire
The second book in the Wayward Children series, following the April 2016 LibraryReads pick, EVERY HEART A DOORWAY has three starred reviews! This standalone dark novel suitable for adult and young adult readers of urban fantasy explores what happened to Jack and Jill before they tumbled into Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children. Thrust into a world of monsters and mad scientists, the twin girls find something they thought they’d never experience: choice. “McGuire’s exquisitely written fairy tale is about the choices that can alter the course of a life forever, lost innocence, and what it is to love and be loved.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
THE FORTUNE TELLER by Gwendolyn Womack
From the award-winning author of THE MEMORY PAINTER comes a sweeping and suspenseful tale of fate and fortune about an antiquities appraiser at a Manhattan auction house who discovers a manuscript written in the time of Cleopatra, that references a priceless tarot deck and a two-thousand-year-old secret. “THE FORTUNE TELLER by Womack filled with brave women, books, libraries, and mystical qualities, easy rec for librarians and readers!” — Andrienne Cruz, Adult Services Librarian, Azusa City Library, Azusa CA
THE MAP THAT LEADS TO YOU by J.P. Monninger

As forces are bringing Jack and Heather together, life and duty are pushing them apart. And Jack has a secret that is going to change absolutely everything.

THE PEOPLE WE HATE AT THE WEDDING by Grant Ginder
A bitingly funny, hugely entertaining novel in which a fractured family from the Chicago suburbs must gather in London for their eldest daughter’s marriage to an upper-crust Englishman, proving that the harder we strain against the ties that bind, the tighter they hold us close. “Ginder takes family dysfunction to its hysterical limit in this joyously ribald, sharply cynical, and impossible-to-put-down examination of love and loyalty.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
