PW Best Summer Books of 2016

Publishers Weekly recently announced their Best Summer Books of 2016, including these 5 Macmillan titles:
Staff Picks

MAY DAY by Gretchen Marquette
“In this lovely, dark, haunted, and haunting debut poetry collection, Marquette’s ragged, sometimes very long lines can seem to be careening out of control, except that their subjects—childhood memories of a brother and bracing visions of him on military deployment overseas; hungering, fragile love; the very nature of human experience—are so carefully handled, with such resolve and resignation. ‘It’s hard to forget what you’re built to remember,’ she writes; readers will remember this book.” — Craig Morgan Teicher, director of digital operations

YOU KNOW ME WELL by Nina LaCour & David Levithan
“Two authors I love, each alternating chapters in one book? Sign me up. LaCour (I’ll never get over how good her debut, HOLD STILL, is) and Levithan (editor and author extraordinaire) write about two friends dealing with relationship drama that unfolds over Pride Week in San Francisco. If this book is anything like the authors’ previous endeavors, I know it’ll be a great balance of honesty, authenticity, and humor.
— Natasha Gilmore, associate editor, children’s books

Mystery/Thriller

REDEMPTION ROAD by John Hart
A good cop faces criminal charges for a fatal shooting in this timely crime thriller from Hart, the only author to win the Edgar Award for best novel twice in a row. It’s been five years since Hart’s last book, IRON HOUSE, and his many fans won’t be disappointed by this tale centered on a powerful, courageous but emotionally wounded woman. readmoreremove

Three stars for DANGEROUS WOMEN!

We'd like to think that we're a couple of dangerous women, but we're softies at heart, kinda like these guys (awww...). The thing we're the most hazardous to is your "To Read" pile. 

spooning kittensWith that warning in mind, we've got a doozy for you: DANGEROUS WOMEN, an awesome collection of 22 original short stories co-edited by A Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozois, featuring contributions from bestselling authors, including Jim Butcher, Diana Gabaldon, Lev Grossman, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Brandon Sanderson, and Martin himself. Whether it's science fiction, fantasy, horror, mystery, or suspense, women are the stars, from feisty heroines down to villainess vixens.

Speaking of stars, DANGEROUS WOMEN already has THREE starred pre-publication reviews!

"Venerable editors Martin and Dozois (Warriors) have invited writers from many different genres of fiction to showcase the supposedly weaker sex’s capacity for magic, violence, and mayhem. These 22 brand-new short stories prove that women are men’s equals—at least—in lethal potential. This meaty collection delivers something for nearly every reader’s taste as it explores the heights that brave women can reach and the depths that depraved ones can plumb." Publishers Weekly, starred review

"VERDICT: The wide selection of authors guarantees something to please almost every reader's tastes." Library Journal, starred review

"When genre collections include this many big-name authors, they’re typically a grouping of series outtakes and Easter eggs. Readers...will surely be satisfied by these [series-related stories] and other entries. Everyone will find something to like here."Kirkus Reviews, starred review
