Happy #BookBday (11/29/16 Edition)

Happy #BookBday to three great new reads:

NORMAL by Warren Ellis
LR iconA November 2016 LibraryReads pick & December 2016 Indie Next pick! In this provocative near-future techno-thriller, a foresight strategist (a.k.a.: people who think about geoengineering and smart cities and ways to evade Our Coming Doom) arrives at Normal Head in the wilds of Oregon to unplug and recover, when a patient goes missing from his locked bedroom, leaving nothing but a pile of insects in his wake. “A crackling, funny, and frightening horror story from a unique voice in genre lit.” — Kirkus Reviews

TO CAPTURE WHAT WE CANNOT KEEP by Beatrice Colin
A December 2016 Indie Next pick & Maximum Shelf Awareness selection! Set against the construction of the Eiffel Tower, this novel charts the relationship between a young widow and an engineer who, despite constraints of class and wealth, fall in love. “Hauntingly melancholic in places, Colin’s story moves like wisps of fog through Parisian streets, capturing moments of both gaiety and tragedy. This exquisitely written, shadowy historical novel will appeal to a wide variety of readers, including fans of the Belle Époque.” — Library Journal, starred review readmoreremove
