ANNE’S BACK!!!

Dearest Librarians,
Once again, I’m baaaaack!! My maternity leave flew by and while it was bittersweet to leave baby Martin and big brother Daniel this morning, I’m so excited to be back and working with all of you again.

Now you might think I spent the last 3 months in a haze of snuggly cuddles and making fun family memories with trips to the beach, the zoo, and going apple picking (and you’d be right), but I also read a LOT:

EXPOSED by Lisa Scottoline
CLASS MOM by Laurie Gelman
SOURDOUGH by Robin Sloan (a LibraryReads pick!)
DEAR FAHRENHEIT 451: Love and Heartbreak in the Stacks by Annie Spence (another LR pick you loved!)
FRESH COMPLAINT by Jeffrey Eugenides
THE ESSENCE OF MALICE by Ashley Weaver
THE GREAT ALONE by Kristin Hannah
FORCE OF NATURE by Jane Harper
A DANGEROUS CROSSING by Ausma Zehanat Khan
GIRLS BURN BRIGHTER by Shobha Rao
THE HUSH by John Hart
GLIMPSE by Jonathan Maberry
BROKEN ICE by Matt Goldman
JAR OF HEARTS by Jennifer Hillier

And while we didn’t publish them, THE HATE U GIVE by Angie Thomas and YOU WILL KNOW ME by Megan Abbott (currently reading) are so, SO good. Happy reading, friends.

Cheers,
Anne

Dead Woman Walking by Sharon Bolton

“The Reacher-like thrills leading there generate adrenaline-fueled pleasure. Bolton, who also writes as S. J. Bolton, delivers another strong, resourceful female character in Jessica Lane.”–Booklist

“Bolton’s (Little Black Lies) latest stand-alone hits the ground running…VERDICT This will be the book of the fall for Bolton’s fans and anyone who treasures the experience of staying up late reading just to find out what happens next.”–Library Journal

The Essence of Malice by Ashley Weaver

“Sparkling…”–Publishers Weekly

“This is an excellent entrée into a delightful (librarian-penned) series.”–Booklist

Good Me, Bad Me by Ali Land

“A deliberate pace and a skillfully woven plot conspire to create a visceral read that’s at once a gripping psychological thriller and a devastating exploration of the damage wrought by childhood trauma.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Land asks if we are doomed to repeat the sins of our fathers—or, in this case, mothers—in her assured, creepy debut… Readers will be more than happy to go along for the ride and may be surprised how they feel about the conclusion, proving the unmistakable spell that Land has cast. Sly, unsettling, and impossible to put down.”—Kirkus Reviews

The Seagull by Ann Cleeves

“Engrossing…This nuanced, adroitly paced tale should satisfy both series fans and new readers.”–Publishers Weekly

Secrets in Death by J.D. Robb

“It is no secret that Robb’s Eve Dallas series continues to be one of the most popular brands in crime fiction. Add that to this installment’s perfectly executed plot, snappy pacing, and judicious sprinkling of dry humor, and you have a particularly enjoyable treat for loyal fans and curious new readers alike. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: With an initial run of 750,000 copies and copious publicity, Robb’s new Eve Dallas title will be heavily requested.”–Booklist

“Robb continues to impress…”–Publishers Weekly

The Woman Who Couldn’t Scream by Christina Dodd

“With the fourth wildly original addition to her Virtue Falls series, Dodd takes more than a few creative risks and then brilliantly succeeds in this sexy, compulsively readable tale of romantic suspense.”–Booklist

“Intriguing characters (including an especially horrifying villain), twin romances (Kateri and Stag’s prickly sparring as well as Merida and Benedict’s trust-challenged bond), and a complex plot that reveals itself with chilling precision keep the pages turning. VERDICT Tense, taut, and beautifully paced, this latest addition to Dodd’s series is another stunner; it will appeal to romance and suspense fans alike. Dodd (Because I’m Watching) lives in Washington State.”–Library Journal, starred review
