Happy #BookBday (7/7/14 Edition)

Break out the cake! It’s time for another #BookBday! Today we celebrate:

LANDLINE by Rainbow Rowell
Do we really need to say anything more about the #1 July LibraryReads pick? Didn’t think so. (But oh, how we love Rainbow!)

HIGH AS THE HORSES’ BRIDLES by Scott Cheshire
An urgent, electric debut novel about inheritance, belief, and a father and son divided by a dangerous prophecy. “Cheshire tackles life’s biggest issues through the persona of Josiah, whose evangelistic heritage is finally revealed, in a narrative studded with insights about the human condition. An impressively crafted literary first novel.” — Booklist

THE LAST KINGS OF SARK by Rosa Rankin-Gee
“As in Tim O’Brien’s THE THINGS THEY CARRIED, the narrator’s awareness of story­telling conventions create opportunities to reflect on how memories form, and fans of Audrey Niffenegger’s THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE will enjoy the ebb and flow of time. Debut author Rankin-Gee’s keen insights into romantic negotiations belie her youth. The confident narrative will be a shot in the arm for bored book club planners, and the fluid sexuality will be a welcome (if overdue) offering for readers of LGBT fiction.” — Library Journal, starred review

NEIL ARMSTRONG: A Life of Flight by Jay Barbree
“Veteran news correspondent Barbree offers an intimate view into the life of Neil Armstong (1930-2012), his friend as well as a national hero and very private person. This easy-to-read, compelling, and well-written view of an American hero is recommended for those interested in history, biography, early space programs around the world, and the science of space flight.” — Library Journal, starred review
