Happy #BookBday (4/7/15 Edition)

Today we wish a happy #BookBday to MARTIN MARTEN by Brian Doyle, a brilliant coming-of-age story of a 14-year-old boy named Dave, and a marten named, well, Martin.

“There are crises large and small—a child lost in the woods, Martin’s surprise fight with that one-in-a-billion-stories-marten—but this telling of at least some of Wy’east’s tales flows along absorbingly, avoiding sentiment while imparting a quiet acceptance of the rhythms of the natural and human worlds. Highly recommended; even city slickers can love.” — Library Journal, starred review

And since we’ll be in Austin next week, we wish a happy EARLY #BookBday to EVERY FIFTEEN MINUTES by Lisa Scottoline.

Not only did this phenomenal standalone thriller about sociopaths get FOUR STARRED pre-pub reviews, it’s a May 2015 Indie Next selection, too! “In a nail-biting stand-alone with two heart-pounding climaxes and several pulse-racing twists, Scottoline grabs her readers by the jugular and won’t let go. Readers who crave an action-packed psychological thriller should add it to their wish lists.”
