bookbdayOh what a lovely day for a #BookBday!

ALL THAT FOLLOWED by Gabriel Urza
A Publishers Weekly Best of Summer 2015 selection, a Summer/Fall 2015 Indies Introduce pick, and an August 2015 Indie Next pick! This psychologically twisting debut novel about a politically-charged act of violence that echoes through a quiet Spanish town is “as subtle and enveloping as the txirimiri, a Basque word for ‘rain so fine that an umbrella is useless against it.’” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

FISHBOWL by Bradley Somer
An August 2015 Indie Next pick! A goldfish named Ian narrates the linked perspectives of the quirky residents he witnesses in an apartment building as he plunges from the 27th-floor balcony to the pavement. “Touching and well-written.” — Kirkus Reviews

THE LAST DAYS OF RABBIT HAYES by Anna McPartlin
A Fall 2015 Barnes & Noble Discover New Writers selection! A poignant and ultimately uplifting novel that traces the final decline of a feisty 40-year-old single mom whose seemingly ordinary life is filled with extraordinary people. “McPartlin very effectively captures a family during a traumatic moment. The novel is kept light with a measure of dry humor and many beautiful instances of love, leaving a lighter impression than one might expect. This novel will be torn from the shelves by fans of tearjerkers such as P.S. I LOVE YOU.” — Publishers Weekly

FLOOD OF FIRE by Amitav Ghosh
The stunningly vibrant final novel in the bestselling Ibis Trilogy (after SEA OF POPPIES and RIVER OF SMOKE). “Forbidden and betrayed love are the primary forces here, enacted with bawdy comedy and outright melodrama amid family concerns, secret deals, brutality, military battles, and the horrors of the drug trade. This feverishly detailed, vividly panoramic, tumultuous, funny, and heartbreaking tale offers a vigorous conclusion to Ghosh’s astutely complex and profoundly resonant geopolitical saga.” — Booklist, starred review

LAMP BLACK, WOLF GREY by Paula Brackston
In the latest enchanting tale from the New York Times bestselling author of THE WITCH’S DAUGHTER, a young artist goes to the Welsh mountainside in search of inspiration, but finds ancient legends and a mysterious man from the past—Merlin himself. “Braxton’s characters possess intriguing and ambiguous true natures, and her lush prose imbues the Welsh landscape with an enchantment all its own.” — Publishers Weekly
