Happy Belated #BookBday (10/7/15 Edition)

Congrats to this bunch of new books that hit the shelves yesterday:

THE CLASP by Sloane Crosley
Crosley’s “signature wit is sharp as ever” (New York Times Book Review) in her first novel about three friends who reunite for a friend’s wedding in Miami, then end up on a road trip in France in pursuit of a priceless necklace. “Crosley’s smart, sardonic, sometimes-zany, yet also sensitive story is…a real gem.” — Kirkus Reviews
Bonus:
watch the hilarious book trailer starring Amanda Seyfried!

BLISS by Shay Mitchell & Michaela Blaney
A fun, sexy novel about following your bliss into wonderful and terrible places, written by Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell and her best friend. “Entertaining, unabashedly escapist…” — Booklist

PRETENDING TO DANCE by Diane Chamberlain
It’s 1990 and fourteen-year-old Molly Arnette lives with her extended family on one hundred acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains. But Molly’s security begins to crumble as she becomes aware of a plan taking shape that she can’t stop which threatens to turn her idyllic summer into a nightmare. “A multilayered, poignant novel. Reminiscent of a Sarah Dessen or Sharon Creech novel, PRETENDING TO DANCE proves that a coming-of-age story can happen at any time in your life.” — Booklist

SLAUGHTERHOUSE 90210 by Maris Kreizman
The book for anyone with a Netflix account and a library card, SLAUGHTERHOUSE 90210 matches poignant passages from literature with popular moments from television, film, and real life. “This book is a real live cultural argument…presented with blunt evidence rather than explanation, that works of what we consider high and low culture can not only be appreciated by the same people, but can be placed in direct conversation with each other.” — NPR
