Happy #BookBday (10/13/15 Edition)

Happy #BookBday to new nonfiction (and one heartwarming novel):

HUMANS OF NEW YORK: STORIES by Brandon Stanton
The follow-up to Stanton’s bestseller, HUMANS OF NEW YORK, is “a wondrous mix of races, ages, genders, and social classes, and on virtually every page is a surprise.” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) “This book is fantastic. It shows that despite all of our differences, whether it’s our looks or our backgrounds, we still have so much in common.” — Robin Roberts, Good Morning America

FRANK & AVA: In Love and War by John Brady
Thoroughly researched and reported, the love story of Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner is not another storybook version of a Hollywood romance, but a compelling drama of love and emotional war that left two celebrities wounded for life. “This honest and contemporary look at an almost mythical couple is a quick-paced and poignant tale that will appeal to a wide spectrum of readers.” — Library Journal

HEMINGWAY IN LOVE by A.E. Hotchner
Hemingway’s reflective account of his destructive Paris affair and how it affected the legendary life he rebuilt after, was told in June of 1961 to his best friend, the writer A.E. Hotchner, who’s kept the story secret until now. “Hotchner’s account is freighted with nostalgia and sadness on several levels.” — Booklist
Listen to an excerpt of the audiobook.

EXTREME OWNERSHIP: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin
Highly decorated Navy SEALs, now successful businessmen, show readers how to lead and win in business and in life with principles learned on the battlefield. “EXTREME OWNERSHIP is a book every leader should read. My former U.S. Navy SEAL teammates Leif Babin and Jocko Willink share great war stories from the Battle of Ramadi and valuable leadership lessons learned that apply directly to business and life.” – Marcus Luttrell, author of LONE SURVIVOR

THE GOOD NEIGHBOR by Amy Sue Nathan
“Nathan’s latest swings unexpectedly from lighthearted romantic comedy to a serious examination of honesty and friendship. Izzy and her friends sense that they’re getting older and need to take life seriously but hesitate to let go of their youth, a problem typical of middle-class Gen Xers. A tale for readers who enjoy humorous women’s fiction that explores deeper themes.” — Booklist
