Happy #BookBday (8/30/16 Edition)

Happy #BookBday to an old favorite and a new talent:

A GREAT RECKONING by Louise Penny
The #1 August 2016 LibraryReads pick (read Barbara Hoffert’s Library Journal interview with Penny), a September 2016 Indie Next pick, a BEA 2016 “Shout ‘n Share” pick, and FOUR STARRED REVIEWS! “The lyrical 12th entry in bestseller Penny’s remarkable series, which has won multiple Agatha awards, finds former Chief Insp. Armand Gamache coming out of retirement to clean up the corrupt Süreté Academy du Québec. This complex novel deals with universal themes of compassion, weakness in the face of temptation, forgiveness, and the danger of falling into despair and cynicism over apparently insurmountable evils.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

CURIODDITY by Paul Jenkins
New York Times bestselling graphic novel and video game writer Paul Jenkins debuts with a novel that’s a cross between Neil Gaiman’s NEVERWHERE and Robin Sloan’s MR. PENUBRA’S 24-HOUR BOOKSTORE. “Fast pacing, clever writing, and total commitment to absurdity make for an entertaining read.” — Booklist
