HALL OF FAME AUTHORS


Our September Library Reads list arrived yesterday and there are some great books on the way. Six Hall of Fame Authors have books on the list, including Fredrik Backman’s Anxious People. “What happens when a group of house hunters is taken hostage by an incompetent bank robber? Not what you expect. Filled with quirky, troubled characters, Backman’s latest shows us what most people need is kindness, understanding and one another.” (9-8) Janine Walsh

Popular author, Jodi Picoult’s newest is The Book of Two Ways. “This deeply-felt story oscillates between past and present in the life of Dawn McDowell, a death doula and former Egyptologist. Rich with metaphor and fascinating Egyptology, the novel benefits from being told soley from Dawn’s point of view, pulling readers deep into her world.” (9-22) Cari Dubiel

In A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik, “Scholomance is an elite school of magic, where only the strongest survive, literally. Deadly beasts hide around every corner, and the spells learned in class could save your life. Adventure, world-building, friendships formed in adversity, and a murderous school? Irresistible!” (9-29) Sharon Layburn

Don’t Look For Me is Wendy Walker’s new book. “Years after Molly accidentally kills her young daughter in a car accident, her family remains torn apart by grief. When she vanishes one stormy night, the authorities determine she ran away. But when her elder daughter investigates, she realizes the truth may be more sinister.” (9-15) Vanessa Phillips

Ruth Ware is a terrific author and her latest, One By One, looks promising. “This delicious locked-room thriller is set amid a group of wealthy tech startup entrepreneurs snowbound at a ski chalet in the French Alps. It’s And Then There Were None updated for our tech era. This is highly recommended for suspense fans.” (9-8) Ann-Marie Anderson

Tools of Engagement by Tessa Bailey is “the third entry in the Hot and Hammered series and brings back supporting characters Bethany and Wes for their own steamy enemies-to-lovers romance set in the world of HGTV-style renovation. The book also is notable for its positive portrayal of Bethany’s struggles against anxiety.” (9-22) Bethany Dietrich

The top pick for the month of September is When No One is Watching by Alyssa Cole. “The gentrification of her beloved Brooklyn neighborhood has longtime resident Sydney Green mourning what’s lost. Striking up an uneasy alliance with new neighbor, Theo, she starts research for a walking tour to highlight the area’s rich history and diversity. She quickly comes to realize something far more sinister is going on. A sense of mounting dread and some startling twists and turns will keep readers turning the pages. Where have all those old neighbors gone? This is for fans of An Unwanted Guest, The Woman in Cabin Ten, and Watching You.” (9-1) Beth Mills

School has started and we’re praying that the school personnel and students all have a safe, happy and healthy year. Happy reading and we’ll look for you after school in the library!
