Read all about it

Top Titles

“Watching You: A Novel” by Lisa Jewell. From Atria Books. Melville Heights is one of the nicest neighborhoods in Bristol, England; home to doctors and lawyers and old-money academics. It’s not the sort of place where people are brutally murdered in their own kitchens. But it is the sort of place where everyone has a secret. And everyone is watching you.

“We Are the Nerds” by Christine Lagorio-Chafkin.  From Hachette Books.

Reddit hails itself as “the front page of the Internet.” It’s the third most-visited website in the United States--and yet, millions of Americans have no idea what it is. “We Are the Nerds” is an engrossing look deep inside this captivating, maddening enterprise, whose army of obsessed users have been credited with everything from solving cold case crimes and spurring tens of millions of dollars in charitable donations to landing Donald Trump in the White House. 

Kid’s Corner

“How to Feed Your Parents” by Ryan Miller.  From Sterling Children’s Books.

Matilda Macaroni loves to try new foods, whether it’s her grandma’s jambalaya or sushi at a sleepover. But, in this fun, twisted picture book, it’s finicky mom and dad—not the child—who eat only pizza with pepperoni (delivered), burgers from a bag, or noodles from a box. Eager to experience new flavors, Matilda secretly sets out to learn how to cook, satisfy her hunger for something more . . . and expand her parents’ palates, too.

“In Focus: Cities (360 Degrees)” by Libby Walden.  From 360 Degrees.

Ten illustrators explore ten iconic cities, traveling the globe to find a fresh perspective. This super-sized book delves into the cultural, social, and historical identities of ten world-famous cities, from London to Sydney and New York to Tokyo. Readers can lift the gate-folded pages on every spread to find out more about each city!

“The Magical Unicorn Society Official Handbook” by Selwyn E. Phipps.  From Feiwel & Friends.

After centuries of mystery, the mythical Magical Unicorn Society has published its official handbook.

These learned lovers of unicorns have created a veritable treasure trove of unicorn lore―the facts, the fiction, the where, why and what of these elusive creatures. Discover where unicorns really live around the world, how to find them, and what they eat.
