Let’s begin this week’s New Arrivals with a few novels. Basically, they are all completely different types of books.
The first book is the 1st paperback printing of a great Horror novel,
FINAL GIRL SUPPORT GROUP by Grady Hendrix.
Next, we have a humorous romance novel which brings a woman back to her hometown, uncovering family secrets, self-discovery and new love:
FLYING SOLO: A novel By Linda Holmes
The following fiction novel is actually considered literature, and takes place in three different time periods. Based on a true story, Horse is a novel of art and science, love and obsession, and our unfinished reckoning with racism.
HORSE: A NOVEL by Geraldine Brooks
Known as the “Queen of Beach Reads”, Elin Hildebrand delivers a page-turner about a Summer at a Nantucket hotel, with a bad reputation, and a new London Billionaire owner who is trying to fix it up, and the new General Manager of the hotel who is trying to keep everything together. Not to mention the fact that there is a ghost of a young chambermaid who was killed in a fire at the hotel lurking around. Romance.
THE HOTEL NANTUCKET by Elin Hildebrand
Now for the non-fiction books:
This week there are a few parenting books that might be interesting reads.
I’D LIKE TO PLAY ALONE, PLEASE: ESSAYS by Tom Segura is a humorous book about family, love and parenting.
HOW TO RAISE AN ANTIRACIST by Ibram X. Kendi is a book about parenting children on racism. This is also considered a political book, so I will put the following book next, which is also political:
WHAT IS A WOMAN?: ONE MAN’S JOURNEY TO ANSWER THE QUESTION OF A GENERATION by Matt Walsh tries to answer in a humorous yet disturbing way, “ Is a woman a woman just by feeling or acting a particular way? Aren’t gender roles just a “social construct”? Can a woman be “trapped in a man’s body”? Does being a woman mean anything at all?”
The last three books are all memoirs:
IF WE BREAK: A MEMOIR OF MARRIAGE, ADDICTION, AND HEALING by Kathleen Buhle (Hunter Biden’s ex)
ROUGH DRAFT: A MEMOIR BY Katy Tur (a journalist)
STILL ALRIGHT by Kenny Loggins (a Musician)
As always, Thank you for making our shelves your destination.
