Stop by the Devereaux Library for your summertime reading

My Not So Perfect Life: A Novel by Sophie Kinsella

“[There are ] many laugh-out-loud hilarious moments in this feel-good novel about social media and personal branding, and the hectic realities behind our perfect online lives.”

Broken Trust (Badge Of Honor) by W.E.B. Griffin

“Another sharp examination of crime and police work in Philadelphia. . . Combine[s] great local color with cases that illustrate the special challenges faced by cops in volatile urban areas [and] shows us the politics of law enforcement in major cities, where perception can be more important than crime statistics. . . Griffin and Butterworth keep us turning pages without resorting to excessive melodrama. Straightforward urban realism mixed with characters we care about have kept their formula fresh.”

The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer

"Fans will likely tear through The Chemist, just as they did with the Twilight novels and with The Host.... Our heroine is very good at staying alive.... The book hit on an appealing theme. Chris is an expert in her field, one that happens to be male dominated. Her peers are out to get her. She has to watch her back constantly.... With so many popular novels out there featuring unreliable female narrators stuck in various suburbs, it was nice to read about a woman who gets out and has a lot to do."

Curious Minds: A Knight and Moon Novel by Janet Evanovich and Phoef Sutton

“Evanovich’s comedic timing and pacing are evident on every page.”

Small Great Things: A Novel by Jodi Picoult

“A novel that puts its finger on the very pulse of the nation that we live in today . . . a fantastic read from beginning to end, as can always be expected from Picoult, this novel maintains a steady, page-turning pace that makes it hard for readers to put down. It also allows for conversations to be had and for people to sit back and look at their lives, actions (past and present) and wonder how they will move forward. This is a fantastic book not only because it addresses something that happens in America and around the world every day, but it also shows us that change is possible too.”
