Summer Time and the Reading's Easy

Looking for that perfect book to go along with your iced drink, under some much needed shade? Check out these new titles we have in store:

The Passage by Justin Cronin: Part one of a proposed trilogy, a literary apocalyptic vampire romp. Need I say more?

One Day by David Nicholls: A very funny, very smart, and very sweet story on the nature of love and relationships. The perfect beach read. Or grassy park read. Or cushy chair near a window read.

Fly Away Home by Jennifer Weiner: A senator's wife and daughters are thrust into the spotlight after his cheating heart becomes public, leading them to forge new bonds and reevaluate their lives. Classic Weiner.

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Steig Larsson: If you haven't cracked open a Steig Larsson book lately, then you ain't living. The third (and final!?!) installment does not disappoint. If you haven't, for some weird reason, had the pleasure of devouring this trilogy, start with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and follow it up with The Girl Who Played With Fire.

Matterhorn by Karl Marlantes: It's being hailed as one of the greatest Vietnam War novels of all time. So, maybe you should read it.
