The Thirteenth Tale
by Diane Setterfield

Submitted by Lynn M.
This reminded me of Wuthering Heights, in a post-television-era sort of way. By far the most ‘gothic’ modern novel I’ve ever read, but it isn’t really horror. I really enjoyed reading it. (Adult Fiction)

In Siberia
by Colin Thurbron

Submitted by Lynn M.
This late-Cold-War travel memoir, though now somewhat dated, gives readers the chance to visit a fascinating place full of interesting people with someone who writes very, very well. (Adult Non-Fiction)

When the English Fall
by David Williams

Submitted by Emily D.
Told in diary entries, an Amish farmer tells the story of his life after a solar storm collapses modern society. This story has a totally unique perspective from your typical dystopia/apocalypse. Can modern Americans adopt Amish-like lives in order to survive or will a different instinct kick in?
(Adult SciFi/Fantasy)

Cucumber Quest: The Doughnut Kingdom
by Gigi D. G.

Cucumber did not ask to be a legendary hero – he really just wants to be a magician. Unfortunately, he’s the one a prophecy says can defeat an evil queen bent on world domination. Cucumber is joined by his way more heroic sister, Almond, and a few more friends on the way. Such a fun, fast story to read with beautiful illustrations.
