General Fiction
Seven Days of Us Seven Days of Us by Francesca Hornak
It's Christmas, and for the first time in years the entire Birch family will be under one roof. Younger, unabashedly frivolous daughter Phoebe is fixated on her upcoming wedding, while her older sister, Olivia, a doctor, deals with the culture shock of being immersed in first-world problems after returning from treating an epidemic abroad. Their father, Andrew, sequesters himself in his study writing scathing restaurant reviews and remembering his glory days as a war correspondent. But his wife, Emma, is hiding a secret that will turn the whole family upside down. In close proximity, not much can stay hidden for long, and as revelations and long-held tensions come to light, nothing is more shocking than the unexpected guest who's about to arrive...

The Whole Town's Talking

Mystery, Thriller, & Suspense
End Game End Game by David Baldacci
Will Robie and Jessica Reel are the ones the government calls in when the utmost secrecy is required to take out those who plot violence and mass destruction against the United States. But now their handler, Blue Man, is missing, with no communications since he'd taken a rare vacation in rural Colorado. Sent to investigate, Robie and Reel arrive in the small town of Grand to discover that it has its own share of problems. But lying in wait in Grand is an even more insidious and sweeping threat, one that may shake the very foundations of America. And when Robie and Reel find themselves up against an adversary with superior firepower and a home-court advantage, they'll be lucky if they make it out alive, with or without Blue Man...

The End We Start From The End We Start From by Megan Hunter
As London is submerged below floodwaters, a woman gives birth to her first child, Z. Days later, she and her baby are forced to leave their home in search of safety. They head north through a newly dangerous country seeking refuge from place to place. The story traces fear and wonder as the baby grows, thriving and content against all the odds. The End We Start From is an indelible and elemental first book -- a lyrical vision of the strangeness and beauty of new motherhood, and a tale of endurance in the face of ungovernable change.

Volunteer Picks
Artemis Artemis by Andy Weir
Andy Weir has done it again! Made me read and rave about a science fiction book. I never read science fiction, nor am I a fan of fantasy or paranormal, but I am a huge fan of Andy Weir. His wit, humor, and amazing storytelling ability are addictive. Artemis is a city on the Moon but it could be a city anywhere -- sure, you have to do things differently because of no atmosphere, etc., but basically love is love, greed is greed, smuggling is smuggling, murder is murder, no matter where it takes place. I loved The Martian, but Artemis is, IMO, even better. I loved the personal interactions between the characters, and I loved Jazz's determination and her somewhat skewed sense of what is right and what is wrong. Artemis is a true adventure story with a lot of really neat science thrown in. Think a futuristic MacGyver/Mission Impossible with a young female protagonist.
