The Great Believers
by Rebecca Makkai

Submitted by Terri S.
The Great Believers is a powerful and tender story of friendship, love and redemption set in Chicago in the 1980’s and Paris in 2015. This is one of those novels that really pulls the reader in, with deep feeling and affection for the characters and a storyline that just won’t let go. I will carry this story, these characters with me for a long time, and I think probably this is my favorite book, so far, this year. (Adult Fiction) 

Norse Mythology
by Neil Gaiman

Submitted by Kelly F.
Thor is all the rage in movie theaters these days. Read about him, his brother Loki, and father god Odin in this future classic by Neil Gaiman. Spend time in the frozen North with the Norse pantheon and marvel at the cunning, the crazy bravado, and the rough beauty of these tempestuous characters. Gaiman has gone deep into source material to craft this book of pure entertainment, with mythological roots as strong and old as Thor himself. (Adult Fiction)

Cottage by the Sea
by Debbie Macomber

Submitted by Kelly K.
As we wind down the summer, there is still time to make room for a satisfying beach read.  Cottage by the Sea is heartfelt and appealing, a reliable and rewarding story. Sometimes predictable is just what we want – happy endings and resolutions that remind us all things (especially good things) are indeed possible. (Adult Fiction)
