Every now and then we encounter a new book that we're so excited about we want to shout it from the rooftops, so we have this special designation to distinguish it from the rest:
May V.I.B...
by Madeline Miller

"Circe  is such a unique and good book; it takes you on a journey from the first chapter and doesn't let you go. It had a fascinating examination of time because Circe is immortal and time has a rather different meaning for those who cannot die. It is beautifully structured, allowing the reader to follow Circe as she experienced the world. One of the most precious examinations was on Circe's experience of loss, because as an immortal, she lived on while others she loved, hated, befriended and mothered passed on. The writing is captivating, following the same strength and depth as Miller's other book,  The Song of Achilles . There is a philosophical tone to the whole book that worked for a story told with modern language. Miller dives right into the world of the gods and doesn't look back. She thrusts the reader into the world--warts and all--guiding one through the deception, lust and art of the Greek myths. The myths wave around Circe and while she is not a main hero, she participates and the alternative telling of those classic tales is refreshing." --  Mikaley Osley, Marketing and Events Manager

by Christine Mangan

"Set under Tangier’s red, hot desert sun, shining on glistening mosaic tiles,  Tangerine  is an extraordinary debut novel and a must read for summer! The novel begins with three men dragging a corpse out of the sea, leaving the reader to wonder who it is and how it ended up in there. The answer to the mystery lies within the alternating chapters between two unreliable women characters, Alice and Lucy. It doesn’t take long to settle in and become hooked on this juicy thriller, as author Christine Mangan writes a satisfying original! The best summer read for 2018!" --  Stephanie Coleman, Director of Buying
