The Institute
by Stephen King

Submitted by Amanda D.
I really enjoyed this Stephen King novel. I don’t read everything by him, but when I do I am reminded why I enjoy his novels. King holds your hand and tells you a really good story. This book might also resonate with fans of Stranger Things due to the main characters, theme, and tone.
(New Fiction)

Semicolon: The Past, Present, and Future of a Misunderstood Mark
by Cecelia Watson

Submitted by Molly J.
If you’re a grammar nerd, this book may be for you. It goes into painstaking detail through the origins and present day use of the semicolon. I felt it didn’t need to be covered in an entire book, but it definitely has a lot of unique information that might be more intriguing to someone more interested in grammar and language.
(New Non-Fiction)

The Feather Thief:
Beauty, Obsession, and the Natural History Heist of the Century
by Kirk Wallace Johnson

Submitted by Kelly K.
An amazing true tale of greed and obsession and an unbelievable crime solved but left unpunished. This story will stay with you long after you have finished reading it.
