The Bone Clocks

With the sweeping global vision and ability to sum up whole eras of time that he's become known for, along with a fascinating dose of fantasy, The Bone Clocks is David Mitchell's most enthralling and illuminating novel yet. Gorgeously written, bracingly intelligent, poignant, and occasionally very funny, The Bone Clocks is one of my favorite novels this year.


We Are Not Ourselves

This touching family saga follows Eileen Tumulty from childhood through late midlife. Stoic and resourceful, she strives to make a better existence for herself and her family than her hard-luck upbringing would allow. A realistic portrayal of the triumphs, tragedies, and regrets many of us face.


One Kick

Cain begins a new series — featuring an engaging, intelligent, badass protagonist named Kick — with more of the great writing, multifaceted characters, and heart-pounding plot twists her readers know and love. Fans of the Archie Sheridan/Gretchen Lowell series or mystery lovers who have yet to encounter Cain should not miss this one.


Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods

An amazing retelling of Greek mythology told from the point of view of Riordan's Heroes of Olympus character Percy Jackson. Percy narrates the text in his hilariously sarcastic yet informative way with fantastic artwork from John Rocco, illustrator of the Heroes of Olympus series and a Caldecott honoree.


The Organized Mind

It's easy to get overwhelmed by the deluge of information you encounter from minute to minute — the human brain just isn't wired to process it all. But there's hope. Levitin can help you understand how best to interact with your environment to maximize efficiency... and minimize the chaos!


Uni the Unicorn

From the author of Little Pea, Spoon, and Duck! Rabbit! comes a uniquely magical tale of Uni the Unicorn. Uni is the only unicorn who believes little girls are real! Lovely illustrations by Brigette Barrager make this a wonderful and memorable read.


The Rule of Thoughts

Michael is faced with the terrifying truth: the plot to implant artificial intelligence into unsuspecting gamers has begun. Will all of humanity fall under the control of the Mortality Doctrine? An action-packed read that hurtles the reader to a thrilling conclusion.


The Messy Baker

With chapter titles such as "Crumbly," "Drippy," and "Flaky," how can you not get "hungry" looking at the recipes in this fantastic baking book? Charmian Christie brings the best recipes from her popular blog to your home kitchen in a very approachable, relaxed (and delicious) way.


The Fourteenth Goldfish

Discovering the secret to eternal youth is great and all, but middle school is weird enough without having your suddenly-13-years-old-again scientist grandpa hanging around. In The Fourteenth Goldfish, Ellie's in for a wild ride — big adventure, mystery, and lots of cool science.


The Trauma of Everyday Life

Mark Epstein masterfully examines the intersection between psychotherapy and Buddhism, and his new book focuses on a fascinating subject within that convergence: trauma. Using even the Buddha's own personal traumas, Epstein pens an exploration that is wise, insightful, and surprisingly uplifting.
