Here are just some of the books we're talking about at Powell's.

  1. Leviathan Wakes

    Leviathan Wakes is an excellent, fast-paced, well-thought-out version of a near-future, space-faring humanity. Full of actual science, realistic characters, and a believable human future, the novel contains some very intriguing ideas about space combat and possible alien life. I'd recommend this book to hard-core science fiction lovers along with just about anyone.

  2. Liar, Temptress, Solider, Spy: Four Women Undercover in the Civil War

    Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy is the true story of four women fighting for their countries during the Civil War. It's a stunning narrative compiled from personal letters, covert correspondence, and arrest records! The Civil War pit brother against brother, but as Karen Abbott eloquently proves through this book, it also pit sister against sister. This book has everything from Pinkerton spies to swords sewn into hoop skirts to messages hidden in elaborate hair styles. I loved this book and so will the history buff in your life.

  3. The Secret Place

    Tana French's talent for gorgeously crafted psychological mysteries shines in The Secret Place, the latest installment of her Dublin Murder Squad series. The narrative centers on the murder of a boy in the gardens of an exclusive girls' school, but its real drama is in the fraught relationships between teenage girls and the awkward partnership of the detectives working the case. French perfectly captures the slang and posturing of girls and cops alike, making every moment of the novel as engrossing as the whodunit.

  4. The Witch's Boy

    Ned is a boy with a curse and Aine is the child of a bandit king. Together they encounter an enchanted forest, powerful stones, feuding kingdoms, magic, greed, death, war, forgiveness, and peace when they discover friendship conquers all. This is a true joy and a wonder to read.

  5. Trial by Fire

    Everything is falling apart in Lily's life and she wants to disappear. Suddenly she finds herself in an alternate universe where powerful magic reigns and her evil twin self rules with an iron hand. Lily's weaknesses become her strengths as she fights to save this mirror world.

  6. Julia's House for Lost Creatures

    From the author of the beloved children's graphic novel series Zita the Spacegirl comes this wonderful picture book. Julia and her walking house move to a town by the sea and find things a little too quiet. Soon she hosts mythical creatures of all sorts, and they all have to learn to behave themselves and live together. See what happens when you bring goblins, mermaids, trolls, and dragons all together to live under one roof! Amazing illustrations and an extremely captivating plot make this a fantastic pick for all ages.

  7. Jackaby

    A unique mystery set in 1892 New England told with warmth, humor, and suspense. The narrator, Abigail, sees the details in the ordinary, and Jackaby (a combination of Dr. Who and Sherlock Holmes) has the power to see the supernatural. This is a promising start to a new series.

    Recommended by Richard C. September 5, 2014


  8. The Happiness of Pursuit

    Always wanted to make croissants? Dreamed of learning to surf or opening a cat sanctuary? Whoever said it's not about the destination but the journey was only half right. Bliss lies in pursuing the seemingly impossible with steely tenacity, and Guillebeau offers solid advice and tales of his own journeys to inspire you to pursue your wildest dreams.

    Recommended by Mary Jo September 5, 2014


  9. The Children Act

    Ian McEwan's newest is a beautiful exploration of the distance we create between ourselves and other people and the irrevocable damage it causes. How can we move through life, the novel asks, from the unshakeable belief in the rightness of things in adolescence, into the gray areas of adult life, without shutting our gates and filling our moats with dragons and water? The book itself is short, but the questions it asks are the kind you will spend the rest of your life trying to answer.

  10. The Little Prince

    There are always books that we won't read for various reasons. Maybe it has to do with the genre or the author, or the person who recommended it, but for whatever reason, certain books just don't appeal to us. This was true for me when it came to The Little Prince. I am not sure when I decided not to read it, but this is where the book stood in my life.

    Recently I came across a quote from The Little Prince and finally decided it was time to put aside my assumptions and read it. There is nothing I can say that hasn't already been said about the book. It's full of sadness and melancholy but also longing and love. I consider myself a lucky person who gets to look at a field of wheat and be reminded of someone I have tamed.

  11. 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.

    Recommended by Jill Owens August 28, 2014


  12. 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.
