Here's a list of the latest submissions to our "Terrific Books" box, located next to the main desk. Check out what other people in our community are reading, and leave a few suggestions the next time you come in!

Ming TeaMing Tea Murder, by Laura Childs

"I enjoy the tea shop and wish there was one like it around here!"


name of warThe Name of War, by Jill Lepore

King Philip's War, the excruciating racial war--colonists against Indians--that erupted in New England in 1675, was, in proportion to population, the bloodiest in American history. Some even argued that the massacres and outrages on both sides were too horrific to "deserve the name of a war."

Telling the story of what may have been the bitterest of American conflicts, and its reverberations over the centuries, Lepore has enabled us to see how the ways in which we remember past events are as important in their effect on our history as were the events themselves.

edgar sawtelleThe Story of Edgar Sawtelle, by David Wroblewski

A tale reminiscent of "Hamlet" that also celebrates the alliance between humans and dogs follows speech-disabled Wisconsin youth Edgar, who bonds with three yearling canines and struggles to prove that his sinister uncle is responsible for his father's death.


breaking pointThe Breaking Point, by Jefferson Bass

Called in to identify some remains, Dr. Brockton finds his life plunged into chaos when his identification is called into question, a killer from his past returns, and his wife delivers some news that changes everything.

"(I) enjoyed the interaction of the different branches of police to solve the mysterious plane crash."

turbulenceTurbulence, by Samit Basu

Aman Sen is smart, young, ambitious and going nowhere. He thinks this is because he doesn't have the right connections--but then he gets off a plane from London to Delhi and discovers that he has turned into a communications demigod. Indeed, everyone on Aman's flight now has extraordinary abilities corresponding to their innermost desires.

resistanceResistance, by Samit Basu (Sequel to Turbulence)

How would you adapt to a world of superhumans? And how far would you go to stop them destroying it? In 2020, eleven years after the passengers of flight BA 142 developed extraordinary abilities corresponding to their innermost desires, the world is overrun with supers. Some use their powers for good, some for evil, and some just want to pulverize the world's most iconic monuments and star in their own reality show. But now, from New York to Tokyo, someone is hunting down supers, killing heroes and villains both, and it's up to the Unit to stop them.

"Both clever and fun!"


betrayalBetrayal, by Robert Fitzpatrick

A complete account of the true-crime story introduced in the Jack Nicholson film, The Departed, traces how the author, a top FBI agent, confronted internal corruption and political adversaries to catch, prosecute and convict feared gang lord Whitey Bulger.


the nightingaleThe Nightingale, by Kristin Hannah

"A wonderful historic fiction book about 2 sisters in WWII."

Reunited when the elder's husband is sent to fight in World War II, French sisters Vianne and Isabelle find their bond as well as their respective beliefs tested by a world that changes in horrific ways.


"Just read all Kate Morton books - Very Good!"
