Top 5 Books for 2018 (so far)

An American Marriage by Tayari Jones A young married couple must deal with the criminal justice system in the United States when one is wrongly convicted of a crime. 

The Word is Murder by Anthony Horowitz A book within a book that involves a mystery, from the author of Magpie Murders (another staff favourite!)  The Word is Murder is witty, sharp, and keeps you guessing until the last moment.

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi This young adult title (that has already been optioned for a film) is set in  West Africa and is an amazing adventure story packed with magic and African folklore.

Lands of Lost Borders by Kate Harris A non-fiction memoir about the author's bicycle journey on the Silk Road as a young woman.

The High Season by Judy Blundell A summer tale set in a small artistic community on Long Island which pits the
year-round locals vs the city cottage dwellers.
