Best Book Bets - 6/12/12

Summer Reads Out of The Gate! 
This summer should prove to be a gold mine of great summer reads and this Tuesday is the beginning of the heavy hitters. Lots to get excited about!

Heading Out to Wonderful
by Robert Goolrick
We’re big fans here of his debut novel, A Reliable Wife, the #1 New York Times bestseller. His new book tells the story of a loner who comes to a small town in Virginia after World War II and falls in love with a married woman. He has a knack at making human foibles into suspenseful drama. This book should not disappoint.

The Red House
by Mark Haddon
The writer of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time (a summer read on MANY school lists) and A Spot of Bother does it again! A British extended family vacationing together. Told from several viewpoints, it is a story of struggling to connect and missing each other along the way. Highly anticipated.

Porch Lights  
by Dorthea Benton Frank 
Top of your beach bag with this quintessential summer read. This is the latest book by this New York Times best-selling author. The protagonist and her son move back to the South Carolina island where she grew up after her husband dies. The move to the beach is just one step back to hope. The worthwhile character’s redemption makes this the perfect vacation novel.

Young Adult Release

by Lauren Kate 
This is the highly anticipated finale to the well written Fallen series. Lovers of paranormal romance will be asking for this. If they haven't read the series, get them started. Angels battle Lucifer. Love, curses, epic battles. its all here. It begins, "The sky is dark with wings..." and the battle for heaven has begun!
