The Heap The Missing American American Dirt Buried to the Brim 

9780062957733 The Heap 1/7/2020
"The Heap is fiction that is reminiscent of Pynchon and Philip K. Dick in the best way possible. Los Verticales was the largest tower-based urban community in the world and after an unexplained collapse, the rubble has come to be known as the Heap. Orville, a Dig Hand charged with sifting through the rubble, searches for his brother Bernard, who is alive underneath the wreckage and broadcasting on the radio. Orville calls his brother daily, their conversations are live for everyone to hear... until one day he turns on the radio and hears someone else impersonating him on the airwaves. What follows is a story that questions capitalism, corporate control, and conspiracy at the highest levels. In a community that once aspired to be all-inclusive, exclusivity and estrangement become more apparent as the Dig Hands dig deeper into the Heap and what it once was." -- Stuart McCommon, Novel, Memphis, TN

9781525836268 The Followers 1/14/2020
"That's it. I'm throwing my phone in a river and going offline for good. Terrifying, hilarious, brilliant, and breathtakingly paced, Followers shows us what the future might look like if we let our tech-addicted, social-media-driven habits get the best of us. Angelo's vision of the near future -- and how it unfolds for this ensemble cast of friends, frenemies, followers, and family -- scares and entertains in equal measure. Every "influencer" on Instagram needs to read it ASAP.."-- Mary Laura Philpott, Parnassus Books, Nashville, TN

9781250209764 American Dirt 1/21/2020
"Cummins has written a real tour de force with American Dirt. The story follows Lydia and her son as they run north to the US to escape the drug cartel leader who killed the rest of their family in Mexico. But it becomes something much more universal as it explores the journey that so many migrants have undertaken, whether in search of jobs or a better life or to escape certain death, and all the ways that this journey can impact lives" -- Melissa Oates, Fiction Addiction, Greenville, SC

9781984804723 Buried to the Brim 1/28/2020
"Scarlett is happily contemplating married life to her fiance, Harry, when he brings his favorite aunt Betty to meet her. And Betty brings her adorable corgi, Freddy. But when Betty is kept out of the dog show she just knows Freddy is finally going to win, Scarlett finds herself in the middle of a dog show as well as another murder investigation. And Aunt Betty is the prime suspect!I love all of McKinlay's mystery series' and Buried to the Brim is no exception. I love how the characters are all silly without being over the top and the mystery is always going to keep you guessing up to the last minute." -- Jennifer Jones, Bookmiser, Roswell, GA

A Long Petal of the Sea Shine! Almost American Girl Love Unscripted 

9781984820150 A Long Petal of the Sea 1/21/2020
"The story of the Dalmau pulls at the heart yet brings countless smiles with it. Allende's gorgeous imagery takes readers through the Spanish Civil War and the refugee experience in Chile and Venezuela. Each new decade and move creates a new set of hardships, but they always find joy hidden in the saddest parts of the human experience. A story about history, adventure, and love, A Long Petal of the Sea offers hope for the new year and future.." -- Karyn Cumming, Fountain Bookstore, Richmond, VA

9780062938558 Highfire 1/28/2020
"Just like My Father's Dragon---except the boy is a juvenile delinquent and the dragon chugs Absolut."-- Lyn Roberts, Square Books, Oxford, MS

9780062685094 Almost American Girl 1/28/2020
"If you are a fan of immigrant stories, Robin Ha's graphic memoir based on her move from Seoul, Korea, to Alabama and then Virginia is a must-read. Anyone who has inhabited the liminal space of not feeling quite American enough to fit in in the United States, but feeling too American when returning to the country of one's birth will identify with this book. " -- Kate Storhoff, Bookmarks, Winston-Salem, NC

9781984826879 Love Unscripted 2/11/2020
"A lovingly crafted grown-up coming of age tale, Love, Unscripted muses on what it means to grow into your future, and out of your youthful early years of being an adult, all while trying to figure out just what went wrong with the person you thought was your one true love. Alternating between moments which are funny, bittersweet, lovely, heartbreaking, awkward, and ultimately hopeful, all with a main character who is incredibly relatable, Love, Unscripted is a slow-burning masterpiece on how we learn to love ourselves, and someone else, and features an ending which sublimely captures the best possible tone on which to end the story which it was closing. In fact, the ending of Love, Unscripted was so utterly and phenomenally right, that I hugged the book to my chest for a solid minute after I finished it, because a novel has not made me feel so content with the story I have just embarked on, and so hopeful about life in general in a good long while, and I just wanted to hold on to that feeling for a little bit longer. Love, Unscripted is hands down one of the best books I’ve read in 2019, and one of the books I’m most looking forward to sharing with people in 2020." -- Lucy Perkins-Wagel, Copperfish Books, Punta Gorda, FL

A Long Time Coming We Wish You Luck Homie The Authenticity Project 

9781496441539 A Long Time Coming 1/7/2020
"Great character development and a compelling narrative. I think this will make a good book club pick for its family dynamics and themes of family secrets, infidelity, and end-of-life issues. Despite all of its heavy themes, it's a joy to read. Granny B, with all her flaws, is a treasure." -- Angela Schroeder, Sunrise Books, High Point, NC

9780525534938 We Wish You Luck 1/14/2020
"A quiet novel with big payoff. I was immediately intrigued by the narrative voice; the story of what happened at a low residency MFA program (the students meet every June and January and go home to their regular lives the rest of the year) is told through the cumulative voice of the residents, minus the three most talented writers at the center of the story. These writers (Hannah, Leslie, and Jimmy) are wildly different from each other, but they form a tight bond during the first residency; this bond is irrevocably changed during the second residency, and two of them take their elaborate revenge in the third. Surprisingly heartfelt, this book is a must-read for fans of the campus novel. "-- Kate Storhoff, Bookmarks, Winston-Salem, NC

9781644450109 Homie 1/21/2020
"Navigating the conflicting but closely connected emotions of joy and grief, celebration and mourning, and love and pain, Danez Smith’s Homie is a lyrical force of reckoning. Through the evocative power of memory, Smith’s collection delves deeply into stories and hurt that we might try to run from in order to transform them into odes—odes of childhood, of loss, of the person from high school that you always wanted to tell you admired for their strength and confidence. Through an intimate understanding of the people that have populated their life, Homie creates a complex but undeniably honest portrait of human connection." -- Morgan McComb, Square Books, Oxford, MS

9781984878618 The Authenticity Project 2/4/2020
"Interwining the stories of five strangers who reach out and help each other after reading and sharing their stories in a common journal, the author deals with issues of truth, falsehood, loneliness, friendship and generosity of spirit. Book clubs, in particular, will find this book rich with opportunities for discussion." -- Lia Lent, WordsWorth Books, Little Rock, AR

The Starless Sea Shine! On  Swift Horses Every Other Weekend 

9780385541213 The Starless Sea 11/5/2019
"As expected, from the author of The Night Circus, simply magical. Words feel inadequate to capture the experience of reading this. An entirely immersive experience. second to none." -- Tricia Nocti, Reading Rock, Dickson, TN

9781524717667 Shine 11/5/2019
""Shine on!" is the catchphrase of Piper's favorite astronomer, but Piper feels like she will never shine, especially when her dad's new job moves her to a fancy private school. Piper's story is full of heart, science, and doesn't shy away from figuring out who you are. This book was made for middle schoolers."-- Chelsea Stringfield, Parnassus Books, Nashville, TN

9780525538110 On Swift Horses 11/5/2019
"In this mesmerizing debut novel, Shannon Pufahl uses a delicate stroke to paint a vast picture of the 1950s American West through the eyes of Muriel and Julius, two loners connected by an unspoken truth that lingers in the air like dust. They are both filled with a fierce tenacity; Muriel's flame is reserved, slow-burning, while Julius' is rambunctious and wide-spreading. But both are fires, manifesting at their own pace... Written with a piercing beauty and subtle grit, Pufahl has achieved a marvelous feat of lyrical prowess that gives an explosive voice to the quiet queerness of an already often-forgotten time in history. This book left me absolutely breathless from beginning to end. " -- Gage Tarlton, Flyleaf Books, Chapel Hill, NC

9781335929099 Every Other Weekend 1/7/2020
"Adam's life has fallen apart. His oldest brother died a few years ago and his parents are still falling apart. His dad has moved away to a run down apartment building that he's rehabbing for free rent. Adam and his other brother come visit him every other weekend, bit Adam isn't happy about it. Until he meets Jolene. She's there in a similar arrangement to visit her dad every other weekend. But she has a host of problems of her own. Every Other Weekend has SO much emotion and heart. The "insults" between Adam and Jolene were absolutely perfect. This one had me alternately in tears and laughing. Absolutely recommend this one. -- Jennifer Jones, Bookmiser, Roswell, GA

The Deep In the Dream House Why We Can't Sleep In a Jar 

9781534439863 The Deep 11/5/2019
"This book's concept is absolutely mind-boggling to me, having never heard of Drexciya or Clipping before now. It's incredible, and I hope this game of "artistic Telephone" does continue - imagine this as a film! The world of the wajinru is fascinating and I would love to learn more about the society they've created for themselves, especially how it functions after the ending of the book.This book is a must for anyone interested in history and trauma and how they affect communities lifetimes later." -- Kaley Lowman, Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC

9781644450031 In the Dream House 11/5/2019
"I have never read a book quite like IN THE DREAM HOUSE: fragmented, yet shatteringly cohesive, experimental, yet utterly confident in its own project. I was mesmerized by the subtly devastating force of Machado’s craft and could barely put the memoir down. (In fact, I will probably re-read it as soon I finish writing this review.) IN THE DREAM HOUSE is both heartbreakingly honest—grounded in Machado’s lived trauma—and breathtaking in its examination of queerness, abuse, and societal memory.Part poetry and part socio-cultural analysis, yet wholly personal, IN THE DREAM HOUSE is one of the bravest literary projects I have encountered, and should be required reading for every one of us."-- Zach Claypole White, Flyleaf Books, Chapel Hill, NC

9780802147851 Why We Can't Sleep 1/7/2020
"I cannot say enough about this book! I want everyone to read it! Gen-X women are having a unique menopausal experience in the history of humanity. As the generation raised to “have it all”, Gen-X women born from about 1965-1980 are dealing with a set of circumstances unlike Boomers and Millennials about whom much more has been studied. The last generation to not “get a trophy” for everything is feeling like a failure at midlife. A lot of women my age and those around them are being profoundly affected by the issues studied by Calhoun: credit card debt, divorce, underemployment, exhaustion, profound anxiety. And we are being told to “lean in”, take “me time”, “tidy up” and a host of other suggestions usually just another way to sell us stuff based on our fears. This easy to read book offers practical suggestions, but more than that: it offers the voices of other women in the same place, dealing with the same issues, providing a much needed source of empowerment for Gen-X women like myself and those who love us. " -- Kelly Justice, Fountain Bookstore, Richmond, VA

9780525514596 In a Jar 1/21/2020
"My little sister was a collector, like Llewellyn. The corners of our shared bedroom were dotted with pinecones, rocks, and our books were filled with pressed leaves and flowers. I love the sweet premise and absolutely gorgeous illustrations of IN A JAR and I know our littlest readers will too. This is the kind of picture book I will want everyone I know to spend a moment with." -- Cristina Russell, Books & Books, Coral Gables, FL

The Bromance Book Club Little Weirds Tomorrow I'll Be Kind Such a Fun Age 

9781984806093 The Bromance Book Club 11/5/2019
"Thea and Gavin are separated. Turns out that Thea had been faking it for pretty much their entire marriage and when Gavin finally realizes it, he leaves. But now he's come to his senses and wants her back, but she's having none of that. Enter: the Bromance Book Club. The club is a group of professionals from Nashville, mostly professional sports players, who read romance novels to better understand their girlfriends or wives. And now they're here to help Gavin. This sweet, funny look at a second chance romance had me flying through the pages. I appreciated that things weren't as one-sided as they first appear and we get growth and character development from more than just one character. I eagerly await the sequel! " -- Jennifer Jones, Bookmiser, Roswell, GA

9780316485340 Little Weirds 11/5/2019
"Little lovely weirds from the big, lovely, weirdness of Jenny Slate's brain. I am recommending that you get both a physical copy to beautify your shelves and the audiobook so that Slate can croon her little weirds into your ears and that way your hands are free for snacking or petting the dog or arranging acorns on your mantle. You will laugh and sigh and wish her words could bring these things to life because she is, after all, a magical person so it should be a thing she can do. And who knows? Maybe she will. "-- Kate Towery, Fountain Bookstore, Richmond, VA

9781524787042 Tomorrow I'll Be Kind 1/14/2020
"I love any picture book that helps children learn how to understand their feelings and be more intentional in their lives. Having a three year old niece and nephew, I struggle to find ways to help them understand their emotions - "be nice" only goes so far. TOMORROW I'LL BE KIND is a beautiful story with plenty to look at and talk about with the kiddos in our lives!" -- Beth Seufer Buss, Bookmarks, Winston-Salem, NC

9780525541905 Such a Fun Age 12/31/2019
"I can't wait to read this one with my book club! I often say that books are either windows or mirrors. Windows allow the reader to see into the lives of others and gain understanding. Mirrors allow the reader to look inside themselves, reflect, and grow. Kiley Reid has created a cast of characters and a plot that provides both the window and the mirror. Reading and discussing this book with a diverse group is sure to spark great conversation and have a positive impact on everyone in the group." -- Angela Redden, Reading Rock Books, Dickson, TN

Nothing to See Here Little Weirds The Revisioners The Broken Road 

9780062913463 Nothing to See Here 10/29/2019
"Absolutely loved this book, I listened to it on Libro.fm. Quirky, entertaining, smart, and funny. I could not put it down. I can not wait to put this book into hands of readers I know will love it as much as I did. Thank you Kevin Wilson for giving the weird and wonderful a voice! And thank you to Marin Ireland for doing an excellent job with the southern accent! " -- Jessica Osborne, E. Shaver, booksellers, Savannah, GA

9780316485340 Little Weirds 11/5/2019
"Little lovely weirds from the big, lovely, weirdness of Jenny Slate's brain. I am recommending that you get both a physical copy to beautify your shelves and the audiobook so that Slate can croon her little weirds into your ears and that way your hands are free for snacking or petting the dog or arranging acorns on your mantle. You will laugh and sigh and wish her words could bring things to life because she is, after all, a magical person so it should be a thing she can do. And who knows? Maybe she will. "-- Kate Towery, Fountain Bookstore, Richmond, VA

9781640092587 The Revisioners 11/5/2019
"Reminiscent of Octavia Butler's KINDRED, Margaret Wilkerson Sexton's new novel is a brilliant story that transcends time. Told over the course of almost 100 years, and several generations of one family, this book confirms that the dark legacy of slavery is something we cannot escape, even in the 21st century. Several times while reading this I had to put it down and step away. It is unflinchingly honest and brutal in a way that is hard to read. There is a suspense building throughout that made me think something terrible was lurking under the surface of both Josephine and Ava's stories. " -- Jamie Southern, Bookmarks, Winston-Salem, NC

9781635573657 The Broken Road 12/3/2019
"The Broken Road is an incredibly honest memoir from the daughter of George Wallace, Peggy Wallace Kennedy. She gives her view of her father's life, political struggles, and personal values. Kennedy also details how she came to a heightened awareness about the hurt her father caused so many with his stand against desegregation. A must-read for those who are interested in Southern history, politics, and the civil rights era." -- Linda Hodges, Fiction Addiction, Greenville, SC

Roll with It Get a Life, Chloe Brown Reputation Blitzed 

9781534442559 Roll with It 10/1/2019
"Ellie's voice makes this book un-put-down-able. She is complex, refreshingly honest, and sassy. She doesn't sugarcoat her experiences in a wheelchair or with cerebral palsy, and she is defined by those experiences either. Every person needs to read this book." -- Chelsea Stringfield, Parnassus Books, Nashville, TN

9780062941206 Get a Life, Chloe Brown 11/5/2019
"Get a Life, Chloe Brown is one of the best romances of the year. The humor and wit are spot on, and the romance will make your heart ache and your cheeks blush. Word of advice: don't read this in public - you'll be completely swept into Chloe Brown and Red's tempting romance and be blind to the world around you. If you're looking for a fun and flirty romance that will make you laugh and tug on your heartstrings, then Get a Life, Chloe Brown is the one for you!"-- Gennifer Eccles, Flyleaf Books, Chapel Hill, NC

9781524742904 Reputation 12/3/2019
"Elite Aldrich University is mired in controversy when a hacker releases the contents of every single person's email who is connected to the university. Many scandals come to light, but after Kit finds her husband Greg, who has a scandal of his own, dead in their kitchen, the action ramps up to an entirely new level.Shepard's books have so many plot twists, the reader is likely to suffer literary whiplash...and enjoy every minute of it. You'll suspect everyone in Reputation. And you just might be right." -- Jennifer Jones, The Bookmiser, Roswell, GA

9780451491992 Blitzed 12/3/2019
"This was another cute romantic comedy by Alexa Martin! I loved the inter-racial relationship and the world that Alexa Martin has created in this series. I also couldn't stop laughing at the way Brynn and her friends, the wives and girlfriends of the Denver Mustangs, interacted with one another. Not only was this an entertaining romance, it also was a great book of female empowerment of a woman owning her own business and also have strong supportive friends in her circle. Alexa Martin continues to write books that keeps me hooked! " -- Deanna Bailey, Story on the Square, McDonough, GA

Imaginary Friend The Beautiful The Gallows Pole Nothing to See Here 

9781538731338 Imaginary Friend 10/1/2019
"Immediately compelling, Imaginary Friend has the grip of those timeless cautionary tales, but related through a child's genuine sense of wonder and apprehension. Real-deal darkness, just peaking around the edges of the rich prose and Mayberry-esque setting.." -- Jilleen Moore, Square Books, Oxford, MS

9781524738174 The Beautiful 10/8/2019
"Ahdieh sets her gritty underworld in the perfect environment of New Orleans in the late 19th century. It's dark and dramatic and filled with intense passion. Ahdieh drew me in and left me so frustrated. I need the next book. NOW. This is the YA fantasy you need in your life right now."-- Miriam Meeks, E Shaver, bookseller, Savannah, GA

9780997457858 The Gallows Pole 10/15/2019
"A grimy, visceral historical crime novel with prose that feel like they were written with a sledge hammer. Entertaining, yes, but with plenty to say about power and class." -- Justin Souther, Malaprop's Bookstore/Cafe, Asheville, NC

9780062913463 Nothing to See Here 10/29/2019
"I don't think I've read something so absurd and equally endearing ever before in my life. Kevin Wilson serves us a tale spun around heartbreak, what it means to be family, and honest to God unconditional love. When Lillian's childhood friend, Madison, calls her with a job to be the governess to her step-children, the deal sounds too good to be true. But once Lillian meets Bessie and Roland, she learns exactly what her job is: keep the kids from catching on fire, at (quite literally) all costs. The sweetness of this story is fragrant with smoke and sweet tea, and Wilson leaves the reader feeling completely satisfied and fulfilled by the entirety of Lillian's story involving this twisted and fantastical family." -- Delany Holcomb, Bookmarks, Winston-Salem, NC

The World We Knew I Can Make This Purpoe The BeautifulGumbo Murder he Sacrament 

9781501137570 The World That We Knew 9/24/2019
"An achingly gorgeous piece of work. Alice Hoffman takes the tired genre of WWII historical fiction and enlivens it with mysticism and spirituality. I wept, but more from the beauty of it all than from the gut-wrenching sadness." -- Lucy Stoltzfus, The Bookshelf, Thomasville, GA

9780062871992 I Can Make This Promise 10/1/2019
"This book has everything adult books have, only made chewable for middle graders. I loved it. The main character develops in the normal, healthy way a middle schooler would, as she gets to know more about her family and elders, loses a friend, grows her talent, and gets braces. The trust she has with her parents is shaken, but their relationship remains respectful, so that young readers are taught how to navigate growing up in a way that honors their parents. The brilliance of this book, though, is the mysterious family history that Edith uncovers, a topic that I knew nothing about. I learned so much reading this, and I think any kid would enjoy learning more about the Native American history in America, too. Overall, my new standard for middle grade literature. "-- Maria Sivils, M. Judson, booksellers and storytellers, Greenville, SC

9781524738174 The Beautiful 10/8/2019
"I’m left with so many questions, but mostly when can I get my hands on the next book? Yes, vampires have been done before and yes, vampires in New Orleans have been done before. This book managed to not feel tired though. Renee’s characters are well-written and the story is lush. " -- Melissa Taylor, E. Shaver, booksellers, Savannah, GA

9780062899873 The Sacrament 12/3/2019
"A thoughtful, atmospheric, and quietly intense novel about how choices have effects that must be felt our whole lives and how we grapple with them. I loved settling in with this novel." -- Catherine Bock, Parnassus Books, Nashvillel, TN
