There are currently 31 holds on one copy of The Cuckoo’s Calling by, ahem, Robert Galbraith. We have other paper copies on the way too. But if you are at all like me… You. Simply. Can’t. Wait. We get that. So The Cuckoo’s Calling is among the 10 new titles available to be read when you borrow our Kobo, Kindle or Sony e-readers. The others are pretty exciting too. Take a look:
The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare
Artistic teen Clary Fray’s life is turned upside down when she discovers the existence of the Shadowhunters – a race of demonhunters – in modern day New York City. This is my favourite teen series with adult appeal AND it’s due out in theatres at the end of August.
Orange is the New Black by Piper Kerman
Critics are enthused about the new Netflix show, but is the real Piper’s life anywhere as dramatic as her fictional counterpart? Only one way to find out…
A Tale for a Time Being* by Ruth Ozeki
The Booker’s Dozen was announced earlier this week and Ozeki is one of three Canadians up for the prestigious Man Booker prize thanks to this novel about the connected between a bullied Japanese teenager and a blocked novelist.
The Silver Star* by Jeannette Walls
Made famous by The Glass Castle, a memoir of her unconventional childhood, Walls turns to fiction with The Silver Star. Two sisters are casually abandoned by their mother. They travel cross country to the town where their mother was raised to be taken in by their eccentric uncle. Recommended for book clubs.
100 Year-old-man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson
A centenarian with a long a colourful life behind him escapes from his 100th birthday party.
Other new additions to our ereaders include David Sedaris’ latest, Lets Explore Diabetes with Owls, John Green’s NYT bestseller, The Fault in Our Stars, Neil Gaiman’s latest (and one of my Summer Picks) The Ocean at the End of the Lane and Khaled Hosseini’s And The Mountains Echoed.
