Envy: a Luxe Novel by Anna Godbersen

Envy: a Luxe Novel- by Anna Godbersen

The Luxe series follows the lives and trials of a group of debutantes in New York City in the late 1890’s and early 1900’s. These young ladies constantly fight to uphold and further the family name while attempting to hide their personal indiscretions. This third book in the series shows just how far society families will push their heirs in order to maintain a proper reputation in a time when a family name and honor were considered more important than happiness or love.

Dewey by Viki Myron

Dewey
by Viki Myron

I found this book a book that I could read with my son who is 11. We sat up at night reading it. This book is one of hope, of small town pride, and of course, Dewey. Anyone that has had a cat will love this book. For those people who have not had a cat you will be made aware that cats are fabulous and are only allowing us on this earth, for they are truly the kings and queens. You will laugh, giggle, cry, and tell everyone to read this book. –Review by Julie

Refresh Refresh by Benjamin Percy

Refresh Refresh
by Benjamin Percy

Touted by the likes of Ann Patchett and Peter Straub as being the foundational work of a young and talented writer, Refresh Refresh is a collection of stories, mostly set in the Pacific Northwest, that employ cross-genre techniques to create a combination of gut-wrenching realism and fantastic elements that dazzle. Each ending is an unforced surprise to the reader. Spanning realms and realities, from post-nuclear Oregon populated by vigilante gangs of Harley-riding tough guys , to forests in Bend inhabited by blood-thirsty “monsters,” this collection contains depth and entertainment in equal doses. Benjamin Percy is well on his way to being one of America’s preeminent tale –tellers in any genre. –Review by Philip

Flotsametrics and the Floating World by Curtis Ebbesmeyer

Flotsametrics and the Floating World
by Curtis Ebbesmeyer

On May 27, 1990 a cargo ship encountered a storm that spilled (among other things) 61,820 Nike sneakers in to the North Pacific Ocean. In “Flotsametrics and the Floating World” Curtis Ebbesmeyer wonders where did they all go? His research leads him to find all kinds of floating objects from shoes to refrigerators, TV sets, to abandoned yachts, human remains, plastic toys, and yes, messages in bottles! He uncovers the large sections of the ocean known as garbage patches where untold numbers of objects gather to swirl about in a never ending cycle of currents. The ocean is a big place. Read this book and you’ll be amazed at what is floating out there. Even valuable treasure if you are sport enough to go get it.

Oh, and by the way, I tossed a message-in-a-bottle into the ocean when I was in my teens. I was thrilled when I actually got a reply! Ask me about it. –Ben

Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand by Helen Simonson

Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand
By Helen Simonson


The proper and rigid Major Pettigrew has lost his beloved brother, Bertier, at the opening of this lovely story of the 68 year old widower and the dignified Mrs. Ali. He has been vaguely aware of her as the “Indian or Pakistani woman” (though she’s never been out of England) who has been blending his special tea at a local convenience store for some time. She calls on him as he is grieving his loss and their relationship begins. As they become friends, they find much more that they have in common than would keep them from being friends. The relationship grows through this poignant and outright funny story. There are characters throughout the tale that will keep you laughing out loud and loving these people. I highly recommend this great read for restoring your faith in people and in happy endings. -Review by Dianne
