New titles to add to your reading list this summer

Library swag available for avid readers
Need new reads for your summer reading? Running out of planned titles to read now that you’re a month into summer?

New books are always coming out, but getting the inspiration to pick out titles to spend time on can be difficult. Fortunately, we're always searching for and reading new releases.

this week's recommendations

The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay is the featured title of the week. This indie novel combines the home invasion and apocalyptic thriller genres in a way that has brought acclamations from horror fans and professional reviewers.

Other highlights include The Word Is Murder by Anthony Horowitz and I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara. Horowitz’ book is a troperiffic adventure through mystery genre conventions led by the author — who is also the main character. On a darker note, McNamara’s true crime book is a look into the author’s journalistic investigations on the Golden State Killer while the gruesome cases were still unsolved.

All of these books are available through the Library — but they are all wildly popular, so be sure to place it on hold ASAP.
