Carry On

This book is not NEW new, but it is new to us here at The Public Library of New London. It’s fresh out of the box and freshly covered… Carry On, by Rainbow Rowell (who you might recognize because she wrote Eleanor & Park and Fangirl),  “has as much kissing and talking as you’d expect from a Rainbow Rowell story- but far, far more monsters.”

Kill The Boy Band

As a reader and an artist, I need my book covers to look catchy. This one is all in the neon title: Kill The Boy Band. It looks great, and according to the author it is only “partially auto-biographical....” The book jacket describes it as a pitch-black, hilarious take on fandom and the badass girls who have the power to make – or break – the people we call “celebrities.”

Library of Souls

The third novel of Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, called Library of Souls, is here and is no less enthralling than its predecessors.

The use of amazing & never before published vintage photographs continue to highlight the equally peculiar imagination of author Ransom Riggs. This fateful final (!) book doesn’t disappoint!
