New Books:

Adult Fiction: This Might Hurt by Stephanie Wrobel. Named a “most anticipated book of 2022” by Newsweek, this thrilling new novel is set in the fictional Wisewood on a private island off the coast of Maine. Natalie’s sister Kit disappeared in this off-the-grid setting about six months ago, and now Natalie has received a threatening email from a Wisewood account. When she goes to bring her sister home, they both find that leaving is easier said than done.

Adult Non-Fiction: Aftermath: Life in the Fallout of the Third Reich, 1945-1955 by Harald Jahner. This new revealing history contains over 40 black and white photos from the period, and chronicles a decade that found many Germans politically, economically, and morally bankrupt. It is a German bestseller and is also the first history of Germany’s national mentality in the immediate postwar years.

Young Adult: House of Sky and Breath by Sarah J. Maas. This highly anticipated novel is the sequel to New York Times bestseller Crescent City. Bryce and Hunt are attempting to slow down and get back to normal following the events of the first novel. But the threat of the Asteri is growing, and the protagonists quickly find themselves roped into the rebel’s plans against them.

Childrens: Norse Mythology for Kids: Tales of Gods, Creatures, and Quests by Mathias Nordvig. Recommended for ages 8 – 12 but still enjoyable by interested younger children, this new nonfiction collection features 20 marvelous Norse myths, charts of family ties in the mythology, and a glossary with definitions and pronunciations to help kids navigate their new or continuing knowledge.
