Spring is finally coming and along with sunshine and much more agreeable temperatures comes fresh new books our staff want to share with you. Our PDF icon Featured Titles - Early Spring 2018 list has something to captivate every reader.

Our fiction picks include Laura Lippman's latest, Sunburn, which takes inspiration from ‘40s noir, as well as a novel on the early days of Hollywood by Melanie Benjamin. Big Little Lies fans will definitely want to borrow "Mrs." by Caitlin Macy. There's also the gritty Only Killers and Thieves, focusing on two teenagers seeking revenge for the murder of their parents and younger sister in 1870’s Australia. 

Our non-fiction choices are exactly the thing to delight a reader who wants to read their way through to early summer. Our selections include Educated, a memoir by a woman who graduated with a PhD from Cambridge but didn’t attend school until she was 17, and John Leland's Happiness is a Choice You Make. Leland spent a year profiling people who had passed their eighty-fifth birthday and found them so captivating he couldn’t stop writing about them.

As always, our staff continue to share their picks and pans at More Books Please, our ever popular blog. Happy reading!
