New Releases: June 30th, 2015

This list is hardly comprehensive; it's just a couple of titles that caught my eye as I was scrolling down the list of new releases. The blockbuster titles always seem to come out towards the beginning of a month.

NEW RELEASES IN HARDCOVER



THE ENGLISH SPY by Daniel Silva
She is an iconic member of the British Royal Family, beloved for her beauty and charitable works, resented by her former husband and his mother, the Queen of England. But when a bomb explodes aboard her holiday yacht, British intelligence turns to one man to track down her killer: legendary spy and assassin Gabriel Allon. Gabriel's target is Eamon Quinn, a master bomb maker and mercenary of death who sells his services to the highest bidder. Thriller /  Adventure

THE MOUNTAIN STORY by Lori Lansens
Nola has gone up the mountain to commemorate her wedding anniversary, the first since her beloved husband passed. Bridget is training for a triathalon. Vonn is working out her teenage rebellion at 8,000 feet. Still reeling from the tragic accident that robbed him of his best friend, Wolf Truly plans to take his own life. When a series of missteps strands this unusual group together in the wilderness, they soon realize that their only defense against the brutality of nature is one another. Fiction

THE OREGON TRAIL: A New American Journey by Rinker Buck
An epic account of traveling the length of the Oregon Trail the old-fashioned way—in a covered wagon with a team of mules, an audacious journey that hasn’t been attempted in a century—which also chronicles the rich history of the trail, the people who made the migration, and its significance to the country. Rinker Buck is no stranger to grand adventures. His first travel narrative, FLIGHT OF PASSAGE, was hailed by The New Yorker as “a funny, cocky gem of a book,” and with THE OREGON TRAIL he brings the most important route in American history back to glorious and vibrant life. Travel / History

THE PHANTOM BULLY (Jedi Academy #3) by Jeffrey Brown
It's hard to believe this is Roan's last year at Jedi Academy. He's been busier than ever learning to fly (and wash) starships, swimming in the Lake Country on Naboo, studying for the Jedi obstacle course exam, and tracking down dozens of vorpak clones--don't ask. But now, someone is setting him up to get in trouble with everyone at school, including Yoda. If he doesn't find out who it is, and fast, he may get kicked out of school! Why can't middle school just be easy. . . Children's

WINTER TURNING (Wings of Fire #7) by Tui T. Sutherland
The war is over. The false prophecy has been fulfilled. But the dragonets still have enemies. A dark evil, buried for centuries, is stirring. And a young NightWing may have had the first true prophecy in generations...
Something is coming to shake the earth
Something is coming to scorch the ground
Jade Mountain will fall beneath thunder and ice
Unless the lost city of night can be found. Children's

NEW IN PAPERBACK


THE BOOK OF STRANGE NEW THINGS by Michel Faber
Michel Faber’s latest novel is about the search for comfort in the face of life’s tragedies. Peter Leigh is a Christian missionary recruited by an organization known as USIC to be the pastor on a distant planet called Oasis. He leaves behind his wife to work with both the USIC employees stationed on Oasis and the planet’s natives.

HOW TO TELL TOLEDO FROM THE NIGHT SKY by Lydia Netzer
At the Toledo Institute of Astronomy, cosmologist George Dermont and scientist Irene Sparks are on a collision course with love, destiny and fate. The air seems to hum when they’re together, but their attraction was not written in the stars. Their mothers raised them to become soulmates. When that secret plan triggers unintended consequences, George and Irene must discover the truth about their destinies and find what Toledo holds for them --- together or apart. Romance

US by David Nicholls
Douglas and Connie live more or less happily in the suburbs of London with their moody 17-year-old son, Albie. Then Connie tells Douglas she thinks she wants a divorce. Hoping to encourage her son’s artistic interests, Connie had planned a month-long tour of European capitals, a chance to experience the world’s greatest works of art as a family.
