As the weather gets cooler (or at least I hope so here in GA) here are two new books that we are excited to cozy up with.
The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes
Release Date: October 8
From the author of the hugely popular Me Before You trilogy, this novel has already been optioned for a major motion picture deal. Based on true events surrounding Eleanor Roosevelt’s traveling library, the story follows five women as they journey across the mountains of Tennessee delivering books to people who have never had any. What happens to these women and the men that they love is a classic drama of justice, loyalty and passion. While sharing the gift of learning with some unforgettable characters, these women face many dangers and find themselves changed in a way they had never imagined. Goodreads rating: 4.3 stars

This is a dark and intricately twisted mystery by the bestselling author of Then She was Gone, Finally, Libby Jones has learned the identity of her birth parents and also that she is the sole inheritor of an abandoned mansion on the banks of the Thames in London.
