Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow - Gabrielle Zevin

Coming-of-Age Fiction 

From Goodreads: In this exhilarating novel, two friends--often in love, but never lovers--come together as creative partners in the world of video game design, where success brings them fame, joy, tragedy, duplicity, and, ultimately, a kind of immortality.

It Happened One Summer - Tessa Bailey

Romantic Fiction

From Goodreads: Tessa Bailey is back with a Schitt’s Creek-inspired rom-com about a Hollywood “It Girl” who is cut off from her wealthy family and exiled to a small Pacific Northwest beach town... where she butts heads with a surly, sexy local who thinks she doesn’t belong.

The Wishing Game - Meg Shaffer

Contemporary Romantic Fiction

From Goodreads: Years ago, a reclusive mega-bestselling children’s author quit writing under mysterious circumstances. Suddenly he resurfaces with a brand-new book and a one-of-a-kind competition, offering a prize that will change the winner’s life in this absorbing and whimsical novel.

The Midnight Library - Matt Haig

Science Fiction

From Goodreads: Between life and death there is a library, and within that library, the shelves go on forever. Every book provides a chance to try another life you could have lived. To see how things would be if you had made other choices . . . Would you have done anything different, if you had the chance to undo your regrets? A novel about all the choices that go into a life well lived.

The Two Lives of Lydia Bird - Josie Silver

Romantic Fiction

From Goodreads: Written with Josie Silver's trademark warmth and wit, The Two Lives of Lydia Bird is a powerful and thrilling love story about the what-ifs that arise at life's crossroads, and what happens when one woman is given a miraculous chance to answer them.

You have all summer to read -- remember, you're working as a team, so split them up in a way that works best for you! Do your best to read them all and remember as many details as you can. 

On October 7, join us at the bookstore* for an evening of drinks, snacks and a good old-fashioned book quiz! We'll do a few rounds of questions based on all of the books to see who studied the hardest over the summer.   Prizes for the winner to be announced. 

*We plan to be outside, but in case of inclement weather, we'll use an indoor location as a back up!
