Top ten books recently published that librarians love.
To see the full list go toTop ten Library Reads September 2014

On shelf in Lucan public library
Season of Storms
by Susanna Kearsley

(Sourcebooks Landmark)
“Once again, Kearsley introduces you to a cast of characters who will quickly hold a special place in your heart. Celia and Alex mirror lovers from decades past, sharing similar secrets and passions. Flashbacks are woven seamlessly into the storyline, and the strong family component is handled beautifully, with surprising twists and turns.”
Marianne Colton, Lockport Public Library, Lockport, NY 
On shelf in Dublin City Libraries
The Distance: A Thriller  
by Helen Giltrow

(Doubleday)

“Imagine a modern-day Robin Hood who deals not in money, but identity. Karla, the protagonist of The Distance, is a tech guru with a conscience, and the security of several nations’ dependent on her. This nuanced book kept me on the edge of my seat. I cannot wait until the next one comes out.”
Cathy Scheib, Indianapolis Public Library, Indianapolis, IN
Smoke Gets in Your Eyes: 
And Other Lessons from the Crematoryby Caitlin Doughty (W. W. Norton & Company)
“Part memoir, part exposé of the death industry, and part instruction manual for aspiring morticians. First-time author Doughty has written an attention-grabbing book that is sure to start some provocative discussions. Fans of Mary Roach’s Stiff and anyone who enjoys an honest, well-written autobiography will appreciate this quirky story.”
Patty Falconer, Hampstead Public Library, Hampstead, NH
