June LibraryReads Selections

May 14, 2015

Sorry I’ve been a bit slow with these lately but the list does seem to be a demand generator so it’s worth consulting. The full list with all publisher annotations is here.  Note this month’s list has an interesting non-fiction selection, Pirate Hunters by Robert Kurson.  Note: 3M titles are all on pre-order but don’t show in the catalog until their street date, which is still a difference from OverDrive.  The eAudio I can collect should also be in the catalog shortly as well.


The Favorite – Eight Hundred Grapes by Laura Dave

Eight hundred grapes : a novel

A breakout novel from an author who “positively shines with wisdom and intelligence” (Jonathan Tropper, This Is Where I leave You ). “Laura Dave writes with humor and insight about relationships in all their complexity, whether she’s describing siblings or fiancés or a couple long-married. Eight Hundred Grapes is a captivating story about the power of family, the limitations of love, and what becomes of a life’s work” (J. Courtney Sullivan, Maine ). There are secrets you share, and secrets you hide… Growing up on her family’s Sonoma vineyard, Georgia Ford learned some important secrets. The secret number of grapes it takes to make a bottle of wine: eight hundred. The secret ingredient in her mother’s lasagna: chocolate. The secret behind ending a fight: hold hands. But just a week before her wedding, thirty-year-old Georgia discovers her beloved fiancé has been keeping a secret so explosive, it will change their lives forever. Georgia does what she’s always done: she returns to the family vineyard, expecting the comfort of her long-married parents, and her brothers, and everything familiar. But it turns out her fiancé is not the only one who’s been keeping secrets… Bestselling author Laura Dave has been dubbed “a wry observer of modern love” ( USA TODAY ), a “decadent storyteller” ( Marie Claire ), and “compulsively readable” ( Woman’s Day ). Set in the lush backdrop of Sonoma’s wine country, Eight Hundred Grapes is a heartbreaking, funny, and deeply evocative novel about love, marriage, family, wine, and the treacherous terrain in which they all intersect.
