New Books You Might Have Missed - Fiction

With so many great books being added to the Library's collection every day, it's not hard to imagine you might miss a few. Here's the latest peek at a few that have come across my desk in the last few weeks which caught my eye.

Confessions of a Beauty Addict by Nadine Haobsh - nothing is better to shake up those winter blahs that a dash of beauty and glamour chick lit style. Fired from her job as a columnist for a hip magazine, Bella Hunter is forced to take a position at dowdy competitor. Fun, frivolity from the author of the “Jolie in NYC” blog.

In the Convent of Little Flowers by Indu Sundaresan - bestselling author (of The Splendor of Silence and others) brings 9 stories of life in modern India. Lush description, intriguing characters and insight into the beauty and contradictions of India in the 21st century.

Noise: fiction inspired by Sonic Youth, edited by Peter Wild - 21 writers pen stories inspired by the music of Sonic Youth who embraced noise and dissonance and became one of America’s most influential rock bands.

Water Dogs by Lewis Robinson - 1st novel of suspense. Set in Maine: a man disappears during a snowstorm and the brother of Bennie - the story’s down-on-his-luck protagonist - becomes the main suspect in the disappearance. Bennie’s investigations uncover questions that go well beyond the crime at hand
