Young Adult

I woke up in the middle of the night a week ago thinking…. gosh if “Beauty and the Beast” and Hunger Games had a love child, it would be A Court of Thorns and Roses. After mistakenly killing a faerie, Feyre is given the choice of death, or living with Tamlin, a lethal and cursed faerie Lord. Taken to a dark and mysterious country, Feyre must learn to navigate through faerie politics and defeat dangerous creatures. Feyre soon discovers not all is at it appears and she is slowly drawn to Tamlin. As a mere human in a land ruled by magic, Feyre must use her expertise with a bow and clever killer instincts to keep herself and Tamlin alive. A Court of Thorns and Roses is an imaginative, action-packed and sexy fairy tale retelling; you are sure to enjoy each and every page. – Ashley

Curated Fiction

With Lutz’s trademark humor, quippy dialogue, and quirky characters, she introduces readers to three college friends who met in Santa Cruz where they all began attending college in 1993. Anna is a take-charge, wild, adventurous soul raised in an affluent family in Boston. Her desire to escape her background, her family, and her emotions at every opportunity, even as a child, continues to define her as an adult. Kate was raised by her grandfather after both of her parents died when she was eight years old. She was raised in Santa Cruz and never wanted to leave, her only ambition to manage her grandfather’s restaurant. Life has other plans for her. George is a tall, beautiful basketball player who hails from the midwest and had a less catastrophic upbringing than the other two, but who has a penchant for men who are bad for her. Told from multiple viewpoints, points in time, and locations, the story leads readers to learn about all three girls from college to graduate school … through failed marriages, career decisions, and life cycles … and about the men that revolve around their worlds. Fans of Lutz will fall in love all over again. Readers who are new to her will race to their bookstores to begin reading about the Spellmans. – Terry
