Books to recommend to anyone!

So says Kirkus and so says me!

"All the books on this week’s list leave you feeling like you’ve been part of a complex, intriguing, memorable world, one that entirely envelops you and leaves you wanting more. There isn’t any more, though, at least not yet: No sequels to these books exist. The next best thing, though, is talking about the book with a friend. So check out this week’s books and recommend them to someone else!" - Kirkus 

Here they are and we have them all!
