We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending June 01, 2014–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.
(Debuted at #3 in Children’s Fiction Series) The Mortal Instruments: City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare: “Darkness has descended on the Shadowhunter world. Chaos and destruction overwhelm the Nephilim as Clary, Jace, Simon, and their friends band together to fight the greatest evil they have ever faced: Clary’s own brother.” (May 2014)
(Debuted at #3 in Hardcover Fiction) Skin Game by Jim Butcher: “Mab has just traded Harry’s skills to pay off one of her debts. And now he must help a group of supernatural villains—led by one of Harry’s most dreaded and despised enemies, Nicodemus Archleone—to break into the highest-security vault in town, so that they can then access the highest-security vault in the Nevernever.” (May 2014)
(Debuted at #4 in Hardcover Nonfiction) Tibetan Peach Pie by Tom Robbins: “The grandchild of Baptist preachers, Robbins would become over the course of half a century a poet-interruptus, an air force weatherman, a radio dj, an art-critic-turned-psychedelic-journeyman, a world-famous novelist, and a counter-culture hero, leading a life as unlikely, magical, and bizarre as those of his quixotic characters. Robbins offers intimate snapshots of Appalachia during the Great Depression, the West Coast during the Sixties psychedelic revolution, international roving before homeland security monitored our travels, and New York publishing when it still relied on trees.” (May 2014)
