We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending May 25, 2014–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.
(Debuted at #3 in Hardcover Fiction) The One & Only by Emily Griffin: “Thirty-three-year-old Shea Rigsby has spent her entire life in Walker, Texas—a small college town that lives and dies by football, a passion she unabashedly shares. Raised alongside her best friend, Lucy, the daughter of Walker’s legendary head coach, Clive Carr, Shea was too devoted to her hometown team to leave. Instead she stayed in Walker for college, even taking a job in the university athletic department after graduation, where she has remained for more than a decade. But when an unexpected tragedy strikes the tight-knit Walker community, Shea’s comfortable world is upended, and she begins to wonder if the life she’s chosen is really enough for her.” (May 2014)
(Debuted at #9 in Children’s Illustrated) I Love My Daddy written by Giles Andreae & illustrated by Emma Dodd: “I love my daddy, yes I do He’s very kind – and funny too. Award-winning author/illustrator team Giles Andreae and Emma Dodd celebrate the bond between father and child in this joyful rhyming text. Portrayed with humour and charm, this is a book to be loved and shared time and again.” (April 2012)
