We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending June 22, 2014–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.
(Debuted at #1 in Hardcover Fiction) Silkworm by Robert Galbraith (a.k.a. J.K. Rowling): “When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days–as he has done before–and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine’s disappearance than his wife realizes.” (June 2014)
(Debuted at #7 in Hardcover Fiction) All Fall Down by Jennifer Weiner: “Allison Weiss got her happy ending—a handsome husband, adorable daughter, a job she loves, and the big house in the suburbs. But while waiting in the pediatrician’s office, she opens a magazine to a quiz about addiction and starts to wonder…Is a Percocet at the end of the day really different from a glass of wine? Is it such a bad thing to pop a Vicodin after a brutal Jump & Pump class…or if your husband ignores you?” (June 2014)
(Debuted at #15 in Children’s Interest) The Glass Sentence by S.E. Grove: “Boston, 1891. Sophia Tims comes from a family of explorers and cartologers who, for generations, have been traveling and mapping the New World—a world changed by the Great Disruption of 1799, when all the continents were flung into different time periods. Eight years ago, her parents left her with her uncle Shadrack, the foremost cartologer in Boston, and went on an urgent mission. They never returned.” (June 2014)
