Keebe Fitch, owner of McIntyre’s Books, recommends these two feminist retellings of Greek myths for fans of Madeline Miller’s “Circe,” both great page-turners:

  • “Ariadne” by Jennifer Saint
  • Pat Barker’s Trojan trilogy, “The Women of Troy”(available Aug. 24)

Read Chatham-based authors who Mary Mills, a Chatham Community Library assistant, recommends:

  • “The Hollow Places” by T. Kingfisher(otherwise known as Ursula Vernon)
  • “Reenu-You” by Michele Tracy Berger
  • Accidental Birds of the Carolinas”by Marjorie Hudson

Pete Mock, a book buyer at McIntyre’s Books, offers these reviews about his picks:
“Razorblade Tears” by S.A. Cosby
“S.A. Cosby is the real deal. He is rejuvenating the mystery scene in a way not seen since Elmore Leonard during his prime. And his new novel is the perfect example. This story of two ex-cons, fathers, seeking answers to the murders of their married sons has it all. Fast-paced and relentless, it is an excellent look at our culture wars through the eyes of a parent who can’t understand his child’s choices. Super smart, incredibly entertaining and all-around satisfying, this is a book no one should skip!”

“Appleseed” by Matt Bell
“Stunning! The most imaginative novel I’ve read in years. A dystopian retelling of the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice with a timeline that runs from 1705 to 1,000 years into the future and details the end of the Arcadian ideal and the demise of all life on Earth before its eventual rebirth, because nothing ever truly dies.”
