WORD OF THE WEEK Roseate: Pink in color, like a rose; often used to describe a sunrise. Can also be used to describe an overly-optimistic outlook on life.

JUST ARRIVED This week we have new mysteries and thrillers from Meg Gardiner, William Shaw, and James Patterson. Tad Williams, Seanan McGuire, and Catherynne M. Valente provide new works of fantasy, while the latest from Danielle Steel, Diana Gabaldon, and T. C. Boyle are also on our shelves. Get out into the wild with Best Easy Day Hikes: Adirondacks, Five Star Trails: Adirondacks and The Adirondacks: Season by Season. Bring your sketchbook with you and take inspiration from Drawing Trees and Leaves. In young adult novels, we have two new works dealing with the consequences of internet celebrity. In Tash Hearts Tolstoy, the title character tries to handle unexpected fame after the popularity of her Anna-Karenina-based webseries takes off. The Unlikelies follows a group of teens who, inspired by a single spontaneous act, make a pact to continue doing good deeds anonymously but eventually find themselves out of their depth. Similarly, the main character in The Leaf Reader starts out telling fortunes for fun, but winds up tangled in something darker.
