Lady Banks Pick of the Week


Read This Now: The Index

What if there were an army of indie booksellers enthusiastically reading and reviewing practically every new book coming out in the next year, and what if the books they were the most excited about, the books they couldn't wait to push into their customers' hands with a breathless "You've GOT to read this!" (virtually or otherwise), the ones with all the nine- and ten-star ratings were carefully curated and collected in a handy list? Well, all we can say is...KEEP READING!

Browse the whole list!


Ghosted by Rosie WalshI can't remember the last time I actually said out loud, "Well, I didn't see THAT coming!" while reading a book.

Sarah meets Eddie while on a short holiday home. After six incredible days together, Sarah knows that she has found "the one." They part knowing that they will be together again in a few short weeks. Unfortunately, a few short weeks come and go and Sarah has yet to hear from Eddie. Sarah's friends tell her that she's been ghosted and needs to move on. Sarah knows that something is terribly wrong and is determined to find out why Eddie vanished.

Little does she realize that her past has caught up with her in a way that she never thought possible.

Ghosted by Rosie Walsh ($26.00*, Pamela Dorman Books), recommended by Bookmiser, Roswell, GA.
