General & Historical Fiction
Beach Town Beach Town by Mary Kay Andrews
Movie location scout Greer has been given one more chance, if she can find the perfect undiscovered beach hideaway for a big-budget movie. She zeroes in on a sleepy Florida panhandle town called Cypress Key. There's just one problem. Town mayor Eben completely objects to Greer's plan. But Greer has a way of making things happen, regardless of obstacles. And Greer and Eb are way too attracted to each other for either of them to see reason. Now Greer is forced to make some hard choices: about the people and the town she's come to care about, and about her own life.

Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke
In the year 1806, with the Napoleonic Wars raging on land and sea, most people believe magic to be long dead in England -- until the reclusive Mr. Norrell reveals his powers, and becomes a celebrity overnight. Yet the cautious, fussy Norrell is challenged by the emergence of the brilliant novice Jonathan Strange. Young, handsome, and daring, Strange is the very opposite of Norrell. He becomes Norrell's student, and they join forces in the war against France. But Strange is increasingly drawn to the wildest, most perilous forms of magic, straining his partnership with Norrell, and putting at risk everything else he holds dear.

Openly Straight Anything Could Happen by Will Walton
Tretch has just realized that he's in love with his best friend. This is a problem because Tretch is gay, and his best friend Matt isn't. And Matt has no idea. In fact, no one knows, and Tretch is scared to tell the people who care about him because he doesn't want to make their lives harder. But Anything Could Happen is more than a coming out story. It's a coming of age story that shows just how much of a difference love of any kind can make.
