May book of the month: It's a tie!
This month we couldn’t settle on just one book of the month, so we had to feature two. The Violets of March by Sarah Jio and Attachments by Rainbow Rowell are two fabulous reads new in May. Whether you want a fun, quirky story of love in the office or something a little more mysterious, these page-turners will both add color to your spring reading.
The Violets of March by Sarah Jio
If you've ever fallen from the top and found yourself looking for answers, this debut novel will speak to you. Part mystery, part love story mixed with history, this book is heart-felt and stunning.
Emily Wilson couldn't go wrong; she had a bestselling novel and a gorgeous husband and seemed to be well on her way to a storybook ending.
Ten years later, however, Emily's good luck seems to have run out. With few other options, she decides to spend March with her great-aunt Bee on Bainbridge Island in Washington State. Seeking inspiration for her next novel and solitude from her broken life, Emily stumbles upon a red velvet diary, dated 1943.
When the contents of the diary start to seem strikingly similar to her own life, Emily discovers more than she ever imagined.

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
Who screens the emails at your company? Do you ever send anything juicy enough to make that person fall for you?
Beth and Jennifer know their company monitors their emails, but like many, they don't take it seriously. Jennifer tells Beth everything she can't seem to tell her husband. And Beth tells Jennifer everything, period.
Lincoln hates that his job is to monitor their emails, but he's captivated by Beth and Jennifer's stories. In fact, he's falling for Beth.
But how can he ever tell her:
"Hi, I'm the guy who reads your email, and also, I love you…"
This book will have you LOL-ing non-stop. The idea of love being discovered through this technology is witty and fresh and will keep you flipping the pages until you're finished.
