Kiera's Picks:

Dirt by David Mann This psychological thriller is set on a nut farm- both literally and figuratively. Galen, a 23-year-old who has never spent a day away from his mother, Susie Q, longs to align his chakras and experience deep meditations. Unfortunately, his money-hoarding mom, deeply bitter aunt, sexually depraved cousin and poor dementia-ridden grandmother are all standing in his way to spritual fulfillment. When his mother threatens to send him to prison, Galen's last few screws come loose as he comtemplates how far he is willing to go to save himself. This page-turner will lead you into a sometimes comic, sometimes cruel, but altogether unsettling glimpse into a family gone to dirt. 

Breed by Chase Novak  A wealthy upper eastside couple, sick of failed infertility treatments, ventures to a shady doctor in eastern Europe for a miracle. And it works- they're having twins! But there is a dark, and rather gruesome, price to be paid for their new bundles of joy. This guilty pleasure read is a fun, sick, and twisted!

Timecrimes In this Spanish-language sci-fi horror film, a man accidentally finds himself in a murder mystery and a bit of a time travel conumdrum. Scary, fast-paced, and thought-provoking.

Back to Blood by Tom Wolfe  Tome Wolfe's latest novel arrived on Main Street yesterday and what has been said about this book is the author does for Miami what he did for New York in Bonfire of the Vanities. He has created a cast of exoctic characters and a plot that will keep you thoroughly entertained!

No Easy Day by Mark Owen  The author gives us a first person account about the planning and execution of Osama Bin Laden in Abbottabad. As a reader, you become immersed in the blow by blow description of the assault and amazed by the courageous risks taken by Seal Team Six.
