If you loved Eleanor & Park and Fangirl, you probably already know that Rainbow Rowell has a new book out, Landline.  In her first adult novel since Attachments, Rowell tells the story of TV writer Georgie McCool.  Georgie and her husband Neal have been slowly drifting apart, and things seem worse than ever when 2 days before Christmas Georgie tells Neal she has to skip the annual trip back to Omaha in favor of working.  But while Neal is away, Georgie finds a new way to communicate with him: a magic phone that seemingly calls Neal in the past, while they were just dating.  Sure, it’s a weird concept, but it totally works.  If you’re looking for a unique love story that you won’t be able to put down, this book is for you!

Lola Nolan has a pretty great life: a hot musician boyfriend, a super-smart sleuth for a best friend, and an awesome collection of wigs to go with all of the clothes she designs.  Everything is great until the day twins Cricket and Calliope Bell move back to the neighborhood.  Lola and Cricket have a long history together, which Lola is now forced to confront.  If you liked Anna and the French Kiss, you’ll love this book!  It’s a great romance, interesting characters, and a great setting in San Francisco.  Highly recommended!
