The best eBooks and audiobooks coming out this week

Before she was a book club-convening media mogul, Reese Witherspoon was a young movie star who portrayed characters including the unforgettably ambitious high schooler Tracy Flick in the film Election. That film was based on a novel by the same name by Tom Perotta (who also penned the TV and film-spawning books Mrs. Fletcher, The Leftovers, and Little Children, by the way) and in the sequel Tracy Flick Can’t Win readers get to catch up with now-Principal Flick (actually it’s “assistant” principal—but not for long if she can position herself correctly at the time of Principal Weede’s retirement!) and learn that no matter our childhood ambitions, the disappointments and frustrations of adulthood come for us all.

When we had paleontologist Steve Brusatte on Kobo in Conversation we could tell he was just itching to keep telling the story of prehistoric land animals, past the extinction of the dinosaurs. And with The Rise and Reign of the Mammals he charts that history right up until modern humans. Whether you’re a hardcore paleo-nerd who can’t wait for another Jurassic World movie, or are completely over the franchise, or you were wowed by Apple TV+’s Prehistoric Planet docu-series, this might be just the scientific escape into under-explored parts of prehistory you’re looking for.

Sulari Gentill’s new novel The Woman in the Library represents a departure for the author of the Rowland Sinclair Mysteries of historical whodunits. This new book is a closed-door mystery-within-a-mystery but with twists along a literary line. First, we’re getting this story of four strangers in the Boston Public Library from Hannah, a writer from whose imagination four characters have sprung, and who’s writing the story of their cooperative sleuthing to determine the identity of a woman whose scream they all heard. Hannah is corresponding with Leo, another author, who’s offering feedback (a lot of it not terribly constructive; some of it disturbing) about Hannah’s writing. The novel reveals itself over time to be a fascinating clockwork that’ll have you wanting to re-read it just to see how the pieces came together.
