Book Hunters in Brief #93: Further Reading for Gulf Coast Reads

There's a feeling that all readers know when they the last words on the last page of a good book. Actually, I don't think it's a feeling; it is many feelings all swirling together: exhilaration, satisfaction, contentment, pride, but also hunger for the next book and a twinge of doubt that they'll ever find another that will give such pleasure.

Book Hunters can't guarantee they'll find you that book--it might not yet exist--but we can get you close to it, and show you some of other possible directions you could choose. Whether you're looking for something very similar to what you've been reading, or something completely different, Book Hunters can help.

This week's Book Hunters in Brief is for all of you who are joining us in reading The Promise by Ann Weisgarber for Gulf Coast Reads. Here are some suggestions for what to read next:

Maude Brown's Baby by Richard Cunningham

The Drowning House by Elizabeth Black

Through a Night of Horrors: Voices from the 1900 Galveston Storm by Casey Edward Greene and Shelly Henley Kelly

Dark Water Rising by Marian Hale

Upside Down in the Middle of Nowhere by Julie T. Lamana.
