Welcome to 2017! A new year, a new list of highly anticipated books! With the libraries closed today and tomorrow you have gobs of time to peruse these upcoming titles and place holds to your heart’s content.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, here are the LibraryReads favorite of favorites for 2016. And (spoiler alert–ha ha, not really) not all of those favorites were the top pick of their month! Even underdogs can come from behind for an upset.
Speaking of underdogs, I was surprised at how many of these author’s names on this January 2017 list were unrecognizable by me. And no wonder–except for a select few the books listed are either a debut title or only the second or third book they’ve published. That’s pretty fantastic!
So the top pick, and one of the six (!!!) debut titles, is The Girl Before by JP Delaney.
And now, for the rest:
The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
The Dry by Jane Harper
Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough
Books For Living by Will Schwalbe
The Second Mrs. Hockaday by Susan Rivers
The Fifth Petal by Brunonia Barry
The Most Dangerous Place on Earth by Lindsey Lee Johnson
Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson
Heartstone by Elle Katharine White
Enjoy something fresh and new in the New Year!
