The latest batch of librarian favorites is here! Head to the LibraryReads website to see brief reviews submitted by librarians from across the country!
This month the list features titles released in December and January with titles ranging from biographical fiction to short stories to tearjerkers to travelogues. The top pick is from Pulitzer Prize winning author, Elizabeth Strout, who introduces us to Lucy Barton and her mother as Lucy recovers in the hospital from an illness. Melanie Benjamin’s previous novel, The Aviator’s Wife, is a book club favorite, and The Swans of Fifth Avenue is sure to become another popular pick for discussion. American Housewife, a collection of short stories, introduces us to a wide-ranging mix of clever and quirky women. Find out more about each LibraryReads selection in our catalog.
