All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr


 
“Endlessly bold and equally delicate…An intricate miracle of invention, narrative verve, and deep research lightly held, but above all a miracle of humanity….Anthony Doerr’s novel celebrates—and also accomplishes—what only the finest art can: the power to create, reveal, and augment experience in all its horror and wonder, heartbreak and rapture.” -Shelf Awareness

  The Bone Tree by Greg Iles


 
“’Great Expectations’ transplanted to an American South laced with comparably gothic overtones. . . . Establishes Iles as this generation’s William Faulkner, usurping Pat Conroy as our preeminent Southern writer and potentially establishing him as this era’s finest American novelist, thanks to this moving and meaningful masterpiece of storytelling.” -Providence Journal

  The Boston Girl by Anita Diamant


 
“Strong female ties form this story’s core. Through these relationships…Diamant brings to life a piece of feminism’s forgotten history [and reminds us] there will always be those who try to prescribe what you should be. Good friends are those who help you find out for yourself.” -Good Housekeeping

  Code of Conduct by Brad Thor


 
“Thor’s most ambitious, prescient and wondrously realized book yet reads like the best of James Bond sprinkled with just enough of a Vince Flynn’s Mitch Rapp-like edge…a thinking man’s thriller quilted in an action-adventure fabric that’s Thor at his very best.” -Providence Journal

  Finders Keepers by Stephen King


 
“As in Misery and The Shining, King swan dives into the looniness lurking at both ends of the writer-reader transaction…the narrative hums and roars along like a high-performance vehicle…a rip-snorting entertainment; one that also works as a sneaky-smart satire of literary criticism and how even the most attentive readers can often miss the wholepoint.” – Kirkus Review

  The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins


 
“Hawkins’s debut novel is a tangle of unreliable narrators, but what will have readers talking is her deft handling of twists and turns and her eerily fine-tuned narrative. This is one creepy, dark thriller. . . . The book is smartly paced and delightfully complex. Just when it seems Hawkins is leading us one way, Rachel, Anna, or Megan change the game. Nothing can be taken for granted in The Girl on the Train, not even the account of the girl herself.” – Las Vegas Weekly

  Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee


 
“What makes Go Set a Watchman memorable is its sophisticated and even prescient view of the long march for racial justice. Remarkably, a novel written that long ago has a lot to say about our current struggles with race and inequality.” – Chicago Tribune

Memory Man by David Baldacci


 
“Baldacci’s novels always have an emotional component…But MEMORY MAN stands out among his thrillers for its deeply felt – and earned – sense of catharsis and healing…Baldacci’s last few books have been among his best, and it’s a pleasure to see him produce emotionally and dramatically intense work at the height of his maturity as a novelist.”―Richmond Times-Dispatch

  A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler


“It’s been a long time since I read a book I wished would not end, purposely slowing my progress to save a bit for later. A Spool of Blue Thread was that kind of book . . . The Whitshanks are us, in a way, and this makes them endlessly interesting to watch, as well as very touching.” – Newsday
