Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee
This sequel to Harper Lee's celebrated classic To Kill a Mockingbird has generated some serious hype in the book world. Harper Lee wrote the manuscript in the 1950s, but was published posthumously (after the death of the author) when the manuscripts were found in 2015.
In this sequel, we meet Scout at 26 years old, returning from NYC to Alabama to visit her aging father, Atticus.
Critics either LOVE it or HATE it... what will you think?
The Book of Dust: La Belle Sauvage by Philip Pullman
Pullman, author of The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass is back 20 years after the His Dark Materials series was published. Sequels can be tricky - see above post! - but everyone seems to be losing their mind over this one.
And good news! This novel, which takes place in a parallel world to his previous series, is simply the first in a new trilogy.
The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline
If you liked the Hunger Games, Divergent or any number of dystopian novels that took over the book world in the last ten years - you've got to read this one. From the publisher:
"In a world nearly destroyed by global warming, the Indigenous people of North America are being hunted for their bone marrow, which carries the key to recovering something the rest of the population has lost: the ability to dream."

Turtles All the Way Down by John Green
THIS IS THE NEW JOHN GREEN NOVEL. Do I need to say much more? Readers everywhere have been waiting for ages for a new novel from John Green since the publication of The Fault in Our Stars was published in 2012. The wait is finally over!
And we have it in French!
Tortues à l'Infini par John Green
The Dry by Jane Harper
I am obsessed with this book!
I'll be honest with y'all - I consider myself somewhat of a connoisseur of thriller novels, and this one is crème de la crème. I read it cover-to-cover on a rainy Saturday and loved every dang minute of it.
This debut mystery takes place in Australia during the worst drought in a century. Small town, big secrets - the novel is UNPUTDOWNABLE.
I won't lie - as soon as I finished, I pre-ordered the sequel that comes out on February 6th. It's that good.
