The National Book Award Winner and #1 New York Times best-seller from Colson Whitehead. A magnificent tour de force chronicling a young slave’s adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South.
“Moonglow” by Michael Chabon
“Moonglow” unfolds as the deathbed confession of a man the narrator refers to only as my grandfather. It is a portrait of the difficult but passionate love between the narrator’s grandfather and his grandmother, an enigmatic woman broken by her experience growing up in war-torn France. It is also a tour de force of speculative autobiography in which Chabon devises and reveals a secret history of his own imagination.
“The Whistler” by John Grisham
From John Grisham, America’s #1 bestselling author, comes the most electrifying novel of the year, a high-stakes thrill ride through the darkest corners of the Sunshine State.
Lacy Stoltz is an investigator for the Florida Board on Judicial Conduct. She is a lawyer, not a cop, and it is her job to respond to complaints dealing with judicial misconduct. After nine years with the Board, she knows that most problems are caused by incompetence, not corruption.
“Commonwealth” by Ann Patchett
The winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award and the Orange Prize tells the enthralling story of how an unexpected romantic encounter irrevocably changes two families’ lives.

“Swing Time” by Zadie Smith
Two girls dream of being dancers—but only one, Tracey, has talent. The other has ideas: about rhythm and time, about bodies and music, what constitutes a tribe, or makes a person truly free. It’s a close but complicated childhood friendship that ends abruptly in their early twenties, never to be revisited, but never quite forgotten, either.
“A Gentleman in Moscow” by Amor Towles
From the New York Times bestselling author of “Rules of Civility”—a transporting novel about a man who is ordered to spend the rest of his life inside a luxury hotel.
Brimming with humor, a glittering cast of characters and one beautifully rendered scene after another, this singular novel casts a spell as it relates the count’s endeavor to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be a man of purpose.
“Night School” by Lee Child
The incomparable hero of “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back” takes readers to school in his most explosive novel yet. After eleven straight global #1 best-sellers, discover the thrillers that the New York Times call “utterly addictive.”
From Langley to Hamburg, Jalalabad to Kiev, “Night School” moves like a bullet through a treacherous landscape of double crosses, faked identities and new and terrible enemies. Reacher maneuvers inside the game and outside the law
“Small Great Things” by Jodi Picoult
With richly layered characters and a gripping moral dilemma that will lead readers to question everything they know about privilege, power and race, “Small Great Things” is the stunning new page-turner from Jodi Picoult.
With incredible empathy, intelligence and candor, Jodi Picoult tackles race, privilege, prejudice, justice and compassion—and doesn’t offer easy answers. “Small Great Things” is a remarkable achievement from a writer at the top of her game.
“The Spy” by Paulo Coelho
When Mata Hari arrived in Paris she was penniless. Within months she was the most celebrated woman in the city. As a dancer, she shocked and delighted audiences; as a courtesan, she bewitched the era’s richest and most powerful men. As paranoia consumed a country at war, Mata Hari’s lifestyle brought her under suspicion. In 1917, she was arrested in her hotel room on the Champs Elysees and accused of espionage. Told in Mata Hari’s voice through her final letter, “The Spy” is the unforgettable story of a woman who dared to defy convention and who paid the ultimate price.
