In this newsletter, you will find books releasing the weeks of January 2nd and January 9th that we think will be of interest to Bookreporter.com readers, along with Bonus News, where we call out a contest, feature or review that we want to let you know about so you have it on your radar.
This week, we are calling attention to the hardcovers and paperbacks releasing this month, which you can find in our Coming Soon feature.
Please keep in mind our very special End-of-the-Year contest featuring Carol Fitzgerald’s Bookreporter.com Bets On picks from 2016. One Grand Prize winner will be awarded all 40 books, while eight other winners will receive a selection of five of these titles. The deadline for entries is Monday, January 9th at noon ET.
On ReadingGroupGuides.com, we're asking book groups to help us compile our "Best Books of the Year" list. Share both your favorite book that you read with your group in 2016 and your favorite book that you read outside your group by Tuesday, January 31st at noon ET, and you will be eligible to win SIX advance copies of fantastic titles that are coming out this year: THE TEA GIRL OF HUMMINGBIRD LANE by Lisa See, A PIECE OF THE WORLD by Christina Baker Kline, THE HOPE CHEST by Viola Shipman, MUSIC OF THE GHOSTS by Vaddey Ratner, THE WOMEN IN THE CASTLE by Jessica Shattuck, and THE CHILBURY LADIES' CHOIR by Jennifer Ryan.
