Winter Reading 2018

At, we kicked off 2018 with our fourth annual Winter Reading Contests and Feature. We hosted a series of 24-hour contests spotlighting a book releasing this winter (or a book publishing in the spring that we wanted to get on your radar now) and gave five lucky readers a chance to win it.

Even though our contests have wrapped up, we encourage you to take a look at this year's featured titles, as these are the books you'll want to read during the winter months --- and into the warmer ones!

Anna Quindlen, author of Alternate Side

Some days, Nora Nolan thinks that she and her husband, Charlie, lead a charmed life --- except when there’s a crisis at work, a leak in the roof at home, or a problem with their twins at college. And why not? New York City was once Nora’s dream destination, and her clannish dead-end block has become a safe harbor, a tranquil village amid the urban craziness. The owners watch one another’s children grow up. They use the same handyman. They trade gossip and gripes, and they maneuver for the ultimate status symbol: a spot in the block’s small parking lot.

Week of November 12, 2018

Paperback releases for the week of November 12th include Jeffery Deaver's THE CUTTING EDGE, in which Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs return to New York City to confront a killer terrorizing couples at their happiest --- and most vulnerable; FUTURE HOME OF THE LIVING GOD by Louise Erdrich, a startling portrait of a young woman fighting for her life and her unborn child against oppressive forces that manifest in the wake of a cataclysmic event; ALTERNATE SIDE, a provocative novel from Anna Quindlen that explores what it means to be a mother, a wife and a woman at a moment of reckoning; and BREAKING FREE, a searing memoir by the daughter of Warren Jeffs, the self-proclaimed Prophet of the FLDS Church, who takes you deep inside the secretive polygamist Mormon fundamentalist cult run by her family and how she escaped it.
