THE THINGS WE KEEP & ORNAMENTS OF DEATH are January 2016 LibraryReads Picks
FANTASTIC NEWS! Macmillan has two books on the January 2016 LibraryReads list!
Coming in at #7 is THE THINGS WE KEEP by Sally Hepworth. Librarians across the country are gushing over this novel reminiscent of Nicholas Sparks’s THE NOTEBOOK and Lisa Genova’s STILL ALICE about a 38-year-old woman with early onset Alzheimer’s who falls in love with another care home resident. “Sure to appeal to fans of Jojo Moyes, Jodi Picoult, and Lisa Genova; book clubs will be lining up.” — Library Journal, starred review
Loved THE THINGS WE KEEP Sally Hepworth about early onset dementia. Amazing how realistically imagined the characters experience are #ewgc

The #8 pick is ORNAMENTS OF DEATH by Jane Cleland.
The tenth book in Cleland’s antiques mystery series features Josie Prescott, an amateur sleuth/antiques appraiser in New Hampshire. “Josie continues her investigation, solving the murder and finding the miniatures again in this satisfying cozy with its plot twists and large cast of well-drawn, sympathetic characters—all framed nicely by details of the antiques business in small-town New Hampshire during the Christmas season. Fans of Sharon Fiffer’s Jane Wheel series will enjoy this one.” — Booklist
