Happy #BookBday (12/5/17 Edition)

It’s a winter #BookBday wonderland!

YEAR ONE: Chronicles of the One by Nora Roberts
December 2017 Indie Next pick with two starred reviews! In the stunning beginning to an epic hardcover trilogy, #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts weaves an enthralling saga of suspense, survival, and the journey that will unite a desperate group of people to fight the battle of their lives. “Roberts’ new direction is electric and ground-breaking. A fast-paced, mesmerizing, and thought-provoking novel that will no doubt add to Roberts’ legions of fans.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

THREE DAUGHTERS OF EVE by Elif Shafak
December 2017 Indie Next pickPeri, a married, wealthy, beautiful Turkish woman, is on her way to a dinner party at a seaside mansion in Istanbul when a beggar snatches her handbag. As she wrests it back, a photograph falls to the ground: an old polaroid of three young women and their university professor. This relic from a past unearths a love that Peri has tried desperately to forget and the scandal that tore the three women apart. “Shafak’s…portrait of a woman in existential crisis feels universal, shining clarifying light on Islam—and religious spirituality in general—within the frame of today’s world.” — Kirkus Reviews

ULTRALUMINOUS by Katherine Faw
December 2017 Indie Next pickGirlfriend. Prostitute. Addict. Terrorist? Who is K? “Faw’s writing is raw and not for all tastes, but this incisive character study, featuring an exceptionally clear and memorable prose style, should find its audience.” — Publishers Weekly

GLASS TOWN by Steven Savile
A brilliantly rendered story about obsession and one man’s attempt to unravel the mystery that destroyed his grandfather’s life, set against a magical and intricately woven cityscape. “The prolific British author who writes for such popular franchises as Doctor Who makes an astoundingly inventive U.S. debut. With a vivid London setting and a tantalizing dose of cinematic history (including Alfred Hitchcock’s lost directorial debut), this dark fantasy should appeal to fans of Neil Gaiman.” — Library Journal
