LJ’s Notable Books of 2017

In addition to Library Journal‘s Best Books of 2017 list, the editors revealed their Notable Books of 2017, including:

A CONJURING OF LIGHT by V.E. Schwab
“The final installment in Schwab’s “Shades of Magic” trilogy has been my personal favorite book of the year—and the series itself is one that I’ve recommended to readers a hundred times over. All along, Schwab has been spinning an enchanting tale worthy of a spot on the shelf next to Harry Potter, and it all comes to a head here as her superbly written characters fight to stop the darkness overtaking their world. It was certainly a delicate balance between wanting to race through the pages to know how it ends and savoring the experience, knowing it’d be my last traipse through Red London.” — Kate DiGirolomo, SELF-e Community Coordinator readmoreremove

Happy #BookBday (3/24/14 Edition)

Oh what a lovely day for a #BookBday! Today we celebrate:

THE DOG WHO SAVED ME by Susan Wilson
A former Boston K-9 unit policeman turned animal control officer in bucolic Harmony Farms is up against rescuing a gun shy and wounded dog gone feral, and proving that his low-life older brother is back in the drug business. “…easily readable, emotion-wracked drama about love lost and found…” — Kirkus Reviews

THE ILLUMINATIONS by Andrew O’Hagan
After a young man returns to Scotland, the secrets and lies that have shaped generations of his family begin to emerge as he and his grandmother set out to confront a mystery from her past among the Blackpool Illuminations—the dazzling artificial lights that brighten the seaside resort town as the season turns to winter. “It’s remarkable how much human territory O’Hagan explores and illuminates.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
