THE FLATSHARE by Beth O’Leary

“O’Leary’s debut is a sweet, quirky novel about two complete opposites falling for one another under the cutest of circumstances.”–Booklist

RED, WHITE, & ROYAL BLUE by Casey McQuiston

Three starred reviews!
Exclusive interview with Booklist.

“The much-loved royal romance genre gets a fun and refreshing update in McQuiston’s debut…. A clever, romantic, sexy love story.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“The drama, which involves political rivals, possible betrayals, and even a meeting with the queen, is both irresistible and delicious. Readers will be eager to see more from McQuiston after this extremely promising start.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“In between sweet and steamy love scenes, RED, WHITE & ROYAL BLUE allows readers to imagine a world where coming out involves no self-loathing; where fan fiction and activist Twitter do actual good; and a diverse, liberal White House wins elections.”–Booklist, starred review

SUNSET BEACH by Mary Kay Andrews

“Andrews’ (THE HIGH TIDE CLUB) latest annual big beach read combines mystery, family secrets, a hint of romance, and a little bit of home renovation…. Andrews’ style ensures that this will be a relaxing read.”–Booklist

And Seanan McGuire doubles down on her Hall-of-Fame status with MIDDLEGAME, which also received three starred reviews!

THE GREAT ALONE and FORCE OF NATURE are February 2018 LibraryReads Picks!

FANTASTIC NEWS! Macmillan has two books on the February 2018 LibraryReads list!

Topping the list at #1 is THE GREAT ALONE by Kristin Hannah
A February 2018 Indie Next pick with two starred reviews! From the author of the worldwide phenomenon, THE NIGHTINGALE, comes a story of a family in crisis and a young girl struggling to survive at the edge of the world, in America’s last true frontier: Alaska. “Hannah’s follow-up to her series of blockbuster bestsellers will thrill her fans with its combination of Greek tragedy, Romeo and Juliet-like coming-of-age story, and domestic potboiler. She re-creates in magical detail the lives of Alaska’s homesteaders in both of the state’s seasons (they really only have two) and is just as specific and authentic in her depiction of the spiritual wounds of post-Vietnam America. A tour de force.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
