LJ Fall 2018 Editors’ Picks

We’ve got two of Library Journal’s Fall 2018 Editors’ Picks!

“Twenty-five years after her groundbreaking RECLAIMING OPHELIA, which examined the lives of adolescent girls, psychologist Mary Pipher addresses the concerns of their older sisters in WOMEN ROWING NORTH: Navigating Life’s Currents and Flourishing as We Age (Bloomsbury USA, Jan. 2019) as they transition into late middle age. This is bound to become the bible of baby boomer women.” — Wilda Williams, former Fiction Editor, LJ Reviews

“Narrators who are revealed to be murderers and presumed-dead victims who show up in the second act: the bizarre twists of suspense novels have shocked me for years. Now that I’m a little older and a lot more jaded, Japanese author Keigo ­Higashino is the rare writer who still astonishes me—not with unexpected twists but with elegantly matter-of-fact prose, tightly crafted plots, and intriguing premises. Every year, I hope that another of his books has been translated into English; though he has dozens of novels to his name, most are available only in Japanese. I am being rewarded now with the sinuous NEWCOMER (Minotaur: St. Martin’s, Oct.). While the work centers on Mineko Mitsui, a middle-aged divorcée who is strangled in the Nihonbashi area of Tokyo, Higashino takes his time getting to her, first wending his way through the neighborhood shopkeepers whose lives briefly intersected with hers. The result is a complex and moving mystery that’s eventually solved by the astute Detective Kaga, whom fans may remember from MALICE.” Mahnaz Dar, Reference and Professional Reading Editor

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

LJ Editors’ Fall Picks 2016

Library Journal editors recently revealed their Fall 2016 picks, including these three Macmillan titles:

Mad Men fans meet Lillian Boxfish, once the highest paid female advertising copywriter in America. When Kathleen Rooney’s novel LILLIAN BOXFISH TAKES A WALK (St. Martin’s, Jan. 2017) opens, it’s New Year’s Eve in 1984 Manhattan, and 85-year-old Lillian is preparing to leave her Murray Hill apartment to go to dinner at Grimaldi’s, her favorite Italian restaurant. Along the way, she takes a detour down memory lane, reflecting on her life and walking through the streets of the city. Rooney says her novel was inspired by the life of advertising pioneer Margaret Fishback, who made her reputation in the 1930s working for Macy’s.” — Wilda Williams readmoreremove

Librarians “Shout ‘n Share” Their Favorite BEA 2015 Picks!

Last Friday we rounded out a terrific BEA 2015 with the annual Shout ‘n Share panel. Here’s what your librarian pals found on the show floor to rave about:

Columbus Metropolitan Library’s Robin Nesbitt kicked it off with some genre love, highlighting THE TRAITOR BARU CORMORANT by Seth Dickinson (“It’s like THE HUNDRED THOUSAND KINGDOMS meets GUNS, GERMS, AND STEEL!”) and Sarah Ward’s debut mystery, IN BITTER CHILL, which she said is perfect for fans of Louise Penny, Sharon Bolton, and Elizabeth George.

New York Public Library/Bookops’s Charlene Rue was captivated by Damon Tweedy’s medical memoir, BLACK MAN IN A WHITE COAT, which was also a BEA Editor’s Buzz pick.

Massachusetts Library System’s Kristi Chadwick loved Elsa Hart’s historical mystery debut about an exiled librarian, JADE DRAGON MOUNTAIN. “The language, the prose is so beautiful it takes you into the story and keeps you going page after page.” She also gave two enthusiastic thumbs up for Jenny Lawson’s humorous memoir of mental illness, FURIOUSLY HAPPY, saying, “she knows how to hit the heart and make sure you know you’re not alone if you’re struggling with this.”

Baltimore County Public Library’s Jamie Watson tweeted that if she had more time she would have called out Maggie Mitchell’s PRETTY IS.

Library Journal‘s Wilda Williams shared that reading THE KILLING LESSONS by Saul Black “will make you want to lock all the doors in your house,” and she revealed that Saul Black is a pseudonym for bestselling author Glen Duncan, who wrote THE LAST WEREWOLF. She also recommended THE MARK AND THE VOID by Paul Murray, noting that “it has the same humor, warmth and pathos as SKIPPY DIES.”

From the floor, Michael Santangelo of Brooklyn Public Library gave a shout out to THE BURGLAR’S GUIDE TO THE CITY by Geoff Manaugh.

Curious about other buzzworthy books? Check out Publishers Weekly‘s recap of the AAP Librarian’s Book Buzz, Part 2 which includes a photo of Anne and our other library marketing pals!
