The Almost Queen

A first-tier purchase for libraries where romantic fantasies are popular, especially ones with crossover appeal for older teens.

Five Decembers

This is hardboiled fiction at its best: an exceptional tale, filled with emotion, plenty of surprises, and enough violence to satisfy the most bloodthirsty reader.

The Death of Jane Lawrence

Starling’s (The Luminous Dead) gothic horror is an immersive delight that will be adored by fans of alternate histories, the film Crimson Peak, ghost stories, magical experiments gone wrong, and stories about women becoming aware of their own power.

Blood & Bone: An Anthology of Body Horror by Women and Non-Binary Writers

An important addition to any horror collection but especially for libraries looking to diversify. Recommend to readers of Ellen Datlow’s collection Body Shocks, and Trigger Warning: Body Horror edited by Desiree Baltisberger.

David Copperfield’s History of Magic

An immersive tour of magic through the ages that will appeal most to readers with a fondness for Copperfield.

The Annotated Mrs. Dalloway

A rich work that ably supports readers and teachers.

These Precious Days: Essays

For the author’s many fans and anyone who loves beautiful writing.

Duke, Actually

This smashing sequel is packed with delightful characters, snappy dialogue, and a fairy-tale European setting. A top pick for every holiday romance reading list.

Death at Greenway

This is an intriguing mystery with well-developed characters and fascinating historical details. For fans of Charles Todd and Jacqueline Winspear.

Interstellar Angel

Navarre’s sci-fi romance is fast-paced, erotic, and brutal. Book one ends on a cliffhanger, so be prepared to order books two and three to meet reader demand.

The First Christmas: A Story of New Beginnings

Readers don’t need a religious background to be entertained and educated by this account of the first Christmas.


White takes our collective pandemic anxieties and weaves them into a wonderfully weird and unexpected horror tale. Don’t overlook this gem.

The Christmas Wish

Libraries owning the other “Blessings, Georgia” books will need to buy copies; and fans of Debbie Macomber, Diana Palmer, and Robyn Carr might enjoy picking up this interconnected series by Sala.

The Bachelor’s Valet

Recommended for library patrons who would enjoy a cozy, queer romance with sparkling prose, fade-to-black love scenes, and light magic.

SuperSight: What Augmented Reality Means for Our Lives, Our Work, and the Way We Imagine the Future

This will appeal to entrepreneurs looking for ways to use technology to create innovative and practical business ventures.

Professor Charlatan Bardot’s Travel Anthology to the Most (Fictional) Haunted Buildings in the Weird, Wild World

An ambitious and beautifully constructed anthology that fans of the genre won’t want to miss; a necessary addition to any library.


This is a brilliantly written and constructed portrait of a true icon of the cinema.

Hard To Love

Sure to be a favorite for sports romance fans.

Christmas in Full Bloom

The Christmas charm runs high while the romantic stakes remain low, which will appeal to readers looking for a stress-free holiday romance.

Tony Hillerman: A Life

Recommended mostly for Hillerman’s devoted fans.

Confessions of His Christmas Housekeeper

Readers won’t be able to put down this Christmas romance until all of the secrets of Giacomo and Louise’s relationship are revealed. This title will please those who love to see a couple reunite and overcome their dark past with an inspiring, emotional journey.

Smart Girl

Purchase where science fiction and futuristic graphic novels are popular.

Echoes of the Dead

The series has through lines, but each book can be read as a stand-alone; this installment is great for readers looking for a Stephen King–like scare.

Foolish Hearts

Williams’s novel doesn’t shy away from family dysfunction, and sometimes there are no easy answers, keeping readers guessing until the end. Recommended for all public libraries.

A Prime’s Passion

Recommended for libraries where Walker’s books are popular or paranormals are in demand.

The Philip Roth We Don’t Know: Sex, Race, and Autobiography

Academic libraries and large Roth collections may want to purchase.

The Next Apocalypse: The Art and Science of Survival

Full of witty anecdotes about survivalism and prepper culture, Begley’s book is an absolute joy to read and a hidden gem. Pass along to readers who enjoyed Bradley Garrett’s Bunker: Building for the End Times.

Jingle Bell Wolf

This feel-good holiday read has a few subplots that fizzle out (someone Gabrielle dated briefly pursues her intensely, then is dropped without explanation, and her friends solve a mystery with no real suspense; plus, Gabrielle’s fear of snow and ice is glossed over) but Spear’s many fans will be waiting to read about the Wolffs, so libraries should purchase accordingly.

Holly Jolly Cowboy

Some may find the enemies-to-lovers transformation takes too long, but those who love the idea of winning over an irritable cowboy might appreciate Holly’s efforts to put Adam in his place. Readers looking for a cowboy fix should start with the earlier titles in the “Painted Barrel” series, particularly the Christmas-themed ones.

Double Take

Recommended for libraries where the first book circulated well or for die-hard PI fans.

The Christmas Bookshop

Get ready to root for these charming characters as they bungle their way toward a merry Christmas

A Season for Second Chances

Bayliss’s fans and readers who enjoy laugh-out-loud rom-coms will want to spend a cozy winter evening by the fire with Annie and the residents of Willow Bay.

The Holiday Swap

Knox serves up a delicious romantic comedy à la Christina Lauren or Emily Henry.

A Winter’s Earl: A Regency Christmas Romance

The red-hot love scenes, tender emotions, and Two Men and a Baby–style comedy will leave readers eager for Greene’s next romance.

Her Wolf in the Wild

Gray twists paranormal tropes into a steamy take on fated mates. Recommended for all public libraries seeking more paranormal romance.

The Last Season

An undistinguished historical romance whose predictable plot is made worse by the pacing. Readers won’t be satisfied by the lackluster conclusion.

Once Upon a Chef: Weeknight/Weekend

A recommended purchase for public libraries. Personal anecdotes will delight Segal’s followers, and will draw in others new to her cooking.

Women in the Picture: What Culture Does with Female Bodies

A thought-provoking purchase for academic library art history and women’s studies collections.
