Not Afraid: The Evolution of Eminem

Bozza’s eloquent tribute to Eminem will resonate with fans of hip-hop and enthusiasts of popular music biographies.

The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience

Broad in scope, this will appeal to a wide audience owing to the range of women spotlighted. Given its length, this is a book to savor over multiple sittings, allowing readers to revisit well-known heroines or discover new ones among the pages.

The Spoilt Quilt and Other Frontier Stories: Pioneering Women of the West

Western literature has passed in and out of fashion; at present there’s a movement toward openness and candor regarding the U.S. march to the west. This compilation provides an excellent starting point for book club discussions of Americans in these times.

Blossoms 666

The horrors of teen cliques as well as the machinations of demonic forces blossom throughout this latest from Bunn (Harrow County), Braga (Bombshells), and colorist Herms (Sonic Boom), unleashing a tense high school terror tale with vibrant visuals reminiscent of Patrick Nagel. [Previewed in Ingrid Bohnenkamp’s Graphic Novels spotlight, “Mass Appeal,” LJ 6/19.]

The Clergyman’s Wife: A Pride & Prejudice Novel

Recommended for general fiction collections and Austen fans eager to revisit the popular characters and places in Pride and Prejudice.


The Heap

Adams’s debut is an effective, jolting dystopic novel that should appeal widely. [See Prepub Alert, 10/22/19.]

Oprah Picks Olive and A Warning Arrives, also Page to Screen, Nov. 8, 2019 | Book Pulse

All the President’s Women: Donald Trump and the Making of a Predator

While many of the most shocking incidents discussed here are public knowledge, the significant new material and the book’s usefulness as a single-volume source on the topic make this not only a critical current read but one likely to become even more important in the future.


Dirty Letters

Readers who can overlook a few stretched plot points in order to enjoy the sizzling chemistry will gravitate to the latest entry from acclaimed writing duo Keeland and Ward (Hate Notes; “Rush” series).

Marfa Garden: The Wonders of Dry Desert Plants

Readers will be attracted to the surprising beauty of these dry desert plants and should consider using them to promote water conservation. An appealing choice for garden artists, landscapers, and home gardeners in the Southwest and elsewhere.

She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement

A compelling accounting of the events that helped ignite Me Too. Highly recommended for readers interested in social justice and the reporting process.

Stealing Cinderella: How I Became an International Fugitive for Love

Though it occasionally (if stereotypically) sheds light on differences between American and South Korean cultures, this memoir cannot be recommended. Readers in search of an American’s experience in South Korea might want instead to turn to Elizabeth Rice’s Rituals of Separation.

Doomsday Clock: Part 1

A tense and gripping homage to Watchmen’s dissection of costumed crime fighters that also seems interested in probing the limits of its ongoing influence. A must for series followers, and a boon for DC fans seeking next chapters in its ever-expanding universe.

Smoke Screen

Plot twists and likable characters light up this latest romantic suspense from best-selling author Blackstock (“Run” series). Themes of redemption and grace mark this love story that will be a hit among fans of Christian fiction and clean romantic suspense.

Protecting Tanner Hollow

Gripping and fast-paced romantic suspense recommended for readers of Dee Henderson, Dani Pettrey, and Colleen Coble.

James Baldwin: Living in Fire

A clear, incisive writer, Mullen succeeds with providing a fresh perspective on an author he so obviously admires. Recommended for readers seeking a broader understanding of the opinions of one of the great writers of the 20th century.
