Off the Shelf: Busiest Book Season in Full Swing as Loads of New Books Released

By Sharon Saye on September 27, 2017 from Off the Shelf via

Fall is the busiest season of the year for book publishers; it is the lead up to the Christmas book-giving holiday and publishers do their best to release their top books.  2017 is no different than previous years and readers have loads of choices from which to choose.
September has been an especially rich month with new books from Jesmyn Ward, “Sing, Unburied, Sing,” and Celeste Ng, “Little Fires Everywhere.”  Other fiction writers with new books already on the shelves are: “Forest Dark,” by Nicole Krauss, “A Legacy of Spies” by John Le Carre, “Five-Carat Soul” by James McBride, “A Column of Fire” by Ken Follett, “The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye” by David Lagercrantz, “Sleeping Beauties” by Stephen King and Owen King, “To Be Where You Are” by Jan Karon, “Secret in Death” by J. D. Robb, and “Don’t let Go” by Harlan Coben.
October promises the latest books from John Green, “Turtles All the Way Down” and Dan Brown, “Origin.”  There are also new titles by the following authors: “Manhattan Beach” by Jennifer Egan,  “Fresh Complaint” by Jeffrey Eugenides, “Uncommon Type” by Tom Hanks, “The Rooster Bar” by John Grisham, “Two Kinds of Truth” by Michael Connelly, “The Rules of Magic” by Alice Hoffman, “Winter Solstice” by Elin Hilderbrand, “Paris in the Past Tense” by Mark Helprin, “Lilac Lane” by Sherryl Woods, “Children of the Fleet” by Orson Scott Card, and “Without Merit” by Colleen Hoover.
November brings Andy Weir, the author of “The Martian,”, back to space with an adventure novel set on the moon in “Artemis.”  Other authors gracing November include Janet Evanovich with “Hardcore Twenty-Four,” David Baldacci with “End Game,” Lee Child with the latest Jack Reacher novel, “The Midnight Line,” James Patterson with “The People vs. Alex Cross,” Louise Erdrich with “Future Home of the Living God,” David Ignatius with “The Quantum Spy,” and Brandon Sanderson’s third book in the Stormlight Archive, “Oathbringer.”
And Nora Roberts begins her own dystopian series, “Year One, “in December.
These are only a few of the books about to hit the library’s shelves; there are far too many to keep up with in the hectic months preceding the holidays, but perfect for those snowy nights in winter.
So mark down some of these titles for your later reading pleasure.
