Sisterland by Curtis Sittenfeld

Curtis Sittenfeld (American Wife & Prep) continues to write novels that range widely in scope and tone. In Sisterland, identical twin sisters Kate and Violet were born with “senses” that foretell specific events and/or intimate details about their loved ones. When a premonition about a devastating earthquake comes to both of them, each one must make a choice about loyalty and accountability, and understand the delicate balance between believing and surrendering, especially when it comes to family bonds.

Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

A compelling new novel from the award-winning author of Half of a Yellow Sun.

“An incredibly readable and rich tapestry of Nigerian and American life, and the ways a handful of vivid characters—so vivid they feel like family—try to live in both worlds simultaneously. This is a very funny, very warm and moving intergenerational epic that confirms Adichie’s virtuosity, boundless empathy and searing social acuity.” —Dave Eggers, author of A Hologram for the King

The Redeemer by Jo Nesbø

This is the fourth book in in Norwegian Jo Nesbø’s Harry Hole series to be translated to English (it actually precedes The Snowman), and it’s one of his best. This highly suspenseful page-turner involves a sinister plot involving the Salvation Army during the Oslo Christmas season. “The Redeemer rocks!

Jo Nesbø is my new favorite thriller writer and Harry Hole my new hero. This

book had my pulse in the red zone from start to finish.” —Michael Connelly
