From the publisher: “a timely moral thriller of the Jewish underground resistance in Jerusalem after the Second World War.” O’Nan has written many other highly regarded novels, including Emily, Alone; West of Sunset; and Last Night at the Lobster.

Eligible: A Modern Retelling of Pride and Prejudice by Curtis Sittenfeld
It’s all there in the subtitle. You can trust the author of Prep, American Wife, and Sisterland to do a great job with Austen’s beloved classic.

Alice & Oliver by Charles Bock
“In Alice & Oliver, Charles Bock (Beautiful Children) draws on the experience of his late wife’s battle with leukemia to create an intensely realistic and harrowing portrayal of a young woman’s desperate fight for life against a relentless disease.”-Shelf Awareness

Keep Me Posted by Lisa Beazley
“Lisa Beazley’s warmhearted first novel explores what happens when snail-mail letters between two sisters end up on the Internet.” –Shelf Awareness
If you liked other epistolary novels or memoirs like Love, Nina by Nina Stibbe, Graduates in Wonderland by Jessica Pan and Rachel Kapelke-Dale, or Attachments by Rainbow Rowell,  Keep Me Posted is for you.

Now and Again by Charlotte Rogan
The author of The Lifeboat (2012) returns with another morally complex novel told in parallel narratives: Maggie, a wife and mother in Oklahoma, and a group of Iraq veterans who begin a website to share the truth about the war, all struggle to do the right thing – but first they have to figure out what that is.

RavenKingIf you’re an adult who reads YA (or a teen who’s reading this blog) and you like fantasy, you’ve probably been eagerly awaiting the fourth and final book in Maggie Stiefvater’s Raven Cycle: The Raven King. And this month it has finally arrived! If you’re not familiar with this series, you’ll definitely want to start at the beginning, with The Raven Boys. 

Remember to check Overdrive and hoopla for e-book and digital audiobook versions of these and many other new books!

Are you planning to read any of these? What other books are you looking forward to, or currently enjoying?
