|| December 8 - A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman. A grumpy yet loveable man finds his solitary world turned on its head when a boisterous young family moves in next door.
|January 12 - Before the Fall by Noah Hawley.
On a foggy summer night, eleven people--ten privileged, one down-on-his-luck painter--depart Martha 's Vineyard headed for New York. Sixteen minutes later, the unthinkable happens: the plane plunges into the ocean. The only survivors are Scott Burroughs--a struggling painter--and a four-year-old boy, who is now the last remaining member of a wealthy and powerful media mogul's family.
|February 9 - The Egyptologist by Arthur Phillips.
Howard Carter has just made one of the great discoveries of all time--the unveiling of Tutankhamen's tomb. At the same time, Egyptologist Ralph Trilipush finds himself in a slightly less spectacular position. He has staked everything on a scrap of hieroglyphic pornography. Halfway around the world, an Australian detective sets off on a globetrotting quest to find a murderer. Or two. Or three. These events, seemingly unrelated, are about to collide in a spectacular yet utterly unpredictable fashion.
|March 9 - The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald.
It all began with a correspondence between two quite different women: 28-year-old Sara from Haninge, Sweden, and 65-year-old Amy from the small town of Broken Wheel, Iowa. After years of exchanging books, letters and thoughts on the meaning of literature and life, Sara bravely decides to accept her unknown friend's invitation to visit. But when she arrives, she finds her house empty, the funeral guests just heading home. And what choice does Sara have, faced with a town where nobody reads and her desire to honor her friend, but to set up the perfect bookshop with all the books she and Amy shared.
|April 13 - The Fault In Our Stars by John Green.
