The first Pre-Reads of the year has finally arrived! Are you finished with reading all the books from last month? Is your New Year’s Resolution to read every 19th-century inspired tome published in 2016?? You’re in luck! The list below will get you started. All sixteen titles were gleaned from Amazon, Baker and Taylor, Kirkus Review, Library Journal, and Publisher’s Weekly. They were selected for being highly reviewed. I aim to cultivate a well rounded collection, however this months leans a little heavily in Slavery for the Non-Fiction group. Since these titles are hitting shelves this month, I have not had the pleasure to read them for myself. Thus, I cannot give you a Book Talk on the topic, per se. The summaries and reviews are directly taken from the publications listed above. Which books, Dear Readers, are you adding to your 2016 To-Read-List?
