Pre-Reads are here! Which means it is the last Wednesday of the month! What a blur of activity I’ve had this February! According to my calendar I had literally 25 days worth of appointments and play dates scheduled! So it’s nice to eek out some time for our much beloved book post!
Below are eight fiction titles and eight non-fiction titles of recently published, soon to be published, or re-released (in the case of non-fiction) books coming out this month. The titles are highly reviewed via Amazon, Publisher’s Weekly, Kirkus Review, Library Journal, and Baker and Taylor’s website. Non-fiction, as its nature, is harder to find reviews for, but nevertheless I have combed through many sources to bring you readers all sixteen of these 19th century inspired titles. I try to present a well-rounded collection and not lean to heavily in one sub-genre or topic. In other words, there should be something for everyone! Due to their recent publication dates, I have not had the pleasure of reading any of these myself so I will be unable to assist you with a personal Reader’s Advisory pitch. Look for yourself and see if anything strikes your fancy. Which ones will you place on hold at your local library or bookstore? If you have read any of them already, do you agree with the review and recommend the title? Let us all know!
