How many of you check magazines and newspapers for the next best read? Such as Red Book, Real Simple, Glamour, or USA Today? These lists usually comprise what is currently the hottest books in the market. I myself usually find these lists interesting to see what the selections are and which authors are included.
A website or blog has recently joined these hot magazines in offering the hottest books. This site is Pop Sugar. The posts are written by author Brenda Janowitz. We currently have her latest book The Dinner Party. I thought it would be fun to see what titles DCPL has that were recently noted on her 50 Books of 2016 list.
So here are some titles from the best of 2016 that you can find at DCPL:
