The Best Book Day of 2012

POSTED BY prbythebook ON September 28, 2012

Well, September has just about wrapped up and now it’s on to October! Publisher’s Weekly already has a fun way to kick us off. They’ve named October 2nd, The Best Book Day of 2012. Instead of doing a weekly article of “Picks,” they decided that the books coming out the week of October 2nd warrant a greater recognition. Why October 2nd? This week has more books than any other pub week this year! So, here it is, a fine list of 32 books to kick off your pub month:

For the Thrill Seeker

Live by Night by Dennis Lehane (Morrow) – Bestseller Lehane chronicles the Prohibition-era rise of Joe Coughlin, an Irish-American gangster, in this masterful crime epic.

 

 

 

 

Phantom by Jo Nesbø, trans. from the Norwegian by Don Bartlett (Knopf) – In Nesbø’s deeply moving seventh Harry Hole novel to be published in the U.S., Harry returns to Oslo from Hong Kong to help his estranged 18-year-old son, who has fallen in with a group of drug users.

 

 

 

For the Kid (or the Kid in You)

A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel by Madeline L’Engle, adapted and illus. by Hope Larson (FSG/Ferguson) – L’Engle’s Newbery Medal–winning 1962 novel of good, evil, and quantum physics gets a stellar graphic novel treatment from Eisner-winner Larson.
