February was definitely an easier month for which to pick a good number of new Nonfiction and Fiction releases that I’m excited about. I think January is typically a less active month in the publishing world, so I had a harder time ferreting titles out that I felt truly compelling. This month, on the other hand, I had to cull my list down from 20 titles or so to ones that I thought sounded the most interesting.
I would also add Claire Fuller’s Swimming Lessons to the list but I’ve already read it (here is my review). It was available to Book Of The Month subscribers as an exclusive and one of their five December 2016 picks, but will be released in hardcover to everyone else on February 7th 2017. I highly recommend it – the way in which the story is in part told through past letters written by the absent mother figure in the novel is fascinating.

Book Of The Month is a subscription service that sends you one hardcover work of modern fiction per month for a monthly subscription fee. You can add 2 more titles to your monthly delivery for $9.99 each, and the price overall is very cheap for full-size hardcovers.
Book Of The Month is not paying me to promote their service. I just love it so much that I’ve turned my monthly deliveries into a feature on my blog 🙂 I do encourage you to try it though, because if you like hardcovers it’s a great deal.

The three titles I picked for my December 2016 delivery were Swimming Lessons by Claire Fuller (which was a Book Of The Month exclusive and will be released to the general public on February 7th, 2017), Missing, Presumed by Susie Steiner and Siracusa by Delia Ephron. I loved Swimming Lessons, liked Missing, Presumed and I did not like Siracusa. Here are my reviews.
