Weekly Update

Thank you to those of you who sent birthday wishes to Tom Donadio last week. When we came back from the long weekend on Tuesday, he mentioned he received a number of great notes!

I LOVE the picture that I received from Beth, who was the Grand Prize winner of our End-of-the-Year Bets On Contest (you can see it above). She shared, “I just sent you a picture of me with all the Bets On selections from 2019 that I won. I received the last two boxes tonight. I’m so excited to read and listen to them! Thanks so much! I enjoy Bookreporter and ReadingGroupGuides so much, and it’s a dream come true to read all these books!” I am so looking forward to seeing her comments as she reads them.

On Sale This Week

In this newsletter, you will find books releasing the weeks of February 17th and February 24th that we think will be of interest to Bookreporter.com readers, along with Bonus News, where we call out a contest, feature or review that we want to let you know about so you have it on your radar.

This week, we are calling attention to our Favorite Monthly Lists & Picks feature for February, which includes Indie Next, LibraryReads, the Barnes & Noble Book Club, the Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club, the Jenna Bush Hager "Read with Jenna" Today Show Book Club, and more.

We also are spotlighting Carol Fitzgerald's "Bookreporter Talks To" interview with Allison Pataki, whose new historical novel, THE QUEEN'S FORTUNE: A Novel of Desiree, Napoleon, and the Dynasty That Outlasted the Empire, is now in stores and will be a Bets On pick. In addition to talking in-depth about the book, Allison and Carol discuss women at the forefront of history, Allison's research in Paris, and the ways in which her personal life has affected her historical storytelling over the years.

It is with a heavy heart that I announce this will be my last newsletter. I’ve been with The Book Report Network for the past seven years and serving you serious (and not so serious!) pop culture and book content for the past six. If you’ve been keeping count, you’ll know that’s roughly 150 newsletters, give or take a few. Wow wow wow!
