September: Witch Elm by Tana French (9/25 & 9/26) Tana French’s novels are spine-tingling, suspenseful, and very difficult to put down. In it, you’ll meet Toby, who travels home to his family’s longtime home after suffering a violent attack by a pair of burglars he unwittingly surprised. There, Toby is able to help care for his uncle Hugo, whose health is failing. When an unidentified skull turns up in the yard, however, things take a mysterious turn.
October: Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult (10/23 & 10/24) Beloved bestselling author Jodi Picoult is back with a new novel that will keep your book club talking for hours. A Spark of Light is told in reverse chronological order, and takes place at an abortion clinic in Mississippi on the day that a shooter attacks the facility. At the clinic, readers will meet a hostage negotiator whose teenage daughter is stuck inside, an anti-abortion activist who is gathering information, and a woman who plans to terminate a pregnancy, among others. These storylines converge on the day of the attack, and readers will be riveted as they learn more about what brought each character to the clinic and how their lives will be changed by the gunman’s actions.

Carlos takes Nikole to a bar to have a drink and hide from the crowds, and soon sparks are flying.
December: Girls on the Line by Jennie Liu (12/18 & 12/19) Set in the city of Gujiao, China in 2009, this young adult novel explores the difficult choices a young girl and her best friend face when one of them becomes pregnant under China’s One-Child Policy. Now that they’ve come of age, Luli and Yun leave the orphanage they grew up in behind and begin to work at a local factory. The two are reveling in their newfound independence, but their joy is shattered when Yun discovers that she’s pregnant. Under the One-Child Policy, it’s illegal to be pregnant and unmarried. Yun is desperate to believe that her boyfriend Yong will help her, despite the rumors that he’s trafficking women out of the city as brides for men in the country.
