Great New Fiction!

Home - Realistic Fiction - LibGuides at Merrimack College

Back in the spring when parts of the country started to shut down, authors and publishers had to make decisions...go ahead and release their titles and forgo book tours, or delay the publication date in the hopes that by fall the virus would be contained and all would be back to normal. As I think I've mentioned before, many publishers chose to push release dates out, which means more titles are being released this fall than is typical.

To make sure you don't miss any of the great fiction that is out there this season, we've highlighted in the grid below what we think are some of the hot fiction titles for for the end of the year and for holiday giving. Some are already on our shelves, and others you'll need to pre-order or wait for, but I encourage you to click through the book jackets and read about these great works of fiction. Because of the publication delays the landscape is a little more crowded this season for authors and we want everyone to get their fair shot!

If you're looking for even more recommendations, check out our staff picks pages here. We are still fine tuning them but they've got lots of our current favorites!
