Best in New Fiction for 2017


CHAMPAIGN – – Sometimes you just get enough of the “real world,” So why not escape it with a great mystery?

You might find what you’re looking for on the American Library Association’s new 2017 list of the best of fiction titles!

Librarian Nanette Donohue can tell you what’s on the list: she represented the Champaign Public Library on the American Library Association committee that put the list together!

“You read and you read and you read,” Donohue said. “After awhile you get a sense of the ones that truly stand out.”

She also told ciLiving that it’s important to put these lists together because libraries from all over the country use the list to choose which books to add to their collections. So you might be seeing these on your local library’s shelves soon!
