Every weekday, we feature a different review on Booklist Online that highlights starred reviews, high-demand titles, and/or titles especially relevant to our current issue’s spotlight. We’ve collected the reviews from October 10 through October 14 below, so that you can revisit the week’s best books.
Monday, October 10
Two by Two, by Nicholas Sparks
Best-selling Sparks celebrates his twentieth year of publishing with his twentieth book, a tale that will, as have his previous novels, induce readers to laugh, weep, and reflect on life’s endless challenges.
Tuesday, October 11
Midnight Star, by Marie Lu
Lu brings her Young Elites trilogy to a thunderous close with this final installment.
Wednesday, October 12
The Wrong Side of Goodbye, by Michael Connelly
Unlike so many authors of long-running series, Connelly continues to discover new depths to his character and new stories to tell that reveal those depths in always compelling ways.
Frantumaglia, by Elena Ferrante
In her own exceedingly quotable words, drawing on myth, theory, philosophy, and, of course, literature, the notoriously private Ferrante (author of the Neopolitan tetralogy, as well as three previous novels) reveals herself in her multitudes.

Bridget Jones’ Baby, by Helen Fielding
It’s been a rough few months for Bridget. When a little blue line confirms that she’s pregnant, she’s thrilled. Readers guess who the baby daddy is until the end of this little breeze of a book.
