LibraryReads February 2021 Picks

Every month, library staff from across the country have the chance to vote on upcoming adult titles that they loved reading and cannot wait to share. Participation is open to everyone who works in a public library, whether they are senior staff or new arrivals, in any area of the library. LibraryReads is designed to be inclusive and diverse, representing a broad range of reading tastes and showcasing a variety of new titles, including buzzed-about debuts, genre favorites, best-selling authors, and lesser-known midlist titles that public library staff are raving about.

Each month, the Top Ten list is announced via their e-mail newsletter and on the LibraryReads website, and we’ll be featuring it here on Booklist Reader, along with some extra lists now and again. (You can also download the list as a PDF here).
