Winter Reading 2018

At Bookreporter.com, we kicked off 2018 with our fourth annual Winter Reading Contests and Feature. We hosted a series of 24-hour contests spotlighting a book releasing this winter (or a book publishing in the spring that we wanted to get on your radar now) and gave five lucky readers a chance to win it.

Even though our contests have wrapped up, we encourage you to take a look at this year's featured titles, as these are the books you'll want to read during the winter months --- and into the warmer ones!

Anatomy of a Scandal by Sarah Vaughan

Sophie’s husband James is a loving father, a handsome man, a charismatic and successful public figure. And yet he stands accused of a terrible crime. Sophie is convinced he is innocent and desperate to protect her precious family from the lies that threaten to rip them apart. Kate is the lawyer hired to prosecute the case: an experienced professional who knows that the law is all about winning the argument. And yet Kate seeks the truth at all times. She is certain James is guilty and is determined he will pay for his crimes. Who is right about James? Sophie or Kate? And is either of them informed by anything more than instinct and personal experience?

Week of October 1, 2018

Paperback releases for the week of October 1st include LEONARDO DA VINCI, in which Walter Isaacson weaves a narrative that connects Leonardo's art to his science, showing how his genius was based on skills we can improve in ourselves --- such as passionate curiosity, careful observation, and an imagination so playful that it flirted with fantasy; Liza Mundy's CODE GIRLS, the award-winning national bestseller about the American women who secretly served as codebreakers during World War II; CARNEGIE'S MAID by Marie Benedict, which tells the story of one brilliant woman who may have spurred Andrew Carnegie's transformation from ruthless industrialist into the world's first true philanthropist; and IT'S ALL RELATIVE, A.J. Jacobs' hilarious, heartfelt quest to understand what constitutes family --- where it begins and how far it goes --- and his attempt to untangle the true meaning of the “Family of Humankind.”

Anatomy of a Scandal by Sarah Vaughan

February 2018

In ANATOMY OF A SCANDAL by Sarah Vaughan, James, a British politician, has been accused of a horrific crime. His wife, Sophie, is embarrassed by the accusation, but stands by him. She doubts he could have done this terrible thing, right? He is a good father, and a rising star, with connections to the Prime Minister, who he has known since his schoolboy days. But she also knows that James has a big secret from the past --- one that could haunt him if it is uncovered. This has her wondering, though she so wants to believe him.
