New Books

Great December New Releases!

While the last six weeks of the year are notoriously light on amazing new releases, there are still a few. So I have made you a list of notable books out this month. (Because I love you and I want you to read books and be happy!) And you can hear Rebecca and I discuss some of our favorite novels of 2016 on this week’s new episode of the All the Books! We talked about awesome books such as The Underground Railroad, Homegoing, and Sweetgirl.

mother-nile-book-coverThis week’s newsletter is sponsored by Mother Nile by Warren Adler.

A dazzling triumph from the NYT bestselling author of The War of the Roses – high-caliber historical fiction that plunges readers into a rich, dark world of sex, power, politics, drugs, and Egypt.

A sweeping and ambitious novel spanning across two eras and the city at the center of it all,

Mother Nile is the story of Si, the American-born son of an Irish father and Egyptian mother, who goes on a journey through the winding streets of the City of the Dead in Cairo to solve a half-century-old mystery. When his mother makes an urgent plea on her deathbed, Si knows that he must go to Egypt to uncover the truth about his long-lost half-sister, conceived during his mother’s affair with King Farouk.
