LibraryReads: March List

The March Library Reads list shows a lot of librarian love for the mystery and suspense categories, beginning with the number one title:

The Weight of Blook

The Weight of Blood by Laura McHugh (RH/Spiegel & Grau; March 11)

“The Dane family has been keeping secrets in the Ozark town of Henbane for years. An outsider steals the heart of one of the Dane brothers, and the secrets threaten to unravel. When sixteen-year-old Lucy’s friend is found murdered after being missing for a year, Lucy begins to ask questions – the answers to which may destroy her family. Atmospheric and visceral, McHugh’s story is vividly and effectively told.” — Jennifer Winberry, Hunterdon County Library, Flemington, NJ

Also included are new titles by Chris Pavone, Elly Griffiths, Alice LaPlante, and the following debut:

Precious ThingPrecious Thing, Colette McBeth, (Macmillan/Minotaur; Brilliance audio; March 4)

“Clara and Rachel have been friends since high school. Life has intervened and they’ve grown apart, so when Clara invites Rachel for drinks to catch up, it’s a chance to reconnect. But before that can happen, Rachel is called to cover a missing girl story, and the missing girl is Clara. Was she abducted, murdered or did she simply leave on her own? In the vein of Gone Girl and The Husband’s Secret, this is a fast read that is sure to entertain.” — Robin Nesbitt, Columbus Metropolitan Library, Columbus, OH

Remember that several of these titles will be available as egalleys on either Edelweiss or Netgalley until publication date, so you still have time to get to know them. For ordering information, including alternate formats, check our spreadsheet, LibraryReads through March.
