RA for your Friday

First things first! If there are any titles from 2021 that you’d like to see added to our ebook collection, today’s the day to let me know! There is very little being published next week, so I’ll be filling next week’s OverDrive carts by combing through some Best of 2021 lists to see what I missed the first time around – but I’d much rather hear from you. Please e-mail me by Monday (12/20) at noon with your requests, if you have any.

And speaking of Best of 2021 lists.

We’ve got a veritable Icelandic book flood of Best of 2021 lists – picks from BookPage, LibraryReads, Library Journal, Town & Country, Esquire, CrimeReads (best debuts), Tor (best SFF), Time, People, Vulture, Slate (best audio), and The New Yorker.

Looking ahead, the January LibraryReads and Indie Next picks are out, and Book Riot is here with their 2022 Read Harder Challenge.

We’ve got reading recommendations for fans of Succession and books to read while you’re waiting for the Station Eleven adaptation.

Entertainment Weekly has rounded up the best 2021 holiday romance novels, and NYPL has readalikes for 10 holiday movies. (I have yet to find a readalike for my favorite holiday movie about a cranky book editor whose literal inner child manifests to help her rediscover joy.)

Finally, #FridayReads: I picked up Danny Trejo’s memoir a few nights ago, expecting to read a few pages before bed and ended up reading all of Part 1. I love when that happens. Happy reading, and Happy New Year – see you back here in January!
