Publisher’s Weekly: Best Books of 2017

Publisher’s Weekly puts out one of the best (and broadest) “Top Books of the Year” lists every year, and this year is no exception. They’ve pulled together 150 top-notch titles for adults, teens, and children that you can view here, and if that’s not enough, you can click through their top lists from previous years, as well as their best picks for summer reads. That’s a lot of books! And the good news is that the Waukegan Library owns a lot of these books, so if you find something interesting, check our catalog or contact us to place a hold!

To whet your appetite, here are the Top 10 Books of 2017 according to Publisher’s Weekly. Click the link for more information (and reviews!) about each of the books, and click on a book cover to place a hold in our catalog. (Titles not owned by the Library will redirect to the Publisher’s Weekly site. You can click here to make a purchase suggestion for the Library’s collection.)

























Happy reading!
