  3. LJ Reviews Editors’ Spring Picks: Titles That Have Gotten Us Talking:

    Here at LJ, we receive about a thousand galleys per week. You might imagine that with that volume, it’s all a blur, and sometimes it feels that way. Still there are books that stand out, whether they’re from a beloved author, they’ve had a lot of buzz, they’re in a genre we’re newly addicted to, or—yes, it happens—the cover reeled us in. Below, then, are some of the titles that have gotten us talking lately, with thoughts from us and comments from their authors. A fun part of this for us is exploring materials in an area that’s not “ours”—in my case, that means stepping outside of reference to reveal my devotion to mystery novels. Perhaps it’s time to try some genre-jumping of your own.

    Check out all the books we picked!
