Sarah: The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan

Helen: Adult Onset by Ann-Marie MacDonald

Susan: Sweetland by Michael Crummey

Diane: Spring Tide by Cilla and Rolf Börjlind

Kathleen: Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel 


This month we've loving Tony Abbot's The Copernicus Legacy, a fun new series. The Space Rocks series (Tom O'Donnell) is another great pick for middle-grade readers.

For teens, we recommend Blood Money by Anne Cassidy. 

Our favourite picture book this month is Garth Stein's Enzo Races in the Rain. And we love the board book Countablock, with eye-catching number-themed illustrations. 


We recommend Valour Road by John Nadler, Irving vs. Irving by Jacques Poitras, Ellen T. Harris's new biography of George Frideric Handel, and Allan Levine's Toronto: Biography of a City.

We are more than just novels - we have a great selection of bios, mysteries, classics, cookbooks, history, and of course, children's books! We like to have a little bit of everything at A Novel Spot.
