Waterstones reveals 2016 Book Club titles
Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller (Fig Tree), the Desmond Elliott Prize winner is among the eight novels to have made it onto the Waterstones New Year Book Club, commencing in January.
Also published by Penguin Random House and making it into the club is Crooked Heart by Lissa Evans (Black Swan), which follows Noel and Vee in post-second world war Britain as they cook up a plan to make money. It was longlisted for the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction, 2015.
Chris White, Waterstones fiction buyer, said: “In 2015 Waterstones Book Club introduced the book reading public to the likes of Laline Paull’s The Bees, Timur Vermes’s Look Who’s Back and Curtain Call by Anthony Quinn, not to mention the phenomenal bestsellers Elizabeth is Missing and The Miniaturist. We’re kicking off 2016 with a list of pure reading pleasure. All life is here and everybody will find something to surprise and delight them. Brighten up a dull January with one of these literary firecrackers.”
Waterstones Book Club aims to bring together the best fiction paperbacks of the year, showcasing a blend of new and established writers across a range of genres and subjects.
