cressWe’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending January 19, 2014–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.

(Debuted at #6 in Hardcover Fiction) One More Thing: Stories & Other Stories by B.J. Novak: “Finding inspiration in questions from the nature of perfection to the icing on carrot cake, One More Thing has at its heart the most human of phenomena: love, fear, hope, ambition, and the inner stirring for the one elusive element just that might make a person complete.” (February 2014)

(Debuted at #7 in Children’s Fiction Series) The Lunar Chronicles: Cress by Marissa Meyer: “In this third book in Marissa Meyer’s bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and prevent her army from invading Earth. Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl trapped on a satellite since childhood who’s only ever had her netscreens as company. ” (February 2014)

(Debuted at #9 in Hardcover Nonfiction) Glitter and Glue by Kelly Corrigan: “This is a book about the difference between travel and life experience, stepping out and stepping up, fathers and mothers. But mostly it’s about who you admire and why, and how that changes over time.” (February 2014)
