Our Best Reads of 2019

by Laura Landon on 2020-01-08T14:00:00-04:00 | Comments

With the end of 2019 and the dawn of a new decade, we asked staff and librarians about the best books they've read within the past year. Here are some of their recommendations. You can find all of them in the library book stacks, through Novanet, or in the New Brunswick Public Library system (via ILL or your public library card). Our top picks cover a mix of fiction and non-fiction, and a range of publishing dates. They all have one thing in common: they're fabulous and memorable reads.
