1. "Love & Life: Tough-Love Advice on: Dating, Marriage, Child Rearing, Values, Faith, Resilience," by Dr. Laura Schlessinger (Humanix Books)
The beloved counselor and veteran radio host, long feted as America's most trusted therapist, is back with a brand-new collection of plainspoken, common-sense advice about love, sex, parenting, marriage, divorce, dating, morality, and loss. A staple of talk radio for more than 40 years, Dr. Laura doles out timely, feet-on-the-ground guidance for our increasingly complicated lives. And she reveals, for the first time, the only New Year's resolution you need to kick start 2020. (Non-fiction)
2. "Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us," by Donald Trump Jr. (Center Street)
The president's oldest son takes no prisoners in this candid, no-hold-barred narrative in which he exposes "all the tricks that the left uses to smear conservatives" and discusses "the importance of fighting back and standing up for what you believe in." Whether you agree with him or not, there is no denying Don Jr. is a powerful new voice in conservative America, and an unapologetic chip off the old block. (Non-fiction)
3. "Blue Moon: A Jack Reacher Novel," by Lee Child (Delacorte)
Trouble has dogged Jack Reacher – an ex-military cop endlessly roaming the nation in search of himself – for more than two decades. And there is plenty more of it in "Blue Moon," Lee Child's 24th installment in the wildly popular Reacher series. This time, his good deed – helping an elderly couple who have made a few well-meaning mistakes – turns against him when he suddenly finds himself in the middle of a brutal turf war between rival Ukrainian and Albanian gangs. (Fiction)
4. "The Starless Sea: A Novel" by Erin Morgenstern (Doubleday)
As fans of her runaway 2012 bestseller "The Night Circus" know, Morgenstern has the ability to transport readers into spellbinding, dreamlike worlds that are 100% believable – and completely unforgettable. In "The Starless Sea," she tells the story of a Vermont graduate student whose discovery of an unusual storybook leads him to a strange masquerade party in New York City and an ancient library hidden far below the surface of the earth – intoxicating worlds of romance and mystery. Escapism par excellence. (Fiction)
5. "With All Due Respect: Defending America with Grit and Grace," by Nikki R. Haley (St. Martin's Press)
America's former Ambassador to the United Nations, ex-South Carolina governor, and rising Republican star offers her fascinating perspective on major national and international matters, as well as providing a gripping, behind-the-scenes account of her tenure in the Trump administration. "With All Due Respect" leaves little doubt Haley has a bright future in Washington. (Non-fiction)
