I am going to suggest 2 books I have not read, but that look good to me.

Mr. Mercedes Stephen King (first of a trilogy) 2015
Salt to the Sea Ruta Sepetys (2017)

I would like to suggest that the titles we choose are more than 8 months old, otherwise we will have a hard time getting copies from our local libraries.

Excellent, I will add those to the list. Thank you. Please add them to the question on your profile too, if you like.

At least 8 months old is a great thought. I will add it onto the profile question.
