This Spring’s Best Bets [SHOWING SLIDE 8 OF 9]

Some of the books we’re most excited about this spring include a World War II novel that focuses on the innate goodness of its major characters; a modern retelling of “Snow White”; and a piercing, empathetic new novel by the author of The Descendants (which became the hit George Clooney movie) about parenthood and unfathomable heartbreak that manages to bring humor and hope to her characters. Not all of the books on this week’s list are in stores or available online just yet (we cite the publication date of every book we review at the bottom of that book’s review page), but they are all worth diving into.
