"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."

Tough questions! It is always hard for me to choose a best book of the year. I love so many but for different reasons. I guess I will have to go with Thirteen reasons Why as that one just sticks with me (although I see that Harlan Coben on your post and I havent read that one yet but can not wait!)

That being said, I think the Harlan Coben book would be the one that I would order.
