Millions of new books come into the scene every year.
Thousands of new releases hit the bookstore’s shelves.
Hundreds of new authors rise to compete in the literary world.
But truth be told, most will never achieve great fame and fortune.
As a result, a lot of the great writers go unnoticed. It is a fact that there are so many magnificent writers that people do not know about.
And they are in REAL masters of the language with incredible stories to tell.

We’re sure these reads will make you feel something.
Whether it’s joy or hopeless despair, regardless of the mood you’re in, these titles will hold you hostage by the beautiful written word.
Today a Woman Went Mad in the Supermarket by Hilma Wolitzer:
If you’re worrying about being too old, as the writer Hilma is older than 60 years, then don’t even think of missing it. In fact, take note that Hilma Wolitzer wrote her first story at 36 and published her first novel in her early 40s. Since then she has been working on and publishing a bookshelf of nine novels and one craft book.
She is here in the list because she couldn’t get the attention she deserved. A self-proclaimed “late-blooming novelist,” Wolitzer also created a novelist— Meg Wolitzer.
This collection also includes her very first published story, and a new one “The Great Escape” too. The book has kept the pandemic as its main frame. In real life, Wolitzer recovered from the illness, but her husband did not. The story will probably leave you in tears and will definitely crack your heart in multiple ways.
Jersig by J.B. Whitehouse:
This book got the highlight and the reason is its main character opposes some of the great literary “identity seekers” of the old time. The narrator, “Q”, is a young man of curiosity but limited avenues as to how to escape his ordinary life. He is confused until he gets a chance to brush with Jersig. Jerig is a wealthy and successful businessman who introduces Q to an entirely new (and not entirely promising) way of life. The novel is much of a classic tale of identity and profound introspection, conveyed by a creative and intelligent new voice.
The Audacity of Sara Grayson by Joani Elliott:
What happens when your mother’s dying wish becomes your worst nightmare? That’s the basis of this debut novel from Joani Elliott, who melds genres in a fascinating way. Our protagonist, Sara Grayson, is a 32-year-old greeting card writer with few other literary ambitions. But that changes when Sara learns that her recently deceased mother — a world-famous author of suspense novels — wanted Sara to complete the final book in her bestselling series. In her attempts to fill her mother’s shoes, Sara stumbles upon family secrets she was never meant to find… secrets that threaten both the book she’s trying to create andher mother’s entire legacy.
Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin:
After years apart, Sam Masur spots Sadie Green—a childhood friend turned nemesis, then stranger—at a Cambridge, Massachusetts, subway station. A brief conversation spawns what becomes the reunion and working relationship of a lifetime, in the cutthroat, ever-changing world of video game design. You don’t have to be a gamer to appreciate the pulsing heart of this best-seller: In a story spanning three decades and references from Oregon Trail to Macbeth, Gabrielle Zevlin has written a modern, definitive story about work, love, and friends for whom you’d do and risk everything.
The Verifiers by Jane Pek:
After reading the book, you’d be questioning yourself: what kind of person would want to work at an online dating detective agency?
And you’ll get your answer right away. Someone who is a hopeless romantic, or an ideal cynic. Twenty-five-year-old Claudia Lin, the lead character of this funny and touching modern detective story, is a little bit of both – forever alone and an overthinker. Her traditional Chinese mother doesn’t know her real job and thinks she works at a finance firm.
When one of her agency’s clients turns up dead, Claudia takes the responsibility to investigate, but quickly gets in over her head.
The Candy House by Jennifer Egan:
In an alternate version of our current reality, we’ll get to know about a tech giant Mandala’s Own Your Unconscious platform. It is a service that allows users access to every memory they or any other member has ever had. Basically, not so practical thing, but in the story, it is the latest craze.
Not everyone is captivated by this new technology, but those who have been caught in, the consequences are just beginning to make themselves known. More or less like a “sibling novel” to her celebrated book, A Visit from the Goon Squad, Jennifer Egan’s hotly anticipated follow-up talks about invisible portals, alternate dimensions, and humanity’s desperate search for connection.
Book Lovers by Emily Henry:
She’s another a little old author, but again, got attention when her recent book got published. Emily Henry wrote Beach Read and People We Meet on Vacation. Now she returns with another un-putdown-able romance in Book Lovers.
It is the story of two publishing industry rivals struggling together over the course of one month in a small North Carolina town. As agent Nora and editor Charlie repeatedly cross paths, they just may come to see themselves as main characters of the same story, and that’s exciting to read more.
