New Favorites
Fiction



Every week the team here at Powell's gathers to put newly released titles to the test, sending them through a brutal gauntlet of criticism, not unlike something you might see on Survivor: Beirut. After hours of heated discussions over everything from plot structure to cover art (please, no feet), those with only the most merit rise to the top and are deemed New Favorites. And then we discount them 30%. Happy browsing!

There are 12 books in this aisle.
