The last title on our list was also the last to be published: The Mister was released in April and quickly worked its way up the charts. The No. 1 New York Times bestseller is the first new work from E. L. James since the last installment of her wildly successful Fifty Shades trilogy hit bookstores. The Mister follows Maxim Trevelyan, a rich playboy who suddenly inherits his family’s estates, and Alessia Demachi, a mysterious woman Maxim desperately wants to get to know. “The book’s belief in the infinitely transformative power of love will hit the sweet spot for readers looking to be swept away,” writes Booklist.
