We've got you covered with the buzziest new releases of the day. To create our list, we focused on the books Goodreads members can't wait to read , which we measure by how many times a book has been added to Want to Read shelves.

From the ballroom of the Old Swan Hotel where Agatha Christie famously went missing for 11 days in the s which hosted panels of internationally renowned authors, to the tents outside serving food, drink and books, to the lively conversations buzzing all over the grounds, to the readers dotted all over the sun-lit lawn, hunched over their ill-gotten gains as though any interruption might be rewarded with a death stare — it was all about the books.
Every good festival has sideshows, and Harrogate was awash with publisher parties and book signings, reader competitions, forensic investigations, and even a table quiz worthy of a criminal mastermind.

As was pointed out by more than one author over the course of the festival, we are all by nature voyeurs, with an insatiable curiosity for other human beings. In real life, true stories have the power to do harm; but great fiction takes us back, as close as we can bear, to the monsters under the beds of our childhoods. We like to be frightened, but only within our control.
