By Maryann Yin 

Lust & Love (GalleyCat)We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending April 3, 2016–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.

(Debuted at #3 in Hardcover Fiction) Journey to Munich: A Maisie Dobbs Novel by Jacqueline Winspear: “It’s early 1938, and Maisie Dobbs is back in England. On a fine yet chilly morning, as she walks towards Fitzroy Square—a place of many memories—she is intercepted by Brian Huntley and Robert MacFarlane of the Secret Service. The German government has agreed to release a British subject from prison, but only if he is handed over to a family member. Because the man’s wife is bedridden and his daughter has been killed in an accident, the Secret Service wants Maisie—who bears a striking resemblance to the daughter—to retrieve the man from Dachau, on the outskirts of Munich.” (March 2016)

(Debuted at #8 in Hardcover Nonfiction) Lust & Wonder: A Memoir by Augusten Burroughs: “In chronicling the development and demise of the different relationships he’s had while living in New York, Augusten Burroughs examines what it means to be in love, what it means to be in lust, and what it means to be figuring it all out.” (March 2016)

(Debuted at #15 in Children’s Illustrated) Let’s Play! by Hervé Tullet: “Connecting not only to the mind but also to the heart, this dot expresses an extraordinary sense of humor, fear, joy, and more as it pushes, lurches, wiggles, and slides its way through—and even off!—the pages of this glorious companion to Press Here and Mix It Up!” (March 2016)
