February's new releases are incredible says +Bustle  and we'd have to agree. Single, Carefree, Mellow by Katherine Heiny and A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler make the list. 
I know I said this last month, but I’M SERIOUS THIS TIME: February’s new titles are incredible. Narrowing this slew of awesome reads down to this list of 11 was, as my editor astutely stated, akin to choosing a favorite child. We take our books very seriously here. Because February

"In 1915, after working as a page at Doubleday and with publisher Mitchell Kennerley, Alfred A. Knopf accepted a $5,000 advance from his father to begin an eponymous publisher. The company’s first office was located in New York’s Candler Building, on West 42nd Street, and in addition to Knopf himself, its employees included two administrative staffers and an editorial assistant named Blanche Wolfe, Knopf’s fiancée.
Today, Knopf is one of the most venerable literary publishers in the country. In its 100-year history, the company, which is now part of Penguin Random House, has had only three people at the helm—Knopf himself, Robert Gottlieb, and current editor-in-chief Sonny Mehta. "

Valentine's Day has come and gone, but it's not to late to delve into an 'it's complicated' affair. Here are some 12 reads about being in love, like, or otherwise!
Let's face it, there's nothing straightforward about being in love, in like, or otherwise. This Valentine's Day, put your drama on the back burner and enjoy these literary entanglements.
