Posted by Cybil on March 14, 2018
As the days get longer and vacations beckon, it's time to stock up on some great new paperbacks! We combed through our data to find the best of the new releases. From a gritty police drama, to the Goodreads Choice Award winner for history, to a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, there are books here to match your many reading moods!

In order to make this list, every new paperback release below has to have at least a four-star rating from the Goodreads community. That means some hot new paperback releases, including Lincoln in the Bardo (which has an average rating of 3.85 stars), Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows (a popular bookclub pick with a 3.84 rating), and Exit West (with a 3.83 rating) didn't make the cut for this roundup, but are available for your beach bag now.
