Good Morning America has chosen Age of Vice by Deepti Kapoor (Riverhead Books) as its January Book Club pick. GMA wrote: "The story transports readers into modern-day India, following the stories of three very different but intersecting lives: a gangster family's young chauffeur, a son who desperately wants to break from the chain of violence and a young female journalist.
"Age of Vice dives deep into themes of excess, crime, betrayal, vengeance, forbidden love and class struggle, shifting between the extravagant lifestyles of the mega-rich and heartbreaking poverty."
Reese's Book Club has selected The House in the Pines by Ana Reyes (Dutton) as its January pick. Reese Witherspoon said, "This is an absolute, can't-put-it-down thriller that follows Maya who's trying to prove once and for all that her best friend was murdered years ago by her then boyfriend, Frank. Her best friend and boyfriend at the time--Frank--were talking and then her best friend just falls down dead. As Maya digs further into Frank's past and present she finds a string of similar mysterious deaths. It's truly a wild ride that had me flying through chapter after chapter."
