Daisy Jones & the Six

Taylor Jenkins Reid

$27.00 $24.84

Half of us listened and half read the hardback. All of us asked the question at some point during the read, "Am I remembering wrong or was this a real band?"

Sugar Run

Mesha Maren

$26.95

Not a happy read but a well penned glimpse into the challenges of life in Appalachia went you don't fit in.

Normal People

Sally Rooney

$26.00 $23.92

Read it before you watch it on Hulu!

Longbourn

Jo Baker

$16.95 $15.59

I love books that drench you in details of what it was like to live in historic times - that plus the Pride & Prejudice connection makes for a winner

Unsheltered

Barbara Kingsolver

$29.99 $27.59

My new favorite Barbara Kingsolver (previous was The Poisonwood Bible).

Charlotte Walsh Likes to Win

Jo Piazza

$26.00

A good jumping off point to talk about the current political landscape as well as work/life balance for women

The Wife

Meg Wolitzer

$16.00 $14.72

Sometimes we like to read the book and watch the movie. This was a good one for that!

An American Marriage (Oprah's Book Club)

Tayari Jones

$16.95 $15.59

Beautifully written, wrenching, lots to discuss

Little Fires Everywhere

Celeste Ng

$17.00 $15.64

Discussions of class in America and what it means to be a good parent

The Leavers

Lisa Ko

$15.95 $14.67

The shifting POVs of this book add to the discussability. Lots of strong opinions about mothers' choices in this one.

Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood

Trevor Noah

$18.00 $16.56

Eye opening and hilarious. Best consumed with his HBO special!

This Is How It Always Is

Laurie Frankel

$16.99 $15.63

Huge discussions about parenting and choices ensued...

The Story of Land and Sea

Katy Simpson Smith

$15.99

A beautiful book you've probably never heard of. So glad author Taylor Brown recommended this to us.

The Almost Sisters

Joshilyn Jackson

$15.99 $14.71

I'll read anything Joshilyn Jackson writes but this was particularly fun to talk about. I especially loved how Jackson crawl into the mind of a graphic novel artist.

To the Bright Edge of the World

Eowyn Ivey

$16.99 $15.63

The question is: will this make you want to go to Alaska? Or stay far, far away? Either way, read this book! Also, her first novel, The Snow Child.

The Mothers

Brit Bennett

$16.00 $14.72

Heartbreaking, but not unnecessarily so.

The Underground Railroad

Colson Whitehead

$27.95 $25.71

So much to talk about. Whitehead takes you by the hand and drags you through an ugly history with sly irreverence.

Commonwealth

Ann Patchett

$16.99 $15.63

Such good conversations about siblings

Fallen Land

Taylor Brown

$15.99
