Untamed

Glennon Doyle

I've loved Glennon Melton Doyle for years and saw her in person several years back. Written as a collection of essays, Untamed is the insightful, witty and compelling writing that you've come to expect.

The Giver of Stars

Jojo Moyes

$28.00 $25.76

I've heard this book is getting ready to be made into a movie and is endorsed by Reese Witherspoon! The story of five women during The Depression, Moyes continues to tug at heart strings by building characters that are truly compelling in stories that are emotional and well-told.

The Vanishing Half

Brit Bennett

$27.00 $24.84

Britt Bennett's second book...I loved The Mothers and can't wait to dig into this one! What can you expect when one twin decides to disappear and pass for white in order to marry the man she loves? What happens when these sisters are brought back together years later by their daughters? If you read and loved The Mothers...don't miss this one!

Hamnet

Maggie O'Farrell

$26.95 $24.79

Maggie O'Farrell is my favorite. I love This Must Be the Place because the characters were so darn believable, flawed and lovable. This story is about The Bard himself (though he is never named in the story) and takes us through an imagined life for his son and the rest of his family. I can't wait to see what O'Farrell does with THESE characters!

In Five Years

Rebecca Serle

$27.00 $24.84

Dannie wakes up in a life 5 years beyond current day and everything is different. She spends only one hour in that time but it impacts her unimaginably. The premise for this story has me waiting with bated breath to dive in!

Darius the Great Is Not Okay

Adib Khorram

$10.99 $10.11

I've been meaning to read this book forever! There's actually already a sequel so I need to hop to it! Darius is a bit of a social misfit and travels to Iran (from his home in France) with his family. He suffers from clinical depression and is not convinced that this move is going to go well. What happens when he makes a friend that changes everything? This is a YA title that many adults have really loved!
