The Turn of the Key

Ruth Ware

$16.99 $15.63

I've started this one and I'm intrigued by the premise. The protagonist has been hired as a nanny at a super high-end home in the country...but what secrets await inside?

Redhead by the Side of the Road

Anne Tyler

$26.95 $24.79

Everybody loves a good Anne Tyler novel...and this one promises to deliver. The protagonist is a man who keeps his life in careful order until two things happen that blow the doors off of it. How will he recover and what will happen to change him forever?

The Goldfinch

Donna Tartt

$10.99 $10.11

This is a HUGE novel that I've been meanin to read forever. I know there's lots of disagreement between those who love and hate it but sometimes, that's just why you've got to read it for yourself! I'm only about 10 pages in but can't wait to find out what happens to this young man who is left alone when his mother is killed. And what does a Goldfinch have to do with it? :)

Crazy Rich Asians

Kevin Kwan

$16.00 $14.72

I've just started this book and it's already delightful...the colorful portrayal of several Asian sisters in Singapore and what the protagonist, Rachel, doesn't know about her new life is definitely drawing me in.

Summer of '69

Elin Hilderbrand

$16.99 $15.63

Two secrets: I've never read Elin Hildebrand before and I love the 60's! Set in 1969, this book is replete with historical references and to color the story of the Levin family in Nantucket!

The Water Dancer

Ta-Nehisi Coates

$28.00 $25.76

A little bit historical, a little bit heartbreaking, a little bit mysterious...completely enthralling. This is the first Coates novel I will ever have finished. Many think I should have started with Between the World and Me but I'm happy right where I am!

Nine Perfect Strangers

Liane Moriarty

$17.99 $16.55

Nine people gather at a health resort and we get to meet them, hear their stories and see what ensues. Absolutely!

Little Fires Everywhere

Celeste Ng

$17.00 $15.64

I got to meet Celeste Ng a couple of years ago and she is delightful. I'm enjoying Little Fires Everywhere even more for that fact. Set in my home state of Ohio, Little Fires explores the relationship between two families and expounds upon motherhood, being a teenager and the obsession to be perfect.

The Pull of the Stars

Emma Donoghue

$28.00 $25.76

I loved Room. If you did too (or even if you've never read it,) check out Donoghue's latest novel, The Pull of the Stars. Set in a maternity ward in Ireland in the early 1900s, I'm thoroughly enjoying see what happens to the protagonist when two characters (a man on the run and local volunteer) come into her life and turn her world (personally and professionally) upside down!

Where the Crawdads Sing

Delia Owens

$26.00 $23.92

This book has gotten so much hype that I was almost afraid to give it a try. So far, however, it's lived up to the praises that it earned! The story of a 'Marsh Girl' who has been abandoned on the NC coast, this book will draw a picture of Kya Clark's world that you can see, hear and feel. Lush and vivid, you will hurt for Kya and cheer for her triumphs.
