The Light We Carry
Overcoming in Uncertain Times
“Michelle Obama is back with more words of wisdom, pillars of humility, and just simply Michelle. The Light We Carry is an uplighting book that will help you deal with the emotions and isolation that we have had to deal with during and after the pandemic. But more than that, she has compiled questions that she has been asked again and again, and acknowledges each with personal stories, anecdotes, wisdom, and love. This book feel like you are sitting down with an old friend when you have had a bad day and and just need some love and a hot drink.”Gretchen, Fiction Addiction
Lessons in Chemistry
“Talented scientist Elizabeth Zott is thwarted at every turn in the male-dominated science world of the 1950s. But Elizabeth will not let anything stop her. Armed with a Number Two pencil piercing her bun, she is determined to complete her research project and enlighten women about the importance of science (even if it appears to be a cooking show for housewives). Equal parts charming and wise, Bonnie Garmus’s novel is making many more best-of lists than mine and features the best dog character since Winn Dixie.”Sarah, A Great Good Place for Books
I'm Glad My Mom Died
If you enjoyed Mean Baby, then you’ll love I'm Glad My Mom Died.
“There is something about listening to a memoir narrated by the person who wrote it that makes one’s experience feel complete. McCurdy’s writing 'voice' and actual one give dry humor and a low folksy charm while describing truly harrowing abuses from her mother. She doesn’t hold anything back whether it’s her time on set on iCarly to her first sexual experience to the description of her vomit after a binge and purge. If you wanted a fun celebrity tell-all…this ain’t it. This is a survivor’s story.”Lissa, Book Club

Shelby Van Pelt's debut novel is funny, touching, and ultimately life-affirming.”Jeffrey, Riverstone Books

Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow
“Gabrielle Zevin's Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow is beautiful in every way. The character dynamics, the narrative structure, and even the cover design made me fall in love with this book. The story takes place over three decades and follows the friendship between Sam and Sadie. While it is told mostly linear, there are still several points where the reader gets a glimpse into the future that serves as a reminder of the ever changing nature of our relationships. I listened to this as an audiobook and one thing that stood out to me (about the audio production specifically) was the narrator change for Marx's POV. This shift made Part VII even more emotional as a turning point in the novel. It was a great choice. Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow is a testament to the ebb and flow of our lives. All we can do is try to navigate the storm together. ”Emma, Books Inc.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
If you enjoyed The Lions of Fifth Avenue, then you’ll love The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo.
“What a great read! Perfect balance of pure gossip and Hollywood drama with a gut-wrenching love story all told from the perspective of a woman who is so flawed and so endearing. This book went somewhere that was so surprising and yet made so much sense. It turns all preconceived notions of Hollywood on their head and certainly makes you question anything you've read in tabloids and online. A must-read! I just re-read this for my book club almost 3.5 years after the first time (and the release date). Damn, it is still an engrossing read. The audiobook was narrated by three faves: Alma Cuervo (the PERFECT EVELYN! STUNNING!), Robin Miles (who is amazing), and Julia Whelan (genius idea to give a different voice to all the celebrity rags and Whelan's voice was perfect for it).”Kimi, Buttonwood Books and Toys

“This is an incredibly powerful story that I think everyone should read. Told from the perspective of two different characters, who despite being at different stages in their lives, are trying to figure out who they are. It examines the traumas that we experience in life, how we process those (or don't), and how they shape us. It looks at who we know ourselves to be, how we honor that (or don't), and the strength it takes to truly be yourself. The people that read the two different narrators are perfectly cast, and really add to the impact and experience of the story for the listener. I don't think that it is possible to read this book and not come away changed in the best ways. I believe that if everyone read this, the world would be a much more empathetic place.”Allie, Oblong Books
A Brief History of Humankind
“I don't own many books. I read books and give them away. However, I will NOT be giving away my copy of Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind. It's a keeper! Sapiens was an intense read for me. I found myself taking breaks every dozen pages or so. Not because I was bored - just the opposite. I needed time to let the author's perspective on the history of our species (you, me, us!) sink in. Yuval Noah Harari is irreverent at times and makes mind-blowing assertions in his book. You may not agree with all of his theories, but what he claims will make you see yourself as the animal you are in a refreshing new light. It's even possible that after you read Sapiens your view of the human condition will have shifted dramatically. Superbly translated from the original Hebrew into English by the author himself, Sapiens is accessible to readers of all types of non-fiction and fiction alike.”Catherine, The Bookloft
