Pride, Prejudice, And Other Flavors A Novel By Sonali Dev
by Sonali Dev

View in Library Catalog

Don't read it on an empty stomach, because rapturous descriptions of food are at every turn. A light, cute, multicultural read, with definite winks at Jane Austen.

Things We Have in Common
by Tasha Kavanagh

A disturbing, unreliable narrator makes poor decisions, and the book just keep spiraling. The book created such a sense of discomfort for me.

I'm really not a huge science fiction fan, but I am really enjoying the Old Man's War series by John Scalzi. Highly readable.

Where'd You Go Bernadette

This book was recommended to me by a close friend. She read it all the way back in 2015, but it's still the first book she suggests when someone is looking for a summer read. I had high hopes for it, but it unfortunately did not deliver in the ways I had wanted.

The book had lots of twists and turns. The story was fun and entertaining, with several surprising and funny moments.

Clock Dance
by Anne Tyler

View in Library Catalog

A relatable story about being uncertain of your roles and responsibilities within your family, written rather realistically so you'll find yourself pairing the characters to individuals within your own family. Perfect for mothers who fear they do too much, do too little, or maybe should be doing something entirely different. Not a five-star book, though, due to an abrupt ending-- but I'll say no more about the ending to avoid spoilers!

A searing American classic. Haunting and powerful.

City Of Secrets By Stewart O'nan

Unexpected topic for this author. Beautiful prose. A novel set in post WWII Jerusalem. Follows the lives of Jewish resistance workers, who struggle in Palestine to create a safe homeland for Jewish immigrants. Is a bit hard to follow at times, but comes together by the end of the book. Stewart O'Nan is a marvelous writer, and this book does not disappoint.
