The Nature of Fragile Things by Susan Meissner – ebook
I LOVED Susan Meissner’s book As Bright as Heaven. This is her newest book and follows three women during the San Francisco earthquake of 1906. (Full review here)



Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson – ebook
If you’ve been here a while, you know I love a good young adult book and this one features a private school, an unsolved kidnapping, and a teenage true-crime aficionado and new student who is determined to crack the case. Sign me up.


Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don’t Know by Adam Grant – ebook
I read and LOVED Adam Grant’s book, Originals a few years ago and this book is equally good – he’s just so good at writing the kinds of books that you can’t stop thinking about. Like Originals, it’s full of fascinating stories and terrific insights, and I truly feel like every parent, business owner, teacher, and . . .okay, human, should read this one. It’s one I’ll be returning to again and again because it’s just so insightful!

The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters by Priya Parker – ebook
This is one of the 2022 Everyday Reading Book Club picks and I can’t wait to discuss it later this year! If you need some inspiration of hosting, getting people together, or meeting up with new and old friends, this book is for you.


Girl in the Blue Coat by Monica Hesse – ebook
A WWII book, but this one a YA. It takes place in Amsterdam and it was phenomenal. It was just such an exhilarating read from the first page to the last. Quick, intense, and well-written, I need more books like this in my life (Full review here).



Book cover for Wolf Hollow by Lauren Wolk with featured deal bannerWolf Hollow by Lauren Wolk – audiobook
This one is set in World War II, with the focus on Annabelle who lives in a small town in Pennsylvania. The audio version of Wolf Hollow is terrific, and listening to it was a completely immersive experience – I felt like I was right there in the hills of Pennsylvania, wondering who was at fault and who to trust. I listened to the whole thing in two days – it was SO good.

My Father's Dragon by Ruth Stiles GannettMy Father’s Dragon by Ruth Stiles Gannett – audiobook
I have to admit this one is not my favorite (I didn’t read it until I read it aloud to Ella and I found it SO PAINFULLY BORING), but I’m including it here because it’s a total classic and many many people are rabid fans.


The Downstairs Girl by Stacey LeeThe Downstairs Girl by Stacey Lee – audiobook
I love a good young adult historical fiction novel and this one from the 2020 Summer Reading Guide did not disappoint. Set in Atlanta in the late 1800s, this was a fascinating peek at Jim Crow laws and the rising tide of suffragism all wrapped up into a fascinating family drama. (Full review here)
