The Girls – Emma Cline

The Girls is a coming of age story line one other. Set on the backdrop of the Manson murders, don’t let that scare you off. The focus & power of the book comes more from the main character, Evie. She incubuses all of the awkwardness, pain and excitement of being a 14 year old girl, and the tragic effects that innocence can have in the wrong hands.

Cork Dork – Bianca Bosker

Wine is one of my favorite indulgences, and this book made me love it even more. Bianca Bosker gave herself the near impossible goal of passing the sommelier exams, and she gave herself one year to do it. This book is hilarious, illuminating and delicious. Cheers!

Sweetbitter – Stephanie Danler

Anyone would enjoy this book with its humor, compelling characters & beautiful prose. But those who have spent time “behind the apron” will especially appreciate its spot-on image of the hectic world of service industry life. Intoxicating & marvelous!

All the Light We Cannot See – Anthony Doerr

You’ll love the spunk of twelve-year-old Marie-Laure, a blind girl who is relocated from Paris to the walled coastal city of St. Malo, where she and her father must guard a prized gem, while deceiving their Nazi overseers.

Just out in paperback after three years as a hardcober bestseller. You won’t want to miss reading it!
