What to read in October


What to read in October? Alice Hoffman, Jojo Moyes, Ann Patchett and Elin Hilderbrand all have new book releases. Oprah’s new book selection, The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates is available as is Zadie Smith’s collection of short stories titled Grand Union. If you enjoyed reading The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris, her new latest novel, Cilka’s Journey, is also about WWII. So many choices.

What to Read in May

There are some great reads to consider this month. I’ve started the Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters by Balli Kaur Jaswal about three Punjabi sisters who embark on a pilgrimage to their homeland to lay their mother to rest and can’t wait to dive into The Valedictorian of Being Dead by Heather B. Armstrong. For history lovers, historian David McCullough has written Pioneers, a thorough look into the settlers of the Northwest Territory. Something for everyone!

What to Read in April

So many good books this month. I’m especially looking forward to Ruth Reichl’s Save Me the Plums. Her writing is fantastic and I loved her previous memoirs. In this book she shares her time as editor in chief at Gourmet Magazine. Enjoy!

What to Read in January 2019

Happy New Year! I hope it was relaxing and filled with good cheer.

What are your reading goals for 2019? It can be fun to set a reading goal for the year. At the very least, keep track of what you read. You may be surprised at the end of the year how many books you have read.
