At Home in Mitford

At Home in Mitford

This is the first book in the bestselling Mitford series, and the one that made so many readers fall in love with Father Tim and the town of Mitford. I resisted Mitford for a long time because the premise sounded cheesy. And sure, it would be easy for this story to veer into sappy territory—if it wasn't extremely well done. A story about ordinary lives, (mostly) lovable characters, and the small drama of the everyday. Charming, heartwarming, purely enjoyable. More info →

The Mysterious Benedict Society (Book 1)

The Mysterious Benedict Society (Book 1)

File this under Series Kids Love (And Their Parents Do Too). Four unique orphaned children come together through a series of tests, for which they found an advertisement in the newspaper offering "Are you a gifted child looking for special opportunities?" Scores of children respond to this newspaper ad, but only four are chosen to save the world. The circumstances of the tests are quite mysterious, and they lead the children to come under the guidance of Mr. Benedict, a strange and fascinating man who offers them a part in a most important mission: saving the world from a dark and dangerous man and his sinister plan. The children are each brilliant in their own right and the adventures they embark on are full of danger, nefarious villains, and thought-provoking puzzles. Smart and fun and a thoroughly good read, for children (and adults) who love the work of Lemony Snicket. More info →

Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader

If you’re crazy about reading, you'll recognize yourself on the pages of this essay collection.

Smart, interesting, and laugh-out-loud funny. More info →

After Alice

After Alice

Libro.fm is running a sale on several titles this month. No membership required for most sale prices, including this one. The ebook is ALSO on sale. From the publisher: "From the multi-million-copy bestselling author of Wicked comes a magical new twist on Lewis Carroll's beloved classic, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. When Alice toppled down the rabbit-hole 150 years ago, she found a Wonderland as rife with inconsistent rules and abrasive egos as the world she left behind. But what of that world? How did 1860s Oxford react to Alice's disappearance? In After Alice, Gregory Maguire turns his dazzling imagination to the question of underworlds, undergrounds, underpinnings—and understandings old and new, offering an inventive spin on Carroll's enduring tale. Ada, a friend of Alice's mentioned briefly in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, is off to visit her friend, but arrives a moment too late—and tumbles down the rabbit-hole herself. If Eurydice can ever be returned to the arms of Orpheus, or Lazarus can be raised from the tomb, perhaps Alice can be returned to life. Either way, everything that happens next is 'After Alice.'"

The Cove

The Cove

Libro.fm is running a sale on several titles this month. No membership required for most sale prices, including this one. The ebook is ALSO on sale. From the publisher: "Deep in the rugged Appalachians of North Carolina lies the cove, a dark, forbidding place where spirits and fetches wander, and even the light fears to travel. Or so the townsfolk of Mars Hill believe–just as they know that Laurel Shelton, the lonely young woman who lives within its shadows, is a witch. Alone except for her brother, Hank, newly returned from the trenches of France, she aches for her life to begin. Then it happens–a stranger appears, carrying nothing but a beautiful silver flute and a note explaining that his name is Walter, he is mute, and is bound for New York. Laurel finds him in the woods, nearly stung to death by yellow jackets, and nurses him back to health. As the days pass, Walter slips easily into life in the cove and into Laurel's heart, bringing her the only real happiness she has ever known. But Walter harbors a secret that could destroy everything–and danger is closer than they know." More info →

I very much enjoyed this book, which explores: what listening really is (it's probably not what you think), why it's worth doing, and why it's so terribly important in a culture that never stops talking. Relatable and wise. More info →

Picnic at Hanging Rock

Picnic at Hanging Rock

If you're in the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club, you'll rejoice with me to see this on sale. A Classic that Is Not Remotely Boring. In this short Australian classic, a group of girls from the Appleyard College for Young Ladies venture out for a picnic at Hanging Rock on a beautiful afternoon. Three of the girls set out for a hike, and are never seen again. As I was reading this short novel, it strongly reminded me of something I'd read before, but I couldn't figure out WHAT. I finally realized it wasn't a book at all—it was the TV show Lost! (If that's not a recommendation, I don't know what is.) More info →

The intensity of their love reveals Beryl’s truest self and her fate: to fly." More info →

That Kind of Mother

Libro.fm is running a sale on several titles this month. No membership required for most sale prices, including this one. The ebook is ALSO on sale. From the 2018 Summer Reading Guide, a sensitive and sharply observed novel about parenthood, race, adoption. There's a recurring Princess Diana motif in the book and I love that.

Nurse Priscilla is the only person who soothes her anxieties, so much so that Rebecca persuades her to quit her job at the hospital to become her nanny. Rebecca is white; Priscilla is black—and their relationship opens Rebecca's eyes to the comfortable truths of her own privilege. A few years later Priscilla's own pregnancy ends in tragedy, and Rebecca steps forward to adopt Priscilla's black baby. Her husband is baffled: is Rebecca really prepared for the realities of being a white woman with a black son? Alam probes how far love and good intentions can go. More info →
