The Lost Daughter

The Lost Daughter

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. When we talked with author Jennifer Robson last summer for the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club, she recommended Gill Paul as a talented writer who is well known in the UK, but who should be better known here in the States. From the publisher: "If you loved I Was Anastasia by Ariel Lawhon you won't want to miss this novel about her sister, Grand Duchess Maria. What really happened to this lost Romanov daughter? A new novel perfect for anyone curious about Anastasia, Maria, and the other lost Romanov daughters, by the author of The Secret Wife." More info →

Home Comforts

Home Comforts

I adore this book, and it's never sold for less than this. This is the best book you've never heard of on housekeeping. Mendelson's enthusiasm for housekeeping is delightfully contagious and occasionally veers in unexpected directions: I still regularly pull the book off the shelf when I'm not sure how best to tackle a household task and read it just for fun every once in a while.

Second Nature: A Gardener’s Education

Second Nature: A Gardener’s Education

I enjoy Pollan's writing, including this one. From the publisher: "With chapters ranging from a reconsideration of the Great American Lawn and a dispatch from one man's war with a woodchuck to reflections on the sexual politics of roses, Pollan captures the rhythms of our everyday engagement with the outdoors in all its glory and exasperation."

Code Name Verity

Code Name Verity

I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Marketed as YA, but a good read for all. From Booklist Online: "If you pick up this book, it will be some time before you put your dog-eared, tear-stained copy back down. Wein succeeds on three fronts: historical verisimilitude, gut-wrenching mystery, and a first-person voice of such confidence and flair that the protagonist might become a classic character. . . . Both crushingly sad and hugely inspirational, this plausible, unsentimental novel will thoroughly move even the most cynical of readers." More info →

Life and Other Near-Death Experiences

Life and Other Near-Death Experiences

Bustle calls this novel "anything but formulaic: it's unceasingly delightful, and Libby Miller is a sensitive, super-smart Everywoman hero you'll come to adore." I’ve had the pleasure of reading several of Camille’s books, and they have a few important things in common: they're all about love, loss, and navigating life's curve balls with humor and style. They go down like light-hearted, escapist reads, but they address issues that matter to us all. I read this one last fall. More info →

What to Say Next

What to Say Next

Libro.fm is running a sale on several titles this month. No membership required for most sale prices, including this one. The ebook is not on sale. I adored Buxbaum's novel Tell Me Three Things. The plot line is similar: in the wake of personal tragedy, a teen can't go back to the way things were before ... which opens the door to new and surprising possibilities. I loved her characters here and didn't want to put this one down. Fans of The Rosie Project will enjoy Buxbaum’s tale of the unlikely friendship between David, a teen on the Autism spectrum, and Kit, a popular girl whose father recently died. What To Say Next explores grief, family dynamics, and cyberbullying in a way that's still compulsively readable. More info →

This Must Be the Place

This Must Be the Place

This was one of my favorite books of 2017, one of my favorite rereads in 2018, and I'm called it a favorite again last year. Notice a trend? Family stories are commonplace in fiction, but I love this one for its intricate plotting, nuanced characters, true-to-life feel, and ultimate hopefulness. This is the story of an unlikely but successful marriage between a floundering American professor and a British film star who hated the limelight so much she faked her own death and disappeared ... until an unexpected bit of news, twenty years old but newly discovered, threatens to unravel everything they've built together. If you want to hear me talk more about this story, told in interlocking scenes from different viewpoints, occurring between 1944 and 2016, it's the subject of One Great Book episode 8. More info →

Seven Brief Lessons on Physics

Seven Brief Lessons on Physics

Libro.fm is running a sale on several titles this month. No membership required for most sale prices, including this one. The ebook is not on sale. This slim book is just what the title says it is—seven brief lessons on physics—about Einstein's theory of relativity, quantum mechanics, elementary particles, black holes, probability, time, and humans. Rovelli's writing is elegant and poetic, and attainable for the non-scientist. On my TBR because a wide variety of readers with great taste have raved about it. More info →

Tear Me Apart

Tear Me Apart

If you loved last year's domestic thriller Lie to Me, don't miss this new standalone suspense. Competitive skier Mindy Wright just needs one good race to qualify for the U.S. Olympic team, but on the downhill run she suffers a spectacular crash. The cause is quickly determined to be neither athlete error, nor overtraining, but leukemia—and Mindy is to survive, she needs to find a stem cell donor, and quickly. Her parents are eager to donate, but the test results reveal that they're not a match—because Mindy is not their daughter. A tightly-wound pageturner built around competitive skiing, family secrets, and a long-ago visit to a psychiatric hospital. More info →

Nothing to See Here

Nothing to See Here

This was the first bonus episode of the season for One Great Book and I didn't realize it when I recorded that episode but I would then recommend it to Brian Eichenberger on episode 201 of WSIRN. This is about an important political family that has a little problem—their kids catch on fire when they get mad. It's the perfect blend of the very real emotional family, and the bizarre which lets the author address serious things—life, work, power, ambition, relationships—without getting precious about it.
