When We Were Worthy

When We Were Worthy

On a small-town Southern Friday night, after the football game, two cars driven by local teens collide, killing three cheerleaders instantly. The only survivor is the driver at fault. Whalen expertly weaves together four voices, of four women whose lives were upended by what happened that night, to reveal to the reader what really happened—and why. Gripping, timely, and hard to put down. Look at that Audible narration add-on price! This was an audiobook so good you'll want just 5 more minutes (narrated by Joshilyn Jackson!). More info →

The Fifth Heart

The Fifth Heart

Author:
From the publisher: "In 1893, Sherlock Holmes and Henry James come to America together to solve the mystery of the 1885 death of Clover Adams, wife of the esteemed historian Henry Adams -- member of the Adams family that has given the United States two Presidents. Clover's suicide appears to be more than it at first seemed; the suspected foul play may involve matters of national importance. Holmes is currently on his Great Hiatus -- his three-year absence after Reichenbach Falls during which time the people of London believe him to be deceased. Holmes has faked his own death because, through his powers of ratiocination, the great detective has come to the conclusion that he is a fictional character. This leads to serious complications for James -- for if his esteemed fellow investigator is merely a work of fiction, what does that make him? And what can the master storyteller do to fight against the sinister power -- possibly named Moriarty -- that may or may not be controlling them from the shadows?" More info →

The Case of the Missing Marquess: An Enola Holmes Mystery

The Case of the Missing Marquess: An Enola Holmes Mystery

Author:
Perhaps you recognize the last name Holmes in Enola Holmes, Sherlock's younger sister with all the sleuthing abilities, and penchant for getting caught up in adventures. Enola is a heroine for all ages, and Katherine Kellgren's narration fits perfectly in the Sherlock universe. You might also have seen the Netflix trailer for the upcoming movie adaptation. I'm thinking this would be an excellent listen for the whole family, with a chance to compare it to the film version afterward. More info →

Mumbo Jumbo

Mumbo Jumbo

Author:
James Mustich says this noir mystery satire may be "the most rambunctious novel you'll ever read. ... Reed constructs a narrative—enlivened by photographs, drawings, charts, radio dispatches, and typographic variety." Harold Bloom selected this ragtime novel as one of the greatest books of the Western canon. From the publisher: "In 1920s America, a plague is spreading fast. From New Orleans to Chicago to New York, the 'Jes Grew' epidemic makes people desperate to dance, overturning social norms in the process. Spanning a dizzying host of genres, from cinema to academia to mythology, Mumbo Jumbo is a lively ride through a key decade of American history. In addition to ragtime, blues, and jazz, Reed's allegory draws on the Harlem Renaissance, the Back to Africa movement, and America's occupation of Haiti. His style throughout is as avant-garde and vibrant as the music at its center." More info →

The Gardner Heist: The True Story of the World’s Largest Unsolved Art Theft

Author:
Will and I listened to the first two episodes of the podcast Last Seen, about the Gardner Heist (I talked about it here, on 8 things I learned). From the publisher: "Shortly after midnight on March 18, 1990, two men broke into the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston and committed the largest art heist in history. They stole a dozen masterpieces, including one Vermeer, three Rembrandts, and five Degas. But after thousands of leads - and a $5 million reward - none of the paintings have been recovered. The missing masterpieces have become one of the nation's most extraordinary unsolved mysteries. After the death of famed art detective Harold Smith, reporter Ulrich Boser decided to take up the case." More info →

Libro.fm is running a sale on several titles this month. No membership required for most sale prices, including this one. I fell in love with Lucy Parker this year; this book—which revolves around a Jane Austen-based tv adaptation filmed on an English estate—is the one that inspired the 10 Romance Novels That Are Perfect for Summer Reading post. Parker brings us back to the London theater scene by way of The Austen Playbook, a live-action TV murder mystery where viewers at home determine the outcome for Austen's beloved characters. Actress Freddy finds herself distracted by grumpy critic Griff, whose home is hosting the event. And Griff? He's distracted right back but there's a secret in their respective families' histories that might undo everything.

Machines Like Me

Machines Like Me

Author:
From the publisher: "Machines Like Me takes place in an alternative 1980s London. Britain has lost the Falklands War, Margaret Thatcher battles Tony Benn for power, and Alan Turing achieves a breakthrough in artificial intelligence. Charlie, drifting through life and dodging full-time employment, is in love with Miranda, a bright student who lives with a terrible secret. When Charlie comes into money, he buys Adam, one of the first synthetic humans and—with Miranda's help—he designs Adam's personality. The near-perfect human that emerges is beautiful, strong, and clever, and these three beings confront a profound moral dilemma. In his subversive new novel, Ian McEwan asks whether a machine can understand the human heart—or whether we are the ones who lack understanding." More info →

Bloodchild and Other Stories

Bloodchild and Other Stories

Science fiction might be the eeriest genre of all. Think of The Twilight Zone or Black Mirror (neither of which you'll catch me watching before bed). In this genre, otherworldly elements often highlight real human themes, and Octavia Butler is a master of the craft. Her only collection of short stories includes the Hugo award-winning title story "Bloodchild," which examines a strange bond between tic-like aliens and the humans who have colonized their planet. Other stories are more realistic, but every tale exposes a new truth about the human condition. More info →

Beginner’s Luck (Chance of a Lifetime Book 1)

Author:
After reading Clayborn's forthcoming novel Love at First for the Winter Book Preview, I was in the mood to read more of her work as soon as possible. I tore through her Chance of a Lifetime trilogy, about three friends whose lives are changed after they go in together to buy what turns out to be a lottery ticket, in a week! This series opener centers Kit, a steady scientist who, because of her peripatetic childhood, wants to use her winnings to create a home for herself and develop roots in her community. So when Ben shows up in his role as recruiter her to entice her to leave it all behind and move to Texas ... well, it's a disaster. But as they keep talking, their connection grows. I loved watching Ben and Kit work through their respective baggage over the course of the story, and the large cast of well-developed secondary characters give this series life. More info →

Love Lettering

Love Lettering

Author:
Funny and moving, this contemporary romance is not only about love but friendship and the ways we make a place home. From the publisher: "Meg Mackworth's hand-lettering skill has made her famous as the Planner of Park Slope, designing custom journals for her New York City clientele. She has another skill too: reading signs that other people miss. Knowing the upcoming marriage of Reid Sutherland and his polished fiancée was doomed to fail is one thing, but weaving a secret word of warning into their wedding program is another. Meg may have thought no one would spot it, but she hadn't counted on sharp-eyed, pattern-obsessed Reid. A year later, Reid has tracked Meg down to find out how she knew that his meticulously planned future was about to implode. As they gradually open up to each other, both try to ignore a deepening connection between them. But the signs are there—irresistible, indisputable, urging Meg to heed the messages Reid is sending her, before it's too late . . ." More info →

The Book of Longings

The Book of Longings

Author:
The Book of Longings requires more nuance, more explanation, and more caveats than I can squeeze into this limited space. This novel is about the wife of Jesus. When I found out this was the premise of the book, I wasn't sure this was a good idea, though it certainly was an audacious one. But I have a good bit of trust in Sue Monk Kidd, knowing that she's written historical fiction with care and sensitivity, even reverence. And so, hesitantly, I started reading. Our narrator is Anna, only daughter to a prosperous family, educated, and betrothed to another man when her attention is captured by a carpenter. Kidd imagines how they form a friendship and wed. As Jesus begins to explore and pursue his calling, let me tell you: whatever you're expecting Kidd to do, this is not it. The vast majority of the book's action takes place during the years when we have no record of Jesus' life. I went in afraid, but I found this book absolutely fascinating. If you're listening on audio, don't miss the author's note, where Kidd explains why she took creative license to make Anna his partner. More info →

The fascinating characters that roam across the pages of Emma Donoghue's stories have all gone astray: they are emigrants, runaways, drifters, lovers old and new. They are gold miners and counterfeiters, attorneys and slaves. They travel for love or money, incognito or under duress. Astray offers us a surprising and moving history for restless times."

The ebook is not on sale. From the publisher: "In Other Words is a revelation. It is at heart a love story - of a long and sometimes difficult courtship and a passion that verges on obsession: that of a writer for another language. For Jhumpa Lahiri, that love was for Italian, which first captivated and capsized her during a trip to Florence after college. Although Lahiri studied Italian for many years afterward, true mastery always eluded her. Seeking full immersion, she decides to move to Rome with her family for 'a trial by fire, a sort of baptism' into a new language and world. Presented in a dual-language format, this is a wholly original book about exile, linguistic and otherwise, a startling act of self-reflection and a provocative exploration of belonging and reinvention."

Ruhlman’s How to Roast: Foolproof Techniques and Recipes for the Home Cook

Author:
I'm a fan of Ruhlman's food writing, and his recipes work. From the publisher: "In this first in a new series of books focusing on cooking methods, an award-winning cookbook author, food writer, and online culinary expert explores one of the most fundamental cooking techniques: roasting. Humankind has been roasting for millennia. Michael Ruhlman has developed a reputation for providing lucid, no-nonsense cooking advice as sharp as a good chef's knife. 'Of all our cooking terms," Ruhlman writes, "sautéed, grilled, poached, broiled -- I believe roasted is the most evocative adjective we can attach to our food, conjuring as it does ideas of deep rich flavors and delicious browning.' Ruhlman's How to Roast combines practical advice -- what tools you need, staple ingredients to have on hand, how to get the most out of your oven -- with 20 original and mouthwatering recipes, step-by-step illustration as well as finished-dish showpieces."
