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 Listening Life

The Listening Life

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

Author:
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 →

Circling the Sun: A Novel

Circling the Sun: A Novel

Author:
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. Ann Patchett calls Paula McLain "the new star of historical fiction, and for good reason. . . beautifully written and utterly engrossing." From the publisher: "Transporting readers to colonial Kenya in the 1920s. Circling the Sun brings to life a fearless and captivating woman—Beryl Markham, a record-setting aviator caught up in a passionate love triangle with safari hunter Denys Finch Hatton and Karen Blixen, who as Isak Dinesen wrote the classic memoir Out of Africa. Beryl forges her own path as a horse trainer, and her uncommon style attracts the eye of the Happy Valley set, a decadent, bohemian community of European expats who also live and love by their own set of rules. But it’s the ruggedly charismatic Denys Finch Hatton who ultimately helps Beryl navigate the uncharted territory of her own heart. The intensity of their love reveals Beryl’s truest self and her fate: to fly." More info →

Halsey Street

Halsey Street

Author:
Glory Edim chose this for Well-Read Black Girl. From the publisher: "Penelope Grand has scrapped her failed career as an artist in Pittsburgh and moved back to Brooklyn to keep an eye on her ailing father. She's accepted that her future won’t be what she'd dreamed, but now, as gentrification has completely reshaped her old neighborhood, even her past is unrecognizable. Old haunts have been razed, and wealthy white strangers have replaced every familiar face in Bed-Stuy. Even her mother, Mirella, has abandoned the family to reclaim her roots in the Dominican Republic. That took courage. It’s also unforgivable. When Penelope moves into the attic apartment of the affluent Harpers, she thinks she's found a semblance of family—and maybe even love. But her world is upended again when she receives a postcard from Mirella asking for reconciliation. Halsey Street shifts between the perspectives of these two captivating, troubled women."

Kit Averin is anything but a gambler. A scientist with a quiet, steady job at a university, Kit’s focus has always been maintaining the acceptable status quo.

The Cove

The Cove

Author:
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 →

Daily Rituals: How Artists Work

Daily Rituals: How Artists Work

Author:
This NEVER goes on sale! The concept couldn't be simpler: Currey lays out the daily routines of 237 writers, composers, painters, choreographers, playwrights, poets, philosophers, sculptors, filmmakers, and scientists. Read it straight through, or pursue each artist's daily rhythms at leisure. Take inspiration where you find it, and return to its pages again and again when you're feeling stalled or stymied in your work. I found this book depressing (so much drunkenness and drug addiction) and enormously reassuring, because for every artist who works in bitter isolation, there's an one who does his best work after he drops the kids off for school in the family minivan. (I'm looking at you, Charles Schultz.) More info →

At Home in Mitford

At Home in Mitford

Author:
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 →

This deeply-researched biography portrays a harder and grittier life than that captured in Wilder's beloved Little House books, from her peripatetic childhood to her later collaboration with her daughter on the books that would bring her fame.

Author:
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. The scene: late 1980s, Washington DC: diplomat's wife Rebecca Stone has just given birth to her firstborn. 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 →

The Hazel Wood

The Hazel Wood

I loved this so much I included it in the 2018 Summer Reading Guide. Alice and her mom have spent 17 years on the run, trying to dodge the persistent bad luck mysteriously connected to an unnerving book of stories penned by Alice's estranged grandmother. When Alice's grandmother dies, her mother thinks they're free—until the day Alice comes home from school to discover Ella has been kidnapped, leaving behind a page torn from her grandmother's book and a note: Stay away from the Hazel Wood. But Alice has to save her mom, so she enters what she slowly begins to see is her grandmother's book of stories-come-to-life—and they suddenly look a lot more like horror than fantasy. This seriously twisted and sometimes bloody fairy tale reminds me of The Thirteenth Tale, with a dash of The Matrix. More info →

The Garden of Small Beginnings

Author:
This is laugh out loud funny, tender, and written in a fresh voice, which you might not expect given the premise. Lilian's husband died in a car accident in front of their house four years ago and she hasn’t been quite ready to move on. Lili is no longer stuck in her grief, but she is in a rut, and generally okay with it: life with her daughters is enough. But when she's given a special project at work to illustrate a book about vegetables, she's signed up for their six-week garden class, introducing Lili (and the readers!) to a delightful cast of fellow gardeners. An unlikely community forms, and no one is quite the same by the time the class ends. More info →

In Don't Overthink It, you'll find actionable strategies that can make an immediate and lasting difference in how you deal with questions both small--Should I buy these flowers?--and large--What am I doing with my life? Don't Overthink It offers you a framework for making choices you'll be comfortable with, using an appropriate amount of energy, freeing you to focus on what really matters in life.

Even though Irene knows that reigniting her friendship with Clare will lead to trouble, she can't resist allowing Irene into her world. Irene in turn wants to rekindle her bonds with the African American community of her youth. As tensions mount between friends and between couples, this taut and mesmerizing narrative spins towards an unexpected end." More info →

From the publisher: "Mary, the bookish ugly duckling of Pride and Prejudice's five Bennet sisters, emerges from the shadows and transforms into a desired woman with choices of her own. What if Mary Bennet's life took a different path from that laid out for her? What if the frustrated intellectual of the Bennet family, the marginalized middle daughter, the plain girl who takes refuge in her books, eventually found the fulfillment enjoyed by her prettier, more confident sisters? This is the plot of Janice Hadlow's debut novel with exactly the affection and authority to satisfy Jane Austen fans. Mary's destiny diverges from that of her sisters. It does not involve broad acres or landed gentry. But it does include a man; and, as in all Austen novels, Mary must decide whether he is the truly the one for her." More info →

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.'"
