Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell

Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell

Author:
It's the beginning of the nineteenth century, and people believe magic is dead in England. They are wrong. In this alternative history, Clarke introduces us to her two eponymous magicians, drawing inspiration from literary greats like Austen and Dickens. What you need to know: The New York Times called this modern classic "Hogwarts for grown-ups." An impressively diverse assortment of readers have heartily recommended it. After you finish the book, check out the BBC's miniseries. More info →

Native Son

Native Son

Author:
This gritty novel wrecked me when I first read it in high school: Wright's story is raw, violent, emotionally wrenching, and utterly unforgettable. Through the eyes of Bigger Thomas, a twenty-year-old black man living in Chicago in the 1930s, we see the extreme racial inequalities his family experiences— and how they first harden, and then desensitize Bigger. This was Wright's first novel, and on its publication in 1940, it became one of the fastest-selling novels in America's history, and remains incredibly timely today. More info →

Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy: Four Women Undercover in the Civil War

Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy: Four Women Undercover in the Civil War

Author:
I recommended this one in WSIRN Episode 20: Southern classics, sweeping sagas, and spunky women with Sarah Russell Giglio. Abbott brings four little-known stories to life—four women who were spies in the Civil War. Confederate spy Belle Boyd used her southern charms to seduce men into telling their secrets. Emma Edmonds went undercover as a male enlisted soldier. Rose O’Neale Greenhow used her connections and status as a prominent widow to gather intelligence, and abolitionist Elizabeth Van Lew covered an entire espionage ring, tricking rebel soldiers with her proper manners. Well-known characters enter the narrative, like Walt Whitman, Pinkerton, and the Lincolns as Abbott takes you inside the war and undercover with these incredibly bold women. More info →

Jayber Crow

Jayber Crow

Author:
This is one of the books I read over and over again so it only makes sense I'd recommend it over and over. I first recommended it to Andrea Griffith in Episode 28, "Books that no one's writing about in Entertainment Weekly." I resisted reading this one for a long time because I thought the name "Jayber" was ugly. Please don't make that mistake. This gorgeous novel has an impressive sense of place. It's a book you can see and feel. It's contemplative, beautiful, and sad. It's a book that stays with you. More info →

Eligible: A Modern Retelling of Pride and Prejudice

Eligible: A Modern Retelling of Pride and Prejudice

This is the fourth installment of the Jane Austen Project, which invites contemporary authors to rework Jane Austen's novels for modern times, and my hands-down favorite. Our modern tale is set in Cincinnati, where Lizzie is re-cast as an NYC-based magazine editor, Jane is a yoga instructor nearing 40, Darcy is a snooty brain surgeon, and Bingley is an ER doctor turned star of the reality show "Eligible." The purists will need their smelling salts, but Sittenfeld is no Jane Austen, and she's okay with that: her snappy writing and spirit of playfulness make this such good fun for Jane Austen fans, if you're willing to go with it. (Think what 10 Things I Hate About You did with The Taming of the Shrew.) More info →

All the Ugly and Wonderful Things

All the Ugly and Wonderful Things

Author:
From the publisher: "A beautiful and provocative love story between two unlikely people and the hard-won relationship that elevates them above the Midwestern meth lab backdrop of their lives." They are not kidding when they say "provocative": this book is NOT for everyone, will seriously mess with your mind, and is (therefore) the subject of an interesting discussion on an upcoming episode of What Should I Read Next. Publishers Weekly calls this "a memorable coming-of-age tale about loyalty, defiance, and the power of love under the most improbable circumstances." 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 →

The Futures

Author:
Town & Country called this the "next great New York novel." There was so much I loved about this story about a young couple who moves to NYC just before the financial meltdown of 2008 and the tone was pitch perfect. I can't say more without dropping serious spoilers, but I sure would love to rant about it at book club together. More info →

Unleashing Mr. Darcy

Unleashing Mr. Darcy

Author:
From the author of Summer Reading Guide pick The Accidental Beauty Queen, the story of a woman teetering on the edge of thirty not in want of a husband, despite the truth universally acknowledged. From the publisher: "For Manhattanite Elizabeth Scott, instead of planning a walk down the aisle, she's crossing the pond with the only companion she needs-her darling dog, Bliss. Caring for a pack of show dogs in England seems the perfect distraction from the scandal that ruined her teaching career. What she doesn't count on is an unstoppable attraction to billionaire dog breeder Donovan Darcy. The London tycoon's a little bit arrogant, a whole lot sexy...and the chemistry between them is disarming. When passion is finally unleashed, might Elizabeth hope to take home more than a blue ribbon?" More info →

The ebook is not on sale. From the publisher: "Soon to be a Netflix feature film starring Reese Witherspoon. In this charming and poignant debut, one woman's unconventional journey to finding love means learning to embrace the unexpected. For Susan Green, messy emotions don't fit into the equation of her perfectly ordered life. She has a flat that is ideal for one, a job that suits her passion for logic, and an 'interpersonal arrangement' that provides cultural and other, more intimate, benefits. But suddenly confronted with the loss of her mother and the news that she is about to become a mother herself, Susan's greatest fear is realized. She is losing control. Enter Rob, the dubious but well-meaning friend of her indolent brother. As Susan's due date draws near and her dismantled world falls further into a tailspin, Susan finds an unlikely ally in Rob. She might have a chance at finding real love and learning to love herself, if only she can figure out how to let go." More info →

For fans of the Hunger Games series, The Giver, and The Selection. From the publisher: "Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her ideal mate . . . until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. The Society tells her it's a glitch, a rare malfunction, and that she should focus on the happy life she's destined to lead with Xander. But Cassia can't stop thinking about Ky, and as they slowly fall in love, Cassia begins to doubt the Society's infallibility and is faced with an impossible choice: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she's known and a path that no one else has dared to follow."

All Systems Red: The Murderbot Diaries

All Systems Red: The Murderbot Diaries

Author:
Emily just selected this as one of her favorites on WSIRN episode259. I had to laugh when she described the series like this: "As if A Man Called Ove met Frankenstein. Murderbot is a security robot that was wiped and what he really wants to do now that he has his freedom, is watch TV all the time. The Man Called Ove part comes in because he's basically a curmudgeon. He really just wants to be left alone to watch TV, and yet people keep interrupting him and wanting to form relationships with him and encourage him to have emotions other messiness that he has no time for. Except that he's growing fond of the squishy people and he doesn't really want them to die. The Frankenstein aspect because it’s one of those who’s the monster books—is it the created creature or is the creator. They're just so much fun and a really good time." More info →

Growing up, she dreams of a green vacation spot called Lighthouse Island, in a place called the Pacific Northwest. When an opportunity for escape arises, Nadia embarks on a dangerous and sometimes comic adventure.
