That Kind of Mother

That Kind of Mother

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 →

Long Life: Essays and Other Writings

Long Life: Essays and Other Writings

Author:
For anyone who think might be at all inclined to enjoy essays and poetry, Mary Oliver is always a safe bet. A welcome addition to any book-lovers' collection. The author says in the foreword: "Poets must read and study, but also they must learn to tilt and whisper, shout, or dance, each in his or her own way, or we might just as well copy the old books. But, no, that would never do, for always the new self swimming around in the old world feels itself uniquely verbal. And that is just the point: how the world, moist and bountiful, calls to each of us to make a new and serious response. That's the big question, the one the world throws at you every morning. 'Here you are, alive. Would you like to make a comment?' This book is my comment." More info →

The Summer I Turned Pretty (Summer Series Book 1)

The Summer I Turned Pretty (Summer Series Book 1)

Author:
Jenny Han is great summer reading. From the publisher: "Some summers are just destined to be pretty. Belly measures her life in summers. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer—they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one summer, one wonderful and terrible summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along." More info →

The Overdue Life of Amy Byler

The Overdue Life of Amy Byler

Author:
From the publisher: "Overworked and underappreciated, single mom Amy Byler needs a break. So when the guilt-ridden husband who abandoned her shows up and offers to take care of their kids for the summer, she accepts his offer and escapes rural Pennsylvania for New York City. Usually grounded and mild mannered, Amy finally lets her hair down in the city that never sleeps. She discovers a life filled with culture, sophistication, and—with a little encouragement from her friends—a few blind dates. When one man in particular makes quick work of Amy's heart, she risks losing herself completely in the unexpected escape, and as the summer comes to an end, Amy realizes too late that she must make an impossible decision: stay in this exciting new chapter of her life, or return to the life she left behind. But before she can choose, a crisis forces the two worlds together, and Amy must stare down a future where she could lose both sides of herself, and every dream she's ever nurtured, in the beat of a heart."

Mrs. Everything

Mrs. Everything

By Summer Reading Guide author Jennifer Weiner. From the publisher: "Jo and Bethie Kaufman were born into a world full of promise. Growing up in 1950s Detroit, they live in a perfect 'Dick and Jane' house, where their roles in the family are clearly defined. Jo is the tomboy, the bookish rebel with a passion to make the world more fair; Bethie is the pretty, feminine good girl, a would-be star who enjoys the power her beauty confers and dreams of a traditional life. But the truth ends up looking different from what the girls imagined. Jo and Bethie survive traumas and tragedies. As their lives unfold against the background of free love and Vietnam, Woodstock and women's lib, Bethie becomes an adventure-loving wild child who dives headlong into the counterculture and is up for anything (except settling down). Meanwhile, Jo becomes a proper young mother in Connecticut, a witness to the changing world instead of a participant. Neither woman inhabits the world she dreams of, nor has a life that feels authentic or brings her joy. Is it too late for the women to finally stake a claim on happily ever after?" More info →

The War That Saved My Life

The War That Saved My Life

I just loved this. It’s a Newbery Honor Book, set during WWII, and the plot is set in motion when two children—one of whom is very much unwanted—are evacuated from London into the British countryside. (If you think this sounds like Everyone Brave Is Forgiven you’re exactly right.) I'm very much looking forward to the sequel. More info →

Stay with Me

Stay with Me

Adebayo's debut is a powerful, emotional story about love, family, and fidelity set against the backdrop of the turbulent political climate of 1985-2008 Nigeria. The story begins with Yejide's mother-in-law arrives at her door with a guest in tow: her husband's second wife, that she didn't know he'd married. I recommended this on What Should I Read Next episode 148, "Rebuilding your life (and your library)." More info →

Nine Perfect Strangers

Nine Perfect Strangers

Liane Moriarty is one of my must-read authors, and her latest doesn't disappoint. In Moriarty's latest, nine strangers spend ten days at a luxurious health resort. Seeing as it's a Liane Moriarty novel, something is clearly about to go terribly wrong. She says the story actually started as a joke: after a stressful season, she began saying her next novel would take place at a tropical resort, and she'd have to spend a lot of time vacationing "for research purposes." But as she thought about it, she realized it really would make a good story. Swap out the tropical setting for an luxurious health retreat, bring in nine strangers, each with their own reason for renewal, and you're in for a great reading experience. Nicole Kidman's already snatched up the film rights. More info →

The Garden of Small Beginnings

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 →

But there can be a thin line between love and hate and what was supposed to be a one-night stand quickly turns out into "hooking up until this wedding is over" situation.

American Royals

American Royals

From the publisher: "What if America had a royal family? If you can't get enough of Harry and Meghan or Kate and William, meet American princesses Beatrice and Samantha. Crazy Rich Asians meets The Crown. When America won the Revolutionary War, its people offered General George Washington a crown. Two and a half centuries later, the House of Washington still sits on the throne. Like most royal families, the Washingtons have an heir and a spare. A future monarch and a backup battery. Each child knows exactly what is expected of them. But these aren't just any royals. They're American. The duty. The intrigue. The Crown. New York Times bestselling author Katharine McGee imagines an alternate version of the modern world, one where the glittering age of monarchies has not yet faded--and where love is still powerful enough to change the course of history."

The Last Book Party

The Last Book Party

Author:
Taylor Jenkins Reid says, "The Last Book Party is a delight. Reading this story of a young woman trying to find herself while surrounded by the bohemian literary scene during a summer on the Cape in the late '80s, I found myself nodding along in so many moments and dreading the last page." From the publisher: "In the summer of 1987, 25-year-old Eve Rosen is an aspiring writer languishing in a low-level assistant job, unable to shake the shadow of growing up with her brilliant brother. With her professional ambitions floundering, Eve jumps at the chance to attend an early summer gathering at the Cape Cod home of famed New Yorker writer Henry Grey and his poet wife, Tillie. Eve lands a new job as Henry Grey's research assistant and an invitation to Henry and Tillie’s exclusive and famed 'Book Party'― where attendees dress as literary characters. But by the night of the party, Eve discovers uncomfortable truths about her summer entanglements and understands that the literary world she so desperately wanted to be a part of is not at all what it seems."

Summer Hours at the Robbers Library

Summer Hours at the Robbers Library

Author:
Libro.fm is running a sale on several titles this month. No membership required for most sale prices, including this one. From the publisher: "For head librarian Kit, the public library in Riverton, New Hampshire, offers what she craves most: peace. Here, no one expects Kit to talk about the calamitous events that catapulted her out of what she thought was a settled, suburban life. She can simply submerge herself in her beloved books and try to forget her problems. But that changes when fifteen-year-old, home-schooled Sunny gets arrested for shoplifting a dictionary. The judge throws the book at Sunny—literally—assigning her to do community service at the library for the summer. Bright, curious, and eager to connect with someone other than her off-the-grid hippie parents, Sunny coaxes Kit out of her self-imposed isolation. They're joined by Rusty, a Wall Street high-flyer suddenly crashed to earth. In this little library that has become the heart of this small town, Kit, Sunny, and Rusty are drawn to each other, and to a cast of other offbeat regulars."
