The Road to Character

The Road to Character

Author:
"Joy," David Brooks writes, "is a byproduct experienced by people who are aiming for something else. But it comes." From the publisher: "Blending psychology, politics, spirituality, and confessional, The Road to Character provides an opportunity for us to rethink our priorities, and strive to build rich inner lives. With the wisdom, humor, curiosity, and sharp insights that have brought millions of readers to his New York Times column, David Brooks has consistently illuminated our daily lives in surprising and original ways. Responding to what he calls the culture of the Big Me, which emphasizes external success, Brooks challenges us, and himself, to rebalance the scales between our 'résumé virtues'—achieving wealth, fame, and status—and our 'eulogy virtues,' those that exist at the core of our being: kindness, bravery, honesty, or faithfulness, focusing on what kind of relationships we have formed."

On Becoming Fearless

On Becoming Fearless

From the publisher: "Observing that her own teenage daughters were beginning to experience some of the same fears that had once burdened her -- How attractive am I? Do people like me? Do I dare speak up? -- Arianna Huffington was compelled to look at the subject and impact of fear. In stories drawn from her own experiences and with contributions from Nora Ephron, Diane Keaton and many others, she points toward the moments of extraordinary strength, courage, and resilience that result from confronting and overcoming fear. Her book shows us how to become bold from the inside out: from feeling comfortable in our own skin, to getting what we want in love and at work, to changing the world." More info →

Dear Haiti, Love Alaine

Dear Haiti, Love Alaine

I've heard great things about this YA novel by sisters Maika and Maritza Moulite. One reviewer says "Alaine's sarcastic quips… are worth the price of admission alone." From the publisher: "Alaine Beauparlant has heard about Haiti all her life… But the stories were always passed down from her dad—and her mom, when she wasn't too busy with her high-profile newscaster gig. But when Alaine's life goes a bit sideways, it's time to finally visit Haiti herself. What she learns about Haiti’s proud history as the world's first black republic (with its even prouder people) is one thing, but what she learns about her own family is another. Suddenly, the secrets Alaine's mom has been keeping, including a family curse that has spanned generations, can no longer be avoided. It's a lot to handle, without even mentioning that Alaine is also working for her aunt's nonprofit, which sends underprivileged kids to school and boasts one annoyingly charming intern." More info →

Thin Places: A Memoir

Thin Places: A Memoir

Author:
A powerful memoir. From the publisher: "In her moving spiritual memoir, Mary DeMuth traces the winding path of 'thin places' in her life—places where she experienced longing and healing more intensely than before. As DeMuth writes, 'Thin places are snatches of holy ground, tucked into the corners of our world, where we might just catch a glimpse of eternity. They are aha moments, beautiful realizations, when the Son of God bursts through the hazy fog of our monotony and shines on us afresh.' From losing her earthly father to discovering a heavenly Father who never leaves, from singing Olivia Newton-John songs to the sky to worshiping God under a French sun, from surviving abuse as a latchkey kid to experiencing the joy of mothering three children, DeMuth's story calls readers to a deeper understanding of their own story."

Out of the Silent Planet

Out of the Silent Planet

Author:
Readers who couldn't get enough C. S. Lewis as a kid are often urged to move on to his Space Trilogy as they get older. Once again, he sets his fantasies against the backdrop of classical mythology and biblical imagery; his characters encounter extraordinary creatures, fight epic battles, and come face to face with deep wisdom. This first book in the series tells the story of Dr. Ransom, a Cambridge professor who discovers after he's abducted that he's been taken from the "silent planet" of Earth. J. R. R. Tolkien inspired Lewis to write this story, and the character of Dr. Ransom is largely based on him. More info →

The ebook is ALSO on sale. I want to read everything Shapiro has ever written. From Booklist: "Approaching her mid-forties, novelist Shapiro finds her life dominated by a seemingly unending list of to-do's and a constant feeling of anxiety over which she has no control. While her childhood had been infused with religious tradition, Shapiro doesn't consider herself a believer or a nonbeliever. Yet, she is pulled to understand and deepen her own personal sense of faith as a means to calm the deep-rooted uncertainty and chaos of everyday life. In doing so, she seeks out a variety of different experiences and practices, such as yoga and silent meditation retreats, along with visits to the local synagogue and her Orthodox Jewish relatives."

The Novel Cure: From Abandonment to Zestlessness: 751 Books to Cure What Ails You

The Novel Cure: From Abandonment to Zestlessness: 751 Books to Cure What Ails You

From the publisher: "To create this apothecary, the authors have trawled two thousand years of literature for novels that effectively promote happiness, health, and sanity, written by brilliant minds who knew what it meant to be human and wrote their life lessons into their fiction. Structured like a reference book, readers simply look up their ailment, be it agoraphobia, boredom, or a midlife crisis, and are given a novel to read as the antidote. Aware that you’ve been cowardly? Pick up To Kill a Mockingbird for an injection of courage. Experiencing a sudden, acute fear of death? Read One Hundred Years of Solitude for some perspective on the larger cycle of life. Nervous about throwing a dinner party? Ali Smith's There but for The will convince you that yours could never go that wrong. Brilliant in concept and deeply satisfying in execution, it will reaffirm literature's ability to distract and transport, to resonate and reassure, to change the way we see the world and our place in it."

Lamott ventures to explore where to find meaning in life. We should begin, she suggests, by 'facing a great big mess, especially the great big mess of ourselves.' Full of Lamott's trademark honesty, humor and forthrightness, Hallelujah Anyway is profound and caring, funny and wise—a hopeful book of hands-on spirituality." More info →

Acedia & me: A Marriage, Monks, and a Writer’s Life

Acedia & me: A Marriage, Monks, and a Writer’s Life

Author:
I love Kathleen Norris; I've read this particular book at least 3 times. From the publisher: "Kathleen Norris's masterpiece: a personal and moving memoir that resurrects the ancient term acedia, or soul-weariness, and brilliantly explores its relevancy to the modern individual and culture. Fascinated by this 'noonday demon,' Norris read intensively and knew she must restore this forgotten but utterly relevant and important concept to the modern world's vernacular. Like Norris's bestselling The Cloister Walk, Acedia & me is part memoir and part meditation. An examination of acedia in the light of theology, psychology, monastic spirituality, the healing powers of religious practice, and Norris's own experience, Acedia & me is both intimate and historically sweeping, brimming with exasperation and reverence, sometimes funny, often provocative, and always important."

Men We Reaped: A Memoir

Men We Reaped: A Memoir

Author:
From the publisher: "Two-time National Book Award winner Jesmyn Ward (Salvage the Bones, Sing, Unburied, Sing) contends with the deaths of five young men dear to her, and the risk of being a black man in the rural South. In five years, Jesmyn Ward lost five young men in her life-to drugs, accidents, suicide, and the bad luck that can follow people who live in poverty, particularly black men. She bravely tells her story, revisiting the agonizing losses of her only brother and her friends. As the sole member of her family to leave home and pursue higher education, she writes about this parallel American universe with the objectivity distance provides and the intimacy of utter familiarity. A brutal world rendered beautifully, Jesmyn Ward's memoir will sit comfortably alongside Tobias Wolff's This Boy's Life and Maya Angelou's I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings." More info →

I was engrossed in the story of 15-year-old Brianna, who is confident in her dreams—and has a chance of making them come true—but first has to navigate a whole slew of pitfalls, both the ones forced upon her and the ones of her own making. If you appreciated The Hate U Give, add this to your TBR immediately. Bri is an aspiring rapper, and rap battles feature prominently in the plot: for that reason I'm so glad I listened. This was one of my favorite listening experiences of the year. Bahni Turpin's narration is exceptional. Whispersync narration available. More info →

Never Have I Ever

Never Have I Ever

Jackson’s latest Southern story feels both exactly like the books her long-time readers know and love and like a total departure—and I loved it. Her domestic thriller (yes, really!) begins at a book club meeting in a quiet suburban neighborhood. These women live quiet lives revolving around family and sometimes work; they know each other well, and everything unfolds as usual … until a new guest arrives, one who has a score to settle based on long-buried secrets, and who won't rest until she makes the woman pay for her crimes. But what happened back then, and why does it matter now? I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough in my quest to discover the truth for myself. An absorbing, rewarding mystery that will delight her loyal readers and entice new fans. More info →

Don’t Overthink It: Make Easier Decisions, Stop Second-Guessing, and Bring More Joy to Your Life

Author:
Nobody wants to live a life of constant overthinking, but it doesn't feel like something we can choose to stop doing. We've all been there: stuck in a cycle of what-ifs, plagued by indecision, paralyzed by the fear of getting it wrong. It feels like something we're wired to do, something we just can't escape. But is it? My answer is no. Not only can you overcome negative thought patterns that are repetitive, unhealthy, and unhelpful, you can replace them with positive thought patterns that will bring more peace, joy, and love into your life. 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.

The ebook is not on sale. I'd been eagerly awaiting the follow-up to King’s award-winning 2014 novel Euphoria. This much-anticipated novel follows Casey Peabody, who is mourning the sudden death of her mother plus a messy break-up in 1997 Massachusetts. Lost without direction, 31-year-old Casey waits tables to make ends meet while she works on her novel in a tiny, dingy rented room. While her friends have given up on their artistic ambitions in favor of stability and the next phase of life, Casey still harbors creative dreams and firmly grasps her youth. When she finds herself in the middle of a love triangle, it becomes all the more difficult to balance her art with "real life," and she just might reach her breaking point. It has one of the most satisfying endings I've read in ages. More info →

Passing

Passing

Author:
Nella Larsen's "distinctive and revealing novel about racial identity set in New York in 1929." Readers have suggested this as an excellent flight pick for The Vanishing Half. From the publisher: "Soon to be a major motion picture starring Tessa Thompson, Ruth Negga and Alexander Skarsgård. Irene Redfield, married to a successful physician, enjoys a comfortable life in Harlem, New York. Reluctantly, she renews her friendship with old school friend, Clare Kendry. Clare, who like Irene is light skinned, 'passes' as white and is married to a racist white man who has no idea about Clare's racial heritage. 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 →

Good Talk: A Memoir in Conversations

Good Talk: A Memoir in Conversations

Author:
Back in the summer in the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club members (and I) shared the best book we'd read at one of our Best Book of the season events. One Book Club member (hi, Mariah!) picked this as her favorite, saying it's "very appropriate for the conversations going on right now, but also just a great memoir." From the publisher: "Like many six-year-olds, Mira Jacob's half-Jewish, half-Indian son, Z, has questions about everything. At first they are innocuous enough, but as tensions from the 2016 election spread from the media into his own family, they become much, much more complicated. Trying to answer him honestly, Mira has to think back to where she's gotten her own answers: her most formative conversations about race, color, sexuality, and, of course, love. Written with humor and vulnerability, this deeply relatable graphic memoir is a love letter to the art of conversation—and to the hope that hovers in our most difficult questions." More info →

We Cast a Shadow

We Cast a Shadow

I talked with Charlandra Jenkins about this on episode 243 of What Should I Read Next. Charlandra called this one a new classic: "It's about a Black man in a 'post-racialized south' who works for a law firm. There can only be one person in this crop of associates ascend to partnership, and he believes that he needs to become a partner in order to get his biracial son a surgery that will render him white-passing. At first, it feels so over the top in terms of its satire, but it's so grounded in realism, in the real life complexities of being Black in America today. I feel strongly that book should be read in schools. I think it's incredible." More info →

The Street

The Street

Author:
From the publisher: "With a new introduction from New York Times best-selling author Tayari Jones: 'How can a novel's social criticism be so unflinching and clear, yet its plot moves like a house on fire? I am tempted to describe Petry as a magician for the many ways that The Street amazes, but this description cheapens her talent . . . Petry is a gifted artist.' The Street follows the spirited Lutie Johnson, a newly single mother whose efforts to claim a share of the American Dream for herself and her young son meet frustration at every turn in 1940s Harlem. Opening a fresh perspective on the realities and challenges of black, female, working-class life, The Street became the first novel by an African American woman to sell more than a million copies."
