I love curling up on the sofa with a blanket and getting lost in a good book. As we make our way through snowy, cold days, here’s a few books that have caught my interest.  I’ve read almost all the books that are on the “lists” and many didn’t impress. (I’m talking to you The Underground Railroad, Sweetbitter, The Wonder, The Girls. I know but I didn’t like them. Don’t bother unless you can check them out of the library.)

What I did like was:

The Assistants by Camille Perri. An accurate, hilarious portrayal of life as an assistant.

The Commonwealth by Ann Patchett.  All the hype is spot on.  An engaging tale about complex, family relationships.

Faithful by Alice Hoffman.  I LOVED this book and blew through it in an afternoon. The story is about growing up with a burden of guilt.

the book that matters most by Ann Hood. What books matter most to you? That’s the premise of the novel and it explores the relationship of why book matters and how literature can heal.

The Hopefuls by Jennifer Close.  This books is so DC, I had to include it.  It’s about the Obama campaign and it made me laugh.

small great things by Jodi Picoult.  As always, Jodi Picoult delivers a thought provoking book that’s a timely message about race.

The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan. A feel good novel about following your dreams.

Happy reading!
