I am an infrequent reader, but when I find a book I love, I want to tell everyone about it. Here are the books that I’ve read recently.
The Book Edit
The most beautiful book I’ve ever read. Hopeful, compelling, and filled with emotion.
Taylor Jenkins Reid
If you love Old Hollywood and celebrity gossip, this is the book for you. A bit predictable, but a great, light read.
Emily St. John Mandel
Well-written, with an interesting story line. However, the plot at times felt unfinished and the dystopian elements gave me nightmares.
Hemingway became a superstar by selling out his “friends.” The truth behind The Sun Also Rises is stranger than fiction.
What if Jane Grey had lived? A fantastical tale that mixes magic, mystery, and history into a real page turner.
What happens when the admins revolt? They pay off their student loans, and everyone else’s. Who says crime doesn’t pay?
If you work in politics, you’ll have flashbacks reading these too-true stories of a political life. For everyone else, it features good career advice for driven women.
Marriage is about sacrifice. Sometimes that hurts. A great book about D.C. that gets the city and lifestyle right.
Journalism is a dying art. This book traces the history of one newspaper from boom to bust. This book will stick with you long after you finish it.
