Whether you’re looking to cozy up with a good read on a cold winter day or headed to the beach, here are a few of my latest suggestions:
Tales From The Back Row, by Amy Odell
If you’re looking for a light and witty read and are interested in getting an inside look in the life of Amy Odell, fashion editor of Cosmopolitan.com, this book is a must.
The Marriage of Opposites, by Alice Hoffman
This remarkable novel is about a forbidden love story set on the tropical island of St. Thomas. Interesting to note, the novel was set around a Sephardic Jewish Community that escaped the inquisition and immigrated to this Caribbean island. Couldn’t put this one down.
The Nightingale, by Kristin Hannah
A story of survival and what we do for love set during World War II in occupied France. An intense story of sacrifice and resilience. Heart wrenching but worth it. Do not bring this with you to the beach. This is for a cold winter day.
Who Do You Love, by Jennifer Weiner
A love story that spans three decades between two teens; one from an affluent suburb in Florida and another from a poor neighborhood in Philadelphia. An easy read to take with you anywhere.
How To Be A Grown Up, by Emma McLaughlin & Nicola Kraus
This is a story of a 40 something woman forced to reenter the work force when her actor husband suffers a mid life crisis and decided to “take a break” from the marriage.
A light and heart warming story that shows a woman’s strength and capabilities. A one day read. Just the light perfect book for a Saturday day.
Three “lighter” novels are currently sitting on my desk…Need to take a break from the heavy hearted after Nightingale.
