In case you’re searching for a cupcake of a e book for summer season (mild, fluffy, candy and satisfying), that is the one. It’s one of the feel-good books I’ve learn in a very long time and I didn’t need it to finish. I LIVED for the witty banter, the Candy Dwelling Alabama vibe to the entire scenario, and the truth that whereas it was easy, it nonetheless had me absolutely intrigued and attempting to determine how it could finish. 10/10 would advocate diving into this one this summer season!
Nora Stephens’ life is books—she’s learn all of them—and she or he shouldn’t be that kind of heroine. Not the plucky one, not the laidback dream lady, and particularly not the lover. In actual fact, the one folks Nora is a heroine for are her purchasers, for whom she lands monumental offers as a cutthroat literary agent, and her beloved little sister Libby.
Which is why she agrees to go to Sunshine Falls, North Carolina for the month of August when Libby begs her for a sisters’ journey away—with visions of a small city transformation for Nora, who she’s satisfied must develop into the heroine in her personal story. However as an alternative of picnics in meadows, or run-ins with a good-looking nation physician or bulging-forearmed bartender, Nora retains bumping into Charlie Lastra, a bookish brooding editor from again within the metropolis. It might be a meet-cute if not for the truth that they’ve met many occasions and it’s by no means been cute.
If Nora is aware of she’s not an excellent heroine, Charlie is aware of he’s no one’s hero, however as they’re thrown collectively repeatedly—in a collection of coincidences no editor value their salt would permit—what they uncover would possibly simply unravel the rigorously crafted tales they’ve written about themselves.
This cookbook, by Shalene Flanagan and Elyse Kopecky, consists of so many mouthwatering and wholesome recipes which are designed to be nutrient-dense, but cooked shortly.

3. And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Housseini
I learn this e book when Liv was a child, and didn’t notice it till I used to be a number of chapters in. At this level, I used to be absolutely dedicated and determined to re-read the e book, which is one thing I by no means do. It was attention-grabbing to learn these pages once more older and hopefully wiser. Khaled Housseini is brilliantly gifted and he has a approach of drawing you right into a story, and breaking your coronary heart open whereas additionally filling it with hope. (I additionally extremely advocate The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns in case you haven’t learn them.) This e book was poignant, devastating, and explores the best way our selections have an effect on these round us. 10/10 would advocate, particularly in case you get pleasure from historic fiction and plots that cowl quite a lot of characters’ views.
Khaled Hosseini, the number-one New York Instances best-selling creator of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a brand new novel about how we love, how we handle each other, and the way the alternatives we make resonate via generations. On this story revolving round not simply mother and father and youngsters however brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the various methods wherein households nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for each other; and the way usually we’re stunned by the actions of these closest to us, on the occasions that matter most. Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and selections and loves across the globe—from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos—the story expands step by step outward, changing into extra emotionally complicated and highly effective with every passing minute.
