Celine – Peter Heller
An elegant, aristocratic private eye who specializes in reuniting families, tries to make amends for a loss in her own past.
I’ve Been Thinking… – Maria Shriver
Shriver shares inspiring quotes, prayers, and reflections designed to get readers thinking, get them feeling, get them laughing, and help them in their journey to what she calls The Open Field–a place of acceptance, purpose, and passion–a place of joy.
My Dear Hamilton – Stephanie Dray & Laura Kamoie
The epic story of Eliza Schuyler Hamilton—a revolutionary woman who, like her new nation, struggled to define herself in the wake of war, betrayal, and tragedy.
Chicago – David Mamet
Mobbed-up 1920s Chicago: a city where some people knew too much, and where everyone should have known better. Mike Hodge, veteran of the Great War, big shot of the Chicago Tribune, probably shouldn’t have fallen in love with Annie Walsh. Then, again, maybe the man who killed Annie Walsh have known better than to trifle with Mike Hodge.
Little Fires Everywhere – Celeste Ng
In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is planned – from the layout of the winding roads, to the colors of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules.
The Alice Network – Kate Quinn
It’s 1947 and American college girl Charlie St. Clair is pregnant, unmarried, and on the verge of being thrown out of her very proper family. She’s also nursing a fervent belief that her beloved French cousin Rose, who disappeared in Nazi-occupied France during the war, might still be alive somewhere. So when Charlie’s family banishes her to Europe to have her “little problem” take care of, Charlie breaks free and heads to London determined to find out what happened to the cousin she loves like a sister.
Dear Girl – Amy Krouse Rosenthal
Encourages readers to accept and love themselves as they are and advises them to be confident, curious, adaptable, and willing to speak up.
Educated – Tara Westover
Westover was born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho. She prepared for the end of the world by stockpiling food and sleeping with her “head-for-the-hills bag.” The family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when one of Tara’s older brothers became violent. As a way out, Tara began to educate herself, learning enough mathematics and grammar to be admitted to Brigham Young University.
Magpie Murders – Anthony Horowitz
A brilliant and strikingly original reimagining of the classic whodunit (a la Agatha Christie) with a contemporary mystery wrapped around it
True Roots – Kristin Cavallari
In her first book, Kristin Cavallari shared her personal journey along with her tips on everything from style to relationships. Now, Cavallari shows you that improving the way you eat doesn’t have to be difficult–a clean and toxin-free diet can and should be fun, easy, and enjoyable.
