There’s nothing better than curling up on your sofa with a good book. Since we do that pretty often, we decided to round up five more books that we’ve been loving this month. Check them out below and let us know if any of them are lining your bookcase!
A Word for Love – Emily Robbins
First up is Emily Robbins’ debut novel, A Word for Love. This novel follows American exchange student Bea as she is traveling in a Middle Eastern country. She is in search of a sacred text that is an ancient love story that moves its readers to tears. On her journey, she encounters civil unrest, different cultures, and incredible people that change her.
The Uncoupling – Meg Wolitzer
The Uncoupling is a funny, provocative novel that takes place in a small town where the local high school is put ting on a production of “Lysistrata”. The play is about women withholding sex to end a war, but the play starts hitting close to home when the women of this town start doing the same thing to their significant others.
The Ten-Year Nap – Meg Wolitzer
In another tale by Meg Wolitzer, The Ten-Year Nap surrounds a group of women who have chosen a life of stay-at-home motherhood. After ten years, they meet a woman who seemingly has everything going for her, which forces the friends to evaluate the choices they’ve made and the lives they lead. It’s a book you should definitely pick up!
There Will Be No Miracles Here – Casey Gerald
Casey Gerald’s memoir There Will Be No Miracles Here is darkly poignant and gripping from the start. In his rags-to-riches tale, Gerald details his life as someone who came from the margins of poverty and how he overcame it to achieve his version of the American Dream. It’s a great read that makes you feel every single emotion, so be prepared to get vulnerable with him.
What it Means When A Man Falls from the Sky – Lesley Nneka Arimah
What it Means When a Man Falls from the Sky is a debut collection of short stories from Lesley Nneka Arimah. It weaves together tales of family connections, heartbreak, yearning, and so much more. This is a great book to pick up if you would rather read something quickly before bed rather than committing to one complete narrative.
