All of the books by Liane Moriarty, author of Big Little Lies, are reliably entertaining reads. This one is my favorite. Alice hits her head, forgetting the last 10 years of her life.  She doesn't remember the birth of her first child, much less the next two, and she has no memory of being in the middle of a bitter divorce. This is her journey to regain her memory.

It is hard to choose my favorite Jane Austen novel, and often it rotates with my mood, but Emma always makes me laugh and warms my heart. If you haven't read this Jane Austen, give it a try, then read all the rest of her books.


Future Home of the Living God: A Novel By Louise Erdrich Cover Image

Published: Harper Perennial - November 13th, 2018

If you are a fan of Atwood, and specifically The Handmaid's Tale, this book is a must read. Erdrich's storytelling feels very intimate, which I prefer in a dystopian novel. A larger picture comes into focus through the perspective of Cedar's individual experience. Quietly disturbing, this story will stick with you long after you've read the last page. I would put it in league with The School for Good Mothers by Jessamine Chan and Our Missing Hearts by Celeste Ng.
