Check out this month’s book selections:
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid: Aging Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to spill about her glamorous and scandalous life – her risks, her loves, and her secrets. When she chooses an unknown, down-on-her-luck magazine reporter, Monique Grant, to pen the story, no one is more surprised than Monique, but she is determined to use the story to jumpstart her stagnant journalism career. As Evelyn rolls out her story, she and Monique forge a connection – one that becomes clearer as her story and Monique’s intersect in tragic and irreversible ways.
Chemistry: A Novel by Weike Wang: In Chemistry we follow an unnamed narrator through a journey of self-discovery and finding that there is more to life than the pressure to succeed and please those around her. She leaves her graduate studies in chemistry, a devoted boyfriend, and a predictable (though stressful) life to pursue her own dreams and learn the important life lessons that she won’t find in a textbook. The story is told through juxtapositions of science and reality, the anxieties of finding one’s place in the world, and the sacrifices you make for those you love.
White Fur by Jordine Libaire: In a fast-paced, ultra-modern take on the timeless love story, White Fur follows Elise and Jamey, two young star-crossed lovers from different sides of the track. As they take their intense relationship to the next level, Jamey’s family desperately intervenes and the consequences of staying together has suddenly higher stakes. When a night out with old friends takes a shocking turn, the couple fines they are no longer fighting just for their love, but for their lives as well.
The Sisters Chase by Sarah Healy: When 18-year-old Mary and her much younger sister Hannah lose their single mom in a car accident, they are suddenly the owners of their family’s tiny seaside motel that has been barely paying the bills. With few options, the sisters begin a cross-country journey in search of a better life. Faced with tough situations, Mary will stop at nothing to protect her beloved sister, but she now has to protect herself as well.
A Million Junes by Emily Henry: This one starts like a tale not unlike Romeo and Juliet – the daughter and son of two long-feuding families fall in love – but that’s about where the similarities end. The couple is also trying to uncover the truth about the magic and curses that have plagued their bloodlines for generations. Full of magic, ghosts, mythical creatures, love, and betrayal, this is a fun read.
(Special Bonus Book) Theft by Finding by David Sedaris: Master of the humorous essay, David Sedaris has built a career based on his witty observations about everyday life, and his diaries contain a treasure trove of raw material that shaped his distinctive writing. Theft by Finding is a 24-year spree of notes, recounted conversations, Christmas lists, overheard jokes, recipes, and straight up hilarity. Plus, it’s over 400 pages long (!!!!!).
Final Rating: A
Great choices this month (as usual), plus I am really stoked about the new David Sedaris book!! I love that BOTM includes fun extras like this. I look forward to it every month!
