Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

This New York Times Best Seller may have been released in 2018, but it’s still one of our favorite reads. Where The Crawdads Sing is a coming of age story that reminds us that our futures are shaped by the child we once were. Set in a quiet fishing village in 1969, you follow Kya Clark through loss, heartbreak, and betrayal as if you were walking through it with her side-by-side. 


The Four Winds by Kristin Hannah

Kristin Hannah’s historical fiction books have won the Goodreads Choice Awards twice since 2015, and we are excited to introduce you to her 2021 release, The Four Winds. Experience sacrifice and hope during the Dust Bowl era of the Great Depression through the eyes of a courageous and invincible young woman. Although the book itself is a work of fiction, Kristin Hannah accurately depicts real-life struggles faced by real-life people during this era in search of a better life. 


The Guest List by Lucy Foley

The Guest List was a Goodreads Choice Winner in 2020 for Best Mystery & Thriller and rightly so. A perfectly-planned, coastal Irish wedding sounds like a dream until everything starts to unravel and someone ends up dead. This slow-burning, classic whodunit will keep you on the edge of your seat as the plot twists and turns. 


Untamed by Glennon Doyle

This is the story of a woman and mother in need of a serious wake-up call. Through the story-telling of her own life experiences, Doyle reminds us to trust ourselves, set boundaries, and accept and experience your emotions to truly be the person you are meant to be.
