The Last Days of Café Leila // Noor and her daughter Lily move from San Francisco to Iran. Noor grew up in Iran and they move back to take over the restaurant her family has run for three generations. Food and family, this book is on the top of my to read list.
The Thousandth Floor // Set in 22nd century Manhattan this teen read is a page turner I could not put down. The book is the first in a series (thank goodness) and focuses on five teens and their lives in “The Tower”.
The Circle // Mae Holland is hired to work at the world’s foremost internet company (picture something like Facebook combined with Google) and it seems like a dream come true. The movie comes out this week and looks SO good.
A Separation // A a couple decides to part ways, then Grace then hears that her unfaithful husband has gone missing. Not even sure if she wants to find him, she travels to Greece to hunt for her ex.
The Wonder // I have yet to read this one, but have heard rave reviews. The story centers on an English nurse brought to a small Irish village to observe what appears to be a miracle-a girl said to have survived without food for months. The nurse soon finds herself fighting to save the child’s life…
Today Will Be Different // The latest by Maria Semple (Where’d You Go, Bernadette) takes place over one day in the life of Eleanor Flood. The book unfolds as you gather an in-depth look in to Eleanor’s life, funny, interesting, and a page turner.
*Quick plug… my book club recently read You’ll Grow Out of It and it is the perfect beach book, in case you are in need of a recommendation.
