- •Shiny Broken Pieces by Sona Charapoitra and Dhonielle ClaytonThis is the sequel to Tiny Pretty Things, the YA novel about mean girls at a ballet school that was the only thing I could focus on during the Great Summer Reading Slump of summer 2015. Promises just as much drama so far!
- •Wolf Hall by Hillary MantelAdmittedly I find it a little confusing so far, but I just started and I'm in it to win it.Suggested by @victoriaedel
- •An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth by Chris Hadfield.8/10. It's written by our highest ranking Canadian astronaut. If you want to know what living on the space station is like read this. 🇨🇦Suggested by @solitarygigi
- •Ready Player One by Ernest ClineVery into this! I'm only about halfway through but I'm gonna go ahead and give it 8/10 so far. Would def recommend.Suggested by @laur
- •Dietland by Sarai WalkerJust started it. I heard about it on This American Life last week (Tell Me I'm Fat) and was intrigued. It's a compelling read so far.Suggested by @tweedledee
- •The Girls - Emma ClineEnjoying it so far, but anxiously awaiting the murder/grisly parts of the cult it talks about. Definitely impressive that a 27 y/o wrote this. 7/10 so far!Suggested by @torihyndman
- •Under the Banner of Heaven by Jon KrakauerI think Krakauer's "Into Thin Air," about the deadliest season on Mount Everest, is so good, so I've had this on my list for years. It bounces around a lot between the crime and the history of the Mormon religion, so I had a little trouble following for a while, but I think I'm mostly past the history and into the psychology and that's what I'm interested in.Suggested by @kfoleywellness
- •Stories I Only Tell My Friends by Rob LoweI have this as an audiobook based on a recommendation, and so far I really like it. I love listening to Rob Lowe talk, and I think the book is well-written and enjoyable.Suggested by @kfoleywellness
- •Every Good Endeavor by Tim KellerActually starting this one right now! It's required reading for a conference in attending in August and I'm excited to get into it! I always love Keller's books.Suggested by @KikiHines
- •All the Bright Places by Jennifer NivenJust started this! I have a feeling it's going to be emotional.Suggested by @macnchz
