The Authenticity Project by Clare Pooley

Cori’s Pick: The Authenticity Project by Clare Pooley It’s the first of June and the start of summer is just a few weeks away.  I’m counting on it for a fresh start – anyone else?  In my book preferences I’m still bouncing between deeper literary reads, non-fiction, and books like this one that just make…

Normal People by Sally Rooney

Cori’s Pick: Normal People by Sally Rooney This book was published April 2019 and I don’t recollect a ton of buzz about it back then.  But then a couple of months ago, I started hearing about it more and more.  Come to find out, it was released as a Hulu original series in April 2020. …

A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder

Rebecca’s Pick: A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson Pippa doesn’t believe that Sal killed Andie. The police closed the investigation after Sal “admitted” to the crime and then killed himself, presumably out of remorse. But things still didn’t add up (at least in Pippa’s mind) 5 years later. She can’t ignore her…

My Oxford Year

Cori’s Pick: My Oxford Year by Julia Whelan Did you read the JoJo Moyes Me Before You trilogy?  Did you love it?  If so, I highly recommend you snatch up Julia Whelan’s tasty debut (April, 2018), sit back and prepare to laugh and perhaps shed a tear – no spoilers here, but for me, the…

The Gifted School

Cori’s Pick: The Gifted School by Bruce Holsinger Wow.  What a timely read!  This book was published in July of 2019 – which coincidentally was just a few months after the massive college admission cheating scandal of a couple of famous actresses (Ms Huffman, Ms Loughlin – we’re talkin’ about you). This is a juicy,…

Love on Lexington Avenue

Cori’s Pick: Love on Lexington Avenue by Lauren Layne I’ve been reading some more ‘literary’ fiction lately and was feeling like I needed to change it up a bit.  I picked up this book without realizing it was the second book of The Central Park Pact Series, so I read the series out of order. …

Such a Fun Age

Cori’s Pick: Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid Have you read this book?  I desperately need to chat with people about this book.  Such a Fun Age is Kiley Reid’s debut novel and has received lots of hype, and rightly so.  It is relevant in painting a portrait of race and class in contemporary…

Dear Edward

Cori’s Pick: Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano This was one of those books where the author magically captured my heart and made me truly care for the characters.  Eddie is twelve when his family, along with 179 other passengers, boards an airplane headed for L.A.  But halfway there, tragedy strikes and the plane crashes, and…

Suggested Reading

Rebecca’s Pick: Suggested Reading by Dave Connis Not gonna lie, it’s hard kind of hard to find a non-dystopian/apocalyptic YA, and I just wasn’t really in the mood for one of those right now…. So, I found a title that appealed more to my personal interests: the library and books! When the principal of Lupton…
