1. Read Bottom Up by Neel Shah and Skye Chatham.  Read Bottom Up is a love story for the digital age.  It’s written entirely in email and text message format…so while it is cute and entertaining, it will take you about two hours to read all the way through. The novel uses honesty and humor to show how digital communication has changed the dating game. I definitely wasn’t in love with this book (there’s just nothing that sticks with you), but if you’re in the mood for something breezy and charming, this is a good option.

2. The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan.  Not gonna lie, I LOVED this book. The Royal We is basically Kate Middleton fan fiction, and it’s so just entertaining. Not only that, but the writing is surprisingly good—witty, engaging, and just the perfect amount of detail.  If you love the royals (don’t we all?) and you love to read, you will devour this book.

3. A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler. This book has been on so many reading lists lately, and I finally got my hands on it. A Spool of Blue Thread is a beautifully written story about families, togetherness, forgiveness, and memories.  Anne Tyler has a true gift for character development and bringing readers into the heart of the story.  She captures the intricacies, pains, and joys of what it means to be a part of family.  It’s the kind of book you need to read slowly in order to really soak it all in. Fantastic writing.
