- Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton. I just need to say something…I adore Glennon. She writes with a kind of honesty and vulnerability that I’ve never encountered in anything else I’ve read. She describes herself as a truth teller, and she really is…in the best possible way. Love Warrior is a memoir about marriage and infidelity and addiction and loss. It’s about finding God and yourself and learning to love another person without walls and stipulations. It is beautiful and painful and not for the faint of heart. I loved it!
- The Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne. To be honest, I’ve been putting off reading this play. I LOVE Harry Potter, and I was afraid not loving this would somehow lessen the experience in mind. I was so, so wrong. This play is amazing! The story, set in the wizarding world of Harry Potter nineteen years after the last book ended, revolves around Harry Potter’s son, Albus, and his adventures with his best friend Scorpius. The plot was not what I expected at all—it was so much better! I don’t want to give anything away here, but if you love Harry Potter then you will love this, too. You even forget you’re reading a play after a few pages and just get absorbed in the story. Just magical. And it makes me want to plan a trip to London to see it live!
