Yeah, a new Adrianna Trigiani book!  Her stories always include a big Italian family, which I love, and this one resides down the shore and involves a young girl trying to get into the music business and find her own way.  Love the time period too and the fashion!

Absolutely loved this book!  I have been telling friends ever since to just pick it up and start reading!  It is very timely and very insightful into the life of a Muslim family.  I learned so much about their culture while enjoying every page!

Published: Mariner Books - June 9th, 2015

A sweet, perfect classic!  I enjoy any novel that has to do with a bookshop but this was so much more than that.  It draws you in to a very human element and reminds you that things don't always work out the way you want.  You can be courageous despite this and become closer to others that share your same feelings. An Indie at heart!

A original novel that is on the onset a page turner!  For all lovers of a great mystery and mathematics while enjoying the backdrop of California and a family with many points of view.


Rebecca Schuman is a wonderful writer and at the same time so witty and enjoyable!  I love a good travel memoir and coming of age story!  The 90's references are spot on and often times hilarious and bring back so many memories of fashion and music!

I love how a little red address book can bring forth so many memories of time and place and the people in your life that have meant the most to you. Sofia Lundberg has written a character that we can fall in love with as well as her life and those that she loves.  A story of aging and life itself!

My coworker was nice enough to give me a copy of these amazing poems by Mary Oliver.  I love that I can pick it up and read a few a little at a time.  It is nice to savor them and really think about what she is describing.  It makes me want to take a long walk and really enjoy nature and have gratitude for all the beautiful things in life including the people I love.
