New historical romance discoveries have been Sarah MacLean and Tessa Dare. Women's fiction--not a new discovery since I've been reading her for years, but Kristin Hannah's new book, THE NIGHTINGALE. (Pack tissues. Very, very moving.) I've only recently discovered Liane Moriarty's books and am enjoying them. As for old favorites, who can beat Jennifer Crusie and Jayne Ann Krentz. In Y.A., I raced through all the Harry Potters and Hunger Games books. I'm pretty much a book slut! In the best possible way, of course. (less)

First Star I See Tonight by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Dear Friends,

For many years now, my friend Helen and I have been leaving our husbands behind and taking off on our own worldwide adventures. We've walked barefoot on a freezing October day across a French tidal flat pocked with quicksand, me whining about being cold the whole time. We've climbed way too much of the Inca Trail in Peru, me whining about dying. And we've eaten fermented shark in... Read more of this blog post »

Quirky and courageous with an absolutely fascinating structure. A few elements of magical realism. This would be a terrific book club book. It will especially resonate with Midwesterners. (Not a romance.)

I keep this lovely book by my bed as a reminder that my yoga practice is about more than being able to a headstand. Which I can’t do and, frankly, don’t care about doing. So much wisdom inside its cover.

I just love Kristan Higgins’ author’s “voice.” She could write the phone book, and I’m sure I’d read it.
