Queenie
by Candice Carty-Williams

BRIDGET JONES’S DIARY meets AMERICANAH in Candice Carty-Williams’s disarmingly honest and bold debut novel, QUEENIE.

Who do you want to be?” A remarkable exploration of what it means to be a modern woman searching for meaning in today’s society, QUEENIE is a must-read timely novel.

Eight Hundred Grapes
Laura Dave

EIGHT HUNDRED GRAPES is escapist reading at its best because not only are there sun-dappled fields to picture, a dashing neighbor vying for Georgia’s attention, and behind-the-scenes winemaking (author Laura Dave took her wine research seriously!), there is also real heart.

All Fall Down
by Jennifer Weiner

Allison Weiss got her happy ending—a handsome husband, an adorable daughter, a job she loves, and the big house in the suburbs. But one magazine article on addiction shines a light on a problem she never realized she had and, ultimately, her seemingly idyllic life. A masterful and moving tale of one woman’s fall into addiction and her inspiring way back up, it’s easy to see why ALL FALL DOWN is one of Jennifer Weiner’s most celebrated works yet.

All Fall Down
Jennifer Weiner

From a #1 New York Times bestselling author comes her “best book yet” (Philadelphia Inquirer), a “compulsively readable” novel that shows “there’s no doubt Weiner knows how to deliver a certain kind of story, and well” (The New York Times Book Review).

Allison Weiss got her happy endinga handsome husband, an adorable daughter, a job she loves, and the big house in the suburbs. But while waiting in the pediatrician’s office, she opens a magazine to a quiz about addiction and starts to wonder…Is a Percocet at the end of the day really different from a glass of wine? Is it such a bad thing to pop a Vicodin after a brutal Jump & Pump class…or if your husband ignores you? She tells herself that the pills help her make it through her days…but what if her increasing drug use, a habit that’s becoming expensive and hard to hide, is turning into her biggest problem of all?

Hailed as “a witty, realistic criticism on the modern age” (Boston Herald), this remarkable story of a woman’s fall into addiction and struggle to find her way back up again is Jennifer Weiner’s most masterful, moving, and celebrated work yet.
