Harper Lee

Put down your books and take a moment to mourn literature’s ultimate one-hit wonder. Many readers consider it their all-time favorite book. To Kill a Mockingbird stands as one of the finest examples of enduring, endearing characters, and telling a story that means more than the surface events. May you rest in eternal peace, Nelle Harper Lee.

The Zero (weird, but worth reading)

image

The Zero by Jess Walter

Darkly comic 9/11 satire. Unwilling spy’s memory-impaired, swiss-cheesed double life.

We Are Called To Rise (Recommended)

books (1)

We Are Called To Rise by Laura McBride

Unbearable tragedies connect four diverse, decent people. Read it anyway.

Warning: I wept when this book ended, but in a good way.
