The Bride Test, by Helen Hoang

Staff Pick

Rarely have I seen a book depict a relationship as beautifully and viscerally as Helen Hoang has here.  Not only does she exquisitely capture the feelings of a blossoming romance--she makes the reader fall in love with her characters, characters that have the depth, complexities, and nuances of real people. It's impossible not to end up rooting for them.

Gravity is The Thing, by Jaclyn Moriarty

Staff Pick

Moriarty's stunningly beautiful adult debut novel explores the self-help world, female sexuality, friendship, family, and love in a tender, witty, realistic manner. There are many things to discuss about this book, but what struck me most was the grieving process woven so intricately throughout the narrative. How do you go about grieving the loss of, well, anything--a marriage, a disappeared brother, a one-night stand, the end of The Guidebook, the end of friendships? Gravity is the Thing is a gravity-defying feat that tackles all of this.
