A splash of all the best books we’re reading right now. – Steph + Jen

OUTLANDER

Diana Gabaldon

The Outlanders series, an eight-book saga turned Starz Network original series, is rich with passion, character development and historical details. Riddled with Scots, intrigue, time travel, magic and science, this is the story that started it all in 1991.

DEAR LIFE

Alice Munro

Reading Alice Munro is like sitting down with a good friend who is honest, wiser and full of insight. Her stories are refreshingly smart, impactful and resonate far beyond the page. She writes with heart and finds the beauty and grace in our best and worst moments.

THE SPIDER AND THE FLY

Claudia Rowe

A gripping true story of self-discovery and good

vs. evil, eighteen painstaking years — and eight proven murders — in the making, Rowe spins a twisted web between her real-life reporting of a serial killer and the meaning of murder to confront the past and overcome its demons.

GIRL, STOP APOLOGIZING

Rachel Hollis

Inspirational powerhouse Rachel Hollis offers up a shame-free strategy for embracing and achieving goals. She speaks about overcoming her own missteps and drives home a message that we’re enough as-is to begin moving toward what we want in life, today.

PRESENCE

Amy Cuddy

Amy Cuddy knows how to inspire. Using her own story about recovering from a brain injury during college, she proves that we can rise about our limitations – physical or otherwise – and be our best selves.  She changed my perception of a super hero, and that’s just a lead in.
