I've always secretly shipped Jo and Laurie, and this book delivered.
A noir poem set in downtown Cairo, The Apartment in Bab el-Louk is a vignette of observations and thoughts of a recluse who peeps through their window at men yelling in the street or scurries through their neighborhood when needed.
A magical retelling of The Goose Girl.
It's part coming-of-age, part feminine awakening.
Surprising page-turner about mother-daughter grifters, family drama, thriller, murder, and revenge.
A fantastic read that takes you on an emotional roller coaster, Everything I Never Told You is one part thriller, one part human study.
Chemistry is one of those books that come wrapped in a wry, quirky package, but underneath it all is a story deep and, oddly, poignant. A great read for anyone, not just doctoral students or women, but I think those groups will find it hits home a little harder.
The Library of Lost and Found is a sort of coming-of-age story, but for a woman in her 40's.
