Emily Henry recommends
The Summer of Songbirds (2023)
Kristy Woodson Harvey
"The Summer of Songbirds is a warm, hopeful story of friendship, love, and second chances. Reading this book genuinely feels like sipping iced tea with your best friends on a hot summer day. Put this in your beach bag immediately."
Much Ado about Nada (2023)
Uzma Jalaluddin
"Much Ado About Nada is the contemporary take on Persuasion that I've been waiting for. I've been a huge fan of Uzma Jalaluddin's since her debut novel, but this one has become my favorite. Nada is feisty, complicated, and wholly relatable, and watching her love story with Baz unfold gave me butterflies at times and squeezed my heart tight at others. As ever, Jalaluddin expertly balances explorations of family, faith, and love in a smart and authentic way. I am such a fan."
Between Us (2023)
Mhairi McFarlane
"She's so ridiculously talented . . . consider this recommendation my personal gift to you and your life."
The Last Tale of the Flower Bride (2023)
Roshani Chokshi
"The Last Tale of the Flower Bride is an intoxicating fever dream, an irresistibly seductive fairytale. I've never read anything like it. Chokshi's mastery of her craft is on fully display. This book will leave you utterly spellbound."
Back In A Spell (2023)
(Witches of Thistle Grove, book 3)
Lana Harper
"I am happily and completely under the spell of The Witches of Thistle Grove."
Before I Let Go (2022)
(Skyland, book 1)
Kennedy Ryan
"Kennedy Ryan pours her whole soul into everything she writes, and it makes for books that are heart-searing, sensual, and life affirming. We are lucky to be living in a world where she writes."
