There is a lot to love in Shelton’s charming mystery series set in Scotland. Edinburgh makes a delightful setting–even when a murder is involved. And The Cracked Spine bookshop is a literary lover’s dream. Delaney Nichols decides her mundane life needs some adventure and before she knows it’s, she’s living in Edinburgh and working at The Cracked Spine. Delaney loves the eccentric cast of characters coming into the shop…and the sexy bartender with the hot accent who works across the street. But when her boss’s sister is murdered, Delaney needs to figure out who happened if she is to keep living her exciting new life.
Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir clearly struck a chord with millions of people looking for more meaning in life (full confession: we took up yoga and meditation after reading the book). This collection will inspire many more when they read the life changing stories of these individuals. From the man who finally embraces his sexuality to the woman who finds new love to those dealing with illness and loss, this is a powerful look at what can happen when you search for your best self.
We’re curious to check out this much talked about new book on an all too popular activity in this day and age: public shaming. Whether it’s a bad joke gone awry or a too-honest opinion shared in a public forum (ahem, Facebook, ahem), when the mob gets ahold of this person, the consequences can be devastating. We’ve seen it happen again and again. Ronson shares the stories of those who have been shamed and reflects on the part we all play in this scary new world.
