Looking for a new book? Here are Shelf Pleasure’s must-reads of the week.
Another new novel. Another Gillian Flynn comparison. But Thomas’s psychological thriller is the real deal, filled with twists and turns and an unexpected conclusion. Childhood friends reunite 10 years later in their hometown and find themselves searching for a killer they thought they found years ago. Could they have possibly sent the wrong man to death row?
“When are you settling down?” is a more than familiar refrain to many of us over at Shelf Pleasure. So of course Bolick’s book, which expounds upon the startling concept of choosing to remain single, was a must-read. Part history lesson (a fascinating look back at the smart, powerful women from the last century who paved their own way, such as Edith Wharton and Charlotte Perkins Gilman), part autobiography, Bolick demonstrates that this debate has roots that go way back—and encourages all women to choose the path that makes sense to them.
A murder mystery that’s fun and frivolous? It can be done. It’s 1937 and a woman is found dead wearing a gown stolen from the wardrobe department at Paramount Pictures run by Edith Head. Edith can’t cope with a scandal and prime suspect Lillian needs to clear her name. As the two team up to solve the mystery, they’ll have to dodge ego driven directors and slimy investigators all while encountering royalty from the Golden Era of Hollywood.
