New Releases 5.5.15
A long-awaited memoir, a YA favorite and a new writer to watch make up Shelf Pleasure’s picks for the best new books of the week. Let us know what you’re reading!
Lancaster is a long-time favorite of Shelf Pleasure. Her books are honest, real and memorably funny. And how can we not relate to someone who spends all her hard-earned money on shoes and clothes?Now, Lancaster is a little older (and perhaps wiser) and as the realization dawns that she is officially middle aged, it’s time to figure out what she wants out of life. So begins a series of lessons from learning how to start a new business to studying Italian to riding a bike. Of course, no Lancaster memoir would be complete without an attempt at weight loss from a juice cleanse to a 5K. Come along for the ride, you won’t regret it!
This coming of age story focuses on Sydney, a young girl trying to figure out where she belongs. Her older brother Peyton has long been the family favorite but when his reckless behavior leads to a drunk-driving accident and a jail sentence, Sydney seems to be the only one more worried about the victim than her brother. Perhaps the place where you find love and acceptance isn’t always the place you expect.
