Barefoot Contessa Foolproof by Ina Garten

When I grow up, I want to be Ina Garten. I want her confidence, her elegance, and her knack for making everything from lobster bisque to roast beef sandwiches look absolutely effortless. (And the house in the Hamptons would be nice, too.) Ina’s newest book, Foolproof, covers everything from menu planning to prepping in advance, and the recipes range from Elegant Slow-Roasted Filet of Beef with Basil Parmesan Mayonnaise to Salted Caramel Brownies. This is a great resource for any host wanting to make an impression on their guests this holiday season.

Something Missing by Matthew Dicks

Martin knows he's the best. Unlike his "smash and grab" counter-parts, Martin has a methodical and meticulous way of stealing. He only takes what will go unnoticed, therefore making him the same.

Like You’d Understand Anyway by Jim Shepard

At turns, Jim Shepard is funny, quirky, morbid and dark. This collection has a story for everyone, with characters ranging from Vikings to bickering brothers in the suburbs. Perhaps the strength of his storytelling is the oddity of his voice, and his willingness to explore physical and psychological landscapes that seem strange but are ultimately more familiar than one might expect.

Giovanni’s Room by James Baldwin

This book destroyed me, and I mean that in the best way possible. Beautiful language, an exquisitely heart-breaking love story, and gorgeous, wistfully descriptive passages about a Paris of a different time. Hands down, my favorite book ever, and my all-time favorite "romance."

The Illumination by Kevin Brockmeier

I fell in love with this book once I got over my green envy of its author. I would like to have come up with the notion: what if pain glowed with its light? In a series of wonderfully diverse stories, Brockmeier explores just that in a manner that's much like the light described: painful, but impossible to look away from till it's done.

The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Shaffer

This book has all the best ingredients for a good read: history, characters you wish were your friends, romance, and a built-in love of other literature. It had me ready to pack up and move to the island of Guernsey (now that the war is long over of course.) One of my favorite comfort novels.

The Encyclopedia of Sandwiches by Susan Russo

Like Joey on Friends, sandwiches are definitely my favorite food. I could probably live off them alone. Some of the all-stars included in these delicious pages: the Hoagie, Cubano, Monte Cristo, French Dip, Chicken Salad, Hamburger, BLT, Denver, Falafel Pita, and SO MUCH MORE. My only advice: avoid the Doughnut Sandwich on page 78. Everything else: two thumbs up.

essays are each based on different words relevant to Chinese culture. Hua shares
personal stories as well as political ones, and his essays are as hilarious as
they are insightful. A great read!
