The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman

“M.L. Stedman, a spectacularly sure storyteller, swept me to a remote island nearly a century ago, where a lighthouse keeper and his wife make a choice that shatters many lives, including their own. This is a novel in which justice for one character means another’s tragic loss, and we care desperately for both. Reading The Light Between Oceans is a total-immersion experience, extraordinarily moving.” —Monica Ali

The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman

This is a beautifully written debut novel set on a remote island off Western Australia in 1918. From time to time, I’d come across a sentence or paragraph that stopped me in my tracks, and I’d have to read it over several times to absorb its beauty of language. This is the perfect book group book. Moral decisions and consequences abound. It’s complicated, layered, and it stayed with me for a long time. I couldn’t help but sympathize with each of the characters.

Brain on Fire by Susannah Cahalan

Cahalan was 24, with a promising career and relationship, when her brain violently rebelled against her, baffling doctors and leaving her fighting for her life and sanity. Both medical mystery and astonishing story of familial devotion, this is also Cahalan’s attempt to recreate a time she barely remembers, her honesty makes this is a startling, powerful read that I could not put down.

Canal House Cooks Every Day by Christopher Hirsheimer & Melissa Hamilton

I’m pretty sure these two women are living the life of my dreams. (Certainly, their food is the stuff of my dreams.) Friends Christopher and Melissa worked in the food world for many years (as food stylists, recipe directors, and photographers) before starting their own publication, Canal House. The Canal House Cooking series, published three times a year, is simply sensational and I covet every issue. So imagine my enthusiasm when this, their first big cookbook, was released! It is beautiful, inspiring, delicious, and everything I hoped it would be. I can’t imagine a more lovely gift for a home cook.

Because I Said So by Ken Jennings

Did your mom ever tell you not to swallow your gum because it would stay in your stomach for seven years? Ever wonder if that was true? In his new book, Jennings, the witty, charming Jeopardy! champ, gets to the bottom of the old wives’ tales your parents told you and uncovers the truth. This is such a delightful book, perfect for those who like to laugh and learn at the same time. And if you’re giving it to someone who has kids, this is a great read, so they can lie informatively, and if you’re giving it to someone who doesn’t have kids, they can undermine their friends who do!

Zooborns: The Next Generation by Andrew Bleiman

If you need the perfect gift for anyone who loves animals, this is it. Each page features a different adorable baby animal, from the incredibly rare, like the Sumatran Tiger, to the far more common, like the surprisingly dainty Caribbean Octopus (really, they’re darling). This book is almost overwhelming in its cuteness, and is guaranteed to produce squeals of joy.
