See You in the Piazza by Frances Mayes

In her latest book, Frances Mayes encourages her reader to travel with an open mind. The best parts of Italy, she urges, are found when you least expect them. Arranged geographically with authentic recipes sprinkled throughout, this is a book to to open at random and explore leisurely. A great way to get ready for your own Italian adventure--whether it's in a few weeks or many years away. - Emma

Troubling Love by Elena Ferrante

In case you haven't heard, Ferrante is brilliant and you should read everything she's written. Troubling Love is a whirlwind mystery that delves deep into my personal favorite topic, the relationship between a mother and daughter. Ferrante's use of language is unparalleled as she writes of a daughter obsessed with finding out who her mother really was in the days following her death. - Emma

Cleopatra by Stacy Schiff

In this captivating account of one of history's most brilliant rulers, Pulitzer Prize-winning Stacy Schiff introduces us to a Cleopatra we have not met before and, in this case anyway, truth is far more interesting than fiction. I've been talking about it for years and can't see myself not bringing up this amazing woman in conversation any time soon. Can't recommend it enough! - Emma

MEM by Bethany C. Morrow

Looking for more speculative fiction? I highly recommend Morrow's unique, character driven debut novel. In an alternative 1920s, memories are extracted from people and exist as a sort of clone stuck in time, reliving their scene until they fade away. Powerful and insightful, this is the type of book you'll find yourself thinking about months after you've finished. - Emma
