Or consider curling up with a few favorites from our team:

Is a thrilling mystery your cup of tea? Try Gone Girl, a 2012 crime thriller novel by Gillian Flynn, where economic woes, family issues, and relationships gone wrong are the name of the game. Not feeling like a bookworm today? Check out the 2014 film adaptation starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike instead!

Is romance the novel of the day? Have you tried the Bridgerton series by Julia Quinn yet? Made popular by the recent Netflix show, this book series provides readers with a look into Regency-era Europe. As a large, tight-knit family, the Bridgertons navigate high society together, battling through twists and turns, while mysterious Lady Whistledown stirs the pot with her newly released gossip newspaper. With a book for each child, readers can weave through the eight-book series at their own pace and experience life in 1810’s London.

How about a classic? Pick up Little Women by Louisa Mae Alcott, a classic coming-of-age novel that follows the four March sisters – Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy – through their passage from childhood to adulthood. The scene is set in Civil War-era America, where challenges abound for the March family as they face financial woes, navigate life together, and make new friends. And after reading the book, you can compare it with the numerous films it has inspired, from the 1933 version starring Katharine Hepburn as Jo to the 2019 adaptation by Greta Gerwig that puts a new spin on the story’s conclusion.
