This quaint book of poetry is currently all the rave, and has probably reached the “to read” lists of many. It sure has for our poets. The poems deal with how to find beauty and healing within the bitterness of life. This is a good read for anyone in need of healing. In a sense, we all are.

2. Tessa Hadley’s Bad Dreams and Other Stories

This collection is also on our radar. A common theme throughout the collection seems to be finding the extraordinary within the simple, like the history of a length of fabric, for example. This is for the reader who enjoys picking up fragments and placing them into a whole.

This book won Goodreads’ best book of 2016. What is it about this book that got it the most votes? Perhaps dealing with guilt, a common and relatable human emotion, is what draws in the book’s readers, especially when revealing weakness in relationships that seem unbreakable.

Also up there on Goodreads’ 2016 list is Greenwood’s novel. The title definitely draws us in. A synopsis tells us that the daughter of a meth dealer falls in love with one of her father’s thugs. Beware again: plot twist!
