1. Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert
2. The Danish Way of Parenting by Joelle Alexander and Iben Dissing Sandahl
3. Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes
4. Two Turns from Zero:  by Stacey Griffith
5. Startup by Doree Shafrir
6. Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, & Finding Joy by Sheryl Sandberg & Adam Grant

Notes from Caroline:
Big Magic was the first “self-help genre” book I’ve read and was a little hesitant to do so,
but this book was so highly regarded and Elizabeth Gilbert is such a relatable writer,
I figured I couldn’t go wrong. Big Magic is a breath of fresh air, inspiring you at any
stage of your creative endeavor (even if it’s just a sliver of an idea in your head.) She talks about shaking off self-doubt, moving past the excuses and just doing it – whatever “it” may be.
It’s a book that I will read every few years to reignite the creative fire within!

Notes from Charity:
Two Turns from Zero has been a great way to kick start my summer fitness goals.
I follow Stacey on instagram and then reading her book it’s now like we are
really good “friends!” She is one inspiring athlete and leader.

FICTION | MEMOIRS | JUST FOR FUN
7. Everywhere That Mary Went by Lisa Scottoline
8. The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
9. A Man Called Ove: A Novel by Fredrik Backman
10. Born a Crime by Trevor Noah
11. Rich People Problems by Kevin Kwan
12. Grocery by Michael Ruhlman

Notes from Ali:
Although it’s not a new book, A Man Called Ove is a book that myself & a few girlfriends
are reading together at the same time — sort of like a book club but not as dedicated — ha!
It’s been on the New York Times best seller list & was made into a film about a year ago.
I’ve read wonderful reviews & am excited to dive in!

Notes from Amber:
I read The Glass Castle a few years ago and couldn’t put it down. Jeannette Walls, one of
four kids born to brilliant yet unfit parents, tells the fascinating story of her childhood
in a warm, yet straight-forward tone. It left me in awe of her resilience, love and loyalty
to her close-knit yet dysfunctional family. Soon to be a major motion picture starring
Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts!
