Book: Olivier by Terry Coleman

Recommended by: Joseph

Famed and acclaimed British actor Laurence Olivier (1907-1989) was an actor to his core, a self-identification which guided him confidently along the path of his life's work. But it also meant that his true personality, underneath his talent for professional deception, was known by only a few. Given unprecedented access to the remnants of Olivier's life (his effects, his letters, and his family) to cut through the miasmas of previous biographies, Terry Coleman has crafted a great and moving opus on the life of an equivocating genius.

Book: Wither by Lauren Destefano

Recommended by: Natalie

When curing the common cold has unforeseen consequences, Rhine is kidnapped to become the young bride to the son of a wealthy geneticist. Will Rhine escape this new life to find her twin brother or can Linden convince Rhine that his world is beautiful, and his love is real?

This dystopia wrenched my heart as I found myself rooting for opposite endings. The entire trilogy is specifically eccentric, with memorable characters and a story worth sharing.

Book: Ordinary Trauma: A Memoir by Jennifer Sinor

Recommended by: Karen

Sinor writes eloquently about her life describing the events as ordinary yet sometimes traumatic. Her choice of words is clear, her writing concise. As I read, memories in my life emerged with the feelings associated with them. Even though our circumstances are very different, I found I could understand what she was saying by the feeling it evoked inside me. I wanted to savor each word, so I read slowly, sometimes rereading parts to savor as one would a fine meal.

Perception is also key as she remembers an event one way but her mother remembers it differently. She writes: "I have come to understand how the past is a key to the present--how a story, the way we shape a story, tells us little about then and everything about now. In this way, writing memoir makes us more compassionate-toward ourselves and others."
