April Book Club

We've got two awesome but very different books for you this month. While both books take you on a fun, fast paced ride, that's about where the similarities end. However, we loved both of these books and think you will too!


1. Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple

I can't believe we haven't already told you guys about this book! It's been very popular - and for good reason. This novel is a quirky, fun ride with unforgettable characters (though not necessarily likable characters) and a unique plot. It isn't a traditional first person or third person read, which makes it all the more fun to experience. Grab your favorite drink, find a chair outside and relax with this book.

2.  I am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes

Wow, this book is a long, twisty, edge of your seat read. The only reason I put it down was to go to sleep but I very well could've stayed up reading this well into the night. I Am Pilgrim is an extremely ambitious (and successful) novel that weaves together action, espionage, murder, politics, terrorism and some big life themes. Pick it up but don't expect to be able to put it down!

November Book Club

We're huge readers here at Sona and have amassed a large list of books on our must-read lists. Here's a quick rundown of what we're reading this month! 




1. 10% Happier by Dan Harris

If you're feeling a little ragged from the rat race this book is a great read. Dan Harris takes us on his own journey to mindfulness while making the principles he learned easily accessible to the average, super busy person. After reading this I did indeed feel 10% happier!

2. Winter Street by Elin Hillenbrand

I happened upon this book while browsing the aisles at my local bookstore and picked it up - and couldn't put it down for the rest of the afternoon. Erin Hillebrand weaves a heart warming story about a close-knit but also slightly dysfunctional family and what happens one Christmas Eve. It's a quick read with engaging characters in a cute, holiday setting. 





3. Yes Please by Amy Poehler

Amy Poehler has been my true love since her first days on Park and Rec and after reading great books from Sona's other lady loves, Tina Fey and Mindy Kaling, I'm expecting great things from Amy's book. High expectations but I don't think I'll be disappointed.

4. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

I think I'm probably the only person who hasn't read this yet - it's received a Pulitzer Prize and many other awards so I should probably make some moves. I'm not even intimidated by the fact that it's 700+ pages - BRING IT ON. After all those midnight Harry Potter book releases, I think I can handle it.
