Love on a Whim by Aubrey Mace

Six months out of law school, Rachel Pearce is completely disillusioned by her job hunt. Despite pounding the pavement with her Ivy League degree in hand, her job prospects are no brighter than the day she graduated. Then in a chance meeting with a former acquaintance, eccentric young millionaire Henry Walker, Rachel finds an unexpected opportunity: Henry is looking for a personal secretary. Swallowing her pride, Rachel sets aside her law firm aspirations for what she envisions as secretarial work—mountains of paperwork and filing.

But when she finds her most demanding duty to be daily cookie runs for her new boss, she’s baffled by her unconventional job responsibilities. As she’s pulled into Henry’s delightful whims, caught in a whirlwind of private jets and fancy dinners, Rachel finds herself inexplicably drawn to this handsome and charismatic man. But reality always has a way of intruding, and logic tells her that this adventure can’t last. When real life inevitably comes calling, Rachel must decide if she’s willing to trade in her dream of success in the courtroom for a chance at love.

Who Do You Love by Jennifer Weiner

An unforgettable story about true love, real life, and second chances…

Rachel Blum and Andy Landis are just eight years old when they meet one night in an ER waiting room. Born with a congenital heart defect, Rachel is a veteran of hospitals, and she’s intrigued by the boy who shows up alone with a broken arm. He tells her his name. She tells him a story. After Andy’s taken back to a doctor and Rachel’s sent back to her bed, they think they’ll never see each other again.

Rachel grows up in an affluent Florida suburb, the popular and protected daughter of two doting parents. Andy grows up poor in Philadelphia with a single mom and a rare talent for running.

Yet, over the next three decades, Andy and Rachel will meet again and again—linked by chance, history, and the memory of the first time they met, a night that changed the course of both of their lives.

A sweeping, warmhearted, and intimate tale, Who Do You Love is an extraordinary novel about the passage of time, the way people change and change each other, and how the measure of a life is who you love.

Love Letters by Debbie Macomber

Summer is a busy season at the inn, so proprietor Jo Marie Rose and handyman Mark Taylor have spent a lot of time together keeping the property running. Despite some folks’ good-natured claims to the contrary, Jo Marie insists that Mark is only a friend. However, she seems to be thinking about this particular friend a great deal lately. Jo Marie knows surprisingly little about Mark’s life, due in no small part to his refusal to discuss it. She’s determined to learn more about his past, but first she must face her own—and welcome three visitors who, like her, are setting out on new paths.

Twenty-three-year-old Ellie Reynolds is taking a leap of faith. She’s come to Cedar Cove to meet Tom, a man she’s been corresponding with for months, and with whom she might even be falling in love. Ellie’s overprotective mother disapproves of her trip, but Ellie is determined to spread her wings.

Maggie and Roy Porter are next to arrive at the inn. They are taking their first vacation alone since their children were born. In the wake of past mistakes, they hope to rekindle the spark in their marriage—and to win back each other’s trust. But Maggie must make one last confession that could forever tear them apart.

Allegiant by Veronica Roth

In Theaters: March 18, 2016

Directed by Robert Schwentke. Starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James, and Jeff Daniels.

Veronica Roth’s brave finale captures the spirit of her Dauntless heroine. Insurgent concluded with an old recording from Edith Prior–an ancestor of Tris discovered in those final pages–saying that once Divergents are in abundance, it will be time for the five factions to be released from their isolated lives in Chicago, out into the unknown world to rebuild it.

Tris and Tobias alternate as narrators in this final installment, and their respective world views and choices often splinter the peace between them. They agree, however, that they must leave the city and go beyond the fence where all the divisions fall away for a chance at a better life. Others wish to leave, too, but out of fear want to maintain the established factions; they call themselves the Allegiant.

The transformations these characters have undertaken since Divergent have prepared them for war, but many surprises await them on the battlefield. 

The BFG by Roald Dahl

In Theaters: July 1, 2016

Directed by Steven Spielberg! Starring Mark Rylance, Rebecca Hall, and Bill Hader.

The BFG is no ordinary bone-crunching giant. He is far too nice and jumbly. It’s lucky for Sophie that he is. Had she been carried off in the middle of the night by the Bloodbottler, or any of the other giants rather than the BFG she would have soon become breakfast. When Sophie hears that the giants are flush-bunking off to England to swollomp a few nice little chiddlers, she decides she must stop them once and for all. And the BFG is going to help her!

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

In Theaters: October 7, 2016

Directed by Tate Taylor. Starring Emily Blunt, Lisa Kudrow, and Luke Evans!

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.

And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?

Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them by J.K. Rowling

In Theaters: November 18, 2016

Directed by David Yates. Starring Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, and Colin Farrell.

Straight from the library at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, a book of magical creatures that no Harry Potter fan should be without!

A copy of FANTASTIC BEASTS & WHERE TO FIND THEM resides in almost every wizarding household in the country. Now Muggles too have the chance to discover where the Quintaped lives, what the Puffskein eats, and why it is best not to leave milk out for a Knarl.

Proceeds from the sale of this book will go to Comic Relief, which means that the dollars and Galleons you exchange for it will do magic beyond the powers of any wizard. If you feel that this is insufficient reason to part with your money, I can only hope that passing wizards feel more charitable if they see you being attacked by a Manticore.

Empowered by Nathan Cureton

A smattering of smoky remnants is all that remains of the once promising fire of success in the classrooms of East Crossroads Middle School. The teachers, each having entered the profession with blazing ambition, now struggle to protect their feeble flames from the billows of student indifference and waning motivation.

Within days of unpacking, Mrs. Kris Able, expert teacher turned school guidance counselor, is unintentionally thrown into the ashes of the mess. With wisdom and experience, Kris skillfully leads the smoldering teachers of East Crossroads on individual reflective journeys in classroom culture creation. From the burst bubble of a naively enthusiastic first year teacher to the authoritarian habits of an old, burnt-out science grump, from the too-cool-for-school football coach turned history teacher to the haughty theatrics of a straight-arrow doctor of mathematics, Counselor Kris instigates change, little by little, by teaching her colleagues four empowering principles of creating a classroom culture of success.

Empowered succinctly outlines universal guiding principles of creating a classroom culture of student success and then applies each in a vivid and entertaining narrative, complete with characters and scenarios teachers experience daily in their own schools. With identifiable characters, applicable lessons, and an enjoyable plot, Empowered’s beautiful blend of tips and tales is informative, entertaining and motivating.

Warm your hands and your heart by the swelling fire of Kris and her blossoming colleagues as they learn to create a classroom culture of student success.
