The Baker's Daughter - Sarah McCoy                                             Accidents of Marriage - Randy Susan Meyers

The Book of You - Claire Kendal                                                     Leaving Time - Jodi Picoult

Updated novel recommendations:

Tempting Fate - Jane Green                                                             The Girl Who Chased the Moon - Sarah Addison Allen

The House We Grew Up In - Lisa Jewell                                         The Gravity of Birds - Tracy Guzeman

The Silent Wife - A.S.A. Harrison                                                    The Magician's Lie - Greer Macallister



Well, since I don't have anything of my own (yet!) to share I thought I would list some of my favorite novels…this is not in any particular order. I recommend them all wholeheartedly equally!

Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte                                         The Husband's Secret - Liane Moriarty

Here on Earth - Alice Hoffman                                              Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn

A Thousand Splendid Suns - Khaled Hosseini                        Those Who Save Us - Jenna Blum

Left Neglected - Lisa Genova                                                 The Dinner - Herman Koch

The Story of Beautiful Girl - Rachel Simon                          Princesses Behaving Badly - Linda Rodriquez McRobbie

I could add so many more! Maybe what I'll do until I have works of my own to list here is periodically post novels that I encourage everyone to read.
