The Stories We Tell by Joanna Gaines

cr. Barnes & Noble

“This book is not an autobiography. I still have too much to learn and discover about myself, and I feel as though I am only halfway there. This book also is not a how-to, because I certainly don’t have all the answers. What I hope this book is for you is an invitation to come as you are. To join me, with a vulnerable and open heart, as we connect the chapters of our life stories, and figure out where we go next, learning to move forward from within.”

— Joanna Gaines, The Stories We Tell

I thoroughly enjoy watching Joanna Gaines in Fixer Upper and now she shares an emotional and inspiring story of her own. This authentic and vulnerable journey explores doubt, belief, and acceptance. Read Joanna’s moving story as she goes from insecurity to self-discovery while finding truth beyond the lies.

cr. Barnes & Noble

“Meet 2022’s most incomparable protagonist! This blockbuster debut set in 1960s California features the singular voice of Elizabeth Zott, a scientist whose career takes a detour when she becomes the star of a beloved TV cooking show.”

— Barnes & Noble

The Barnes & Noble Book of the Year obviously makes the list!

Elizabeth Zott is anything but an average woman. She is a chemist in the 1960s and her all-male team at Hastings Research Institute views equality very unscientifically. However, there is one who is different— Calvin Evans. He’s a lonely, brilliant, Nobel-prize nominated grudge-holder who just so happens to fall in love with Elizabeth’s mind. Her story takes a turn she never saw coming when  a few years later she is not only a single mother, but also the star of Supper at Six.

You might think she is just teaching women to cook, but she is actually on her way to changing the status quo.

— Barnes & Noble

You all know I love a historical novel. This thrilling and mysterious novel shows you two stories connected in a way you wouldn’t imagine. It’s 1629 and newly orphaned Mayken is headed to the Dutch East Indies on the Batavia— One of the greatest ships of the Dutch Golden Age. While she goes on adventures for mythical monsters, the true monsters are closer to her than she knows.

cr. Barnes & Noble

“A meet-cute? In New York City? Hold that train, and count us in!”

— Barnes & Noble

Name something better than meet-cutes in New York City? It’s very hard to do.

Franny Doyle is having one of the worst days imaginable. Not only has she been laid off, but also, the subway door ripped her favorite silk dress to shreds exposing her to half of lower Manhattan. This wouldn’t be a rom-com without a dashing stranger coming to the rescue with his (Gucci!) suit jacket. However, the stranger can’t seem to bolt away fast enough. Still not convinced this is the worst day ever? Another stranger posted this not-so-meet-cute online.

Franny and Hayes couldn’t be a worse match, which makes New Yorks obsession with their social media appearance increasingly difficult.
