The book also covers Jacqueline’s rejection of a life-path that led her to Kennedy and the White House and how after his death, she sought a very different life. It’s a wonderfully descriptive read for those interested in learning more about her life.

SNL alumni and Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler opens up in her first book. As expected, Poehler’s book is riddled with comedy and chapters like “Treat Your Career Like a Bad Boyfriend” and “The Robots Will Kill Us All”. It’s another great autobiography that’s made our list and is definitely worth a read.

Rose has an obsession with homonyms (like her own name), which is why she gives her dog the name Rain. Rose has her own routines, obsessions and rules that are not always understood by others. When a storm hits and Rain goes missing, Rose has to break her routine to search for her dog. We definitely recommend this sometimes-heartbreaking tale told from Rose’s point-of-view.

Like Robinson’s previous novels Gilead and Home, Lila takes place in Gilead, Iowa where Lila, a homeless woman, wanders into a small church and becomes the wife of minister John Ames. As she begins her new life, she remembers people from her past like Doll—the young drifter who rescued her from a neglectful home when she was younger. While her husband judges those she loves, Lila tries to reconcile the life of her prior hardship with the Christian worldview. This novel explores a woman’s attempt to explore a new world while not forgetting her very different past.
