The Books You Must Read

Life is cuckoo these days, amIright? I recommend everyone stop watching and listening to the news for at least a week to give yourself a freaking break. Too much information is seriously messing up our nervous systems. Instead of reading the news, read these instead:


I am going to admit that I was not a chick-lit fan, ok? I usually don’t pick up books about relationships and instead gravitate toward Michael Connelly and sub-sections of Michael Connelly.

However, Kelly Harms has changed my mind.

It’s just too fun reading these books to hold onto my cynicism. What she does exceptionally well is write about how women relate to themselves and are there for each other through unanticipated circumstances.

Her new book, The Overdue Life of Amy Byler is out!

Is she a friend? Yes. Does she write hilarious, touching stories with characters I love spending time with? Yes! A thousand times yes! Does Kirkus Reviews think her writing is awesome? Yes!


If you don’t believe me, check out her first two books, listed above: The Matchmakers of Minnow Bay and The Good Luck Girls of Shipwreck Lane.

You can see a short clip of her talking here about her first book here:

The Overdue Life of Amy Byler is due out April 1st, but you can pre-order on amazon. Happy reading!
