The Late Bloomer's Revolution

The Late Bloomer's Revolution by Amy Cohen

Really, really loved this memoir! Anyone who has been discouraged with dating and not living the traditional life of marriage and kids at a certain time would appreciate this book. Cohen is as funny as she is insightful. She's incredibly likeable and I found myself rooting for her through the entire book.

Olive Kitteridge

Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout

I checked this out because it's a recent Pulitzer Prize winner for Fiction. Often times, prize winners don't hold my interest but this book was wonderful. It's written as several short stories about different characters; however, Olive Kitteridge is the tie that binds it all together. We get to see her character from different perspectives and through different situations through many years. I highly recommend this one!
