We Were the Universe

Stream of consciousness is a literary device that doesn’t appeal to everyone, so buy for demand only. Steer this novel toward readers who loved Melissa Broder’s Death Valley, Jonathan Safran Foer’s Everything Is Illuminated, or Joyce Maynard’s The Bird Hotel.

The Wedding People

Witty dialogue is just a bonus in this engrossing read centering on complex women making life-changing decisions. Recommend to readers who enjoy Sally Rooney, Curtis Sittenfeld, or Elizabeth Berg.


Read-alikes for this original literary debut include The Adult by Bronwyn Fischer and We Are Water by Wally Lamb.

Hey, Zoey

In light of the proliferation of AI in all aspects of life, this is a timely read, sure to appeal to book groups that enjoy the work of Gary Shteyngart, Ottessa Moshfegh, or Dave Eggers.

Keep Your Friends Close

This twisty tale told by an unreliable narrator will appeal to fans of Gillian Flynn, Shari Lapena, and Paula Hawkins.

Meet the Benedettos

Austen fans will enjoy this new spin on what has become a franchise; think Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld, Sonali Dev’s Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors, or Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding.

The Fairytale Life of Dorothy Gale

This charming update of a classic should appeal to readers who enjoyed Curtis Sittenfeld’s Eligible or Cathleen Schine’s The Three Weissmanns of Westport.

Amazing Grace Adams

An utterly charming debut, sure to appeal to those who loved Gail Honeyman’s Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine or Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple.

Death Valley

Buy for demand only. For the literary sophisticate; read-alikes include the works of Banana Yoshimoto and Jeffrey Eugenides.
