Plant Style by Alana Langan & Jacqui Vidal

Close your eyes and visualize a lush, vibrant, greener-than-green jungle. Now get rid of the bugs and giant cats who want to eat you, lose the muggy, humid air, and add some cute pots and knotted plant hangers (see my review of Modern Macramé). Now open your eyes and see that you’re holding a copy of Plant Style, which, through its beautiful pictures, plant profiles, and care charts (including information on the water and light needs of the various plants) shows you how to curate and care for this jungle. - Megan

Watch Me Disappear by Janelle Brown

A tantalizing blend of investigative thriller and introspection into what it really means to know those you love. This is a perfect thriller of a beach read (even more appropriate as the opening scene is set at the beach!). The strong writing and exciting twists and turns make this a very enjoyable mystery and a great read if you loved Gone Girl or The Woman in Cabin 10. - Megan

Girl in Snow by Danya Kukafka

Danya Kukafka’s debut novel ticks so many of my good-read boxes: Beautifully written; well-paced; great character development; and then, more specifically, multiple points of view and intertwining story lines. Told from three distinct perspectives, Girl in Snow takes different paths to the same ending as each character passes by, circles around, and eventually collides with the others as this small Colorado town deals with the aftermath of the homicide of a local teen. - Megan

The Curse of the Boyfriend Sweater by Alanna Okun

Not just for crafters, Alanna Okun’s essays about life as a independent woman in the modern age are written from the heart. She explores timeless subjects from learning to live with yourself (literally and figuratively), to body image, facing fears and anxieties of all kinds, and (of course) fitting knitting and what it is to “be a crafter” into everyday life. Alanna is relatable and interesting, funny, and thoughtful. I like her and I think you will, too. - Megan

Pok Pok: The Drinking Food of Thailand by Andy Ricker

Holy fish sauce, this book is amazing. Because of it, my to-cook list has grown to include things like Tom Som Kai Baan (“Village Chicken” Soup) and Yam Won Sen (Glass Noodle Salad). Every page has an ingredient I’ve never heard of or a cooking technique I never thought I’d try. For someone like me whose favorite food growing up was mac and cheese, Pok Pok’s recipes are a wonderful journey into the land of Thai street food. - Megan
