A new month is upon us, and we’re not slowing down on our resolution to read more this year. We’re feeling inspired by all the motivational, empowering books we read in January, but this month we’re seeking out a little more humor and love—plus some introspective and heartwarming tales. Here are the seven books we can’t wait to read this February. Let us know what you’re currently reading or what books you’re hoping to crack open using #GGBookClub!
1) “The Nightingale,” Kristin Hannah: After reading “Unbroken” last month, we can’t stop reading about World War II. This fictitious story is topping our list—as longtime fans of Hannah’s women-centric novels, we’re excited to read her latest!
2) “Big Little Lies,” Liane Moriarity: At first glance, it’s a story about suburbia and picturesque families—but once you dive in, there’s a murder mystery involved. The perfect read for a beachy (or snowy) spring trip!
3) “The History of Love,” Nicole Krauss: Since February is the month of love, it’s only appropriate that we read something romantic—Gisele Toueg mentions its “absolute belief in the uninterruption of love.” Swoon!
4) “I Was Told There’d Be Cake,” Sloane Crosley: We all need a little humor in our lives—and a collection of essays about the misadventures of a 20-something in New York City is sure to make us giggle!
5) “The Story of Edgar Sawtelle,” David Wroblewski: Published over five years ago, this is not a new novel—but it’s a stunning coming-of-age tale that’s not to be missed.
6) “One Plus One,” Jojo Moyes: The New York Times best-selling author brings us another wonderful page-turner. A beautifully written story about a family’s eccentric journey, this one will warm your soul—and possibly prompt a few happy tears.
7) “My Life in France,” Julia Child: A soaring love story—not only about Julia and her husband Paul, but also about Julia’s passionate affair with food. We can’t wait to learn more about the legendary cook!
