Our February Guest Editor Sandhya Menon not only writes great books, but she also reads them. We got a sneak peek into the books she loves and the books she can’t wait to read next – be right back, we’re adding all of them to our TBR pile.
The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella
Sandhya Menon is a big fan of Sophie Kinsella’s books “because they made me attempt writing romantic comedies.”
Lawyer Samantha Sweating has just made a mistake that ensures she’ll never make partner at her firm. Acknowledging her failure, she takes a train into the middle of nowhere and when she stops at a house to ask for directions, they mistake her for an applicant for the housekeeper position they’re hiring. When she gets the job, she learns more about herself than she ever imagined.
The Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella
Another favorite of Sandhya’s from #1 New York Times bestselling author Sophie Kinsella, The Shopaholic series focuses on Becky Bloomwood who has a serious shopping problem. Bored by her job and in a ton of debt, Becky must turn her life around if she wants any kind of future.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
Sandhya thinks that To All the Boy’s I’ve Loved Before is “the perfect, escapist YA romance” and we couldn’t agree more.
Instead of being honest and telling her crushes how she really feels, Lara Jean puts all of her feelings into letters, composing four love letters she’ll never send. But then her sister sends them in order to get Lara Jean to live life, resulting in a fake relationship that may just end up turning into something Lara Jean never anticipated.
Less by Andrew Sean Greer
“It’s slyly witty and incisive in a way that makes me wish I had half that talent!”
This Pulitzer Prize-winning novel features a novelist about to turn 50 who escapes his life by accepting every invitation he has received. When Arthur starts traveling the world attending to his invitations, he falls in love and gets caught in an adventure that will change him completely.
What Sandhya Menon’s reading next:
Infinity Son by Adam Silvera
“I’m dying to read Infinity Son by Adam Silvera. It’s going to be my reward for meeting one of my deadlines!”
Emil and Brighton are two brothers who have grown up in New York City and have spent their young years idolizing the vigilante group called Spell Walkers. While Brighton wishes he could be a heroic fighter in the battle against specters, Emil wishes for a world where all the fighting would cease. What the boys don’t know is that Emil is about to make a move that will change both of their lives forever.
