When’s the last time you sat down to just relax and read a great book? Seriously—as things go nowadays, there is a continuous flow of exhausting seasonal theme’s urging you to sacrifice your time for “spring cleaning” or obtaining the perfect “beach body”, even “leaf peeping“. Here at TOLL our priority is always offering you guidance on how to live a healthy life, filled with love and excitement. But sometimes that means telling you (even begging you) to just stop everything and make time for yourself already. Grab a good book and just relax. Immerse yourself in another world.
Here are a few title suggestions we think you’re going to love.
Man Called Ove
Meet Ove. He’s a curmudgeon—the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him “the bitter neighbor from hell.” But must Ove be bitter just because he doesn’t walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the time? Behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. Beautifully written, effortless to read, and utterly hilarious, this novel will became your new favorite.
The Woman in Cabin 10
by Ruth Ware
Ruth Ware is a force. From the moment we read her enthralling debut novel In a Dark, Dark Wood we knew she was special. And now she’s back with The Woman in Cabin 10, an equally suspenseful and haunting novel—this time, set at sea. With all the twists and turns we crave in a great mystery, Ruth Ware delivers another truly gripping novel.
by Kathy McKeon
An endearing coming-of-age memoir by a young woman who spent thirteen years as Jackie Kennedy’s personal assistant and occasional nanny—and the lessons about life and love she learned from the glamorous first lady. A rare and engrossing look at the private life of one of the most famous women of the twentieth century, Jackie’s Girl is also a moving personal story of a young woman finding her identity and footing in a new country, along with the help of the most elegant woman in America.
I Found You
by Lisa Jewell
For those of us suffering from the withdrawals of Big Little Lies here comes our relief. In a windswept British seaside town, single mom Alice Lake finds a man sitting on the beach outside her house. He has no name, no jacket, and no idea how he got there. Against her better judgment, she invites him inside and so begins this rousing suspense novel. If two decades of secrets, a missing husband, and a man with no memory don’t get your intrigued, we aren’t sure how to get you excited.
Lily and the Octopus
The magic of this novel is in the read, and we don’t want to spoil it by giving away too many details. We can tell you that this is a story about that special someone: the one you trust, the one you can’t live without. For Ted Flask, that someone special is his aging companion Lily, who happens to be a dog. Lily and the Octopus reminds us how it feels to love fiercely, how difficult it can be to let go, and how the fight for those we love is the greatest fight of all. Grab a box of tissues, and a comfy seat on the couch, this book will sweep you up after the first page.
