My Lucky Day picks
Hillbilly Elegy, by J.D. Vance audiobook read by the author. This book tells the true story of growing up in Appalachia, from Kentucky to the rust belt in Middletown, Ohio. Despite being born into regional, social, and class decline, J.D. eventually graduates from Yale Law school changing the path of his life. Ron Howard is set to direct the film Hillbilly Elegy for Netflix starring Glenn Close and Amy Adams as J.D.’s grandmother and mother.
Camino Island, by John Grisham This is not your typical Grisham novel. If you’re expecting a courtroom, get ready to be transported to Santa Rosa, FL, instead. Mercer Mann is on the job to infiltrate a popular bookstore suspected of buying rare, and illegally gained, first-edition manuscripts. A whole batch of priceless Fitzgerald manuscripts have been stolen from Princeton University’s vault! You can get caught up on this series just in time for the release of book two, Camino Winds, later this spring.
The Underground Railroad, by Colson Whitehead offers a new twist tackling an important topic. Cora and Caesar attempt to escape slavery in Virginia by utilizing the Underground Railroad. In this novel, the railroad is no mere concept; it’s actual engineers, conductors, trains and tracks deep underground. This book is being made into a series for Amazon to debut later in 2020.
Cutting for Stone, by Abraham Verghese This one made the book club rounds when it was published ten years ago. This book is a literary gem that tells the story of twins Marion and Shiva, born in Ethiopia to an Indian mother and a white father. Their father is a brilliant surgeon and the story intertwines Ethiopia and New York City. This saga has love, hate, brotherhood, political violence, and the science of medicine. Verghese is a doctor, and his writing heavily utilizes medicine to tell the story. As a bonus, foodies will enjoy the Ethiopian cooking that takes place in the novel. Cutting for Stone will stay with you for years!
