Top Shelf: Reading Lists for 2024

We've got big reading goals for 2024, and we want to share some of our lists with you!

Fay: One of our favorite authors, Christina Lauren, has a new book coming out in May 2024, titled The Paradise Problem. According to their website, it's the story of a "buttoned-up heir of a grocery chain and his free-spirited artist ex as they fake their relationship in order to receive a massive inheritance." Note: the last time I preordered a book on Amazon, they adjusted my purchase price to reflect the lowest price available since I had placed my order. Nice surprise!

Abby Jimenez, another favorite, has a book coming out in April 2024. Just for the Summer is another romance featuring a cursed guy and a traveling nurse who end up together for a summer in Minnesota.

In nonfiction, I've got Never Enough: When Achievement Culture Becomes Toxic--and What We Can Do About It. This New York Times bestseller by Jennifer Wallace was released in 2023 and addresses the pressure on students to succeed and the disastrous results.

Samantha: I am also excited to read The Paradise Problem and Just for the Summer! My 2024 goal includes Ann Patchett's Tom Lake. This is her most recent book and it takes place in 2020 during the early months of COVID. With her three grown daughters at home from college, a mother retells the story of her captivating, mesmerizing and unlikely life before marrying their father and starting a family.

At the top of my list is also You, With A View by Jessica Joyce. It includes a enemies-to-lovers trope with a long road trip that is sure to bring tension, emotion and discovery.

Go As a River by Shelley Read is about a young girl growing up on a peach farm surrounded by wilderness and her family — mostly troubled men. It's an emotional story that comes highly recommended.
