Giada’s Feel Good Food by Giada De Laurentiis. I could (and do) spend hours in the cookbook section of Powell’s Books, but I am rarely compelled to purchase anything due to the literally thousands of recipes available on the Internet. This cookbook is an exception. After getting it home, I read it cover to cover (like a novel!) and cannot wait to start putting it to use in my kitchen. Don’t be surprised if you see recipes adapted and featured here on TA in the near future.

I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This: How to Ask for the Money, Snag the Promotion, and Create the Career You Deserve by Kate White. As we approach the new year, resolutions and personal growth are at the top of my mind. This book might just be the motivation I need to take my career to the next level. Add to cart, please!

The Valley of Amazement by Amy Tan. New York Times bestselling author, Amy Tan returns with a family saga of fate and identity that moves from lavish parlors of Shanghai courtesans to the mountains of a remote Chinese village. A deep narrative of family secrets, the legacy of trauma and the connections between mothers and daughters.

The Darlings by Cristina Alger. Former Goldman Sachs analyst, attorney and daughter of a Wall Street financier, Cristina Alger gives a unique glimpse into the highest ranks of New York society.
