Twelfth Avenue Reading List

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. It may be young adult, but this novel is getting major buzz among readers young and old alike. A quick read with plenty of twists and turns.

Yes Please by Amy Poehler. A collection of stories from one of the funniest women in show biz. I will devour pretty much any source of entertainment Amy Poehler dishes out, so I’m looking forward to sinking my teeth into her first book.

The Fat Radish Kitchen Diaries by Ben Towill and Phil Winser. A cookbook from the owners of one of my all-time favorite restaurants in NYC, which employs “uncomplicated, slightly British, vegetable-focused cooking” to create “perfect combinations of fresh, seasonal, good-for-you ingredients and unfussy, crowd-pleasing dishes.” #NEED

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. I’m not usually one for war novels, but this one sounds too good to pass up. A “deeply moving” tale of morality and survival in Nazi-occupied France, All the Light We Cannot See and its cast of characters sound somewhat reminiscent of The Goldfinch, which I loved. Regardless, I’ll be loading this onto my Kindle for my next long read.
