The Sharper Your Knife, the Less You Cry: Love, Laughter and Tears at the World's Most Famous Cooking School by Kathleen Flinn
When I recommend fiction, this is one of the first titles that comes to mind. Set in the Orthodox Jewish community of Memphis, it is the women of the community who narrate the story. This book is a great read for a book club! Worth Reading, Book Club, Lady Auxiliary, Book Worth, Auxiliary Tova, Orthodox Jewish, Club Reading, Tova Mirvi, Jewish Community

The Violets of March by Sarah Jio
Made me want to become a bee keeper!
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern - The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern was such a beautiful read about a circus that comes to town randomly and is open only from dusk to dawn. Also, Celia and Marco are swept up in a challenge where they are unsure of all the rules. . . Written with the most beautiful imagery, I literally want to start wearing only black and white with a red accent piece.

The Night Circus - great read!!
The Fault in Our Stars ♥
The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

The Night Circus The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night. But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway—a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love—a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands. True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus performers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead. Written in rich, seductive prose, this spell-casting novel is a feast for the senses and the heart.
Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor Southern tobacco farmer whose cancer cells – taken without her knowledge-- revolutionized the world of medicine, saved lives and opened up the most important bioethics discussion of our time. This is important stuff. Glad I read it. Worth Reading, Book Club, Book Worth, Immortal Life, Henrietta Lack, Reading Lists, Rebecca Skloot, True Stories, Public Health
