2. Things You save in a Fire (by Katherine Center) -a wonderful novel that makes you think so it would be a great choice for book club meetings.

5. The Perfect Mother (Aimee Molloy) – the book is a psychological thriller. This novel, however, encompasses wider spheres as it deals with the themes of motherhood, family relationships, and the influence of the media on everyday life.
