You Read Gone Girl, Now What - The Dinner, Herman Koch

Too Good to Be True, But Is - The Glass Castle, Jeannette Walls
In this memoir, Jeannette Walls tells the true story of her vagabond childhood with an alcoholic father and a mother who would rather paint than purchase food for her family. From West Virginia to Phoenix, and everywhere in between, she tells her story with nothing but love for her parents.
