- 'It Ends with Us' by Colleen Hoover
This tale of first loves and domestic violence is thought-provoking and proves things just aren't that black and white.

4. 'Verity' by Colleen Hoover
Up next is a Colleen Hoover psychological thriller. A struggling writer is hired to finish an injured bestselling author's book series, but she finds her unfinished autobiography in her office which contains chilling admissions.
"The tale careens to a jaw-dropping conclusion that will keep readers thinking, discussing and debating Hoover's extremely clever and nuanced tale, as well as her deliciously intriguing and morally ambiguous characters (who may prove themselves to be not as ambiguous as originally thought) for a very, very long time," an Amazon reviewer says.
5. 'Atomic Habits' by James Clear
Change your habits with the help of this book. The author walks you through building good habits and breaking bad ones with simple behaviors.

8. 'The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo' by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Read "The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo" before the Netflix film comes out. Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo hires an unknown magazine reporter to write her memoir. Find out how their lives intersect.
"On top of this being a powerful book about race, sexuality, misogyny, and having to conform to societies norms, the true meaning I took from this book is that life is short, so damn short, and we shouldn't spend it pretending to be something we aren't," an Amazon reviewer says.
9. 'The Body Keeps the Score' by Bessel van der Kolk
Trauma expert Dr. Bessel van der Kolk explains how trauma reshapes both the body and brain and explores innovative treatments.
