Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll
Hurray for the female driven thriller of the year! This book was a non-stop , page-turning thrill ride. Once I finished the book, the events that unfolded in the last 50 pages haunted me for months. The heroine, Ani Fanelli has my vote for most compelling and complicated character of the year. Is she a mastermind or an innocent victim? I still don’t know.

So You Have Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson
This is a fascinating exploration of modern media and public shaming. John Ronson has provided me so many dinner party conversation topics with this book. It’s a great conversation starter. Is Twitter the new Salem Witch trials?

Ashley’s War by Gayle Tzemach Lemmon
A wonderful book tracking the journey of the first female special operations unit in Afghanistan. The rigorous training, the treacherous conditions, the lengths they go to to obtain intelligence were all riveting. This book made me understand the critical role female soldiers play during war overseas. It answers a much debated question: Do women have a role in combat ? With a resounding YES.

Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee
Whether or not you enjoy a new version of Atticus Finch as an older Southern man, the sequel to
To Kill A Mockingbird is so well written. Harper Lee’s beautiful prose is crackling with the attitudes of budding civil rights activists of the early 1960’s. As a woman born and raised in the South, I was drawn into so many scenes of Scout questioning her father ‘s judgement. Even though this novel in over 50 years old, it addressed attitudes and prejudices that are still being struggled with in the American South.
