How to Be Fine: What We Learned from Living by the Rules of 50 Self-Help Books

Jolenta Greenberg and Kristen Meinzer

Greenberg and Meinzer know something about self-help books. In each episode of their podcast By the Book, they take a look at a different self-help book, following its specific instructions, rules, and advice to the letter, from Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus to The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up to French Women Don’t Get Fat. Covering a wide range of topics from diets, relationships, and clutter to money management, meditation, saving the world, and preparing to die, the duo sort their results into three categories: things that worked, things that didn’t work, and things they wished more self-help books would recommend. An honest and humorous debut.

In Five Years

Rebecca Serle

After Manhattan lawyer Dannie Cohan nails an important interview (and later accepts her boyfriend's marriage proposal), she goes to sleep knowing she is right on track to achieve her five-year plan. But when she wakes up, she's suddenly in a different apartment, with a different ring on her finger, and beside a very different man. It's the same night--December 15--but 2025, five years in the future. After a very intense hour, Dannie wakes again, back in 2020. She can't shake what has happened. It certainly felt like more than a dream, but she isn't the kind of person who believes in visions. She tries to forget about it--until 4 1/2 years later, when she meets the very same man from her long-ago vision. A striking and moving love story from the author of The Dinner List (2018).

Revolver Road: A Harper McClain Mystery

Christi Daugherty

Savannah crime reporter Harper McClain is hiding out on Tybee Island after receiving a phone call warning her that someone wanted her dead. Her only escape is her work at the newspaper, where the hottest story in town is the disappearance of Xavier Rayne. The singer had a hit album on his hands when he vanished. He's run away before, so everyone expects him to come home--until his body washes up with two bullet holes in it. As Harper digs deeper into the case, the threats against her life return. The phone call she received was very real. A killer from her past is coming for her. An exhilarating new mystery from the author of A Beautiful Corpse (2019).
