Hepola first tasted beer at seven, got drunk at twelve, and fueled a love affair with alcohol that lasted through her thirties. Alcohol made her feel funnier, fiercer, freer, and like a better writer. It comforted her until its magic faded. Blackouts swallowed whole swathes of her memory. Hepola's strength is in not presenting her sobriety as a simple moral awakening. With her sharp and darkly funny prose, she tells an electric story of loving booze and relearning how to be awake and alive without it. One of my favorite books of the past year. ~ Reviewed by Cathy Taylor

I haven't read Eat, Pray, Love (or anything else by Gilbert), so I was exactly sure what to expect. I absolutely loved this book. Gilbert is witty, smart, funny and overall has such a likable presence with her words. Her anecdotes are well placed and well said, with the tone of the book offering up a real feeling of "you can do it." I feel genuinely inspired after reading this book and I wasn't even looking for inspiration. While it's geared towards people who are more creative (in the traditional sense) I recommend this book to anyone; whether they are looking for inspiration or not, whether they're pursuing a creative path or not, Big Magic is simply a great read for all. ~ Reviewed by Misha D'Andrea

Thoroughly enjoyable, each little essay is filled with wisdom and is equally charming, humorous, and filled with emotion. Written over 25 years ago the material remains as relevant today as it did in 1989. One of my favorite reads this year. Lovely and light-hearted, I couldn't recommend it more! ~ Reviewed by Misha D'Andrea

Introspective and upbeat, this mother of five and obituary writer from Alaska offers the perfect blend of humor and compassion as she tackles the daily complexities of our universal existence. Lende writes like your best friend talking to you. A lovely gift for someone you know and appropriate one for someone you don't. ~ Reviewed by Shanti Mayer
