Part memoir, part guide, What Doesn’t Kill You is an exceptionally written and well-researched exploration of what it means to live with a chronic illness. Miller takes a deep dive into the intricacies of being diagnosed with a forever sickness, and offers insight into the ins and outs of navigating the often unforgiving American healthcare system. I left this book with a new understanding of myself and my fellow chronically-ill friends: a diagnosis isn’t the end of your life, but rather a new beginning and opportunity to find joy and gratitude in unexpected ways. I’d recommend this book to anyone with a body. ~ Reviewed by Madison Gallup

Fredrik Backman is an author like no other. Anxious People is a book about a robbery turned hostage situation involving some of the most stubborn and absurd characters I’ve ever read about. When you scratch the surface, however, you’ll find an endearing and entirely wholesome story about humanity and our shared struggles and triumphs. Backman has somehow crafted a story which made me laugh out loud one minute and shed a tear the next: this was one of the most enjoyable books I’ve read in a while. ~ Reviewed by Madison Gallup

A compelling and character-driven mystery filled with unexpected twists and turns, Hillier’s newest novel is a hard-hitting and often disturbing ride from start to finish. Our story begins when Paris Peralta regains consciousness in her bathroom, covered in blood and next to her recently murdered husband. Immediately Paris is taken into custody, but everything is not as it seems as secrets are uncovered and hidden pasts are revealed. This was a seriously dark tale with characters that will haunt me for months to come. ~ Reviewed by Madison Gallup
