Looking for some festive romance to read before the holiday? Put this one on your list!
Maelyn hates everything about where she's at in life - stuck living at home with her mom and in a job that isn't creatively fulfilling. But she loves spending the holidays with her parent's college friends and their families.
She gets some extra time to enjoy it and figure out what she wants in life when she gets stuck in a Groundhog Day-esque time loop.
This book is swoony, cozy, and fun.

Vesper Flights is recommended for fans of Annie Dillard and for readers of MacDonald’s previous book, the bestseller, H is for Hawk. Vesper Flights has short chapters that are often informative meditations on nature and life. Topics are diverse, from poison mushrooms, to climate change, to birds - of course! The writing is a bit melancholy and spare but conveys beauty, wonder, and wisdom.

Cici is moving from Taiwan to Seattle, and she is very nervous, especially because now she will be missing out on quality time with her grandmother, who isn’t moving with her. Cici decides that she’s going to fly her grandmother to the United States for her 70th birthday, and since her family can’t afford the plane ticket, Cici enters a cooking competition, where the grand prize is $1,000! The only problem is, Cici has no idea how to cook American food, and doesn’t know how the judges will react to her Taiwanese food.
This is a heartwarming book about Cici’s experience as an immigrant, expectations from her parents about her academic and career goals, fitting in with her new friends, and the joy that can come from building connections through food.
One of my favorites of the year.
