The first book I'm reading is going to be a book by Maria Semple entitled, Where'd You Go Bernadette. Semple's novel follows a teenage girl's hunt for her mother, Bernadette who has disappeared. Bernadette is described as being "notorious" and "agoraphobic." I've been looking forward to reading this book and have heard nothing, but good things about it. Hopefully, I'll enjoy it just as much as everyone else has.
Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier, which is the first book in a trilogy entitled with the same name. This novel deals with time traveling and a secret society of individuals who jump through time. The main character, Gwen unexpectedly starts leaping through time without being trained and has to learn the finer points of time traveling on the fly.
