First, I am currently staying up late reading The Farm by Joanne Ramos. If The Handmaid's Tale caught your interest, you will find this novel thought-provoking.
Also taking up space on my Kindle is Before the Rain Falls by Camille Di Maio. The story follows a woman recently released from prison, where she served a sentence for murdering her sister. Did she do it? Somehow, I think she was unfairly accused :-).
On a serious note, this title was recommended to me and others on a forum. We were discussing resolutions and goals, and of course, improved mental health. I have started it, but it deserves quiet study and I have yet to give it much attention. It is good and contains both scientific background and helpful information as well as ways to improve one's mood.
The Upward Spiral: Using Neuroscience to Reverse the Course of Depression, One Small Change at a Time by Alex Korb.
As always, I keep art and craft references close at hand. Two books which are providing me some spark are Stitch Stories: Personal Places, Spaces, and Traces in Textile Art by Cas Holmes and Slow Stitch: Mindful and Contemplative Textile Art by Claire Wellesley-Smith. Both are beautiful and rich with detail and inspiration.
What is on your nightstand or on your reader? I am always looking for titles to add to my list.
