Mae Holland lands the job of her dream working for the Circle, the world's most powerful internet company.

2. Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

It's impossible for parents to not get involved in their children's affairs. In fact, it's only a matter of time before you realize that they're pretty childish themselves. Madeline, Celeste, and Jane are all parents in a small town with secrets of their own. They've told their fair share of little lies to get by, but these lies are coming back to their present. A dramatic novel, Big Little Lies, is full of all the scandals to spice up any summer day.

(Now an HBO limited series with Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and Shailene Woodley)

3. Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

A collection of poems and prose, Milk and Honey, recounts the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. The book is divided into 4 chapters with 4 distinct purposes. Each takes readers through some of life's most difficult moments yet finds a way to see light amidst darkness. Kaur remind us there's always a silver lining in every situation, as long as we're willing to look.

4. A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

Everyone loves a story of unexpected friendship. Ove is a grump: people call him "the bitter neighbor from hell." But there's a story behind every person. When a chatty couple with two young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove's mailbox, it's the start of a beautiful friendship. This feel-good story reminds us of the surprising yet positive impact one life can have on countless others.

5. Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Ifemelu and Obinze are young and in love. They leave military-ruled Nigeria in hopes of being together in the West; however, because of post-9/11 scares Obinze gets denied entrance to Americana and is forced to start a dangerous, undocumented life in London. Meanwhile, Ifemelu makes it to America and grapples with racism for the first time in her life. Fifteen years later, they reunite in a newly democratic Nigeria. This complex novel explores the continuously relevant themes of love, race, class, and identity.
