The World of Rae English by Lucy Rosenthal came from me because one of my book clubs is reading it soon.
One of the Women's National Book Association's "Great Group Reads" for this year, this little known novel about the former wife of a jailed politician who goes to the Iowa Writer's Workshop intending to become a writer sounds delightfully entertaining.
The Martian by Andy Weir came from me because another of my book clubs is reading it even sooner than the above book.
Since my book club likes to try and read different types of books throughout the year (but few of us actually like to read sci-fi), we latched onto this highly lauded book about an astronaut who is left behind on Mars without enough oxygen to last him until the next mission arrives.
