Shy Feet by Frances M. Thompson. Each short story that I read from Thompson catches me off-gaurd with her beautiful writing style, her use of words, and the surprise endings. I also love that her stories always seem to incorporate travel in some way making each story perfectly wanderlust inducing. Thompson is currently working on one new short story each month that you can get (for free!) by subscribing to her newsletter. I recently signed up for this newsletter myself and really enjoyed the short story, Balloons.

#GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso. I had been longing for this book since I first started seeing it pop up all over blogs and social media back in the fall. Luckily, #GirlBoss did not disappoint. I found this book incredibly motivating, clearly written, and would highly recommend it to girl (and boy) bosses of any age. I'm even thinking of using pieces of this book in one of my classes.
A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab. This book turned out to be such a wonderful surprise when J picked it up randomly from the wonderful Pocket Shop book store in the Frankfurt Airport. He finished the book in a few days and I finished it shortly after. A Darker Shade of Magic is a thrilling fantasy novel that takes the reader through different, parallel Londons that have varying levels of magic.
