Looking for your next great read? Junior League of Tulsa Members have some suggestions. 

  • Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid 
    • This New York Times Bestseller is a world-wide hit and is being adapted for TV by Amazon Studios. This book is a coming-of-age story centered around 1970s rock ‘n’ roll.
    • “Easy read, but really entertaining! Written as an oral history, it follows how the fictional band, Daisy Jones & The Six, came to be and why they split. The way it is written, you feel connected to the characters and the story. I couldn’t put it down, and I didn’t want it to end!”- Victoria Hui Holloman 
    • “Such a fun read, about a rock band in the 60s. Great character development, and the book is told from multiple band member perspectives.  Love that the author included the lyrics at the end!”- Allie Stites
  • Rules of Civility by Amor Towles 
    • This book follows a young woman in post-Depression-era New York as she navigates high society for the first time. She must rely on her wit and charm to make her way through a new world.
    • “I enjoyed the time period and the growth of the main female character.” – Amanda Pitcock
  • The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss 
      • The first in an unfinished fantasy series, The Name of the Wind follows a man through his life as he becomes a powerful wizard. Rothfuss creates a new world of magic, mystery, and adventure that’s exciting to explore.
      • “This book kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. It is full of twists and turns and left me itching to read the next book.”- Katie Groke
