>THE LAST BOOK I LOVED

CHRISTINA HENDRICKS

Freedom by Jonathan Franzen

“The way Franzen describes families and relationships is so real and feels so specifically personal—you can’t believe someone else is writing exactly what you think.”

HODA KOTB

Left to Tell by Immaculée Ilibagiza

“It sounds all weighty… . It’s an Anne Frank story set in Rwanda. When you read what this woman went through and what happens in the end, you’ll realize you can forgive anybody.”

KELLAN LUTZ

The Shack by Wm. Paul Young

“It’s about a guy who loses his daughter and goes on this whole journey and finds God. Whether or not you’re religious, it’s just a really great story.”

ALLY SHEEDY

The Emperor’s Children by Claire Messud

“This book came out a while ago. It’s like a comedy of manners about people in New York, and it’s just really intelligent and really invitingly funny.”
