Exploring the responsibilities love lays on us, the complicated burdens of motherhood, and the rippling impact of our choices, She Wouldn’t Change a Thing by Sarah Adlakha is a dazzling debut from a bright new voice.
What to Drink:
This book is set in the South, so you can’t go wrong offering a refreshing pitcher of sweet tea. Don’t forget to garnish with lemon or a sprig of mint! Match this gorgeous cover with a crisp rosé for book clubs who prefer a boozy option.
What to Eat:
This book gives you the perfect excuse to revisit 80s cuisine! Everything from sushi to pasta salad to quiche fit the bill. Pick up some frozen pizza rolls to really live that 80s high school experience. Or here’s a great recipe for homemade pizza rolls if you’d like to elevate it a bit!
What to Watch:
Sliding Doors, the 1998 film starring Gwyneth Paltrow is a great example of another “what if” story. Bonus points for a great soundtrack! If you’re looking for a way to think about connection and memory, check out Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind starring Jim Carrey & Kate Winslet.
