The Grain Brain Cookbook: More Than 150
Life-Changing Gluten-Free Recipes to
Transform Your Health, by David Perlmutter.
In The Grain Brain, Perlmutter showed the
impact that wheat, sugar and carbs have on
our brains. This cookbook gives fans of
Perlmutter’s advice the chance to create delicious meals that will keep your brain vibrant
and your body fit. They also help to make the
transition to a gluten-free lifestyle seamless
and stress-free.—Alex Zennan
The Best of Me, by Nicholas Sparks. The
Best of Me is one in a long line of Sparks’ novels to be adapted for the big screen. It’s the
story of two middle-aged former high school
sweethearts, who return to their hometown
for the funeral of a former mentor. As the two
carry out their friend’s instructions, they
uncover long-buried feelings and undeniable
truths. Before the film hits your local movie
theater later this month, why not read the
story in Sparks’ words?—Brian Hovis
Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good, by
Jan Karon. In this, the latest Mitford novel,
Karon picks up the story of Father Tim
Kavanagh. Newly returned from a trip to the
land of his Irish ancestors, Kavanagh finds he
misses the pulpit, only to demure when one is
offered to him. Meanwhile, his adopted son
wrestles with his yearning for Lace Turner and
his desire to be a country vet. And, in true
Mitford style, several other locals must come
to terms with their own passions and worries.
The only question in readers’ minds: Does
Mitford take care of its own?—Shana Stowers
Nightmares!, by Jason Segel and Kirsten

visited by nightmares. Soon his nightmares
start slipping out of his dreams into his wak-
ing world and coming true.—Scott Losse
