It’s a beautifully written—sometimes even chill-inducing—ode to books, with a “DaVinci Code”-esque twist. This is a novel that makes you stop and consider all of the reasons you love to read, and remember those certain books that have made their own special mark in your life.

Take some time this weekend to nurture your creative side. How will you unwind?
