Lauren Bosworth has lived in Canton (Jackson township) most of her life. She is a Central Catholic High School and Miami University graduate who decided to make Northeast Ohio her home again after college.
She co-owns and runs Laura of Pembroke, and most recently opened a second location in Cleveland, so she is enjoying exploring Cleveland more. She loves to travel, for work and for pleasure.
When she’s not traveling, she calls herself a homebody, as she loves to spend time relaxing at home with her boyfriend, Jack, and dog, Eloise.
What is your guilty pleasure book?
I can read anything along the lines of “Gone Girl” by Gillian Flynn (434 pages, 2012) over and over again. I always try to push myself to read something different because I have a tendency to grab for those types of books first.
What is the book that shocked you the most?
I read “The Other Woman” by Sandie Jones (304 pages, 2018) recently, and it had a pretty big twist at the end!
What is the last book you read?
“The Wife Between Us” by Greer Hendricks, Sarah Pekkanen (352 pages, 2018).
Do you have a go-to book for vacations?
My new obsession is Reese Witherspoon’s book club list. I ran across it recently on Instagram (@reesesbookclubxhellosunshine), and I’ve been slowly making my way through! I stock up on a few every time I’m heading out of town (always actual books; I can’t do Kindles/iPads!).
Who is your favorite author and why?
Jodi Picoult. I’ve read all of her books. I love how she always picks a controversial topic and writes a story around it.
What book have you read more than once because you love it so much?
“The Giver” by Lois Lowry (208 pages, 1993). I’m not sure why I love it so much, but it’s such a quick read that I’ve gone back and reread it over the years a few times.
What section of the library or bookstore do you visit first?
The tables in the middle with the best-sellers always get me hooked! I recently visited an awesome independently owned bookstore in Frisco, Colorado, called Next Page. It was so nice to go into a locally owned book store, and I loved their selection. I could’ve stayed in there forever.
