Riveting read

Every time I put down Gabrielle Zevin's 2017 novel "Young Jane Young," I couldn't wait to return to the engrossing, funny read. There's no doubt on whom author Gabrielle Zevin modeled her story: former President Bill Clinton and his sexually gutsy intern Monica Lewinsky. Zevin mixes the storyline and characters, but it's still an entertaining read told from the viewpoints of intern Aviva; her horrified mother, Rachel; Aviva's quirky daughter, Ruby; and, in the final part, a choose-your-own-adventure chapter. - Jennifer Mulson

Dollar days

Thirsty but lacking dinero? Colorado Applebee's are offering $1 margaritas - aka "Dollaritas" - all October to celebrate Applebee's Neighborhood Appreciation Month. These are a combination of tequila and Applebee's margarita mix. Go ahead, treat yourself, and you'll have plenty of money left for some nachos. - Michelle Karas
