Book Soup is home to some awesome booksellers. Here are some books Audrey recommends.

Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead

Olga Tokarczuk

$27.00 $24.30

"A hilarious and well-paced literary mystery. Tokarczuk's Janina recalls a somehow more eccentric Miss Marple, if Miss Marple were also an animal rights activist/poetry translator living in rural Poland. "

The Haunting of Hill House

Shirley Jackson

$16.00 $14.72

"Just an FYI: this is nothing like the Netflix show. A brilliant, laugh out loud character study of that girl in a group of friends whom no one likes, all wrapped up in a fun ghost story."

I'm Thinking of Ending Things

Iain Reid

$15.99 $14.71

"I read this straight through one lazy afternoon and I regret nothing, only perhaps that I allowed it to end so soon. Gripping, eerie, and psychologically complex while remaining utterly entertaining."

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup

John Carreyrou

$27.95 $25.16

"Elizabeth Holmes is the girlboss supervillian we deserve. An insane story about the delusions of Silicon Valley idealism that reads more like true crime than 'business reporting.'"

Seeing Red

Lina Meruane

$14.95 $13.75

"The author's own experience of going blind inspired this novel and its sensuous, fleshy prose. In contrast to your typical tales of illness, Seeing Red reads like horror novel, exploring how human weakness can lead to emotional manipulation and toxic relationships, with an ending that made me gasp out loud. "

My Heart Hemmed in

Marie Ndiaye

$14.95 $13.75

"Two middle-aged French schoolteachers who mostly keep to themselves are suddenly and violently ostracized by everyone in their small French village. NDiaye problematizes our conceptions of what it means to be good and what untold responsibilities lie in human existence. "

The Houseguest: And Other Stories

Amparo Dávila

$14.95 $13.75

"Davila was a highly acclaimed writer in Mexico in the 20th century and was translated into English for the first time only 2 YEARS AGO. "

You Too Can Have a Body Like Mine

Alexandra Kleeman

$15.99 $14.71

"A hot girl book that's actually great. A bizarre, dreamlike novel about identity, beauty, and consumerism, that ends up being something like Single White Female meets a Kelly Link story. "
