Joan Didion$16.00 $14.72
Obviously I cried.
Dolly Alderton$27.00 $24.84
Dolly is a treasure, as I've said before, and her debut novel felt like a long phone call with a friend.
Tommy Orange$25.95 $23.87
I'm not trying to make light of the content of this novel, because it was an incredibly important look into the Indigenous experience in Oakland, CA, but I always love a Love Actually-style story where all the narratives weave together. This is nothing like Love Actually, though.
Lily King$27.00 $24.84
A very accurate portrait of a woman in her 30s that I actually identified with.
Ann Patchett$27.99 $25.75
Light Architectural Digest vibes.
Hanya Yanagihara$35.00 $32.20
A story that answers the question "Could this get any worse?" with an enthusiastic "YEP!"
Julia Child and Alex Prud'homme$17.00 $15.64
Read this after A Little Life as a palette cleanser (hehe).
Cheryl Strayed$16.95 $15.59
Who doesn't love an advice column?
Patti Smith$16.99 $15.63
This is maybe the first book I cried into since I read A Walk to Remember in the 6th grade.
Brit Bennett$27.00 $24.84
Unlike any storyline I’ve ever read — this is truly new and eye opening lit.
