City of Girls

Elizabeth Gilbert

$17.00 $15.64

Recommended by Megan: The funnest book I've read in years! Elizabeth Gilbert said she set out to write a book that would go down like a champagne cocktail and boy did she!

Daisy Jones & the Six

Taylor Jenkins Reid

$17.00 $15.64

Recommended by Megan & Josh: This book is just so much fun. Follow rock band Daisy Jones and the Six through their meteoric rise to fame in the 1970s. Soon to be a limited series produced by Reese Witherspoon!

Mexican Gothic

Silvia Moreno-Garcia

$27.00 $24.84

Recommended by Josh: I don't consider myself to be a horror genre reader, but I loved this one. Megan refers to it as "deliciously creepy" and that is the perfect description. Such a satisfying read. Hulu is producing it as limited tv series as well, but you should totally read the book first!

Every Heart a Doorway

Seanan McGuire

$17.99 $16.55

Recommended by Megan: Crackling with all the enchantment of the classic tales of โ€œwayward children,โ€ like Alice or the Pevensies, with a delicious darkness all its own, Every Heart a Doorway will have you looking around every cornerโ€”for imminent death or for a door to another dimension...I gobbled up all six of these novellas (out of a planned ten) in like a month!

A Deadly Education

Naomi Novik

$28.00 $25.76

Recommended by Megan: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina meets Harry Potter meets Hunger Games, with a spellbinding, unputdownable humor, horror, and magic all its own!

Get a Life, Chloe Brown

Talia Hibbert

$15.99 $14.71

Recommended by Megan: This is a RED HOT romance between two very well-drawn characters, each with their own past traumas to resolve on their way to each other, touching on chronic illness, race, class, abusive relationships...and it's somehow hilarious at the same time?

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet

Becky Chambers

$17.99 $16.55

Recommended by Megan & Josh: This is the funnest, tenderest, most lovable space romp youโ€™ll ever take. With inter-species romance, plenty of pronouns, and space-age wisdom, this book made me feel more tender to our own young species of Homo Sapiens and to myself.

Still Life with Woodpecker (Reissue)

Tom Robbins

$17.00 $15.64

Recommended by Josh: The novel continuously addresses the question of "how to make love stay" and is sometimes referred to as "a postmodern fairy tale". Still Life is a fun, easy read, but still full of witty, thought-provoking, and quotable aphorisms. We quoted from this book in our wedding vows!

Jitterbug Perfume

Tom Robbins

$17.00 $15.64

Recommended by Miranda: Tom Robbins masterfully navigates this funny, often absurd, saga with four distinct storylines, one set in 8th century Bohemia and three others in modern day New Orleans, Seattle and Paris. If you enjoy your philosophy with a good belly laugh, then this is the right book for you.

A Discovery of Witches

Deborah Harkness

$18.00 $16.56

Recommended by Suzanne: This book was such a fun read. I loved the storyline as well as the historical references that made me feel like I was learning while being entertained.
