At the beginning of each season, I like to share a new reading list — not only for compiling my book recommendations, but for the sake of accountability.
But first, have you ordered my book yet? Have you written a review? I’m in the middle of working on my second book, and while fiction is so challenging, I can’t wait to share the story.
I read some amazing books this fall and you can see the whole list here. Here are my favorites:
This probably wins as my favorite book of the year. Jia brilliantly shares several short stories to highlight the disillusion of our current society, especially influenced by social media. It’s also hilarious. If you want a gift for your favorite bookworm, buy them this.
This book talks about female sexuality in a way I’ve never heard before, and I wish it was the norm. I think all women should read this. Hell, all men should, too!
As an upcoming movie, this broke my heart into a million pieces and I can’t wait to cry in theaters (okay, maybe I’ll go but probably not but you know).
Onto what I’m reading this winter!
A funny novel about famous people. Bring it.
A fun novel to split up all the intense books on this list.
A fun holiday read that’s part of a bigger series.
Another thriller about a misogynistic dystopia. Is anyone else ready to get their IUD out now that Trump is about to be out of office? But, I digress.
Ali Wong’s new book features letters to her daughters that are supposed to be hilarious.
I received this at the Vanity Fair Summit in October, and I finally need to read all about the journalistic efforts behind the #MeToo movement.
Also a gift from the Vanity Fair Summit, this features some of the magazine’s top articles on women written by women throughout the years.
A memoir that sounds like Eat Pray Love. I’m intrigued.
Another memoir about a Mormon survivalist who ends up getting her PhD. My therapist recommended it — more enthusiastically than I would expect.
This is pretty old but was recommended by a new friend when we commiserated over being the daughters of narcissists. I know, I’m a blast to invite to dinner parties.
What’s on your reading list? Let me know!
