The romance novelist and author of While We Were Dating and The Proposal on The Glass Hotel, Yaa Gyasi, and the cookbook she turns to when she is 'procrastibaking.'

by Leah Johnson. I’ve recommended this book dozens of times and to so many different people, and I can’t stop doing it. I loved everything about it, and it made me smile from ear to ear when I finished....made me rethink a long-held belief:by Mira Jacob. Before I read

Good Talk, I thought I didn’t like, or that I didn’t get, graphic novels. But wow, this book made me realize how incredible this form could be.…I swear I'll finish one day:The Song of Achillesby Madeline Miller. I read the first three quarters of this book during the pandemic and loved everything about it. But the thing is, I know what happens at the end, and as soon as I could tell we were getting there, I stopped reading. My emotions were too fragile. Someday, I’ll have the strength to finish! (But…is it that bad to just decide they lived happily ever after?)

I recently got an advance copy of this upcoming memoir, and I’m very excited to start it.…I’d gift to a new graduate:by Morgan Rogers.

…made me laugh out loud:by Samantha Irby. Be careful reading this book! I laughed so hard while reading it I almost passed out in the bathtub.

...I last bought:Snacking Cakesby Yossy Arefi. I love snacks, and I love to bake, so the title of this book got me from the very beginning. The recipes are all for those kinds of cakes you can bake spontaneously when you’re procrastibaking, which is something I frequently do.

...has the best title:The Secret Lives of Church Ladiesby Deesha Philyaw. This title alone made me want to pick up the book, even though I think of myself as a person who doesn’t like short stories. I might be wrong about that, because I loved every single one of these short stories.

...has the best opening line:by Daphne du Maurier. “Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.” Don’t you just get chills?…has the greatest ending:by Yaa Gyasi. I love absolutely everything about this book, and the ending filled me with so much joy and wonder. headtopics.com
