Coming soon! Upcoming titles I can’t wait to read.

August: 

Bad Feminist: Essays by Roxane Gay  bad feminist - Copy

I fell in love with this author after reading her new novel, Untamed State, and now I want to read anything she ever writes. I am super looking forward to this one, which comes out next week.

 

 

September:

paying guestsThe Paying Guests by Sarah Waters

I love Waters’ signature style of suspenseful historical fiction, often focusing on lesbian relationships. Tipping the Velvet is one of my favorites, and this one sounds like it could be just as good. It takes place in 1920s London and centers on a widow and her spinster daughter who are forced to take a young couple into their home as lodgers.

 

Not That Kind of Girl: a Young Woman Tells You What She’s Learned by Lena Dunham 

not that kind of girl

I find Lena Dunham to be quite funny and smart in interviews, and I am a big fan of her show Girls, so I am really curious to see how this book of essays will turn out.

How to Build a Girl by Caitlin Moran

This upcoming coming of age novel had me at the publisher blurb: “Imagine The Bell Jar written by Rizzo from Grease.”  It takes place in London in the 1990s, and is written by a well-known UK critic and feminist author who’s non-fiction title How to be a Woman made a big splash when it came out in 2012. Also, look at that great cover! I love the 90s-fied take on the classic cover of The Bell Jar.

 

Smoke Gets in Your Eyes: and Other Lessons from the Crematory by Caitlin Doughty

smoke gets in your eyes

I’ve heard a lot of hype about this one, and it sounds pretty fascinating. It’s a memoir by a young woman who took a job at a crematory in her 20s and found her calling as a mortician.

 

 

October:
