1. The Diary of a Teenage Girl by Phoebe Gloeckner

    Dark, painful, funny, and sad. Can't wait to see the movie!
  2. Unabrow by Una LaMarche
    Image
    Some funny essays about growing up.
  3. The Witches: Salem, 1692 by Stacy Schiff
    Image
    Fail. I had to return it before I could finish. This book is on such high demand at the NY Public Library that I had a shorter check out period than normal and was not allowed to renew it. Entertaining and informative so far, I'll let you know when I finish.
  4. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
    Image
    Such a beautiful story!! I cannot recommend this more highly!
  5. The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion
    Image
    I read this in college, but it was more meaningful with an older brain.
  6. Tiny Beautiful Things by @CherylStrayed
    Image
    Since finishing this book, I have purchased two more copies for friends who I thought might benefit from reading it. More interesting and much cheaper than therapy!
  7. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
    Image
    Wanna know what I was like from ages 18-21? The main character of this book was very familiar, in personality and situation. It was really great, but a little hard for me to read.
  8. Nimona by Noelle Stevenson
    Image
    Nimona is the shit! Funny and tough, I am so happy that she exists and that young girls are reading about her. And Noelle Stevenson is only 23 years old!! I can't wait to see what else she decides to do!
