- •Not Working, by Lisa OwensI was giggling at this book this morning, and my mum asked me why, and I couldn't explain it. The premise doesn't sound that great: the main character, whose name is Claire (yes — this did influence my decision to read it, judge me if you like!) is between jobs and trying to find herself. She's so recognisable and relatable. It's great. Do yourselves a favour and order the British version on Book Depository though, if you don't want your Brits saying "crosswalk" and "potato chips". 8/10
- •Empire of the Summer Moon by S.C. GwynneI've been wanting to learn more about Native American history and saw this recommended by @ellenh on a list by @andersun. Figured this would be a good place to start, and it is! Bonus: it mostly takes place close to home, so I'm also learning about the history of my area as well!Suggested by @KikiHines
- •Year of No Clutter by Eve SchaubA book about cleaning out the clutter of the Hell room and trying to not become a hoarder. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Sv1vd1HHOn4 Good read. 8/10.Suggested by @solitarygigi
- •The Darkest Minds by Alexandra BrackenJust started. I am optimistic since I loved her Passenger books.Suggested by @macnchz
- •In the Woods by Tana FrenchEnjoying it so far. I don't usually read mysteriesSuggested by @victoriaedel
- •The Case Against Sugar — Gary TaubesI'm generally not good with this type of non-fiction. (Where are the characters? The plot points?) But I'm trying to bolster my resolve to cut out sugar (again). I'm about 1/3 in and some of the history's absolutely fascinating. We're about to dig in on the science, do god help me.Suggested by @readjulia
