  1. Young Jane Young
    Static
    I am LOVING this. It's the story of a woman who gets caught up in a congressional sex scandal and what happens later in her life. It's that rare and treasured thing, easy-to-read-because-well-written "upmarket" fiction ie not quite commercial and not quite literary. Was lucky to snag the Advance Review Copy at BookExpo. Maybe 8.9/10 if not 9/10. Out 22nd august so pre-order it for Labor Day/bank holiday weekend!
  2. Young Elites by Marie Lu

    I'm giving Marie Lu another chance as I was not into Legend. So far intriguing concept. I'm not far in.

  3. The Gravity Between Us by Kristin Zimmer

    It's... okay? Not the best writing and a little soppy 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Haven't actually started it yet, but I've got a long flight to Israel tomorrow, so I'm planning to dive in!

  5. This Is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare - Gabourey Sidibe
    Static
    Female, celebrity memoirs are one of my favorite genres of books, but I've never seen any of Gabourey's work so I wasn't sure how interested I would be in reading her story. However, I found this book to be extremely well-written, interesting, funny, and insightful. Gabourey has lead such an interesting life, I flew through this book over the last two days!
