  16. The End Of My Career-Martha Grover
    This essay collection just felt so relatable.
  17. Another City, Not My Own-Dominick Dunne
    I found this insanely fascinating, not just because of my OJ obsession at the moment but because Dominick Dunne's real life is so interesting

    Essays from wonderful writers about friendship 💕

    Different from her short stories but a great novel!
  25. Spoiled Brats-Simon Rich
    Thank you @bjnovak

  27. South and West-Joan Didion
    As part of Emma Roberts' Belletrist book club
  28. LA Woman-Eve Babitz
    My second book of hers that I've read and while I liked it, it wasn't as good as Slow Days, Fast Company
  29. Textbook Amy Krouse Rosenthal-AKR
    The best book on this list. Sobbed my way through it. RIP Amy
  30. Too Much and Not the Mood-Durga Chew-Bose
    I'm only reading home runs this week. This may be my favorite on this list so far
  31. Thirteen Reasons Why-Jay Asher
    I liked it but this is the RARE case where I liked the show better 😳😳😳
  32. My Friend Dahmer-Derf Backderf
    Oh my god. This was SO good but now I've fallen into a google black hole of reading about Jeffrey Dahmer
  33. Women-Chloe Caldwell
    A book signed to me from one of my favorite authors!
  34. The Rules Do Not Apply-Ariel Levy
    Heartbreaking but still such a worthwhile read, thank you Emma Roberts/Belletrist
  35. Little Children-Tom Perrotta
    I couldn't put this down! After reading this and The Leftovers, I can't wait to check out more of his books
  36. The Idiot-Elif Batuman
    Took me a while to get into it but once I did, I couldn't put it down
  37. A Long Way Home-Saroo Brierley
    Read this after watching Lion. Such an inspiring and amazing story
  38. Marlena-Julie Buntin
    I LOVED this book. I purposely read it slowly because I didn't want to be done. Best book I've read this year. It just made me nostalgic for being 15 and it was so well written
  39. Into the Water-Paula Hawkins
    Kept me at the edge of my seat! I liked it more than Girl on the Train
  40. Let's Pretend This Never Happened-Jenny Lawson
    A recommendation from my friend Ian. Hilarious!
  41. My Life With Bob-Pamela Paul
    I have never related to someone more. So happy to be a "book person"
  42. The Most Dangerous Place On Earth-Lindsey Lee Johnson
    This hooked me, I read it in one day. Another debut novel by an author I wish I could read more of right now
  43. When You Find Out The World Is Against You - Kelly Oxford
    I laughed, I cried, I wanted to be Kelly's friend
  44. Woman No. 17-Edan Lepucki
    An Emma Roberts recommendation that definitely holds up
  45. California- Edan Lepucki
    Futuristic and gripping. Even better than Woman No. 17
  46. White Fur-Jardine Libaire
    Beautifully written and ended not at all how I thought it would
  47. Touch - Courtney Maum
    Another Emma Roberts Belletrist pick. Truly makes you think about all the ways technology is changing our lives
  48. I Am Having So Much Fun Here Without You-Courtney Maum
    Had to follow up Touch with her debut novel. I liked it but still think that Touch was much better
  49. Rich People Problems-Kevin Kwan
    The third and final novel (following Crazy Rich Asians and China Rich Girlfriend).
  50. Chemistry-Weike Wang
    Another Emma Roberts pick. Read like a stream of consciousness which made it impossible for me to put down. Excellent debut
  51. The Handmaid's Tale- Margaret Atwood
    Can't believe I hadn't read this until now. Insanely interesting and I hope the Hulu series holds up
  52. Anything Is Possible-Elizabeth Strout
    Another Emma Roberts pick. Interconnected short stories, just okay
  53. The Graybar Hotel-Curtis Dawkins
    Dawkins' debut, short stories written while he's serving a life sentence in prison. SO interesting
  54. Sour Heart - Jenny Zhang
    Wonderful debut of interconnected short stories. Highly recommend
  55. Mrs. Fletcher-Tom Perrotta
    Good not great. I remain a Perrotta fan but this one hasn't been as strong as some of his others
  56. What We Lose-Zinzi Clemmons
    Another Emma Roberts rec. Devoured this in a day, such an excellent debut
  57. The Answers-Catherine Lacey
    Another Emma Roberts rec. Unlike anything else I've ever read...in a good way
  58. In The Belly Of The Beast-Jack Henry Abbott
    A recommendation from a co-worker. Not something I would have picked up myself, but very eye-opening
  59. The Burning Girl-Claire Messud
    One of the best I've read in a long time. Highly recommend-beautifully written, gripping, and reminded me a bit of Julie Buntin's Marlena
