If you're a fan of the Netflix shows Orange is the New Black or Manhunt then you'll love this book. Kushner's characters are all related to the justice system, and most of them are on the wrong side of it. But that doesn't make them bad people. This is a gritty portrait of people who are down on their luck

Winter, the second book in the Seasons Quartet, continues in the same vein as Autumn with vignettes about items, events, and people Knausgaard encounters in the season. I found the essays in turns funny, endearing, and haunting. A few of my favorite essays are "Winter Sounds", "Guests", and "Winter Boots".

I've been following the O'Hara sisters on Instagram for over a year while I anxiously waited to read this book. I wasn't disappointed when I finally held a copy! The illustrations are simultaneously luminescent and dark, and the story of little Hortense who's afraid of her shadow is endearing.

A customer recommended this book to me, and I'm so glad. It's a beautiful book and a gift that's meant to be shared. By the end you'll feel centered and like you've made a new friend in Robin Wall Kimmerer and many new friends in your environment. It's also a wonderful reprieve from politics, no matter your stance.

If you buy the Penguin classics in hardcover just for the pretty covers then you'll like this: It's the same illustrator/designer! Coralie Bickford-Smith's new book is wonderfully illustrated and I think both adults and children will enjoy. It's darkly humorous, but also thoughtful and insightful.
