It's true; Fleabag is so 2019, but for me, it’s great to look back and commemorate the moment, before everything came crashing down, when one woman was making art in the shape of women. The Fleabag Scriptures contains entire scripts of seasons 1&2 and provides fans with an intimate view of how Waller-Bridge's mind works. Perfect for fans of the show, writers, actors, and humans on your list.

I wanted to love Obreht's The Tiger's Wife, but I felt like I was missing the significance of the tiger (Lol. Hello, Life of Pi). Anyway, this gem requires only that you hitch up and enjoy the ride. Themes are dark and dangerous, but Obreht's prose is seething with empathy and I can't wait to get back to it each night.

Floating in the pool like a starfish is the only place 11-year-old Ellie feels weightless. Everywhere else she is burdened by people’s perceptions of her. Bullied relentlessly about her weight, Ellie finds allies in her father, a therapist and her new next door neighbor and learns to stand up for herself, abandon her fat girl rules, and take up space, even outside the pool. Powerful, sometimes painful, kid-sized critique of diet culture and fat shaming.
