Described as “the perfect worry novel”, Jenny Offill’s latest work is about the weather (mainly the looming threat of climate change) but it also speaks to weathering smaller anxieties (politics, marriage, interfamily relationships, a failure to live up to expectations). Told through narrative fragments and wry observations, Weather offers a kaleidoscopic and tender experience of being alive during uncertain times.

Utterly charming. Featuring outcast weirdo children that will win your heart and a deeply satisfying romance, with a side of rising up against injustice. This book feels as familiar in tone as putting on a favorite sweater while still managing to bring something new and special. A great comfort read!

Full of very accessible but always interesting and flavorful vegetarian recipes. Lately I've been cooking from this book or the author's blog, Cookie and Kate, multiple times per week. My favorites are the sweet potato black bean enchiladas and chickpea tikka masala, both of which use a lot of pantry staples!

You ever go into a museum and ask yourself what would stop you from just taking something and walking right out the front door? Maybe, but you sure don't act on it (I hope). The kids in this true story did. Find out what happens when four college students carry out an art heist in this utterly fascinating true crime comedy of errors. And if you haven't seen the movie, do it. If you have, this pairs with it perfectly, offering a fresh new point of view.

Frances Cha's debut is completely transporting. Featuring four women who live in the same building in Seoul, it's a glimpse into four very different lives intertwining as each faces the challenges and expectations of social and economic hierarchy in modern Korean culture. Fascinating and vivid.

I turn to this book whenever I need to be comforted or inspired, to laugh or cry, to feel understood and be reminded that we are not alone. Every time I pick it up, I find something new in it, and it's always what I need most to hear at the time. In fact, I've already staff picked it! But I'd like for you all to have the chance to have a copy with you right now. Plus.... if you want..... it can double as a quarantine coloring book.

You'll want to eat these poems in heaping spoonfuls so they fill your mouth and also nibble at them in delicate bits so they last as long as possible. A gasping collection. A sighing collection. A singing collection. Diaz should clear space on her mantle for the awards she is sure to win.
