Another month, another nightstand! There is nothing I love more than spending a few hours browsing a bookstore, espresso in hand. Bad for the wallet but good for the soul! A recent trip to Barnes & Noble brought these good reads my way.
Gingerbread by Helen Oyeyemi
I’ve never read Oyeyemi, which is a real shame, but I’m glad to finally reverse that statement with her latest release, Gingerbread. The hype for this one is real. I decided to pick it up at the recommendation of @literatureandchill; hopefully it lives up to her praise!
A Place for Us by Fatima Farheen Mirza
A Place for Us has been on my radar since it came out (and I realize I say that a lot). As SJP for Hogarth’s first release as an imprint, it already created a lot of buzz when it came out. Recently, I loved SJP’s second pick, Golden Child, so it feels like the right time to pick up A Place for Us.
An American Marriage by Tayari Jones
The praise for An American Marriage has been slowing building and building, from Oprah to the National Book Award. Finally, I am unable to resist the pull of Tayari Jones’s latest title. The synopsis sounds highly intriguing, and its spare page count is exactly what I need right now.
