1. …Want a challenge that’ll make you want: My dark Vanessa By Kate Elizabeth Russell
I have spent more time considering this kind of new is not only just about any book I’ve read. Everyone should make time to read this disturbing, thoughtful story(and then, to be clear,@me, because I just don’t want to talk about it!). This heartbreaking story centers on a young woman with a dark secret: for years, since she was a young child, she had been having a relationship with her high school English teacher. What seems to be a clear abuse of the case is more complex, in Vanessa’s own mind, where she thought it was a misunderstood love story. When more victims come forward years after the#M rabbit movement, she has the challenging task of having to recontextualize her life, and want to know how many victims, she really could have been.
2. …Know Clueless Is your favorite version Emma: Anna K By Jenny Lee
Anna K With rare honors I shouted out loud, to no one,”this is so delightful!” Happily, you don’t need a Russian scholar to enjoy this on. Anna Karenina. This version of the doomed love triangle of the graft to the parent Generation Z in Manhattan. Think Gossip Girl Mixing a variety of perspectives and a bit ironic Crazy Rich Asians— Combined with, you know, Tolstoy. Because the book clearly States:”every happy girl is the same, but each unhappy teenage girl is tragic, in her own special way.” <3

Weird and complex shift in perspective will certainly keep you very interested until the end.
5. …Longing for some social commentary: Such a fun age By Kelly Reid
The Reese Witherspoon book club is the kind of thing, it seems, is destined to be a Reese Witherspoon prestige display at a certain point: there is an inability of white women people may”mean well”, but there is also suspicious of the motives; and the”outsiders”of certain types of epithelial world, as well as a large number of secrets and misunderstandings. Reid’s first novel—focus on the complex relationship between a young black nanny and white mother of the girls in her care—will have you giggling and cringing in equal measure. You will tear it a day!
