“Bossy Pants” by Tina Fey
Summary by Bustle.com:
Fey’s memoir has long been considered a modern classic. There’s a reason why her book continues to get the “must-read” label over a decade after publication: Her essays and advice about crying (or not) at work, female friendships, career, love, and breastfeeding are universal, and she delivers her life story with humour, vigour, and openness.
“Nine Perfect Strangers” by Liane Moriarty
Summary by GoodReads.com:
(Before you watch the series, read the book!) Nine people gather at a remote health resort. Some are here to lose weight, some are here to get a reboot on life, some are here for reasons they can’t even admit to themselves. Amidst all of the luxury and pampering, the mindfulness and meditation, they know these ten days might involve some real work. But none of them could imagine just how challenging the next ten days are going to be.
Combining all of the hallmarks that have made her writing a go-to for anyone looking for wickedly smart, page-turning fiction that will make you laugh and gasp, Liane Moriarty’s Nine Perfect Strangers once again shows why she is a master of her craft.
“My Year Abroad” by Chang Rae-Lee
Summary by Goodhousekeeping.com
This wildly original novel carries us across the world as Tiller, a mediocre college kid, gets tied up with Pong, an international businessman who takes him on the trip of a lifetime. We bounce between those adventures and the life Tiller finds afterward with Val, a single mom in witness protection, as he tries to figure out what it all means. It's by turns dark, humorous, and almost sneakily insightful.
We hope these have inspired you to find a comfortable spot, take some time out for yourself and enjoy a book on “Read a Book Day”!
