This book was so enjoyable- if you liked Red, White, and Royal Blue, give this one a shot. It's got some really fun tropes, too- enemies to friends, fake dating, and buttoned up/messy match.

This graphic novel is a coming out story, a fitting in story, an immigration store, a loving family story, and a fairy tale, but it is so much more than the sum of all those parts. Read it- you will not be disappointed.

Lalli Music is a food director at the Bon Appetit Test Kitchen, and I love watching her videos- they make cooking seem like such an accessible, intuitive activity, and her first cookbook is no different. I think anyone could learn something from this book from technique, to recipe and laid-back do-what-fees-right cooking.

I really enjoyed this book that tackles sisterhood, insurance scam, and how to come back to a home you felt desperate to leave. Jayne and June are flawed to say the least, but so relatable.

Published: Simon & Schuster/Paula Wiseman Books - October 1st, 2019

This book checks off so many of my favorite children's book boxes: a girl marching to the literal beat of her own drum? Check. Parents who encourage creativity? Check. A wolf who's sorry he ate someone else? Check yes. Forsythe pairs a lovely, fairy tale-reminiscent story with gorgeous artwork. You'll want to join in Pokko's parade- just be sure to get behind the wolf.
