What We’re Reading 8/5

It is Wednesday once again, and we all know what that means: brand new reading recommendations from your friendly neighborhood booksellers! Scroll on to see what books have caught their eye this week.



Death in Her Hands by Ottessa Moshfegh

This book breathed such a disturbing haze of madness, it settled deep in my bones. When I was finished, I had no answers, only a vague fugue of disquietude — and I was totally fine with it.







The Midnight Lie by Marie Rutkoski

Like no meet cute I’ve ever seen before. The Midnight Lie kept me up far past midnight. Sid and Nirrim are the bickering, reluctant soulmates you’ve been waiting for. A masterfully woven mystery in a world so detailed it’s tangible. …and they were cellmates.







Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer

Equal parts Native American history, climate science, botany, and poetry, Kimmerer’s Braiding Sweetgrass slips in like a long bittersweet draft. Quiet and forceful, dismaying and buoying, scientific and magic!
