What We’re Reading 9/16

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Our booksellers are back and can’t wait to recommend some new titles for you. Keep on scrolling to find out which books they couldn’t get enough of this week.


Pain Studies by Lisa Olstein

Rivers of thought that meander through a landscape of daily life; her words carve out fissures of understanding and deep, familiar meaning in what it means to have chronic pain — that there is meaning in it. I came away with a sense that even when you feel most alone with relentless physical pain, it helps to know that pain has been around through the centuries, it is a massive, intricate, fascinating and heartbreaking thing, and there are so many who came before you and so many around you now who also struggle in the dark.



A Rogue of One’s Own by Evie Dunmore

A Rogue of One’s Own is a fun, sexy romantic comedy set in Victorian England as suffragettes campaign for women’s rights. It’s got a wonderful enemies-to-lovers dynamic, a hero who seems like a rogue but is really a big old softie on the inside, and a heroine who is fearless in her pursuit of an equitable world for men and women.

Russell WeinWright is in the weeds! For real, though as his swamp powers manifest, Russell recounts his adventures in this, his own spiral notebook. In best epistolary fashion, Russell works through middle school, relationships, responsibility and his own origin! Neatly tucked into the Swamp Thing continuity, Kirk Scroggs brings a reminder that life is tough and funny!
