Summer Books 2018

We're at the library, on the beach, and by the pool with our noses in books/kindles. And you know we're all about the stories that share and expand on women's experiences. This week we hear from Jessica Knoll about The Favorite Sister, her novel full of murder and scandal set in the world of reality TV. Glynnis MacNicol's memoir No One Tells You This is full of dispatches on life after 40 when you don't follow a spouse-and-kids blueprint. Yrsa Daley-Ward is perhaps best known as a poet, and her new memoir The Terrible uses that precision of language and feeling to explore her youth.Reading list:Novels by Jessica Knoll: Luckiest Girl Alive, The Favorite Sister...and essays: I Want to Be Rich and I’m Not Sorry, What I Know (trigger warning: description of sexual assault)No One Tells You This by Glynnis MacNicolBone and The Terrible by Yrsa Daley-WardShare your faves using #cygbooks!
