  1. Thank you for a really interesting list – you’re the second person who has recommended Station Eleven, which I tried earlier in the year and just didn’t get. But I’m going to give it another go as I wasn’t necessarily giving it a fair chance…

    1. I think that we aren’t always meant to read books when ever we pick them up? We sometimes have to wait until we are ready before we can like or even love a book? Does that make any sense whatsoever?

  2. The only one of these authors I’ve read yet is Schwab (who I love). I just ordered You Will Know Me by Megan Abbott through my Book of the Month subscription which I’m really excited to read so I’m glad to see you liked her writing. 🙂 I also have Station Eleven on my TBR. I really want to read Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie too since I’ve heard sooo many great things about her writing.

      1. I’ve only gotten a couple of months, but I really like it. It’s great for me because it gets me reading things other than YA since they very rarely have YA selections. I like that it’s easy to skip months, too, since sometimes they don’t have anything I’m that interested in. I definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a new box and don’t mind not getting bookish goodies and only getting a book 🙂
