Georgia Clark, the author of The Regulars and her latest novel, The Bucket List recently shared her reading list with She Reads. What book is she reading next? Providence by Caroline Kepnes. Find out what she reads, now!

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

“I finished this monster of a novel months ago and my mind still drifts regularly to Emily St. John Mandel’s vision of an infant future, post-societal collapse. This novel works on every level – prose, structure, character, theme – to deliver a confident and closely observed sci-fi about survival. Powerful and deeply human dystopian fiction.”

Inappropriation by Lexi Freiman

“Fifteen-year-old Ziggy Klein struggles to find her place in the complex eco-systems of high school, family, the Internet and society at large in this broadly eccentric satire of identity politics. What makes this fearless novel truly hilarious is Lexi Freiman’s dry, offbeat eye and (what I’m calling) New Australian sense of humor. Wonderfully ridiculous.”

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

“Eleanor Oliphant is a socially inept loner with no friends, no career prospects, no relationship… and she is completely fine, thank you very much. Or, so she thinks. This first-person coming-of-age invites you into the head of the extremely particular Eleanor Oliphant, in a hopeful tale that cleverly straddles the genres of (non-traditional) suspense and romance. The most arresting narrator I’ve read in years.”

Goodbye, Vitamin by Rachel Khong

“Clear-eyed, compassionate, clever. Ruth returns to her family home to help care for her father Howard, who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. By making the domestic universal, Rachel Khong elevates one family’s story to show us something of the human condition. For fans of wry observation and absurd humor.”

Standard Deviation by Katherine Heiny

It’s Graham’s second wife Audra who’ll have you laughing out loud in this cozy, charming debut novel. Forty-one-year-old Audra is a domestic Rolodex of the couple’s New York neighborhood; knowledgeable about everyone, able to befriend anyone, with an opinion about everything. This deceptively simple portrait of a modern marriage works much like Audra herself: you might plan for a few pages until you look up and it’s past midnight, and where did the hours go? I’ll tell you: you spent them in turns wondering at and laughing with Audra Daltry.”

Postcards from the Edge by Carrie Fisher

“I love an acerbic female narrator, and Suzanne Vale will not disappoint. I was tossing up between this and Fear of Flying, but this is more fun and penned by the great talent that was Carrie Fisher, exposing a subject she knew all too well: addiction. To fame, sex, money and love. If you love Hollywood underbelly stories, this is a great throwback read (I recommend the audiobook).”

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

“This book is soooooo sexy. Forget your Christian Grays: Josh and Lucy will have you squirming just as much as they are! There is so much delicious sexual tension in this cute, odd couple workplace comedy. Perfect for a holiday (or horny) mood.”

On Beauty by Zadie Smith

“My current read! While Zadie Smith is technically such an impressive writer on a craft level, she’s not a snob. I’m equally charmed and intrigued by the Belsey family: Zadie’s characters are just as captivating as the big ideas about race, class and family that she so effectively brings to life. Can’t wait to see where the plot takes me next… ”
