Lucy Gayheart by Willa Cather

“Life itself is the sweetheart. Yes i do get it and yes i will live this way and i love this book i love it so much and i take it as a great sign.”


The Little Book of Feminist Saints by Julia Pierpont

“I absolutely ADORE the @thejuliapierpont creation which is #thelittlebookoffeministsaints out now in stores and online! This book is vibrant, useful, exciting, so smart, and a complete treasure. Buy it for yourself or a young person or a friend or any human! Thank you to my brilliant pal Julia & @powerhousebooks for this gift.”


The Faraway Nearby by Rebecca Solnit

“If you need a little more courage, (just like I often do), reading Rebecca Solnit will really help. Every time I peek back in, I learn more. Knowledge is the number one thing that helps me to be confident and makes me want to use my voice.”


Marlena by Julie Buntin

“Happy Birthday to my beautiful father @ronslate. I bought him “Marlena” by @juliebuntin, which, by the way, I suggest you read asap ❤❤❤❤”

She loved this book so much, she bought it for her dad too.


The Sunlit Night by Rebecca Dinerstein

“My mom went to the library to get The Sunlit Night by @rebeccadinersteinbc I told her how I read it in 2 seconds bc it is so gorgeous and lovely and smart and fun, just like the author. Highly suggest you read this book this summer or during your life in general.”


The Woman Who Rides Like A Man by Tamora Pierce

“Hey @zoe.kazan. Look what I recovered. One of our bibles and books that sparked our holy connection here on earth. 💥”
