Read more fiction

Magical, mysterious, gorgeously written fiction.
It should come as no surprise that we love reading it, and recommending it.
But we also recognize that each of us has different tastes in books, so you’ll never find a “must-read” list here. We do, however, like to offer suggestions. All the books listed here are ones we’ve read and adored.
These are the books that remind us of why we fell in love with reading in the first place. The ones whose stories make us want to read through the night like we did when we were kids, or whose exquisite language and imagery make us want to slow down and savor every sentence.
Maybe give one or more of these a try, if you haven’t already?
