    Modern Lovers

    Emma Straub’s first novel, Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures, was just wonderful, and then she followed it up with The Vacationers, which I devoured.

    First Comes Love

    Emily Giffin is a powerhouse. I’ve long been a fan of her work—2014’s The One and Only actually managed to fill the Friday Night Lights-shaped hole in my heart—so First Comes Love went straight to the top of my TBR pile the moment it came out. Known for pitch-perfect love stories, Giffin turns her voice to writing about the bond between sisters. You’ll want to dive in with this one.
