I can sum up my thoughts on books with one Joan Didion quote: “We tell ourselves stories in order to live.” Here are a few of the types of books that give me life: graphic novels, YA with queer themes, well-researched non-fiction, books that make me laugh, books that make me cry, and anything that makes me stop and think. Oh, and queen Joan Didion herself, of course.

I am a sucker for any Mary Oliver book, and in this collection of selected poems she's picked her own best works. It's a unique peek into the mind of one of my favorite poets. The poems are also fluid and beautiful. [Karen]

I'm a junkie for women's sports ever since I watched the 1999 Women's World Cup final. I picked this up originally for Mia Hamm, but there's so many unsung heroes in here! The illustrations are so fun and it's packed with facts. Meet awesome athletes from soccer and roller derby to skydiving! [Karen]
