Is Everyone Hanging Out without Me? (And Other Concerns)

Mindy Kaling is hilarious, not in an "lol, I realize this is humorous on an intellectual level" kind of way, but in an "I am actually giggling so hard I'm hitting my nose on the pages of this book, and now I'm that crazy person laughing alone in her room while reading" way. Unabashedly relatable, Is Everyone Hanging Out without Me? (and Other Concerns) is the funniest book I've read all year.

The Casual Vacancy

J. K. Rowling's new book is a little like Harry Potter — if Hagrid never came to collect Harry and instead the novel focused on the dysfunctions of the Dursleys and all their neighbors. That being said, The Casual Vacancy still possesses Rowling's uniquely addictive storytelling, and you'll soon find yourself needing to know what will befall the small town's inhabitants next. Though frequently dark, it has a quaint and charming quality that makes it the perfect book to curl up and read by lamplight while drinking tea on a winter's night.
