Lately, I’ve been leaving my phone on my desk and taking a book to bed instead of scrolling through Instagram or emails. It’s a ritual that I’ve started looking forward to, especially once I’m a couple chapters in already. Maybe you’re already an avid reader or maybe you’re looking to get back into it – either way, we have page-turners waiting for you. And of course, a perfect pair of readers to go with it so you can actually read.
To Paradise by Hanya Yanagihara
An ambitious, moving novel set over three centuries, the author of A Little Life and editor of T Magazine is back and better than ever. One of the most anticipated books of the year.
Our Country Friends by Gary Shteyngart
A sharp, hilarious satire from one of our biggest comic writers, Our Country Friends is a story about a pod of intellectuals waiting out a pandemic at a country estate. You’ll laugh out loud.
Palace of the Drowned by Christine Mangan
Moody and mysterious, immerse yourself in the twisted, entangled lives of two women set on the verge of the famous floods in 1966 Venice.
No One Is Talking About This by Patricia Lockwood
The first novel from poet and Twitter comedian Patricia Lockwood is a hilarious and original exploration of the Internet she rose to fame on.
Friends and Strangers by Courtney J. Sullivan
An intimate look at the life of an accomplished journalist new mom and her college student nanny as the relationship between these two very different women gets more and more complicated.
With the page-turners out of the way, it’s time to get a new pair of glasses. CADDIS is one of our absolute favorites, and their new Velma shape is a beautiful, bookish brown tortoise with a fun retro lens. Krewe’s petal pink circle glasses are a statement making pair, too.
For something a little more classic, you can’t go wrong with the square MIKLOS Caddis glasses, a cat-eyed black pair, or a cool blue pair of aviators.
