Complex relationships are at the heart of each of these female-penned reads.
Everything I Know About Love, Dolly Alderton
An exceptionally honest memoir about being a young woman in the world. Dolly Alderton captures the full experience of growing up and getting by with eloquence and piles of wit. She also has excellent taste in music.
Little Fires Everywhere, Celeste Ng
Everyone is telling you to read this book, but it’s for a good reason. Little Fires Everywhere is a deeply complex, dynamic read centred around the intensity of youth and complicated mother-daughter relationships. It's so enthralling in fact that new queen-of-female-fronted-television, Reese Witherspoon has teamed up with Kerry Washington to executive produce and star in a limited series adaption of the title.
The Interestings, Meg Wolitzer
A book for long, slow nights by the fire, The Interestings is a book who’s greatness creeps up on you. An absorbing read about youthful arrogance, uncomfortable realities and the unpredictability of life – this book will get you through the last few days of winter.
