1. How to Skimm Your Life by The Skimm: Only the best part of your inbox has come to life in book form. This book is filled with humor, news and life hacks that will keep you grounded and feel like you have some kind of life guide in your hands. From personal finance to politics, there’s not much that The Skimm missed in this book. Plus, it’s a woman-owned business and I’ll never not support those.

2. Very Nice: A Novel by Marcy Dermansky: A famous novelist seduces a wealthy mother and her daughter, but I promise it’s a lot funnier than stomach-turning. We get a peek inside the fabulous life of a wealthy family, that is anything but perfect. I love how this book turns a very serious situation into a very hilarious novel. The characters are clearly flawed, but you can’t help but find ways to relate to them.

Yes, Fall It's Still Happening

THE CHANGE OF SEASONS during a pandemic can happen almost imperceptibly. Suddenly, summer has slipped through your fingers. Fall usually signals the start of a fresh cultural calendar, but this year, none of the clear markers are there. Broadway remains shut down; the pageantry of Oscar season isn’t quite the same when everything’s streaming; release dates are pitched further into the distance, pegged to the hope of some theoretical future. But amid uncertainty, great art can feel like a grounding force, and there’s plenty to challenge, entertain, and debate this fall. The final stretch of 2020 includes some of the most exceptional films, shows, and books of the year: weird clown comedy, the next Big Little Lies–style soap, and the kinds of novels that help you see the world more clearly. Mark your calendars—just maybe use a pencil.
