Love these threads. I’ve read a bunch of good things recently, although not all of it would be considered light reading.
I’ve been on a bit of a domestic thriller kick lately, and I really liked the two most recent books by J.T. Ellison- Tear Me Apart and Lie to Me. I’ve also read What She Knew by Gillly MacMillan, which I enjoyed. I also read American Kingpin, about the founder of the Silk Road site. Love.
I’m just starting I Was Told It Would Get Easier by Abbi Waxman, about a mom and her teenage daughter on a college tour. The mom is a lawyer, which I like- there’s also some spot-on discussion of sexism in the workplace.
Favorite (“favorite”) passage so far:
“The board is concerned that if we promote too many women at once, it will look like we’re reacting to social pressure.”
“Social pressure to promote capable people?”
“Which other women are up for partnership?”
“Janet Manolo. Just Janet.
