I drink it when I’m sick or sad or cold... I adore almost all tea (particularly earl grey de la creme!). I also love learning about tea! This book teaches about the history, methods of preparation, and I loved reading it. #MSWL fiction or nonfiction about tea!

Ummm... Anne Enright is just one of the best writers of our time. I adore the way she writes about the ordinary and extraordinary... #MSWL (but no really, if you’re the next Anne Enright, hit me up)

This is a gorgeous gutting memoir about a woman’s fight for her daughter with cystic fibrosis. It’s moving and emotional and this is all I want in a memoir! #MSWL

Reading The Wood is like... well it’s like living in a wood for a year. Nature writing like this reminds me to slow down and really look at the world around me, and I’d love to see more of it in my inbox! #MSWL

My first taste heady taste of the richness that is Beef Bourguignon, my grandmother’s creamy mashed potatoes cooked in a cauldron-like pot... my best memories come from food I ate with family and friends... which is why I’m absolutely desperate for food writing like this! #MSWL

Mudlark combines history, legends, and stories along the shores of the Thames! I love books that go deep into niche hobbies or jobs like mudlarking (someone who scours mud for objects of value!) #MSWL

Like many of you, I grew up with Laura and Mary and Little House on the Prairie, and I was thrilled to find this retelling of the story from “Ma’s” perspective. It is a tender and lovely read and makes you think about all the women who’ve silently done the work. #MSWL

A deeply disturbing gorgeously written thriller from the POV of the psychopath. The main character is reminiscent of Amy Dunne with the same brilliance (and insanity!). #MSWL

Yes, I have two copies of the same book. I NEEDED both of them. Because I adore everything about this book. It’s hilarious and sad and lovely and moving and really quite important to me... in a startling way since its a short story about a fox. Send me writing like this! #MSWL

This is EXACTLY the kind of historical fiction I love (and want!). A brilliant multi POV novel about spies and secrets and the importance of literature (Dr. Zhivago) during the Cold War. The multi POVs can be confusing but I highly recommend reading! #MSWL
