Robin by David Itzkoff: Amazon has this book listed as the #1 best-seller in the category of “Suicide” – spoiler alert! I guess that’s what I get for not supporting my local indie bookstore.


The Run of His Life: The People V. O.J. Simpson by Jeffrey Toobin: Apparently this is both a real story and a critically-acclaimed series adapted by FX. Go figure. I hear Sarah Paulson was an amazing Marcia Clark.


The Bling Ring by Nancy Jo Sales: I blame Sofia Coppola for making this movie for me to watch back in 2013, as well as the real events that occurred between 2009-2010.


Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff: I actually spoiled this one for myself by both living in the daily hellscape and assuming the worst of the worst.


How to Eat a Peach by Diana Henry: I’ve had a peach before! I also saw the film Call Me By Your Name.


The Art of the Wasted Day by Patricia Hampi: Admittedly, I didn’t read the synopsis. I just assumed it recounted how I self-sabotage my every weekend.


Why Baseball Matters by Susan Jacoby: Another example of self-sabotage where I knew before it started what the surprise twist was: baseball doesn’t matter.


Like Brothers by Mark Duplass, Jay Duplass: I have a brother. I get it.
