I’m trying to read more graphic novels because they’re woefully underrepresented in my reading repertoire, and this one was recommended by more than one trustworthy source. This book is such an on-point representation of what it’s like to be young: carefree and daring, opinionated and selfish. It’s that moment when you’re still learning but want to believe you know everything. Reading it is bringing back embarrassing recollections of my middle grade years, but also making me feel that much closer to the effortless joy and freedom that summer brings no matter how old you are. —Kelly
Cassey Ho is my fitness idol. And maybe life idol. This is her first book and it mimics the style of her YouTube videos. She’s divided the book into the four seasons, acknowledging that each season brings different fitness needs. Plus there are recipes galore! Number one on the agenda for my weekend is picking up ingredients to try a few of them out. —Kelly
I’ve sometimes wondered about Jon Cryer, who most of us know primarily the second player in Two and a Half Men. Where did he come from, where has he been, and where is he going? In this memoir, Cryer offers readers a front-row seat as he reminisces about his life and experiences in showbiz over the past thirty years. —Bob
