Kelly’s Pick

Kelly’s Pick

With exciting new releases hitting shelves each week, deciding what to read next can be a challenge. Kelly’s Pick is a new seasonal feature on Bookish.com aimed at helping book clubs discover their next read. The Bookish team isn’t just suggesting the book—we’re using it for our own book club as well and giving you all our goodies. Get ready for exclusive reading group content like discussion guides, author interviews, food and drink suggestions, playlists, and more to pair with each title we select! Find out more about Kelly’s Pick here.

U.K. author Candice Carty-Williams’ debut is darker than the bright orange cover would lead you to believe. Queenie’s realization that her life isn’t going according to plan leads her into a dangerous downward spiral. Her passion for journalism, particularly reporting on movements like Black Lives Matter and Me Too, isn’t encouraged at work. Her boyfriend turned their break into a break up. And her mother… well, Queenie doesn’t like to think about her mother. But when Queenie realizes it’s time to confront the issues she’s been running from, she starts a journey towards healing and self-acceptance.
