Day FIVE of ALU Season's Readings are two debut book picks for the hopeless romantics who judiciously watch Hallmark holiday movies and know all the lyrics to Wham!'s "Last Christmas."See more details below
Find the mistletoe with these two book recommendations for the Romeos and Juliets on your gift list and get 'em for a lovely 15% off until December 13th!
If hopeless romantic is your giftee's modus operandi, Bindu Suresh's gorgeous novel-in-stories 26 Knots (Invisible Publishing) will be the modern Romeo and Juliet-esque story they'll love. A sultry debut full of entangled love affairs, ill-fated couplings, obsession, and heartbreak, this literary debut is beautifully told through poetic-like vignettes. There's nothing ill-fated about gifting this lyrical page-turner.
A playful and poignant novel Little Blue Encyclopedia (for Vivian) (Metonymy Press) is a love letter of a novel narrated by a queer trans woman who's working through the unrequited love she has for her friend, Vivian, who died. This one's for anyone who has ever loved, lost, and binged A LOT of TV to ease a broken heart. A roadmap for how art and pop culture help us through tough times, Hazel Jane Plante’s debut novel will provide all the feels your hopeless romantic giftee craves.
