Happy Mother’s Day!

Our #FridayReads are the perfect way to kick off this Mother’s Day weekend:

MOTHERHOOD by Sheila Heti
A May 2018 Indie Next pick and one of PW’s Spring 2018 Literary Fiction picks with two starred reviews! “The subject of the new novel from Heti is neither birth nor child-rearing, but the question of whether to want a child, which the unnamed narrator calls ‘the greatest secret I keep from myself’…. This lively, exhilaratingly smart, and deliberately, appropriately frustrating affair asks difficult questions about women’s responsibilities and desires, and society’s expectations.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

These books about furry friends are #CuteOverload:

DOUG THE PUG: The King of Pop Culture by Leslie Mosier
Doug the Pug is the King of Pop Culture with over 7 million adoring fans on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat! He’s bumped noses with the hottest stars out there: Justin Bieber, Steven Tyler, Ed Sheeran, John Legend, and Chrissy Teigen, just to name a few. Did you catch him in Fall Out Boy’s latest music video? Doug’s a rising star, but he doesn’t let fame go to his head. He’s a simple dog with a great big heart.

PUMPKIN: The Raccoon Who Thought She Was a Dog by Laura L. Young
As a baby, Pumpkin the Raccoon was abandoned by her parents after falling out of a tree and breaking her leg. Taken in by a family with two rescue dogs, Toffee and Oreo, Pumpkin gained a new set of “parents” and a life of luxury in the Bahamas. Check out Pumpkin’s feature on Good Morning America! “…this book is cuteness overload and will appeal to all age groups.” — Library Journal

AC the cat is back! And his owner Kate Funk has come up with some even more hilarious, increasingly ridiculous costumes for him to model, from Rosie the Riveter, to Max from Where the Wild Things Are, to Marty McFly.

THE SHEPHERD’S VIEW: Modern Photographs From an Ancient Landscape by James Rebanks
Two starred reviews! “Rebanks’ prose and the photographs make the landscape come alive, and woolly sheep pictured against beautiful craggy meadows will entice readers to dream of shepherding. A true gem.” — Booklist, starred review

SAD ANIMAL FACTS by Brooke Barker
Barker’s hand-illustrated collection of the Animal Kingdom’s more unfortunate truths is beyond hilarious and has an amazing book trailer.

ROOKIE YEARBOOK TWO: The Awesomeness Continues

We're totally in awe of Tavi Gevinson. When she was 14 she founded, an independent online magazine made by and for teenage girls. Full of personal essays, advice about style, sex, friends and school, gorgeous photo albums (lots of fashion, natch), it's no wonder that it hit one million page views just six days after its debut! Since then, Rookie's contributors and interviewees have grown to include prominent popular culture fixtures such as Joss Whedon, Miranda July, Jon Hamm, Zooey Deschanel, David Sedaris, John Waters, Dan Savage, and Ira Glass, to name a few. No wonder Rookie now averages 1.2 million visits per month (and counting) and has 205,000 Tumblr followers!

Rookie Yearbook OneLast year's ROOKIE YEARBOOK ONE is like a greatest hits album full of amazing stuff—honest articles, fashion shoot photos, and glittery teen world gems (ie: stickers!). There was so much awesomeness that clearly another book needed to be made.

Enter ROOKIE YEARBOOK TWO, available now from Drawn & Quarterly. This sophomore collection is just stunning as the first, and filled with even more exclusive content, such as contributions from Judy Blume, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, Morrisey, Emma Watson, Molly Ringwald, Carrie Brownstein, and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. Of course, there's also more advice, tons of pics, and lots of humor and pathos. In other words, everything a teenage girl thinks and cares about.
