1. Bowlaway by Elizabeth McCracken
I have an ARC of this on my kindle, but I’m kind of afraid to read it. I know it’s going to be great. I have yet to be disappointed by a book Elizabeth McCracken has written. She is, after all, the author of my (probably) all-time favorite book The Giant’s House. And yet. . .
Anyway, look at this description: A sweeping and enchanting new novel from the widely beloved, award-winning author Elizabeth McCracken about three generations of an unconventional New England family who own and operate a candlepin bowling alley.
It might as well be called, hey Jodi, you’re gonna love this.
2. Season 5 of BoJack Horseman
This is one of my go to comfort shows. At any point in time I’m in the midst of watching either The Good Place, The Office, Parks & Rec, Bob’s Burgers, or BoJack.
3. boygenius EP
Usually I couldn’t give a shit about an EP. But Phoebe Bridgers + Lucy Dacus =😍. I know Julien Baker is in there too, but I’m not as familiar with her work.
4. My Brilliant Friend
I’m so excited about HBO’s adaptation of this (even though “Sharp Objects” stunk) that I’ve begun to re-read Elena Ferrante’s “Neapolitan Quartert.”
