The Books Bustle Editors Escaped Into Last Month

We’re all dealing with the coronavirus pandemic and our subsequent quarantines as best we can, and it really shows in our roundup of the best books Bustle’s editors read last month. From funny essays to seriously introspective memoirs, we’ve turned to a wide variety of genres to keep us entertained in these trying times. And we’ve collected the best of what we read last month for you to check out below.

Looking for something funny to take your mind off of the news? You’re not alone. Sex & Relationships Editor Iman Hariri-kia loved Nora Ephron’s I Feel Bad About My Neck, a humorous essay collection on women and aging. Whereas Executive Editor Christina Amoroso took the time last month to read Educated, Tara Westover’s memoir of growing up off-the-grid in the western U.S. And Bustle UK Executive Editor Sam Rogers also explored the themes of loneliness and isolation. Rogers read Olivia Laing’s The Lonely City, which uses the author’s experiences of living by herself in New York City to explore the meaning of alone-ness in Western culture.
