Michelle's Favorite Books 2021

We Play Ourselves by Jen Silverman
A playwright, who feels she has lost the ability to create meaningful art and finds herself in the middle of a scandal, escapes New York to go to the place she deems has the least culture: Los Angeles. There, she becomes involved in her new next-door neighbor's film project, a real-life Fight Club-inspired documentary featuring high school girls. I liked how this book explored the ethics of art and I grew attached to the playwright and the girls she worked with, despite and because of their flaws!
The Kingdoms by Natasha Pulley
I loved the characters in this alternative history novel! They made the adventure-filled story even more compelling and gave the explorations of time and relationships much heart.
Braised Pork by An Yu
This novel weaves magic realism throughout a woman's quest to find the origins of a mysterious drawing left by her dead husband. As she travels and meets new (and old) people, she discovers ties to her own past that make her journey not just about the drawing, but about herself.
Penny Nichols by M.K. Reed, Greg Means, and Matt Wiegle
This graphic novel follows a woman who gets involved with making an independent horror film. Despite that, the story is far from horrific -- it is greatly humorous, and it was fun to see the chaotic workings that go into making a film!
