Get the scoop on what we're reading this month!

September ‘18 TBR List

Remember going back to school and giving up the sweet summer freedom of reading whatever you wanted? That feeling was the WORST. It's been years since I was in that position, but I'll never take it for granted that I no longer have to go through that. (Sometimes being a grown-up is, like, pretty cool.)

Take a tour of our September stacks below, then leave a comment with the books on your syllabus that you selected of your own free will because you're a grownass adult, goddammit!
