Everything's Trash, But It's Okay by Phoebe Robinson

Phoebe Robinson’s new collection of essays will make you laugh out loud and is a great tutorial on being trash but forgiving yourself for it while still being able to name the things that are #serioustrash. These essays get real about the sitch of our union—calling out nonintersectional feminists, internalized sexism, our workaholic culture, and toxic sosh meeds (social media). Written in classic Phoebe stream-of-consciousness style, this is the perfect antidote to the garbage fire of 2018. - Kelly

...And Then You Die of Dysentery by Lauren Reeves

In this fun book, comedian Lauren Reeves leans into ’90s nostalgia with quirky, snarky lessons from the beloved Oregon Trail computer game. Who knew that the dangers of the trail are the same things we face in life? - Clara

#SAD: Doonesbury in the Time of Trump by G.B. Trudeau

Trudeau continues to skewer Trump and his administration’s corruption with satire that helps relieve the strain of watching the dismantling of civility and democracy; the stoking of racist, xenophobic, misogynist ideas; the ache of worry about the environment and future of climate. His cartoons do what satire does so well: Reframe the “ideas” being presented to point out how absurd they really are. The book is a relief to read in the midst of an alarming political time. - A.P.

I Might Regret This by Abbi Jacobson

Abbi Jacobson (of Broad City fame) set off on a solo road trip from New York City to Los Angeles in an impulsive attempt to shake off heartache from a breakup. This quietly introspective and sweetly self-deprecating essay collection brings readers along on Jacobson’s cross-country trek and shows us that we’re never too old to figure out who we are. The raw honesty and startling vulnerability of this book took me by surprise, inspiring me to take stock of my own path. - Kelly
