1. The Anthropocene Reviewed by John Green

John Green’s first-ever non-fiction book is based on a podcast released in 2018. In The Anthropocene Reviewed, Green talks about the modern geological age and reviews how humans have helped shape the world we live in today through a five-star scale.

A collection of essays, The Anthropocene Reviewed is Green at his most generous and honest self: offering interesting insights on the everyday mundane as well as snippets of his life as a bestselling writer, husband and father, and ultimately, as a person with mental health disorder.

John Green fans are in for a treat as the author himself will talk about The Anthropocene Reviewed in Fully Booked Chats: John Green happening on August 13, 6pm. This free event will be streamed via the Fully Booked Facebook Page.

4. Bad With Money: The Imperfect Art of Getting your Sh*t Together by Gaby Dunn

Bad With Money: The Imperfect Art of Getting your Sh*t Together by Gaby, named one of the top 10 podcasts in 2016 by the New York Times, is a humorous, entertaining, and empowering book about financial literacy. In just three years, the podcast has been downloaded 4 million times.

The writer-comedian Dunn shares the stigma that leads to our shame, embarrassment, and anxiety towards money comes from the inability to speak honestly about it. A must-read for Millennials and Gen Z’s, this book discusses basic financial topics for those who never formally learned about management or investing from the perspective of someone who was (and admittedly, still is) bad with money.

5. Welcome to Night Vale by Jeffrey Cranor and Joseph Fink

Welcome to Night Vale is based on the popular podcast that started in 2012. Eerie and, at times, funny, the novel is structured like a community radio show for the fictional desert town of Night Vale.

Strange and paranormal experiences such as ghosts, angels, and aliens are part of everyday life in Welcome to Night Vale—in this place, conspiracy theories are deemed to be true. The novel follows the story of 19-year-old Night Vale pawn shop owner Jackie Fierro and Night Vale PTA treasurer Diane, who is trying to reconnect with her son, Josh.

The stories of these women come together in a story that touches on portrayal of family, social satire, horror, and fantasy.
