Run, Rose, Run, By Dolly Parton and James Patterson

Staff Pick

Dolly Parton could write an oven manual and release an accompanying nose harp album and I’d be thrilled. So maybe I’m a little biased when I say that I thought this book was the bomb diggity. I’d had it on pre-order since the queen announced it months ago because, as you may have deduced, superfan here, and I’m psyched to say that I wasn’t disappointed. Honkytonks, alley fights, fierce feminism, and a tractor-trailer hijacking all in one neat package! So, whether you’re into Dolly Parton, James Patterson, or don’t give a rattlesnake’s tushy about either one and just want a fun read, pick up Run, Rose, Run and get ready for a rootin’ tootin’ good time.

Don't Call It a Cult, by Sarah Berman

Staff Pick

I am a crime junkie through and through and nothing captures my attention quite like a good cult. Oh, I’m not supped to call it that. Erm, nothing captures my attention quite like a good sex trafficking pyramid scheme/harem disguised as a self-help organization. From NXIVM’s beginnings as an MLM in the 1990s, to the demise of its leader in 2019, Berman expertly lays out every odd detail of  what's been dubbed a “sex cult.” Warning: there’s rape, branding, and…volleyball? Also, the Dalai Lama.
