    In search of that next great read? Well, look no further! Following the success of R29's first sartorial book club, we're bringing you a bigger and better part two — and, just in time for the long, holiday weekend. Since we harbor an overwhelming number of bibliophiles within our ranks, gathering worthy recommendations wasn't too difficult.

Spoiler alert: The 14 books ahead may consume your entire Saturday night. But, rest assured, they're totally worth it.
