The Best Books To Read Right Now

We don't know about you, but sometimes we can feel overwhelmed by too many options. Panic sets in when we encounter a menu that's more than three pages. Similar anxiety occurs when we enter a store with too many racks of clothes. It's just too much. So, you can bet that we run into some trouble when we're trying to pick a book to read. And, we're not looking for something to pass the time: We want a book that will blow our minds. So, we asked R29 staffers for their recommendations. Ahead, the 10 titles you've just gotta pick up. Apologies in advance if you're up all night with a page-turner.
