21 Quarantine Reads From Your Favorite Authors

"Many authors are finding comfort in pandemic-centric fiction. Like Crissy Van Meter, who is hunkering down with her copy of Gabriel García Márquez's classic novel Love in the Time of Cholera. Or Gish Jen, who's reading They Came Like Swallows, an epic about the Flu Epidemic of 1918 and how it impacts one individual family. But other novelists are seeking out escapism by way of their bookshelf. Abby Jimenez is devouring romance novels like The Honey-Don't List, which has many parallels to the Netflix rom-com, Set It Up. And Stephanie Wrobel is all about the incisive take on celebrity culture and reality television, Followers.
Read on for the 21 books your favorite authors are keeping calm with during quarantine. Let them inspire you, entertain you, and above all, offer you a little levity."
