Lipstick & Magazines #46: Lit

I've been stumbling upon some really lovely novels lately. Not necessarily joyous, heartwarming books, but sad, heartful, contemplative ones, so-called "domestic" novels, about life and love and families and flaws. If you're in the mood for the same:

The Center of Winter by Marya Hornbacher

A Wild Ride Up the Cupboards by Ann Bauer

The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards

Torch by Cheryl Strayed

And then if you want to lighten it up, I loved The Brooklyn Follies by Paul Auster and continue to love the obscene sweetness at The Daily Kitten.
