Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s time for a new episode of What Should I Read Next.
Today’s guest is Anissa Davis, a family physician who lives with her family in California. She likes smart, funny, contemporary fiction with diverse protagonists, and she wants to be blown away by more books.
I think many of you will relate when Anissa says sometimes finding great fiction feels like kissing a lot of frogs before you find your prince. Anissa says she has Very High Standards, so recommending books to her was a privilege—and also kind of terrifying.
