Inside the Dream Palace: The Life and Times of New York's Legendary Chelsea Hotel by Sherill Tippins. An icon of American artistic invention, the Chelsea Hotel has been, since its founding by a French socialist utopian in 1884, a cultural dynamo lodged in the very heart of uber-capitalist New York City.

Reading List- Drinking with Men.
Drinking With Men: A Memoir, by Rosie Schaap ("Schaap shares her unending quest for the perfect local haunt, which takes her from a dive outside L.A. to a Dublin pub full of poets, from small-town New England taverns to character-filled bar in Manhattan’s TriBeCa. Drinking with Men is a love letter to the bars, pubs, and taverns that have been Schaap’s refuge, and a celebration of the uniquely civilizing source of community that is bar culture at its best.")
For your reading pleasure: summer books picked by friends old (you know them from Real Simple’s No-Obligation Book Club) and new (you know them from the best-seller lists).

An amazing literary talent who uses language with such fluidity and beauty it leaves the reader in awe. I really need to read more of her books and poetry. I wish I had her writing ability, but I know she works incredibly hard and has unknown levels of passion for her craft.
The Handmaid's Tale
A cautionary tale for women.
21 Books Written by and About Women That Every Man Should Read: “Men, with very few exceptions, won’t read books about women.” Though not exactly a new idea, this pronouncement gains a little force by coming hot on the heels of GQ‘s “The New Canon: The 21 Books from the 21st Century Every Man Should Read,” which contains (you guessed it, drumroll please, etc.) three books written by women. Though we won’t disparage any of the books that made the list, we will offer our own.
With her best-selling debut, "Girls in White Dresses" (An “irresistible, pitch-perfect first novel” —Marie Claire), Jennifer Close captured friendship in those what-on-earth-am-I-going-to-do-with-my-life years of early adulthood. Now, with her sparkling new novel of parenthood and sibling rivalry, Close turns her gimlet eye to the only thing messier than friendship: family.

I cannot stress enough how amazing this book is it literally gave me the feels soo bad. John Green is such an amazing author and the "The Fault in our Stars" is a masterpiece. I cannot wait for the movie on June 6th!! #thefaultinourstars #movie #book #literature #mustread #johngreen #shailenewoodley #nat wolff #ansel elgort #hazel #isacc #augustuswaters #vanhouten #animperialaffliction
| Book 13 | The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. So many mixed emotions about this book. I really had no idea what it was about before I picked it up. I just knew I wanted to read the book before I saw the movie. I liked that it was hard to put down and it contained a great deal of honesty. Although, I'm not sure I liked the end, and by that I mean the last couple of pages. There were also times where you could tell the book was narrated by a grown man pretending to be a 17 year old girl.
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. This is only a Book Worth Reading if you are interested in a well-written story for teenagers. Snappy dialogue, appealing characters, young love, heartbreak, drama, etc. . . . I can see myself loving this book fifty years ago, but I've grown up, and I'm more critical of contrived smaltzy stories with unlikely plot lines.
"So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . ." So very much fun! :-D
Pretty much anything by Neil Gaiman is worth reading.
