It’s that time of year loves!! This time last year I had my Editorial Internship at Penguin Random House and if you haven’t heard yet, I got another one this year!! I am working again back at PRH as a Marketing and Publicity Intern for one of PRH’s biggest Imprints, Random House and Crown. They’re originally two separate imprints but they are currently in the process of merging which means I get to work with both teams and both their lists! It’s already been such an incredible adventure and I’m only in my third week! So for this post I want to share some of my latest book reads with you, some I have read and others I have not but they’re amazing books that are worth the read! I’ll do another internship review and tips post after I’ve finished the Internship in May, but for now I want to share with you some of our new titles and some great books that I think you would all enjoy, old and new! I have my first networking event coming up and that will be posted on my instagram so be sure to check that out! Enjoy!

1. Random House Bestseller Stranger Things: Suspicious Minds by Gwenda Bond. I have not personally read this yet, but up in our office we have an Editor’s choice board where each of our many editors in the department post what their current fave book is that we have recently published. With an early February release, this book is based of the hit TV series Stranger Things that follows the adventures of some of our favorite badass kids. It follows the narrative created in the series with add-ins and new stories to be told. This book has hit the shelves of editors and other authors that find the story remarkable.
2. Crown Bestseller Becoming by Michelle Obama. Michelle Obama’s new memoir Becoming has been on the NYTimes Bestseller list since its publication in November of 2018. The center of the book world, Michelle’s memoir has moved to the brand of iconography. Her compelling memoir shares her journey as the first African American Woman to serve the role of the First Lady. This memoir is truly amazing and an absolute must read.
3. Random House Bestseller Born A Crime by Trevor Noah. Noah’s memoir published back in 2016 is still a hot topic in the book world today. Noah’s memoir talks about his life growing up in South Africa during apartheid, born as a literal crime. His mother and father were forbidden to have a relationship and once she became pregnant with Trevor, it was known that their crime could be punishable by 5 years in prison. One of my best friends wrote her senior thesis on Noah’s memoir and his journey in life, now a big time talk show host for The Daily Show, Noah’s success has been accredited to his move through life and constant optimism which can be read in his book.
4. Crown Bestseller Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. #1 New York Times Bestseller Gillian Flynn has written many amazing novels including this thrilling and anxiety inducing novel Gone Girl about a woman who goes missing the day of her wedding. I could not put this book down when I started reading it, it’s thrilling and compelling nature allows you to move threw suspects in the novel and asks you to question everything you perceive to be true. Flynn’s writing is brilliant and allows you to flow from page to page fksdjf;kl jsdljfkl;jsl;kdflkjsdk. jf; with ease and attraction to finish the story.
Let me know what you think of these books or if you’ve already read one, leave a comment and tell me what you think! Look out for my post about the internship and my Graduation coming in May!
