Introducing Cracked Spines: A monthly column about what we're reading and loving here at Good & Gold.

UNTAMED by Glennon Doyle

Cover of book 'Untamed' by Glennon Doyle

You can take big, decadent bites out of this memoir. Nourishment and empowerment for the feminist soul (or any soul, really).

CRAFT IN THE REAL WORLD by Matthew Salesses

Cover of book 'Craft in the Real World' by Mattew Salesses

A reevaluation of what craft means outside of the definition established by white male writers and their cultural values. Recreate the workshop, revisit the syllabi, remake a culture.

A MEMORY CALLED EMPIRE by Arkady Martine

Cover of book 'A Memory Called Empire' by Arkady Martine

Science Fiction geopolitical space opera, please stand up! Like a more inclusive Star Wars fused with a less sexually violent Game of Thrones, this Hugo Award-winning tome (just under five-hundo pages) examines power, colonization, and what it means to love a place that’s hurt you before.

THE PRINCESS DIARIST by Carrie Fisher

Cover of book 'The Princess Diarist' by Carrie Fisher

Speaking of Star Wars… We’re actually listening to this one! Read by the late, great Carrie Fisher herself and her daughter Billie Lourd, this grammy-winning audiobook has us cracking up AND tearing up all at the same time.


YOU ARE A BADASS by Jen Sincero

Cover of book 'You are a Badass' by Jen Sincero

Most of us are really bad at seeing how great we are. This book won’t put up with that shit anymore— YOU ARE A BADASS and now it’s time to start acting like it, y’all!
