Getting ready to go on a getaway? The last thing you want is to feel stressed about stuff like arriving at the airport on time, who’s going to dog sit for you or maybe (definitely) what to pack.

Thanks to the internet, a new book recommendation list is just a few clicks away, but what about the things that aren’t new or notable at the moment? For some less-expected suggestions, we checked back in with the creative women we’ve gotten to know over the past few years (all of whom we’ve written about on this very blog). Here, seven recommendations as unique as they are. There’s a long novel, some short stories, a few new-ish titles and some that are quite old.
