The year 2019 is approaching its curtain call. During a stressful time marked by limited daylight, holiday shopping, and somber weather, literary escapism is certainly warranted - and as a new Insider Picks fellow, I found solace in a good book after spending weeks scouring Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals for our readers.
