Top Five Reads with Ellie Rowsell of Wolf Alice

With the colder weather there’s plenty of time to sit down and read a good book, so in no particular order Ellie from Wolf Alice offered us her top picks.
1. Just Kids by Patti Smith – I read that a long time ago but I really like it.
2. I don’t know who it’s by because it’s by a collection of people, but the biography of Edie Sedgwick, that was a really good read, really long but if you can get through it’s really interesting. (Possibly Edie: An American Biography by George Plimpton and Jean Stein).
3. The House of Spirits by Isabel Monday
4. The Secret History by Donna Tartt, although I haven’t read that in a long time so maybe if I re-read it I wouldn’t like it so much. But at the time I absolutely loved that.
5. I really love this collection of short stories by Miranda July called No One Belongs Here More Than You.
