Celeste Ng has always had a special place in our heart and bookshelves, with her latest novel Little Fires Everywhere cementing her place as one of the literary greats (good news: it’s also being turned into a miniseries by Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington).

Because there’s no better book recommendation than one recommended by your favorite author, we’ve got access to the books Celest Ng is reading right now! Watch the video below to find out what’s on her bookshelf.

While Little Fires Everywhere is the book that’s on everybody bedside table right now, her debut novel Everything I Never Told You beat both Stephen King and Dame Hilary Mantel to win the Amazon Book of the Year Award in 2014, and remains one of the best novels in modern literary history.

Little Fires Everywhere and Everything I Never Told You are now available for purchase.
