I loved This Time Tomorrow and it's definitely on my list of 2022 favorites. I was 19 in the fall of 1996 so a little older than you, but you really nailed the 1996 of it all. And your dad was amazing and I am so sorry you lost him.

This: This Time Tomorrow: "It’s actually a great present for a) dads b) people who were teens in the 1990s c) New Yorkers and those who love New York d) people who love time travel e) people I went to high school with if they want to see if I make private jokes. (I do.)" is all true!! And thank you for helping me complete all my Christmas shopping (for myself. maybe a couple of other people get some books--once I'm done with them. Ergh. all right...maybe I'll give them a fresh copy.). Cacio e pepe. heaven.

Thank you for the list. I am always looking to add more books to my never ending "To Be Read" list.

P.S. I just finished This Time Tomorrow last night in my cozy chair. It made me smile and cry at the same time. Beautifully written and you captured the magic of the 1990s perfectly.

Thanks for the recommendations. There are a few on here that I haven't heard of yet. I'd love to shop early and despite my best intentions, it never seems to happen. Maybe this year is the first year of a new tradition, shopping early.
