As avid followers of Eva Chen, we like to imitate some of her most stylish moves: the #evachenpose, switching out our bagel for fruit on our morning commute, and of course, indulging in the same literary choices. The resident New Yorker is a bookworm starting yet another trending hashtag, #saturdaybookclub, which gathers all of Chen’s current and past reads onto a feed that her readers can easily follow. We’re taking inspiration from #saturdaybookclub to navigate our own way through the literary minefield this fall.
With a mix of her coined favourites as well as some of our picks for the best fall reads, keep scrolling to check out our book wish list this fall!

Ah, the ‘90s. Before the hustle and bustle of social media, the untouchable fashion industry was only for the world’s most exclusive VIPs.
