We love an obscure silly holiday as much as the next person. And we’re going all out on Bubble Bath Day with our very favorite engrossing books and bath accoutrement. So turn on that hot water, throw in your favorite bubble bath, and get ready for a relaxing evening at home.

 

Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid

In Kiley Reid’s debut novel Such a Fun Age, protagonist Emira is sent home with an open bottle of the most expensive wine she’s ever had. Channel that literary energy with the grocery store equivalent – or hey, treat yourself to whatever white your local liquor store recommends. You’re not going to want to get out of this tub ever; that’s how good Reid’s book is. So choose your wine pairing carefully.

The Ensemble by Aja Gabel

The characters in Aja Gabel’s incredible book The Ensemble spend a lot of time in hotel rooms, traveling away from home as they perform in cities around the world. Which is why we’re recommending that you prep your fluffiest robe for an Ensemble-centric bubble bath – one that feels like it was nicked from a hotel room. Do yourself a favor and throw the robe in the drier right before bath time. Because once the water turns from hot to room temperature, you’re going to want to wrap yourself in a warm, fluffy hug.

The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

Reading The Sun is Also a Star feels like a literary explosion, with Nicola Yoon in the conductor’s chair. Which is why we’re recommending a bath bomb for this fast-paced, deeply moving literary adventure. You won’t even mind the way your fingers and toes turn into raisins as you page through this young adult whirlwind. You’ll just be thinking about Natasha and Daniel and the universe they inhabit.

Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff

One of the many many reasons we love Fates and Furies is the fact that this one story contains so many possibilities. Which is why we’re recommending a solid bathtub tray while you read this novel – one that’s big enough to hold all your favorite beverages, with room to spare when you just have to put the book down for a minute. Because there’s nothing that pairs better with a Lauren Groff novel than a nice long think.

Geekerella by Ashley Poston

If you’re worried that your bubble bath might turn into a pumpkin at midnight, grab a copy of Geekerella by Ashley Poston and fear not! Throw on a sheet mask – the relaxation equivalent of a masquerade costume – and relax in the beautiful bubbles. Because what’s more magical than a quiet hour in a warm bath?
