If you visited the site over the past couple of days, you may have noticed that it was rebranded as Alanis Morissette Archives and featuring an all-new layout!

I was waiting to make this post about it as I was still fine tuning some of the content pages, but I’m pleased to have it up and running now. I have a TON of content that’s going to be added to the site over the next couple weeks, so make sure to check back and follow the website on Twitter.

Barnes & Noble or Alanis Morissette’s house? It’s hard to tell in Marie Claire’s latest episode of Shelf Portrait, where celebrities, influencers, and famous bookworms invite us inside their homes to show off their personal libraries.

Some of the singer and songwriter’s favorite books include Thich Nhat Hanh’s At Home in the World, Thomas M. Campbell II and T. Colin Campbell’s The China Study, Pete Walker’s Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving, Elaine N. Aron’s The Highly Sensitive Parent, Dave Eggers’s A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius (she’s read this one three times!), and Harville Hendrix’s Keeping the Love You Find. Fun fact: Her all-time favorite book cover is Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat Pray Love, which she first spotted while on tour, and she’s been working on a book for the past 15 years. TBD on when she’ll release it!

Morissette has also been working on becoming a better ally, reading books like Sheila Wise Rowe’s Healing Racial Trauma: The Road to Resilience and Rhonda V. Magee’s The Inner Work of Racial Justice. “This is a time for learning and listening and research and learning about our history,” Morissette says. “I have been very clueless, to be perfectly honest, and these books have been very helpful in opening my eyes and opening my heart and filling me in on what’s really going on from a perspective that I need to know more about so that I can be an ally.” 

Watch Morissette’s full Shelf Portrait video to get a peek at her massive book collection, then order some of her favorite books for yourself.
