The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy

Review: I wasn't sure what to expect other than everyone raves about this author and I had to sit with it all a while to decide what I really felt about it. It's a powerful book and a little hard to read sometimes but also strangely beautiful. Trigger: death of a child. It's right in... Continue Reading →

The Moonlit Garden by Corina Bomann, translated by Alison Layland

Review: I listened to this one, narrated by  Justine Eyre. It was about 12 hours long, but it passed by quickly with this fun read.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Review: Never have I ever related so much to a character. Okay, her background is TOTALLY different, but her general outlook is so exactly the same. Her choices are so similar and the reasoning for choosing them are so similar. It was crazy. The rest of the characters were great in their own way as... Continue Reading →

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Review:   One of the secondary characters shares an anecdote with another character that I think sums up what this book is really about. It's that if you put a frog in boiling water, it'll jump out, but if you put a frog in cool water and set it to boil, the frog will be... Continue Reading →
