I Read...

Cruddy by Lynda Barry

Where to begin…? I LOVED the tone of this book. I think it sounds exactly as an angry, cheated 16-year-old would. The main character is Roberta Rohbeson and does she have a tale to tell. 75 more words


A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan

This book weaves a fascinating cast of characters between present day and the 1980’s rock scene. In fact, I think it’s a brilliant example of how a modern book can be structured.  57 more words


My Shelfie from 2015

2015 was a good year for reading. Somehow I managed to finish 50 books. Now you’re probably thinking that in order to do that I had to read a little every single day but that really couldn’t be further from the truth. 170 more words


The Light Weight of Rad Women

There is something wrong with this picture.

I recently stumbled on this book, Rad American Women A-Z at Urban Outfitters, sitting sad and small next to Kim Kardashian’s enormous collection of selfies. 92 more words


All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Doerr writes of Marie, a blind French girl, who leaves Paris with her father at the beginning of WWII to stay with a reclusive uncle in Saint-Malo. 79 more words


Wind / Pinball by Haruki Murakami

These two short novellas were the first works published by Murakami and are now back in print. They tell about a young guy and his friend, Rat, and touch on a lot of themes – friendship, loneliness, inertia, vocation, and love. 44 more words
