Not book related, but my big guy lost his battle with lymphoma today. I am devastated and can‘t imagine not having him around anymore. 😰

It is 2035 and the Apricity machine can read DNA to tell a person the simple things they can do for happiness. This quirky novel reads closer to linked short stories and I really enjoyed it. I found the concept unique and the writing engaging.

gradcat It does sound different in a quirky way...actually sounds great! But who I really want to compliment is your dog! Love, love, love ❤️ 13mo

Charles Wang became wealthy after moving to the US from China but has now lost everything in the Great Recession. We follow his travels across the country as he and his family grapple with their new circumstances. I feel this book would have benefited from some editing and I‘m frustrated by the ending, but Chang does a great job of showing realistic family dynamics and a non-white experience in the US.

Montgomery is an author and naturalist who writes of her experiences with octopuses (the correct plural) mainly at New England aquarium but also in the wild alongside fascinating facts. Her enthusiasm overflows the page, making you want to interact with these amazing creatures yourself. I found this books completely delightful. 🐙🐙🐙

This is a fascinating thought experiment about what could happen if one could change the world with dreams and the way innocuous or even well-meaning desires could go horribly wrong. I did feel the characters were held at a bit of a remove but the concept is great.

Amber is in a coma and trying to remember what happened to her. We are taken back to the events leading up to the incident as well as forward in the hospital and back to childhood. This mystery/thriller is really well done—through the first 3/4 I had no idea how it would all link together. And I‘m still thinking about what some of it might mean. A great debut.

Not book related, but too cute not to share. Clearly #Bindi and #Gunther have bonded. They are begging for pizza together. 😂

While a definite pick, I‘m struggling with what to say about this book. It is largely an exploration of character and society in the Brexit era, revealing similar divisions as are present in the US and in much of the (white) world. It was at times a bit too abstract for me, then there would be such a beautiful passage I would be floored. I‘ve never read Smith before, but I‘ll definitely be reading her again.

I‘ve learned in my recent reading life (the past few years) that I really like essay collections, be they personal or journalistic. This is a great example of the former. Daum writes about her mother‘s death, her love of dogs, her choice not to have children, and more. Her essays are by turns heartfelt, sad, thoughtful and laugh out loud funny.
