It‘s hard to say I enjoyed this book because it‘s all about anorexia, but I did because Zgheib is an excellent storyteller. I loved the character development and was routing for the characters through out!

Just finished the third. This was always my favorite as a kid. I still really enjoyed it especially read by Jim Dale.

I had the amazing pleasure of interviewing this poet! She was the first Poet Laureat of Grand Rapids and had just wind awards for her poems in pretty large ways! I loved this book! She has an amazing way of including humor in her poems but also just leaving you breathless

This book was so good. I couldn‘t put it down. If I had played my cards right I could have read it in one sitting. The character development was amazing and I learned so much about deaf culture. One of the best I‘ve read this year so far.

I have never been this addicted to an audio book. I couldn‘t stop listening! It was very culture rich which I loved and a cute little romance.

The prose is this book was beautiful- haunting - so much metaphor there was a part of me that wanted to know what she was talking about but it wouldn‘t have been as powerful

The Trees: A Novel | Percival Everett
post image
Pickpick

This is from the Pen/Faulkner Longlist. I could have read it in one sitting it was super good! A fast paced mystery: white men linked to past lynchings start getting murdered in ritualistic fashion. The author kept me on the edge of my seat and surprisingly, despite the seriousness, made me laugh with his dry humor many times.

I found myself so into this book I lost track of time. It was a beautifully written memoir of a Chinese family‘s immigration to American. It was sad and inspiring but just shows how poorly we treat immigrants.

This was so well done! I loved the way they broke it down to subject areas like housing and education. The poetry and short stories in between was a fantastic way to bring emotion and humanness to a lot of information.
