Borne: A Novel | Jeff VanderMeer

There's a giant bear, an evil corporation, & a talking plant anemone thing, all with a sort of Margaret Atwood *MaddAddam* vibe. What a strange, weird little book you are...

John James Audubon was a complicated, talented man of his times, & this graphic novel both explores his contradictory nature & pays tribute to the beauty of his work.

The Handmaid's Tale | Margaret Atwood

Watch it, then read it, then watch it again, then read it, and watch it again, and read it one more time... so rare when a book adaptation lives up to the hype! 📖🖥❤️

KCorter I was going to reread this before watching the show. Do you think a refresher is necessary? 3y
ABookishLife Not at all. The world-building on the show is excellent & you don't need to read the book to become immersed in the show. 3y

This book is wrong--Prince never fell; he just got a little more eccentric! One year after the death of the His Purpleness, we blasted Prince's music in the library all day. This is what it sounds like when doves cry. 🕺🏽☔️🕊

If *The Handmaid's Tale* is Pence's America, then *Bitch Planet* is Trump's. Of course Pence & Trump could not plan for all the badass women who would rebel against their patriarchal dystopians. #BitchPower

This comic is weird, quirky, Millennial, satirical, & gross because of all the boogers. It's also a murder mystery (or is it?) set against the glamorous New York world of secretly insecure fashion bloggers. Take your allergy meds & check out the irresistible Snotgirl.

"Many species of Old World monkeys have strange sitting pads on their bottoms called ischial callosites." Who knew? An informative, beautifully illustrated book about our "quirky cousins" the monkeys.

The Wanderers | Meg Howrey
post image
Pickpick

I love the idea of living on Mars, both the fantasy & the science of it. My latest red planet read is *The Wanderers,* in which three astronauts live & work a real-time 17-month-long Mars mission simulation in isolation. It's about questioning reality, chasing dreams, & choosing which stories we tell ourselves & our loved ones.

Re-reading the *Wrinkle in Time Quartet* as an adult is an interesting experience. I'd forgotten how strange & wonderful these books are! Also, Louise the Larger is the best character.

Discovering the graphic novel version of *A Wrinkle in Time* made me remember how much I love this book--and it was cool to see how the artist imagined Aunt Beast! I'm extra-excited for the movie adaptation next year!
