The Silent Wife: A Novel | A. S. A. Harrison

"We are all mediums for our own basic truths. All we really have in life is the primal force that moves us through our days—our unvarnished, untutored, ever-present, inborn agency. Life force is the holy ghost in each of us."

Great psychological thriller from my book club crew.

High school teens. Scary monsters. An off-world adventure. The Woods is 💯.

"It seemed to me that the baker had an honest response to the painting. Van Ruijven tried too hard when he looked at paintings, with his honeyed words and studied expressions. He was too aware of having an audience to perform for, whereas the baker merely said what he thought."

Loved reading this one during my trip to Amsterdam.

Elegance of the Hedgehog | Muriel Barbery

"Those who feel inspired, as I do, by the greatness of small things will pursue them to the very heart of the inessential where, cloaked in everyday attire, this greatness will emerge from within a certain ordering of ordinary things and from the certainty that *all is as it should be*, the conviction that *it is fine this way.*"

Men Explain Things to Me | Rebecca Solnit

“You can abolish the reproductive rights women gained in 1973, with Roe v. Wade, when the Supreme Court legalized abortion – or rather ruled that women had a right to privacy over their own bodies that precluded the banning of abortion. But you can‘t so easily abolish the idea that women have certain inalienable rights.” // Grateful for all the men in my life who get it.

Terrifying and beautiful. One man's search for his dissident father who was silenced and imprisoned during Qaddafi's regime should serve as a lesson to us all.

Sundays are meant for lying in bed, on the couch, and reading. "Pond" is so perfectly atmospheric, dreamy and serene and makes me want to observe everything, take it on the pulse.

Sweetbitter: A novel | Stephanie Danler

"Enough with the life-is-short-and-painful-and-you-die-alone bullshit. What a fucking scam that is, you never have to take any risks."

Sweetbitter is a heartbreak between two covers, something rich and divine and life-affirming.

Is there anyone better at the plot twist than Christie? Probably not. Her books are always so carefully plotted and fun to read. Surprisingly lighthearted; no serious stuff here.

WYGB is a great book. Playful with form, ingeniously written and plotted, insightful and funny and at times heart-wrenching, but Semple never misses a beat.
