Amazing. I wanted to jump into every scene. It was told with such lush detail I felt as though I had know these characters my whole life. The plot is quirky and explores deep existential questions while still coming off as not too pretentious. The family dynamics are whip smart and as the woman who sold me this book said: "After you read this you won't look at yourself in the mirror without thinking about this book." Read to find out why!

Always up for re-reading this incredible and raw memoir. Not only makes me a better and inspired writer but a truly better person. Review up soon!

Dying: A Memoir | Cory Taylor

Wow! Obama knows how to pick um. Dying was nothing short of an incredible read full of philosophical inquiry and universal insight.
Roses: An extremely honest and lyrical book that meditates on what it means to die slowly and have to contemplate death. There were many lines that I had to reread because they were so poignant.
Thorns: I felt as though some of the sections meandered and were more like diary entries.

Halloween doesn't have to be over yet! Loved this spooky gothic. This ending had the most delicious twist!

Wow! I can't believe I have never read this before! If you are looking for a good psychological thriller this one will keep you up at night.
Roses: The point of view is incredible. You will be surprised and completely drawn into the narrator, Merricats fantastical perspective. The ending made me really reevaluate the entire book. The work is populated by women and makes a strong point about their domestic roles.

An incredible and necessary read! I love finding new voices that are able to recreate poetry to tell their story.

I thought we could kick things off with one of my favorites that I have been revisiting. If you are looking for an empowering, queer memoir this is the book for you!
Roses: This book is beautiful written with passages that will make you feel. I mean you may put down the book because something hits you that hard. The narrative is unapologetic and wise. There is no forced arc as there are in many memoirs.
A great read
