This book was amazing and devastating and definitely responsible for me crying on the train three times

Rising Strong | Bren Brown

As always, Brené Brown is freaking fantastic and totally kicked my butt. I almost feel bad about how destroyed this book got in its travels.

Getting back into it after a stressful few weeks at work! And what better way than with a supernatural mystery? I mean seriously

A little hard to get into this one but that might be because I‘ve got the figure skating on in the background...

Fun and light and very Mindy Kaling. Not all of the book has aged well but it was a good palate cleanser!

It‘s freaking hilarious and a super quick read. I stole it from my brother in law and I don‘t regret that.

This book is beautiful and haunting. The author‘s candor is amazing as is her perspective on herself and on her illness.

This book is so good and will definitely make you hungry. But it‘s real strength is in deciphering and deconstructing the messages around us that make eating complicated. Instead, this book is about eating because it‘s good and that‘s a message we could stand to hear more often.

This book is raw and revelatory and a great way to lose track of time on your lunch break

Raising Steam | Terry Pratchett

#riotgrams - Day 10: Book Deserving More Readers. Raising Steam is the rare fantasy book that challenges us to fight for justice, not accept the status quo, and genuinely look forward to a better world. It‘s so good.

I appreciate a well written exploration of justice, and I love how clearly and urgently Keller argues for systemic and personal changes so that we can make the world truly just. It's very convicting, a super good book.

Reread this fantastic bit of sci-fi and totally remembered why I love it. It's about a human girl who grows up surrounded by aliens, scrambling to survive, abandoned on a space station in the middle of nowhere. It's like nothing else and I love it. Now I'm going to read the sequel!

I mean, lets be real, we all know this is a good book. I have little to add to the conversation except to say that yes, indeed, it's a really good book. So what to read next...
