Here I Am: A Novel | Jonathan Safran Foer
post image
Pickpick

In my opinion this is the authors strongest novel yet. The story felt so personal at times that it made my heart ache. The anguish of a struggling modern family, the right's-and-wrong's of religion, what it means to be human. This book is Foer's bleeding heart.

Ghosts | Raina Telgemeier
Pickpick

Loved LOVED loved this sweet graphic novel. I was excited to read and see a different culture being portrayed. I could tell that Telgemeier did her research with this one. Highly recommend!

Before the Fall | Noah Hawley
Pickpick

I knew this book was going to be good before I even picked it up. After finishing it I was NOT disappointed. Noah Hawley is an awesome story-teller with a true talent for writing. I felt like I personally knew every person in the book.

I love this paragraph written by Klosterman in his chapter titled "The Case Against Freedom." Really enjoying his latest book- it's smart, funny, and feels very modern. Well done!

The Gene: An Intimate History | Siddhartha Mukherjee

In reference to an Augustinian abbot dissuading Mendel from using mice for his experiments. "...giving peas a chance." I love when scientific books are funny.

An interesting and informative book on seven of the most famous human fossils. Comes with lots of pictures! At around 200 pages this book is accessible enough for even the most novice of armchair anthropologists. 💀💕

A serious undertaking by any means, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle shows Murakami's full potential with every page. I love the way he combines surreal stories within a real world context. This book will be a favorite for the rest of my life.

Soppy: A Love Story | Philippa Rice

Pickpick

I would find images of Philippa's comics online and send them to my boyfriend, without knowing she had an entire BOOK. These are endearing and all very "aww-worthy." So sweet!

Life of Elves | Muriel Barbery
Pickpick

What a magical story. The author mesmerized me with her writing talent! Don't think LOTR elves here-more like mystical beings with deep connections to animals and nature. Overall this is just a beautiful story.
