Review – Slaughterhouse-Five

After a six-year gap between my first read and a reread, I have decided that this all-time favorite book is still an all-time favorite book of mine.

Review – Bonfire

Krysten Ritter’s debut novel is a dark mystery rooted in a rural town buried under a decade of secrets, and I surprised myself by loving every minute of it.

Review – Fahrenheit 451

Have I mentioned Ray Bradbury is my favorite? My reread of Fahrenheit 451 made me fall in love with its acclaimed discussion of dystopic censorship all over again.

Review – Dark Places

Dark Places has more than a few dark spots, but Flynn is ultimately compelling with her creepy scenarios and outrageous twists.

Review – Little Fires Everywhere

Little Fires Everywhere is a gem, and if you like intense character development, vivid narrative tones, and asking the big moral questions, you’ll think so, too.

Review – The Philosopher’s Flight

Tom Miller’s story of a male philosopher (magician) is vast and detailed; it technical and realistic, but the real magic begins where the human spirit starts.

Review – How to Stop Time

How to Stop Time is a thorough piece of fiction that strides through the centuries and asks us when we should stop looking back.

Review – Post Office

My first Bukowski read is a darkly funny, semi-autobiographical story about a bitter postal worker combatting mundanity and poverty, and I have one very large, problematic bone to pick with it.

Review – Animal Farm

Animal Farm is an enduring, classic criticism of the consequences of human greed, labor exploitation, and capitalism, and it is an allegory after my own heart.

Review – Circe

Madeline Miller’s captivating new novel, Circe, is an empowering modern narrative of the legendary Greek witch.

Review – Red Clocks

The premise of Red Clocks-a world where abortion is illegal-reeled me effortlessly in, but the prose made me stop and think.
