Goodreads Review: Parlkand: Birth of a Movement by Dave Cullen

Four star review, originally posted here on May 19, 2019. Dave Cullen’s “Columbine” is easily one of the best, most important books I have ever read. And so I could not wait to get my hands on this, his second book, as soon as it came out. It is a very different book in many … More Goodreads Review: Parlkand: Birth of a Movement by Dave Cullen

Goodreads Review: Year of Miracles by Geraldine Brooks

Four star review, originally posted here on April 26, 2019. So my favorite author is Tony Horwitz, and when I heard his new book was coming out, I took a look at his website in hopes of a book tour, and from there I learned that he’s married to another author names Geraldine Brooks. “Huh,” … More Goodreads Review: Year of Miracles by Geraldine Brooks

Maybe even a … More Goodreads Review: My Beloved World by Sonia Sotomayor

Goodreads Review: Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates

Four star review, originally posted here on March 5, 2019.   A beautiful and thought-provoking work. I saw someone else that this- I listened to the audiobook, which was perfect because you can hear the author’s true tone, but I also wish I’d had a print copy on hand because I was constantly wanting to … More Goodreads Review: Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates

Goodreads Review: Stephen Fry’s Victorian Secrets by John Woolf and Nick Baker

Four star review, originally posted here on February 26, 2019. I have no clue if this even counts as a “book,” but I’m counting it anyway cuz I need to inflate my stats after losing so much reading time already this year painfully slogging through the depressing mess that was Fear. Ugh. Anyhoo… This was … More Goodreads Review: Stephen Fry’s Victorian Secrets by John Woolf and Nick Baker
