A REMARKABLE book regarding race, class, and America's rarely acknowledged and thoroughly set-in-stone CASTE SYSTEM. This may be the most important book to read, understand, and internalize, in this century!! We must learn, then we must DO something.
Melania & Me –
1. Do NOT feel sorry for Melania. She does exactly what she wants, she knows exactly who she married and they’re well-suited for each other. 2. Keep one eye on Ivanka at all times. 3. The first couple are surrounded by grifters & opportunists.
This is a perfectly timed collection of quotes to inspire every U.S. citizen. Though flawed (let's just agree he was HUMAN) Jefferson remains one of our greatest founding fathers; ever-hopeful, ever-visionary, ever-stressing non-partisan citizenship.
I love Shaun’s writing. Just when I thought I couldn’t love anyone more than the eccentric Nicky, he introduces Emanuella/Granny. Another fantastic escape into the never-dull world of the secondhand book trade.
I thoroughly enjoyed this laugh-out-loud memoir. Jost is an intelligent, thoughtful, witty, downright FUNNY guy. Perhaps something you didn't expect from the "milkiest" member of SNL? And..I didn't want to punch him in the face once, while reading.
The parallels between the current pandemic and this one, are downright uncanny. It's another terrifying look at what happens when ambition, greed, commerce, politics, media, distrust, and rumors cast a shadow of suspicion that clouds the SCIENCE. Apparently, humankind is doggedly insistent upon repeating history.
Another beautiful, richly detailed, and evocative story from Parry!! She steps so ENTIRELY into the world of the animals she writes about that you feel yourself sitting on the shoulder of a young wolf, or gliding on the back of an orca wayfinder. Readers navigate the perils of a changing environment, the dwindling food chain, mans' often dangerous interference, loss and separation alongside powerful Vega and her little brother Daneb. Such a STUNNING novel.
Ibram gives a powerful dissertation on the differences between NOT being a racist and being an ANTIracist. It's a complex subject that deserves personal study and reflection. When we know better, we do better. There's literally no better time to read this book than RIGHT now.
The pace of Mandel’s latest novel is intentional & precise. Her cast of characters emerge in conjunction with the crashing of a massive Ponzi scheme. Who gets out? Who stays too long? What are the payoffs? What is sacrificed? What an EXCELLENT book!
I read BECAUSE of the buzz. This is a window into the perilous journey of the displaced. Anytime books softens hearts, break down walls, or confront uncomfortable & inconvenient thoughts, they absolutely SHOULD be read. This IS the book for our time.
Glennon is a thought leader, a speaker, and activist. There’s a reason Jesus only wrote in sand and not stone. We’re MEANT to erase and reinvent. She is past ‘the making’ and is now 'MADE'. She's a gd CHEETAH! Glennon Doyle is UTTERLY life-changing.
Before escaping Korea, Lily’s Halmoni (grandmother) stole star stories from tigers, who walked upright...like men. Now the tigers have found Halmoni, weak and old, and they demand their stories back. Lily must choose: look a tiger in the eye and make a deal to save her Halmoni...or run for her life. Can you trust a tiger to keep its word?? This is a beautiful, rich, colorful tale about family, love, death, and the impossible bargains we make along the way. Tae Keller is a MASTERFUL storyteller.
When a storm cuts the power & closes all routes into & out of a remote mountainous community, one boy goes missing, another dies. A witch in the malicious Wicker Wood sees a harbinger of death. The writing is captivating & evocative. I was hooked!!
Did God make us in His image? Or did we make Him in ours? Shelving the topics of religion & faith, & focusing SOLELY on the history of God, Aslan creates the perfect manual for theologians & laymen alike. I GOBBLED it up. His writing is captivating!
This is one of the creepiest books I’ve read in ages! It’s 2 parts Blair Witch Project, 1 part The Exorcist! If you like portal fantasies, mockumentaries, horror, hauntings, & scary stories to keep you up at night...look no further, it’s hhhhere....
