I loved this book. It's very rare for me to give 5 stars to any short story collection written by anyone but George Saunders, but Quade had me mesmerized with her characters. Each story is so real and layered that they beg to be read over and over ag ...more

I'm working my way through genres I do not normally read and this one filled a PopSugar Challenge requirement (a book published the year you were born). It held my attention! I was more than a little creeped out. I enjoyed the time period and the set ...more

I may be alone here, but the only thing more boring than cleaning is reading a book about cleaning. I just grabbed it from the library because it is very popular right now and I wanted to get an idea of what it is about. What I am taking from this is ...more
