I recommend this to word nerds because it is an interesting story. The chief contributor to the OED was a schizophrenic murderer who made his contributions to the dictionary from an insane asylum. Bam! That qualifies as worth reading in my book. This ...more

Love the Tex-Mex culture in this book! The recurring cascarones (eggs filled with confetti) motif, the words of wisdom or dichos at the beginning of each chapter and throughout the narrative add charm to this young adult novel in which the main chara ...more

Every girl who reads this becomes the girl who catches fire. This book speaks to the strength in us all, the universal desire to survive in the bleakest of times. It is written in clear dispassionate prose to tell an ugly story of dystopia without li ...more

It's been a while since I've read historical fiction. James Michener for me is the be all and end all in this genre; I love his meticulous historical research that melds seamlessly with sweeping family sagas, political and governmental dynasties. He ...more

John Irving
“Every American should be forced to live outside the United States for a year or two. Americans should be forced to see how ridiculous they appear to the rest of the world! They should listen to someone else's version of themselves--to anyone else's version! Every country knows more about America than Americans know about themselves! And Americans know absolutely nothing about any other country!”
John Irving, A Prayer for Owen Meany

“When we think of the past it's the beautiful things we pick out. We want to believe it was all like that.”
Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale
