It's What I Do by Lynsey Addario
Rate this book

I heard this photojournalist/author interviewed on NPR and immediately requested her book from the library. It's an inspiring, harrowing story of (hu)man's inhumanity to (hu)man and the folks who passionately devote (and often risk) their lives to br ...more

Stardust by Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman is a sorcerer, and his magic takes the form of words.

This sweet little love/adventure/coming-of-age story has left me with such a delicious sense of contentment. Good conquers evil, and all's right with the world. I'll take it. :-)

I couldn't even tell you why I gave this book five stars. It was weird. It was quirky. It tied oddball things together in complex and unexpected ways. Its narrative was so far beyond "non-linear" that it almost defies classification. The characters w ...more

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
"I loved this. It wasn't the best writing, like best crafted lines, but it's a totally addictive story, one that I literally could not put down. I was reading this like Belle in Beauty and the Beast, walking down the sidewalk on my commute home wit..." Read more of this review »

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
Neverwhere
by Neil Gaiman (Goodreads Author)

With a vividly rendered setting out of a dark fantasy, engaging characters whose motives aren't quite clear (in a good, suspenseful way), and plot twists aplenty, Gaiman scores again. What a freakin' genius! Moving on now--finally!--to American Gods.

I would give this infinite stars if I could. I can't begin to find words that even remotely do justice to this beautifully told, spectacularly moving story (or, more accurately, set of intricately interwoven stories). Suffice it to say that I have ve ...more

Having read and benefited from The Four Agreements, I was eager to find out what the fifth one was, and I was not disappointed. Part of this book is a review of the first four agreements, but I didn't feel like it was a waste to have already read the ...more
