She wanted to be an interstellar starship captain when she grew up. Since nobody was hiring, she became a writer instead.

When not commanding imaginary starships, she lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, son, and feline overlord.

Literature becomes “classic literature” when it includes two things:

1. Timeless themes that transcend culture, period, and setting.

2. A penetrating view of the current culture, period, and setting.

Nathan Hill’s debut novel The Nix (Knopf, 2016) is a

The first installment in this omnibus is a work of art. The rest is great, too, but the first one is what hooked me. Howey does a great job keeping you uncertain about the truth of what's going on in the silo. You think you've figured it out, then he ...more

Marquez's writing somehow manages to be both simple (in the sense of easy to follow, not simplistic) and lush at the same time. He builds this town of Macondo with such vivid detail that I felt like I'd grown up there. This is a beautiful book, full ...more

Les Misérables by Victor Hugo
Rate this book

If this isn't my favorite novel, it's definitely in my top five. Jean Valjean is one of the most complex characters ever put on the page. His conflict with Javert, the rich and detailed setting, the moral ambiguities ... it's a work of art.

This book solidified my status as a Sanderson fangirl. Why? One main reason.

I genuinely didn't know whether the world would be destroyed at the end.

Sanderson does such a masterful job of worldbuilding, and creating problems so large that you can't po
