My enjoyment of post-apocalyptic, dystopian fiction is waning heavily these days. In particular, Ive never been a fan of The Roadstyle stories of survival of small groups. So The Marrow Thieves was fighting an uphill battle, yet Cherie Dimaline ...more

My boss, fittingly, gave me Bossypants! She gave it to me in June after I broke my elbow, and I promptly put it on my shelf and did not read it, like I do with most books. But now is the time! The time to read Tina Feys comedic memoir.

Lets start with

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
"A lot has already been said, discussed, talked about, and mentioned about this book series. And I understand why, so far it's a really great series! I don't really think I have anything new to add to this discussion, but I'd like to share my thoug..." Read more of this review »

Men Explain Things to Me by Rebecca Solnit
"So I've obviously been seeing this book around for years, and reading a lot of the feminist work that I have been, it's been popping up more and more frequently. I snagged this free during my last round of Audible binges, and I put it on over the..." Read more of this review »

Nick Harkaway
“… it had almost nothing to do with computers, the modernity I was trying to understand. Computers were the bones, but imagination,ambition and possibility were the blood. These kids, they simply did not accept that the world as it is has any special gravity, any hold upon us. If something was wrong, if it was bad, then that something was to be fixed, not endured. Where my generation reached for philosophy and the virtue of suffering, they reached instead for science and technology and they actually did something about the beggar in the street, the woman in the wheelchair. They got on with it. It wasn’t that they had no sense of spirit or depth. Rather they reserved it for the truly wondrous, and for everything else they made tools.”
Nick Harkaway, Gnomon

Heather O'Neill
“I stuck a barette with a silver star into my black hair. If I was going to be popping my head in and out of bars like a wife who was looking for her husband who had just got paid and was squandering all the money, at least I was going to look unbelievably fantastic while I was doing it.”
Heather O'Neill, The Girl Who Was Saturday Night

Heather O'Neill
“Oh, we had a lot of sex back then in Montreal; it wasn’t just me. Blame it on the cold. The roses in everyone’s cheeks made them seem way more appealing than they actually were. We confused the indoors with intimacy and electric heating with connection.”
Heather O'Neill, The Girl Who Was Saturday Night

Christopher Moore
“Latin, Greek, and English, plus a smattering of Italian and fucking French.” “Fucking French, you say? Well . . .” “Oui,” said I, in perfect fucking French.”
Christopher Moore, The Serpent of Venice

Christopher Moore
“True, I am drunk, and small, and damp, but mistake not my moistness for weakness, although there's an argument to be made for that, as well.”
Christopher Moore, The Serpent of Venice
