Kristin Hannah knows how to end my reader’s rut. I get so enthralled in the stories she writes that I lose myself and finish her books in a matter of days. The twists and turns were a touch predictable, but the story still manages to evoke tears and ...more

My sister recommended this book to me ages ago, and I finally got around to reading it. This must be my year for native Americans and hillbillies. Haha! I loved this book. Little Tree had a strong voice. The stories made me feel closer to the mountai ...more

Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance
Rate this book
Clear rating
J.D. Vance does well enough when it comes to describing his life, and how it relates to others in similar circumstances, however I felt that he held back a lot of information. It was hard to really connect to him and his experiences, and it felt like ...more

To say that I consumed this book quickly wouldn't be accurate enough; rather, it consumed me. The story of Tara's childhood and education is gripping, and haunting. It vaguely reminded me of The Glass Castle, wherein the vail of childhood idealisms i ...more

This book was fascinating, important, and sad. It's a huge piece of history that is glossed over. I'm embarrassed to admit that I had never heard of the Osage murders before reading this book. The author succeeded in preserving a piece of history tha ...more

I was shocked at how quickly I read this book. It had beautiful flow. It gave me a new perspective of what World War II did to the Koreans, which isn't a perspective I've read much about. The characters are dynamic and well developed, and the culture ...more

The Tender Bar by J.R. Moehringer
Rate this book
Clear rating
I struggled to get into this book at first, but toward the end I couldn't stop. This is the story of a fatherless man seeking out men and finding a bar. It's about his trials and errors, and how the bar (and those in it) shaped him. "'What's it about ...more

Plainsong by Kent Haruf
Rate this book
Clear rating
Kent Haruf does an amazing job at painting a picture of life in the small-town of Holt, Colorado. By the end of the novel you feel as though you know the characters well enough to predict the outcomes of the unanswered future. This book left me feeli ...more

Magical Thinking by Augusten Burroughs
Rate this book
Clear rating
To preface this review, I haven't read Running With Scissors, or any of his other books. I enjoyed the overall tone of this book, and he had some fun, light-hearted stories. It was mostly about relationships. I enjoyed his writing style enough that I ...more
