The Women's Room by Marilyn French

Clear rating
Definitely dated. But still very interesting and important. It's not exactly subtle and there are elements of the silly and absurd to its very '70s-esque critiques of suburbia and the hippie ethos of academia, but the story is compelling and the issu ...more

Beautifully written, easy to read, sort of folksy and biting and mystical the way that Erdich's books always are. The Round House remains my favorite of Erdich, but I liked Tracks quite a lot.

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee by Dee Brown
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is difficult for me to rate. I know it was radical for its time and a crucial text for reframing the way mainstream American history was understood and analyzed.

But it's been almost fifty(!) years since this book was first published, and Americ

Alright, I just have to say this now to get it off my chest: Mark seems like a massive dick. Like, maybe I'm not getting the full picture from the author, but he came off extremely frustrating and unsympathetic in this book. Kinda feel like he might ...more

Why We Sleep by Matthew P. Walker
Rate this book
Clear rating
Y'all, I love to sleep. Love it. There are few things that feel better to me than slipping under heavy covers and closing my lil eyes and going the fuck to sleep. Even just lying in bed makes me happy: it's all warm and cozy and dark/dim and you can ...more

Glory and the Lightning by Taylor Caldwell

3.5 stars.

Taylor Caldwell's stuff is always kind of interesting. In this book particularly, half of the story was thinly-veiled political ranting about her views on American politics and "prophetic" monologues on democracy and the underclass that are

Three stars for being a fun easy read. It was kind of mindlessly entertaining, and I finished it in two days, so there's that. Spoilers ahead.

Beyond that, though, this book was...kinda dumb. Super over the top in its self-indulgence. It seemed like i

The Likeness by Tana French

3.5 stars. Spoilers ahead.

First, I'll just say this: the premise of this book is absolutely ridiculous, and you have to just completely suspend your disbelief to get any enjoyment out of the story. And there's never any far-fetched-but-explanatory re

Phil Klay
“Sin is a lonely thing, a worm wrapped around the soul, shielding it from love, from joy, from communion with fellow men and with God. The sense that I am alone, that none can hear me, none can understand, that no one answers my cries, it is a sickness over which, to borrow from Bernanos, “the vast tide of divine love, that sea of living, roaring flame which gave birth to all things, passes vainly.” Your job, it seems, would be to find a crack through which some sort of communication can be made, one soul to another.”
Phil Klay, Redeployment

Margaret Atwood
“It wasn't so easy though, ending the war. A war is a huge fire; the ashes from it drift far, and settle slowly.”
Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin

Alice Hoffman
“It doesn't matter what people tell you. It doesn't matter what they might say. Sometimes you have to leave home. Sometimes, running away means you're headed in the exact right direction.”
Alice Hoffman, Practical Magic

J.M. Barrie
“Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning. ”
J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”
