The Things We Cannot Say by Kelly Rimmer
"I don't know how I came upon this book, but I'm glad that I did. Kelly Rimmer did an awesome job with these characters who all captured my heart."
The Book of Gutsy Women by Hillary Rodham Clinton
"I just couldn't get into the book. It was a little to elementary for me. That said, I think it would be an important book to have in a school library or classroom library. I think there are young girls who would enjoy a first glimpse at a collecti..." Read more of this review »
Invisible Women by Caroline Criado-Pérez
"This book is going to make you angry. Good. We all should be angry about the systemic ways in which women are discriminated against and ignored. "
The Good Neighbor by Maxwell King
"While I think the book could have said what it needed to in half the time, I think that it has the tone of Mr. Rogers. All of the kindness and heart you could imagine came through in this book and I feel lucky to have watched him in his prime on T..." Read more of this review »

The Toll by Neal Shusterman

Considering how I devoured the first two books in this series, this one was slow, slow, slow for me and very “put-downable” for much of the experience. It’s not that I wasn’t into it, because I was. It just didn’t grip me like the other two books... ...more

I Am C-3PO by Anthony Daniels
Does the book give any spoilers for the final movie? I'm listening to the audio book, but I don't want spoilers before I see Episode 9, so I want to know if I should stop for a bit... TIA

Me by Elton John

SUCH an enjoyable listen. I like Elton John’s music, but I don’t know it well... only the really popular stuff and, of course, The Lion King. But I loved hearing about his life. He was frank and brave and honest about his strengths and weaknesses. I ...more

Anne Lamott
“Love and goodness and the world’s beauty and humanity are the reasons we have hope.”
Anne Lamott, Almost Everything: Notes on Hope

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen

Maya Angelou
“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
