Clear rating
This is an interesting read about putting together a dictionary. Miura attempts to make it more interesting/relatable by adding bits about the editors lives, which are sweet and cute and involve a lot of ramen. The translator should get as much ...more

The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan
The Middle Place
by Kelly Corrigan (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
I hesitate to judge memoirs too harshly. After all it is someone's life, someone's truth, and who am I to say they should feel or behave differently? However, I would say that I don't think Kelly and I would be friends. She has gone through some some ...more

The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi
The Water Knife
by Paolo Bacigalupi (Goodreads Author)

DNF. I loved the idea of a future where water becomes a commodity so precious that wars are started, corporations scheme for it, and speculation about stores of it get people killed. I often try to reason how much offensiveness I should tolerate to ...more

The Wife by Alafair Burke
The Wife
by Alafair Burke (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is a quick mystery/ thriller. The ending was a little obvious about halfway through, but it was still an intriguing narrative with an unreliable narrator, and plays on our own tendencies to judge situations quickly, especially in sexual ...more

The Tiger's Wife
by Téa Obreht (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is a beautiful book with some flashes of genius in it. I have no doubt that Obreht will become one of the great authors of our time. This would be brilliant but it is almost as if Obreht is not confident that audiences will be happy with a ...more

The World Doesn't Require You by Rion Amilcar Scott
Rate this book
Clear rating
These aren't stories for everyone. They walk the fine line between reality and fantasy and lace it with plenty of things that could be offensive. But I feel like Scott's writing opens up a new landscape to talk about perspective, belief, race, ...more

This Life or the Next by Demian Vitanza
Rate this book
Clear rating
Such a great insight into a culture I didn't understand as much as I thought I did. What a great way to give voice to people who are dismissed and shunned as terrorists, violent, intolerant. Instead I learned that some jihadists truly sacrifice for ...more

The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer
Rate this book
Clear rating
This mildly entertaining story about a shy girl who ends up becoming an active feminist not-so-subtly ticks off the major (and minor) arguments about feminism. What does it mean to be feminist? Should feminism be about seminars and education, or more ...more

Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is totally what you would think a collection of short stories from Tom Hanks would be. Fortunately (unfortunately). They are mostly feel-good stories that have hints of darkness, which he doesn't explore, but instead focuses on the optimism. My ...more

One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus
Rate this book
Clear rating
Definitely one of the more well-thought out, well-told YA books I've read. Each voice is authentic and deals with the stresses of teens trying to fit in and the pressure they feel to succeed. If I guessed the ending, it's only because my daughter ...more
