Books. Recipes. Articles. Movies. All that stuff!
Once in a while we’re going to get vulnerable and talk about it, OK?
Here are some of the books I received for Christmas and devoured the past couple months. In no particular order, I highly recommend them all.
The Sentence — Louise Erdrich
It’s a ghost story in an independent bookstore. But it’s also hilarious and complicated and you will fall in love with Tookie.
The Goldfinch — Donna Tartt
Yes, I’m late to this party, but I’m glad I came. Gorgeous. Haunting, but also incredibly visceral at the same time. Completely absorbs you. Boris is my new hero.
Matrix — Lauren Groff
Lauren Groff is increasingly my favorite writer. This is her newest and if you’re in the mood for some 12th century religious ecstasy, female power and resilience you can’t do better than this. I’ll read this one again.
Please Don’t Sit on My Bed in Your Outside Clothes: Essays — Phoebe Robinson
Laugh out loud funny. Equally thoughtful and wise. Few people write in their own conversational voice with the power she does.
The Book of Form and Emptiness — Ruth Ozeki
This one kind of breaks your heart, but it’s also mischievous and liberating. If you’re of the book nerd, library lover variety you will 100% dig this.
