I was sent a review copy of this one a few months ago (thanks ECCO books!) and am just now getting to it. To be honest, I can’t say it sounded overly much like I’d be into it. So, I wasn’t rushing to get to it. Plus, I’ve been working hard to focus on female… Continue reading Nothing to See Here
I’m not sure what it was that drew me to think book originally, perhaps the cover (the colors and design really catch your eye), perhaps it was the title (again, something about it is really attention-grabbing), perhaps it’s because I heard it was based on a hit podcast and, though I’m not into podcasts, that… Continue reading Welcome to Night Vale
I’d heard a lot about this collection, both on bookstagram and listed in numerous online pop culture “top books” lists. The praise was wide and deep and, though I am not always one for shorts stories, convinced me fairly quickly that this was a collection I needed to experience.

A few months ago, this tiny book was everywhere and, while it really didn’t sound like anything particularly striking, people seemed to be really enjoying it. And, I am, as ever, a sucker for hype. Long story short, I added it to my TBR and, when it became available at my local library, I was… Continue reading Convenience Store Woman

So, I added my name to the “holds” list at the library. Three months later this (adorably tiny) book was ready for me to pick up! My… Continue reading My Sister, the Serial Killer
Ok, the buzz around this book was off the charts at the end of last year. It seemed like it burst onto the scene out of nowhere and was inspiring some of the most hardcore love/hate reader reactions I have seen in a long time. There was no middle ground anywhere! When I realized it… Continue reading My Year of Rest and Relaxation
I found this book as a used book store a few years ago and, having heard of it once or twice, decided to buy it. Since then, I have seen it more and more and, as I’m sure most people know by now, the movie adaptation is coming out late summer. So I’d slowly been… Continue reading Crazy Rich Asians
I had heard of this book in passing, but really had no idea what it was about at all. I think I’d seen someone on Instagram post that their mother was listening to the audiobook and loving it, had told her it was hilarious. So when I was looking for a new audiobook at the… Continue reading Where’d You Go, Bernadette?
