Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
"Oh, this is unquestionably a powerful debut by a stunning new voice in fiction. The story of the Lee's and their seemingly perfect lives is one that I think will resonate with anyone who picks up this book. All families keep secrets from each othe..." Read more of this review »
Thomas and 3 other people liked Donna's review of Pachinko:
Pachinko by Min Jin Lee
"Excellent writing. I was unfamiliar with the Japanese/Korean history and felt I learned a lot about it through this book.

It was well-paced and easy to pick back up the next day."
Thomas and 1 other person liked Danielle's review of The Hate U Give:
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
"So I started buddy-reading this with Sam towards the end of the summer, but we both fell behind and she finished it before me because she has much more consistent reading habits 😊 But in anticipation of Thomas' new novel, I finally finished this a..." Read more of this review »
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
"A tour de force in its storytelling prowess. There are plenty of 5 star reviews gushing with praise... thus this 4.5 stars rounding up review may read harsh. Yes 'All The Light We Cannot See' is most definitely worth the hype, but it also has some..." Read more of this review »

Audre Lorde
“The true focus of revolutionary change is never merely the oppressive situations which we seek to escape, but that piece of the oppressor which is planted deep within each of us, and which knows only the oppressors' tactics, the oppressors' relationships.”
Audre Lorde, Sister Outsider: Essays and Speeches

Jami Attenberg
“What if I start making art again? What if I just did that? That is the thing I love, that is the thing I miss the most. For so long I have believed I could never catch up, but now I realize there’s nothing to catch up to, there’s only what I choose to make. There’s still time, I think. I have so much time left.”
Jami Attenberg, All Grown Up

Min Jin Lee
“Living everyday in the presence of those who refuse to acknowledge your humanity takes great courage”
Min Jin Lee, Pachinko

Caroline Knapp
“Things — identifiable objects, products, goals with clear labels and price tags, men you've known for five minutes — make such a handy repository for hungers, such an easy mask for other desires, and such a ready cure for the feelings of edgy discontent that emerge when other desires are either thwarted or unnamed.”
Caroline Knapp, Appetites: Why Women Want

Olivia Laing
“I don't believe the cure for loneliness is meeting someone, not necessarily. I think it's about two things: learning how to befriend yourself and understanding that many of the things that seem to afflict us as individuals are in fact a result of larger forces of stigma and exclusion, which can and should be resisted.”
Olivia Laing, The Lonely City: Adventures in the Art of Being Alone
