Book Reviews

  • Ever year I set a goal to read 50 books 📚. Here's what I've read so far as I near the halfway mark (with a thumbs up if I'd recommend the book to a friend)! I've queued up Walter Benjamin, LeGuin, Frank Herbert, Michael Lewis, Celeste Ng, Dostoevsky. What else should I read? to Tweet
  • I can’t recommend this book enough. I hope everyone reads it because it's THAT GOOD, and also so we can talk about it. 🙂 to Tweet
  • It’s called “The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories” by Ken Liu, who was the translator of the English edition of “The Three Body Problem,” but who is also a brilliant science fiction and fantasy writer (and a daytime lawyer and programmer.) THIS BOOK WAS SO GOOD, people.Link to Tweet
