Full of great world-building and a compelling queer romance, I had a hard time putting this one down! Follow Vel and Cae as they navigate court intrigue, societal norms, and new-found love.
This is a story about a man trapped in the arctic, trying to get back to civilization. Catch is, he's also taking care of a young girl as well... I describe this as sentimental survival. The ending will leave you wanting to reread!
He's prolific on social media, since that's where he started making these vintage recipes. He has a distinct, sassy voice and is continuing to keep these iconic foods of the 1900s on people's radars in the 21st century!
A poignant book that asks you to read slow to soak up the info. Kimmerer creates a dialogue between plant bodies, people bodies, and Earth. How do we honor the land and ourselves?
I really enjoyed the genre-bending in this memoir. Harjo uses ode-like poems of Native American mythology to connect her experiences together, weaving a beautiful narrative of pain, joy and rage. Harjo continues to be one of my favs!
Well-known comedian Trevor Noah brings readers in close to show them his experience of growing up in South Africa during apartheid as a mixed race youth. Very eye-opening. I watch his stand up shows a little differently now!
