The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro (audiobook): Review
I’ve never read anything by Kazuo Ishiguro, though I did see Never Let Me Go (so sad) and have The Remains of the Day on my bookshelf. Those two stories appear to be very different from each other and each different from The Buried Giant. The Buried Giant is a sort of fairy tale. There are ogres, dragons, knights, and magic. This is not an average fairy tale. There is a thread of realism throughout the book and it asks, does forgiveness require us to forget? [read more]

February 2015 Reading Wrap Up and a Look to March
Despite being cold and rather strange, February was a satisfying month in my reading life. I finished 11 books, although two were comic books and one was a deluxe edition of a comic. Without those, I finished eight prose books — about average for me, I’d say. Here’s the list: Fathi, Nazila: The Lonely War (nonfiction) Vaughn, […] [read more]

Favorite Children's Books I Didn't Find Until I Was a Grownup
I'm a children's librarian, so I thought I knew all about children's books. I read voraciously as a child. I became a teacher and tried to keep up with all the new books out for children. As a mom, I read what my kids read. I became a children's librarian in 2003. I became a blogger a few years later. I've been a Cybils judge almost from the start of the Cybils, reading and evaluating children's nonfiction picture books, children's picture books, children's easy readers, and children's early ...

January and February in review
At the beginning of the year, I promised not to make any goals and just let my reading take me on its own journey. I did have a little hiccup in January trying to decide what to read next. Even when there are no goals, or especially when there are no goals, I find it very hard to decide what I want to read next. I got through only 3 books in January, but by February, I had a scheme set up which worked very well for me when it came to deciding what to read next. The "scheme" involved a little ... [read more]

Review: The Snow Globe by Judith Kinghorn
Snow globes are pretty and peaceful. They capture an idealized miniature scene of perfection within their glass orbs. But they aren't reality, no matter how much the world looks like them, especially when snow is drifting down outside the windows.  Reality, unlike the inside of a snow globe, has imperfections, secrets, and disappointments. Judith Kinghorn's newest novel, The Snow Globe, shows just how unlike the quiet, encapsulated scene, life can be. [read more]

"The Bible's Answers to 100 of Life's Biggest Questions" by Norman L. Geisler & Jason Jimenez
Most of us have been there - discussing our faith with someone when they ask a question that just stumps us.  It may be that we don’t know the answer, haven’t thought about it before, or know it but just don’t know how to explain it to someone who doesn’t believe.  Or maybe, it’s us that has the questions.  Whether new to the faith or a life-long believer, there are questions that we still have that no one has been able to answer for us yet.  If any of this is you, than this is the book you ...

Week in Reading: March 2
I'm flabbergasted at the whole it's-March-phenomenon, but even more flabbergasted by the it's-still-snowing-and-icing status in Maryland at the moment. Not cool, climate change. Not cool. The chilly temperatures meant I spent most of Friday night curled up with Orhan's Inheritance (April 7th, Algonquin Books). It's a powerful novel about the Armenian genocide that is haunting me in all the best ways that good books do. [read more]

"It Was Me All Along" by Andie Mitchell
Andie Mitchell's childhood was less than ideal. With an alcoholic, depressed father prone to rages, and a mother who carried the household on her back while working four jobs to pay the bills, food became Andie Mitchell's best friend, baby-sitter, and companion. Most of all, it helped her to deal with how hard things were at home and how alone she felt. Coming to terms with being "the fat girl" in high school, Andie seemed to progress into adulthood with minimal scars. She had boyfriends and ... [read more]

review: rich bitch by nicole lapin
In my quest to most efficiently pay off my students loans (my only debt) while keeping the rest of my life on track, I've read a lot of financial advice books, blogs, etc. Nicole Lapin's Rich Bitch is among the best. She is not one to tell you to give up your latte! Lapin knows a person still needs to have some fun. In keeping with that, Lapin's approach is fun (lots of good anecdotes) and uses layman's terms, but I really appreciated that she doesn't just regurgitate the conventional wi ... [read more]
