December Book Review

February 9, 2016 // monthly book review // No Comments

Saving Fish From Drowning by Amy Tan; 4 stars (out of 5); read in December 2015 I had forgotten how much I like Amy Tan’s writing, and I definitely didn’t remember her being so funny. Still, this takes a serious […]

White is for Witching by Helen Oyeyemi; 4.5 stars (out of 5); read in November 2015 I think this would get 5 stars from me if I knew more about folklore and the specific folktales and literary references she makes […]

Read in March but added¬†late here: Forgive Me If I’ve Told You This Before by Karelia Stetz-Waters; 3.75 stars (out of 5) (I have a bit of a reader’s crush on this author, but I think I remained objective.) I […]
