Book Review: Tokyo Ever After by Emiko Jean

This book is described as a mystery and even as a thriller. I would, however, classify We Run The Tides as contemporary fiction the likes of Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng and Trust Exercise by Susan Choi. It is a story of teenagers that is written as much for adults to enjoy and relate to as for their younger counterparts. And, admittedly, that is my absolute favorite genre of fiction.

Book Review: The Shadows by Alex North

The first third of the story was completely engrossing to me. I honestly couldn’t step away. I loved the uniquely supernatural elements that North chose to weave into a crime that was otherwise fairly ordinary. Around the middle of the book, though, I think the plot loses a lot of its direction. It’s almost tragic. I barely made it over the finish line with this one and could probably have not even read the last few chapters and felt similarly satisfied.

Book Review: Zara Hossain is Here by Sabina Khan

What Zara Hossain is Here illustrates better than most books I’ve read is just how needlessly convoluted and ridiculously backwards our immigration system is and how it isn’t actually benefiting us to do things the way we currently are. I recommend this book first and foremost for this small glimpse into the immigrant experience.

Bio on Girl

Hi! My name is Sarah and I’ve been known to tell the same joke over and over until somebody laughs. Other interests include reading, climbing and pretending I can go another day without doing my laundry. I like going on long rants about climate justice and losing myself in bouts of travel envy. I am a big time proponent of intersectionality and believe in the power of books to make us better humans. I do audio book narration between climbing trips and am on a lifelong search for the best bowl of popcorn. I currently reside on the ancestral lands of the Shoshone-Bannock, known commonly as Idaho.
