Book Review: Velvet Was The Night by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

While I honestly relate to and agree with a lot of the criticisms about this book I’m also not honestly able to say I didn’t like it. I guess whatever spell Moreno-Garcia has on me is there for the long haul (Not that I’m complaining?) because I’ll probably buy every book she ever writes.

Book Review: The Smash-Up by Ali Benjamin

Based on Edith Wharton’s short story, Ethan Frome, in which a visitor to the town of Starkfield, Massachusetts describes the titled character’s daily life as well as his being somewhat of a “fixture” of the town, The Smash Up seeks to modernize and build off its predecessor by imagining Ethan as actually being the narrator in his story, while- one could argue – not actually being the main character anymore.

Book Review: Bright Ruined Things by Samantha Cohoe

Controversial Opinion: Shakespeare’s The Tempest is just not that great of a story. And admittedly I went into this book with pretty low expectations simply because the original version just doesn’t have that much to work with. Boy oh BOY was this thing a surprise. Cohoe took one of Shakespeare’s more lackluster comedies and turned it on it’s head. Can we do this for all of Shakespeare’s works now, please?

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.
