The Roommate started working at Milkweed Editions and has continued her streak of bringing great books into my life. Plus she tells me which authors are really nice to her.
- •Goodnight, Mr. Wodehouse - Faith SullivanI've never read a book with so many horrific events that made me feel so warm and cosy inside. I was going through a tough time and spent every day looking forward to reading this before bed.
- •Ordinary Wolves - Seth KantnerI got so excited when I saw that this had blurbs from Louise Erdrich and Barbara Kingsolver, two queens of my high school bookshelf. Brought me back to my summer canoeing up north when I was a very young 18.
- •Silhouette of a Sparrow - Molly Beth Griffin
Too much work. Not enough reading. Gotta reprioritize.
- •Vandal Love - Deni BéchardFamily of big guys and little guys. Lots of boxing. I don't like boxing, but I love reading about it.
- •Radical Equations - Robert MosesStrong numeracy and problem solving skills are so valuable and need to be available to more people.
- •Why Not Me? - Mindy KalingWhat a knockout.
- •The Paris Wife - Paula McLainI wish I liked Hemingway more, but until recently all I could think about when I thought of Hemingway is this guy who went to high school with me who really liked Hemingway and told me I didn't like Fight Club because it was not a movie girls could understand. Now I'll think of him and this book.
- •Modern Romance - Aziz AnsariI was in a meeting at a new job and the check in question was "which celebrity would you want to be best friends with?" I said Aziz Ansari and everyone said "oh boy that is a good answer. I wish I had thought of that."
