Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz is a thing of beauty. Its very simplicity is the book’s greatest strength.

Suicide Watch by Kelley York

Is it possible to feel depressed and uplifted at the same time? I love books that make me feel and Suicide Watch hit me in the feels – hard. I was very impressed by Kelley York’s debut novel Hushed but I loved Suicide Watch even more if that is possible. The characters broke my heart into teeny, tiny pieces but now it is time to try and put it all back together again to try and […]
