Nona the Ninth
Locked Tomb: Book #3
“My honest review of this book is basically inarticulate screaming, wailing, gnashing of teeth, rending of garments, etc. I've rarely in my adult life been so INTO a book series--I've re-read and re-listened to Gideon and Harrow multiple times, and Nona will soon join the rotation. These books are bonkers fun and I loved every wild and confusing and sweet and funny moment of Nona, and am eagerly awaiting Alecto! Very glad Nona got her own book--I love her with a similar depth of passion as I do Gideon and Harrow respectively. Remarkable. What the fuck is going ON??? I can't wait.”Gretchen, A Room Of One's Own Bookstore
The Light We Carry
Overcoming in Uncertain Times
“Michelle Obama is back with more words of wisdom, pillars of humility, and just simply Michelle. The Light We Carry is an uplighting book that will help you deal with the emotions and isolation that we have had to deal with during and after the pandemic. But more than that, she has compiled questions that she has been asked again and again, and acknowledges each with personal stories, anecdotes, wisdom, and love. This book feel like you are sitting down with an old friend when you have had a bad day and and just need some love and a hot drink.”Gretchen, Fiction Addiction
If you enjoyed Dept. of Speculation, then you’ll love Dinosaurs.
“Dinosaurs is quiet, Dinosaurs seeps into your bones slowly. Nothing much happens in Dinosaurs by Lydia Millet, and yet she still manages to perfectly capture our current political and cultural moment by following the relatively calm, day-to-day life of a man and the family who lives next to him in suburban Arizona, where the line between the nuclear home and the wild world of untamed creatures is thin. Echoing the strength of Jenny Offill’s Dept. of Speculation, we explore the deep psychology of our main character, Gil, in fractals, jumping between the present, Gil’s past, and his philosophical musings on human interconnectedness, what we owe to those around us, and the synthetic world’s relationship to nature. While only 240 pages, this book is almost too big to think about, in the way that looking at the full scope of our lives, our communities, and our loved ones is too grand for simple comprehension. A richly vast read, Dinosaurs tops Millet’s last novel, The Children's Bible, while carrying on its thematic explorations.”Wulfe, Raven Book Store
