Guess what I did this weekend?

Bad Feminist: EssaysBad Feminist: Essays by Roxane Gay

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Sometimes a book comes along that captures the zeitgeist of the moment and that you want to put into everyone's hands and scream, "Read this now!" Bad Feminist is that book for 2014. Roxane Gay provides smart, witty, insightful looks at popular culture, race, and gender in contemporary America. Sometimes very funny, sometimes heartbreaking, but always intelligent and human. Highly recommended.



Dog SongsDog Songs by Mary Oliver

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


It's Mary Oliver writing about dogs. I love both Mary Oliver's poetry and dogs so this collection was an easy sell. I spent a lot of time trying not to tear up. Lovely and heart-warming.



3 Sections3 Sections by Vijay Seshadri

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


The winner of the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 2014. There are two long poems (one in prose) in this book that take up much of its length, but all the poems provide meditations springing from the everyday. Travel takes up much of the thinking and many of the poems are beautiful, intelligent, and inspiring.
