FenFen by Daisy Johnson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A collection of short stories about women in rural areas dealing with life, love, men, sex, and parenthood. Living a bit removed from civilization, these women often interact with animals in strange, almost magical ways. Beautifully written.

I'd Rather Be Reading: The Delights and Dilemmas of the Reading LifeI'd Rather Be Reading: The Delights and Dilemmas of the Reading Life by Anne Bogel

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Serious readers will recognize a lot of what Bogel discusses in this brief book of short essays about reading. For a while, Bogel lived next door to a public library and, while she was already a reader, this experience shaped her profoundly. She discusses bonding over books, the joys and lessons of keeping a reader journal, and the powerful role books play in people's lives.
