I'm Evan and I'm not happy unless I'm reading 9 books at once and then forgetting what's going on in each of them. I mostly read nonfiction: world history, nature, any science, and Buddhism are my favorite subjects. I'll read any kind of fiction, but especially horror (which I then regret when I'm home alone), anything lgbt+, and mystery.
I never thought I'd get emotional over the anatomy of a jumping spider's eye. Yong has crafted such a beautiful portrait of our world and those we share it with. The viewpoints of even the smallest, simplest creatures feel wonderous.
Did you know a new dinosaur species is discovered every week? Did you know that long-necked sauropods had hollow bones? You would if you read this book! Don't let the boring adult world lie to you that dinos are only for children- this book is fascinating!
"Neither of us survived, even though I’m still walking.” A difficult and important book about a topic the deserves our attention. These characters, especially Clara, will stay with me for a long time.
(This book cannot be returned.)
Let go of your need to understand exactly what's happening and this'll be a ride. Spooky, mysterious, and trippy with unexpected depth into the nature of identity.
It can be hard to know how to help when someone is upset- and when we're upset, it can be hard to identify what we need. But sometimes, the best way to help is just to listen.
Psychological heists and Victorian lesbians: what more do you need? Great characters, great story, great writing. Choosing only one favorite Sarah Waters book is sinful, but this would have to be mine.
Nature writing has never been more poetic. MacFarlane takes us on a sweeping journey below the surface of our everyday lives and worries, his writing brimming with wonder and the magic of science. There's a lot going on just beneath our feet...
This book reads like the creeping, unnerving climb to the top of a roller-coaster. And when it plunges, it is a chilling, poignant tale of indigenous identity, revenge, and reckoning. Incredibly unique!
This is the best, most beautiful book in the whole entire world. I'm so confident, I'm not even afraid of over-hyping it. These teachings are a lifeline thrown for us all.
Richly informative with all the excitement of scientific inquiry. Simard documents the barriers she faced as a woman in forestry and ecology as she battled her way to her great discoveries.
