Weather by Jenny Offill

I enjoyed reading this book. It was an e-book provided by my American Lit professor, so I don’t actually have a photo to share. It was sort of bizarre, reading this in 2021. The book was published in February of 2020, and there were just some… Incredibly timely references being made. There was no wayContinue reading “Weather by Jenny Offill”

The Man in the High Castle by Phillip K. Dick

Ok, there are a few books I read this past year that I don’t physically own, so I can’t provide a picture. My professor for this course didn’t want to study something if he couldn’t provide access to all students. Money and accessibility have been hard this past year. I really loved that. He hadContinue reading “The Man in the High Castle by Phillip K. Dick”

The Place of Scraps by Jordan Abel

If you’ve read some of my other posts, I probably sound like a broken record at this point. I wish I liked poetry. There’s a handful of poetry I like, some of which has been shared in other posts. This book wasn’t my cup of tea. It’s about Marius Barbeau, an enthographer (who studied westernContinue reading “The Place of Scraps by Jordan Abel”

The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline

This book was the one book I wish I didn’t read during the pandemic. I adored it to bits and desperately wanted to talk to everyone about this book. Unfortunately, I never got the chance. The way our course was structure, we had a 50 minute zoom class two times a week, and then weContinue reading “The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline”

The Double Hook by Sheila Watson

I hated this book. Hated it. The pandemic is the only reason I finished it. Literally. My professor had structured our classes so that we’d have two Zoom meetings a week, and an independent, asynchronous assignment due on Friday. Normally, this worked really well for me. It provided a chance to apply what we hadContinue reading “The Double Hook by Sheila Watson”

By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept by Elizabeth Smart

The language in this book was absolutely stunning. There was a forward by Yann Martel, and he ended by saying, “read this book aloud, because while love is the theme, language is the plot, the character and the setting. It’s a perfect book to be shared, to be read aloud to someone. And hopefully, asContinue reading “By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept by Elizabeth Smart”

Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

In fall semester of 2020, I took a course in early 20th century Canadian literature. It was probably a good thing we were online, because I cannot shut up about Anne of Green Gables, and the entirety of the Anne series. This course was my second time reading Anne of Green Gables, the first timeContinue reading “Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery”
