Data, a Love Story: How I Gamed Online Dating to Meet My Match by Amy Webb
Data, a Love Story: How I Gamed Online Dating to Meet My Match

310screenwriter, June 20, 2013

The perfect neurotic nerd-girl romantic comedy, and I mean that as the highest compliment. Amy Webb is brilliant, funny, accessible... Equal parts Lucille Ball, Larry David, and Mark Zuckerberg, if she were still online I think *I* would try to date her. I'm in love.

The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender

I adore this book and have recommended it to everyone I know. Aimee Bender writes in such a beautiful, descriptive way, without ever feeling too flowery. And though the story involves a bit of fantasy, the emotions are completely real. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll be delighted.

Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
Dark Places

310screenwriter, September 7, 2012

These days it seems like the books that I HAVE to read -- the ones that grab me from the start, that I sit down to read a chapter and lose hours to, that I'm willing to stay up past my bedtime to get just a little more of -- are few and far between. But "Dark Places" did all that and more, with haunting prose, complicated and fascinating characters, and a compelling mystery that was in turns gruesome and heartbreaking and unfolded at just the right pace to allow time to ponder the implications of such a thing in the real world, but also keep me turning the pages.

The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake: A Novel. Aimee Bender by Aimee Bender
The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake: A Novel. Aimee Bender

310screenwriter, January 1, 2012

This novel was so unlike anything else I'd ever read. I related to each character, at each stage of life, and found myself alternately laughing and crying, and thinking about them for weeks afterward. Aimee Bender has such an amazing way of capturing the smallest moments, and of describing them in ways that are both recognizable and uncannily beautiful.

The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender
The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake

310screenwriter, June 16, 2011

This is the first book in a year? Two years, perhaps? That I absolutely haven't been able to put down, that's kept me up at night - in the best way. Aimee Bender has the most amazing way of articulating observations about people that ring so true as to feel instantly familiar, and yet the turns of phrase are so beautiful that the observations feel special and rare.

One of those books that you feel a little sad to reach the end.
