How Should a Person Be?: A Novel from Life by Sheila Heti
How Should a Person Be?: A Novel from Life

Lea Anna, March 19, 2013

Heti has a unique voice and I had a hard time putting this book down. Her characters were interesting and raw. I enjoyed reading it.

Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
Where'd You Go, Bernadette

Lea Anna, March 19, 2013

I thought this book was hilarious. I love Bernadette's ranting on Seattle (even though my opinion of the city doesn't align with hers) and how unapologetic she is. I've always enjoyed epistolary novels with the different voices from all the characters. This is an extremely fun read.

Far from the Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity by Andrew Solomon
Far from the Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity

Lea Anna, March 19, 2013

This is quite the tome, but I can't imagine anything that should be removed. The topics that Solomon explores are completely fascinating and he does an excellent job portraying the differences, obstacles, delights and sorrow of parents and children with horizontal identities. His research is in depth and wide. Each chapter leads into the next building off each other which brings in the larger picture of parenting. While I'm not a parent or child with any of these identities, reading this has made me realize how varied relationships can be and how to be a better person towards people with horizontal identities.

Hilda and the Midnight Giant by Luke Pearson
Hilda and the Midnight Giant

Lea Anna, September 30, 2012

I absolutely loved this book! The whimsy of Pearson caught me off guard in the best possible way. I love his artistic style too. The book makes you look around the world around you and take notice as Hilda has to do. So adorable. I want to buy it for everyone I know!

Trickster: Native American Tales: A Graphic Collection by Matt Dembicki
Trickster: Native American Tales: A Graphic Collection

Lea Anna, September 30, 2012

I really enjoyed this book. It's a collection of Native American tales presented in graphic novel form. The tales come from all over America but keep with the one theme of being trickster tales. Each tale is told and drawn by different people and the voices come out clearly in the storytelling. I often felt like I could hear the storyteller speaking the words as I read them. Being someone who could always use more exposure to Native American tales and folklore I found it really engaging.
