Holistic Beauty from the Inside Out: Your Complete Guide to Natural Health, Nutrition, and Skincare by Julie Gabriel
Holistic Beauty from the Inside Out: Your Complete Guide to Natural Health, Nutrition, and Skincare

Leslie Richman, April 6, 2015

Holistic Beauty is a really lovely book. There are tons of natural beauty guides available these days, but Julie Gabriel has really created a new collection of information and recipes. She emphasizes, correctly, that Holistic Beauty is not just a reprise of the standard home remedies. The science, research, and tone of the book is truly for today's culture and lifestyle. This is a terrific guide to keep close by for a full spectrum beauty and health routine.

Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love and So Much More by Janet Mock
Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love and So Much More

Leslie Richman, March 26, 2015

I loved Redefining Realness. Janet Mock's story is very easy to identify with, which may sound odd at first since the crux of this biography is something many people will never experience: life as a transgender person. It doesn't take long within the pages of the book to recognize the experiences of gender, identity, acceptance, love, family, and growth that are universal. Mock presents her journey beautifully, with compelling personal words alongside some hard-hitting factual realities about the lives of LGBT youth in our society. A detail that drew me in further is Mock's powerful use of quotes from her favorite authors and books. She has woven together an eloquent, vulnerable, and amazingly powerful story with courage and some crying/laughing moments along the way. I am truly thankful that this book exists to educate and create much needed connections for all people alike.

How to Grow Up: A Memoir by Michelle Tea
How to Grow Up: A Memoir

Leslie Richman, February 11, 2015

An absolute revelation from one of my favorite writers! Michelle Tea is the author of several memoirs, novels, and poetry books. How To Grow Up picks up on the memoir end of things to continue her story into adulthood. This book is a gift and a resource for all of us semi-adults who identified with the author's experiences in Valencia, The Chelsea Whistle, The Beautiful, and so on. When we last read her biographical words, Tea was scrounging around San Francisco and beyond, writing and engaging in the general twenty-something chaos of drugs, partying, and wild women. This book shares the journey into full fledged grown-up land, with all of Tea's characteristic honesty and dark humor. It's truly a gift from the author, a book to be savored when you want to just gobble it all up in one reading. The adult Tea would be proud of such restraint...

Misinterpretation of Tara Jupp by Eva Rice
Misinterpretation of Tara Jupp

Leslie Richman, November 17, 2014

Reading this books is like biting into a sweet treat and realizing that not only is it beautifully frosted, it's full of exotic and special ingredients. I actually stopped and reread whole sections just to soak in the descriptions of Youthquake era life. The characters are developed well, and the locales from rural English countryside to Swinging London are intoxicating. This book is also a delight for any fans of Rice's The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets, as some key characters turn up again. The Misinterpretation of Tara Jupp is a book to savor, a thick novel in which to get blissfully lost.
