Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead by Brene Brown
Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead

Tanya R, January 30, 2013

2012 saw dozens of brilliant new releases, but none changed the way I think and look at life like Daring Greatly. Brene Brown is conversational; she's one of us -- she's just better able to explain why it's OK to feel the way we feel. I love her for it and I love myself more for it, too. Highly recommended for absolutely everyone.

Accordion Crimes by E Annie Proulx
Accordion Crimes

Tanya R, January 18, 2013

Equal parts romantic and bleak, this collection of stories threaded together by a single instrument will haunt readers and break their hearts. It's a fantastic meditation on the connections we have to the generations and races around us, whether we see them or not. Proulx is a champion of both the everyman and the dark underbelly of life, and I always emerge from her books thrilled, inspired and a little depressed. She's brilliant now, and this early work shows that she always has been.
