All Roads Lead to Austen: A Year-Long Journey with Jane All Roads Lead to Austen: A Year-Long Journey with Jane
by Amy Elizabeth Smith
Amy's Comments
"English professor Amy Elizabeth Smith takes a sabbatical to spend the year traveling to six countries in Latin America, holding a book group (in Spanish) to discuss one of Jane Austen's novels in each country she visits....Each chapter opens with a beautiful illustration of a Regency style woman in the country Smith is currently visiting. If they were available as bookplates, I would buy them. Instead, I'll settle for the charming travelogue itself." (read more)

Beloved
Beloved
by Toni Morrison

Kristina's Comments:
"I was blown away by the intensity of this book, and I could not put it down. The characters were full of life, strength, and hostility for great reason. I have never thought about this time in history in the same way since. Morrison really opened my eyes to the true horrors that lasted, and the struggles that still continue in some way in the modern day." (read more)

Lentil Underground: Renegade Farmers and the Future of Food in America
Lentil Underground: Renegade Farmers and the Future of Food in America
by Liz Carlisle

Eric's Comments:
"This book does an urgent task well: it confronts urban supporters of sustainable agriculture with the day-to-day issues faced by farmers who want to become sustainable, while surviving economically within the existing ag/food growing and distribution system....In addition to the intriguing stories, 'Lentil Underground' requires us to go beyond the big idea of sustainability and ask, 'How is it going to work on the ground?' We get to watch as these new pioneers figure that out, and rejoice with them in their successes to date. And it all begins with lentils." (read more)

Bad Feminist
Bad Feminist
by Roxane Gay

Nick's Comments:
"It's hard to find books that accurately depict the day-to-day experience of someone who identifies as a feminist. Gay is able to lift the curtain, and show readers that being a feminist is not inherently taking a moral high-ground, but rather, striving to better yourself each day. Gay's use of popular culture makes it fun to read about her various opinions regarding the world, and feminism's place within it." (read more)

A Tale Dark and Grimm
A Tale Dark and Grimm
by Adam Gidwitz

Kassie's Comments:
"This truly delightful version of Hansel and Gretel sparked the black sense of humor I share with my son. The adventures are unexpected, yet true to the Grimm style, and the commentary of the author sprinkled throughout the book will keep you smirking right until the end." (read more)

The Broken Eye (Lightbringer #3)
The Broken Eye (Lightbringer #3)
by Brent Weeks

Elizabeth's Comments:
"Another complicated and fascinating chapter in the life of the Prism and all of the people around him, though I had to review the plots for the first two books as it had been a while since I read them. Once up to speed, I was again completely immersed in the world Weeks creates, and read this in one sitting. Don't start reading this at 9pm unless you don't need to go to work the next day..."

The Abominable
The Abominable
by Dan Simmons

Paul's Comments:
"Dan Simmons is a master of this genre of historical fiction. His description of Everest and climbing there left me freezing and with vertigo, even when I knew I was on solid ground. His use of narrative and facts had me constantly reminding myself this is fiction. It is a page turner with some O. Henry or Frederick Forsyth twists." (read more)
