This book possesses such a charmingly memorable rhyme-scheme -- I could probably recite most of it on the spot! As a kid, books like this helped to spark my interest in and appreciation for different cultures around the world!
Beautiful piece of children's poetry. It had a profound impact on my childhood growing up in a place where my full head of curly hair and olive complexion were rarities.
I am a sucker for a fast-paced sci-fi novella, but the irresistible nail in the coffin for me was the presence of a strong black female main character. I loved every second of her journey towards independence.
This is the perfect book for the home cook looking to step up their breakfast skills. Full of easy and tasty recipes that includes my favorite -- the lemon cottage cheese pancakes. In that specific recipe, you can also replace the cottage cheese with ricotta cheese for a different flavor profile!
One of my favorite collection of short stories! This book approaches subjects like war, immigration and technological advancement with such a nuanced and tender touch. Evoking the idea that there is magic within even the most mundane of things, Liu's poignant writing held my attention hostage from start to finish.
This is the best re-imagining of the Persephone myth I have ever read! For context, I have read versions of this myth within romance, literary fiction and even poetry...and this is it! This graphic novel beats them all -- espcially through its unique visuals! The creative use of colors play a role in character building in ways I could have never imagined. I simply loved it.
