Kudos (3rd in Trilogy)

books

Kudos by Rachel Cusk

Beautifully written monologues philosophize, often opaquely, delighting critics, confounding readers.

Note: Reading reviews online, I noticed that everyone posits which unnamed country this takes place in and they all guess somewhere different.

The Female Persuasion

books

The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer.

Sad commentary on feminism’s evolution. Op-ed/coming-of-age mash-up doesn’t work.

Educated (Memoir – Highly Recommended)

books

Educated by Tara Westover.

Violent, dangerous, oppressive family couldn’t defeat advocates determined to help.

Note: After reading, take a closer look at the cover design by Patrik Svensson. It’s genius.

My Squirrel Days (Memoir – Audio Highly Recommended)

books

My Squirrel Days by Ellie Kemper.

Very funny. Quirks, gaffes and determination, exaggerated because that’s funnier.
