40. Geek Love by Katherine Dunn: 5/5 stars (July) This novel has to be one of the most, if not the most, weird reads that I have ever come across. At times grotesque, repulsive, and bizarre, this book balances it's unrelentingly raw nature with a poignant and deeply moving look at the complicated relationships and loves of an American family.
Gift From the Sea. A beautifully written timeless treasure from an amazing hero of a woman reaching across the generations with her words.She exposes her soul and wisdom to every woman today as she relates various sea shells to life. The anniversary edition is printed on pages that just feel good in your hand and heart. I loved the additional chapter that Anne Morrow Lindberg added twenty years after the original book. She inspires me!
