This Land will definitely leave you pissed off...in a, I-want-to-save-the-world type of way. Ketcham's writing is quick, dirty and his rants will leave you white-knuckled. A very important read for the future or an aspiring environmentalist.
A tender story of two forceful artists you probably have never heard of - Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe. Just Kids gives you an intimate glimpse into their beautiful friendship and lets you witness the evolution of Patti's success as an artist, singer, writer, and so much more. This is one of my all time favorite books that always leaves me feeling inspired and empowered, as if Patti herself has cast a spell on me.
"...animals don't follow laws, they follow instincts." Roach playfully explores the trials and tribulations of human and wildlife cohabitation. From bear attacks in Aspen, Colorado to elephant attacks in India, Roach continues to blend science and humor while also leaving you questioning our actual standing on the food chain.
Both a blessing and curse to find yourself immersed in Rothfuss' epic and beautifully created world of Name of the Wind. A slow build to say the least, but Rothfuss is very deliberate with his words and you will not notice because the beauty is in the details. The only downside with this series, is that there seems to be no release date in sight for the final installment. Personally, I think it is worth the wait.
I listened to this twice on Libro.fm and needed to have the book for moments when I need a little light. I have never met a book like this-- uhhh, or "a poem about everything." John Koenig compiled a brilliant bundle of words that express certain feelings and emotions one usually can not find the word to describe said emotion. This "dictionary" entranced me and took me to fond moments in my memory, or highlighted certain experiences that I thought I only thought about. Interesting and wonderful.
Wonderfully weird and powerfully nostalgic! A collection of the most odd and hilarious poems and drawings for people of all ages.

HIghly important to revisit as an adult to remind yourself to be silly and creative always.
